Topics from this paper

Cooperative Design, Visualization, and Engineering
TLDR
Approaches to the efficient derivation and rule induction of graph-rewriting-based design automation applications that can be used in collaborative environments and an important issue: preservation of confidentiality are highlighted. Expand
The cognitive efficacy of diagrammatic representations in logical reasoning(審査報告)
TLDR
This experiment is conducted to check whether the difference between the Linguistic and Venn groups was due to the Venn diagrams preventing interpretational errors in categorical sentences. Expand
Discovering interobserver variability in the cytodiagnosis of breast cancer using decision trees and Bayesian networks
TLDR
There are considerable differences in all tests when a specific classifiers uses the single-observer dataset compared to those when this same classifier uses the multiple-ob server dataset, suggesting that different observers see different things: a problem known as interobserver variability. Expand
Dynamic visualization variables in animation to support monitoring of spatial phenomena
TLDR
Developing methods by which these variables can be used to acquire information from imagery was a main objective, to gain knowledge of cognitive processes and strategies applied by domain experts while working with a prototype. Expand
Visualization in e-Negotiations: An Inspire ENS Graph is Worth 334 Words, on Average
TLDR
The results of the effect of the provision of graphical representation on reaching agreement in bilateral negotiation using the Inspire ENS system compared to negotiations conducted using the same system without graphical representation are reported. Expand
What Are the Advantages of Hyperproof-like Reasoning Systems?
  • Martin Frické
  • Computer Science, Mathematics
  • The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
  • 1997
TLDR
Analysis of Hyperproof-like systems in terms of languages interpreted over a common conceptual scheme and translation relations between logical expressions in such languages shows that it has no real theoretical merits apart from its admittedly important pragmatic advantages. Expand
Principles For Aiding Complex Military Decision Making
Paper presented to the Second International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium, Monterey, Ca.
Uses of Diagrams in Solving Physics Problems
TLDR
The many roles that diagrams seem to play in human problem solving, the relative strengths and weaknesses of computers and human problem solvers for reasoning with diagram-like representations, and ways in which some of the uses by humans might be implemented in computer programs are considered. Expand
COMICS: Cartoon Visualization of Omics Data in Spatial Context Using Anatomical Ontologies
TLDR
Unlike previous tools that have used anatomical ontologies to interpret imaging data in several animal models, including zebrafish, COMICS is designed to take spatially resolved data generated by dissection or fractionation and display this data in visually clear anatomical representations rather than large data tables.
