  1. 1. On Non-Prioritized Multiple Belief Revision

    Författare :Li Zhang; Sven Ove Hansson; John Cantwell; Tor Sandqvist; André Fuhrmann; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Non-prioritized multiple revision; Making up one s mind; Choice revision; Descriptor revision; AGM; Believability relation; Multiple believability relation; Belief base; Partial expansion; Multiple contraction; Philosophy; Filosofi; Matematik; Mathematics; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates a sort of non-prioritized multiple revision, the operation of making up one's mind, and its generalization, the operation of choice revision. Making up one's mind about a sentence is a belief change that takes the agent to a belief state in which either the sentence or its negation is believed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Geometric Models of Similarity

    Författare :Mikael Johannesson; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; symmetry; similarity; separable dimensions; prominence; multidimensional scaling; Minkowski metric; machine learning; integral dimensions; familiarity; geometric models; distance metric; asymmetry; conceptual spaces; Computer science; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; Geometry; algebraic topology; Geometri; algebraisk topologi;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation examines and discusses some phenomena related to the geometric representation of similarity. It takes its inspiration from the existing body of empirical research within the fields of perceptual and cognitive psychology, but also connects to certain areas of machine learning. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Technology education and non-scientific technological knowledge

    Författare :Per Norström; Sven Ove Hansson; Per Sandin; Inga-Britt Skogh; Ibo van de Poel; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; rule of thumb; technical knowledge; technological knowledge; technology education; epistemology of technology; design process; modelling;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of two essays and an introduction. The main theme is technological knowledge that is not based on the natural sciences.The first essay is about rules of thumb, which are simple instructions, used to guide actions toward a specific result, without need of advanced knowledge.

  4. 4. Shadows of Cavernous Shades: Charting the Chiaroscuro of Realistic Computing

    Författare :Erik Persson; Data Vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; history of computing; philosophy of technology; philosophy of computing; realistic computing; virtual reality; object-orientation; business objects; software components; client server database access architectures; Computer science; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll;

    Sammanfattning : During the early 1990s, a novel style of programming often referred to as component-oriented programming quickly grew popular as the state-of-the-art in graphical user interface and client/server development on Windows-based personal computers, largely in competition with object-oriented programming, a partly similar, partly different programming paradigm, with which component-orientation is often compared, combined, and confused. Also during the 1990s, the world-wide web spread its arachnoid gossamer over the globe with deep-ranging ramifications for software component technology. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Constructive Systems Science - the Only Remaining Alternative?

    Författare :Arne Kjellman; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :modelling; systems science; constructivism; subjectivism; philosophy of science modelling;

    Sammanfattning : The opposition between the realists and the anti-realists isas old as Western science. The question as to whether the“furniture of the world”we call the“things”is to be considered real or not hasconsistently been at the forefront in the debates about scienceand philosophy. LÄS MER
