Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)
Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)

'Metonymy' is a type of figurative language used in everyday conversation, a form of shorthand that allows us to use our shared knowledge to communicate with fewer words than we would otherwise need. 'I'll pencil you in' and 'let me give you a hand' are both examples of metonymic language. Metonymy serves a wide...

Cognitive Radio Technology (Communications Engineering)
Cognitive Radio Technology (Communications Engineering)
Cognitive radio technology is a smarter, faster, and more efficient way to transmit information to and from fixed, mobile, other wireless communication devices. Cognitive radio builds upon software-defined radio technology. A cognitive radio system is 'aware' of its operating environment and automatically adjusts itself to maintain desired...

Information Visualization: Beyond the Horizon
Information Visualization: Beyond the Horizon

Information visualization is not only about creating graphical displays of complex and latent information structures; it contributes to a broader range of cognitive, social, and collaborative activities. This is the first book to examine information visualization from this perspective.

This 2nd edition continues the unique and ambitious...

A Computational Model of Natural Language Communication: Interpretation, Inference, and Production in Database Semantics
A Computational Model of Natural Language Communication: Interpretation, Inference, and Production in Database Semantics
Everyday life would be easier if we could simply talk with machines instead of having to program them. Before such talking robots can be built, however, there must be a theory of how communicating with natural language works. This requires not only a grammatical analysis of the language signs, but also a model of the cognitive agent, with...

Value-Based Software Engineering
Value-Based Software Engineering

The IT community has always struggled with questions concerning the value of an organization’s investment in software and hardware. It is the goal of value-based software engineering (VBSE) to develop models and measures of value which are of use for managers, developers and users as they make tradeoff decisions between, for example,...

Artificial Cognition Systems
Artificial Cognition Systems
The central questions confronting artificial intelligence and cognitive science revolve around the nature of meaning and of mind. Minds are presumed to be the processors of mental content, where that content has the capacity to influence our speech and other behavior. The hard part is figuring out how that is done. Mental states must exercise...
New Developments In Parsing Technology (Text, Speech and Language Techology)
New Developments In Parsing Technology (Text, Speech and Language Techology)
Parsing can be defined as the decomposition of complex structures into their constituent parts, and parsing technology as the methods, the tools and the software to parse automatically. Parsing is a central area of research in the automatic processing of human language. Parsers are being used in many application areas, for example question...
Human-in-the-Loop Simulations: Methods and Practice
Human-in-the-Loop Simulations: Methods and Practice

Both the editors of this book were exposed to human-in-the-loop simulations while pursuing their doctoral degrees in the Center for Human-Machine Systems at Georgia Tech. In fact, S. Narayanan served as Ling Rothrock’s teaching assistant for the simulation course taught by Prof. Christine Mitchell. It has been over 15 years...

Theories of Information, Communication and Knowledge: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Theories of Information, Communication and Knowledge: A Multidisciplinary Approach

This book addresses some of the key questions that scientists have been asking themselves for centuries: what is knowledge? What is information? How do we know that we know something? How do we construct meaning from the perceptions of things? Although no consensus exists on a common definition of the concepts of information and...
