A Semantic-Driven Framework for Facilitating Reusability and Interoperability of Construction Simulation ModelingDownload
This research describes a semantic-driven framework to facilitate reusability and interoperability of simulation and modeling of construction processes. An immense amount of knowledge of construction processes and simulation modeling is needed to develop construction simulation models. Knowledge...
We propose a framework for semi-automatically verifying relational database schema mappings for data exchange. Schema mappings for data exchange formally describe how to move data between a source and target database. State-of-the-art schema mapping tools propose several mappings, but require...
Building computer agents that can utilize the meanings in the text of Web documents is a promising extension of current search technology. Concept-based information retrieval applies "intelligent" agents to identify Web documents that match user queries. A new concept-based information retrieval...
Associative classification, linguistic entity relationship extraction, and description-logic representation of biomedical knowledge applied to MEDLINEDownload
MEDLINE, a large and constantly increasing collection of biomedical article references, has been the source of numerous investigations related to textual information retrieval and knowledge capture, including article categorization, bibliometric analysis, semantic query answering, and biological...

This thesis first provides an explication of Bernard Stiegler’s implicit critique of Martin Heidegger’s account of the independence entities. After accomplishing this explication, an explanation and justification of Stiegler’s theory of entities, in the form of technology, is given to see if it...
This thesis aims to contribute to the study of the history of 20th century continental philosophy, centering in particular on Heidegger’s “being-historical” writings of the 1930s and the 1940s, with a special emphasis on his Contributions to Philosophy (of the Event). In particular, this thesis...
This thesis deals with Martin Heidegger’s critique of the Cartesian problem of scepticism in Being and Time. In addition to the critique itself, Heidegger’s position with regards to the sense and task of phenomenological research, as well as fundamental ontology, is discussed as a necessary...
