Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

This report is an attempt to collect and synthesize current knowledge about computer-mediated communication systems. It focuses on computerized conferencing systems, for which most evaluational studies have been conducted, and also includes those electronic mail and office support systems for which evaluative information is available. It was made possible only through the participation of the many systems designers and evaluators listed below, who took the time to help to build a common conceptual framework and report their findings in terms of that common framework.


Robotics And The Conservation Of Human Resources, Robert U. Ayres, Steven M. Miller Jan 1982

Robotics And The Conservation Of Human Resources, Robert U. Ayres, Steven M. Miller

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Due to rapid expansion in the field of robotics, policy issues have arisen in regard to developing human skills to deal with the new technology and to deal with the obsolescent human skills which are the inevitable result of this growth pattern. Industrialists, educators, union leaders, and government officials must work cooperatively to insure that the coming changes are made with minimum disruption. Improved training methods and courses have to be developed for the skills needed to control, manage and supervise the new machines. Some of the ways in which this can be accomplished are through offering financial incentives for ...


On The Uniqueness Of Solution Of Magnetostatic Vector‐Potential Problems By Three‐Dimensional Finite‐Element Methods, O. A. Mohammed, W. A. Davis, B. D. Popovic, T. W. Nehl, Nabeel Demerdash Jan 1982

On The Uniqueness Of Solution Of Magnetostatic Vector‐Potential Problems By Three‐Dimensional Finite‐Element Methods, O. A. Mohammed, W. A. Davis, B. D. Popovic, T. W. Nehl, Nabeel Demerdash

Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Research and Publications

In this paper, particular attention is paid to the impact of finite‐element approximation on uniqueness and to approximations implicit in finite element formulations from the uniqueness requirements standpoint. It is also shown that the flux density is unique without qualifications. The theoretical and numerical uniqueness of the magnetic vector potential in three‐dimensional problems is also given. This analysis is restricted to linear, isotropic media with Dirichlet Boundary conditions. As an interesting consequence of this analysis it is shown that, under usual conditions adopted in obtaining three‐dimensional finite‐element solutions, it is not necessary to specify div Ā ...

A Critical Study Of Nonlinear Echo Phenomena, Monish Ranjan Chatterjee May 1981

A Critical Study Of Nonlinear Echo Phenomena, Monish Ranjan Chatterjee

Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Publications

The present thesis attempts to give a concise and critical account of the evolution of the echo phenomena over the last thirty years. Starting with spin and photon echoes, which were among the earliest to be observed and studied, the thesis explores the experimental findings and the models proposed in connection with the more contemporary echo experiments, viz. those involving electroacoustic or polarization echoes in single and polycrystalline piezoelectric materials and in powders. Although the investigations regarding the various mechanisms of short and long term echo formation are by no means complete, a coherent picture is beginning to emerge as ...


Techniques For Goal-Directed Motion, James U. Korein, Norman I. Badler Jan 1981

Techniques For Goal-Directed Motion, James U. Korein, Norman I. Badler

Technical Reports (CIS)

When motions of linkages such as the human body must be specified in terms of joint angle changes, considerable effort is required to acheive a particular goal. We review some techniques useful for the automatic generation of joint angle adjustments from a goal specified in terms of a world coordinate system.

Guide To The Topics System, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Johnson-Lenz, Trudy Johnson-Lenz Jan 1981

Guide To The Topics System, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Johnson-Lenz, Trudy Johnson-Lenz

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

TOPICS is a system for computer-based information exchange among a network of people who share certain areas of interest. The system supports simultaneous discussion of many topics at once by allowing members to raise brief, pointed topics/inquiries and then to enter responses to those inquiries. The responses are shared with all members who express an interest in each topic by selecting it. The system is designed to facilitate the flow of inquiries and responses without overloading members with irrelevant or uninteresting information.

Nested within the Electronic Information Exchange System (EIES), this tailored communication system written in the INTERACT programming ...


The Evolution Of A Tailored Communications Structure : The Topics System, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Johnson-Lenz, Trudy Johnson-Lenz Jan 1981

The Evolution Of A Tailored Communications Structure : The Topics System, Computerized Conferencing & Communications Center, Peter Johnson-Lenz, Trudy Johnson-Lenz

Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center Reports

A computer-based human communication system should be designed for people's use, in response to their perceived needs and communications styles; no single system can meet the needs of all groups and individuals. It might seem that a general electronic mail or computerized conferencing system with a standard set of features should be able to meet most communications needs, in much the same way that the telephone system meets the needs of a wide range of users. However, there are many communications structures found in everyday life, ranging from one-to-many news broadcasts, to the many-to-many patterns of town meetings, from ...


Love, Death And The Hexadecimal, Roger A. Lohmann Dec 1980

Love, Death And The Hexadecimal, Roger A. Lohmann

Faculty Scholarship

This paper analyzes the role of information in social casework practice. Three models of computer-based information processing are discussed: Cybernetic, Management Information Systems and Natural Language Processing. The latter is most consistent with social casework information needs because of its potential to focus on the problems of the meaning of social action.


An Abstract Model Of Unstratified Database System, Takayuki D. Kimura, Jerome R. Cox Jr., Will D. Gillett Nov 1980

An Abstract Model Of Unstratified Database System, Takayuki D. Kimura, Jerome R. Cox Jr., Will D. Gillett

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

A semantic data model is introduced with the following capabilities:

(1) Abstraction mechanisms for aggregation, generalization and classification,

(2) Unstratified control of the database content,

(3) Refined control of intentional and extensional information, and

(4) Extensive semantic consistency checking.

The basic features of the model are illustrated through a scenario of interactions between the user and the database system (using the proposed model) for constructing a simple database on technical publications.


Design Studies Suggested By An Abstract Model For Medical Information System, Jerome R. Cox Jr., Takayuki D. Kimura, P. Moore, Will D. Gillett, Mishell J. Stucki Sep 1980

Design Studies Suggested By An Abstract Model For Medical Information System, Jerome R. Cox Jr., Takayuki D. Kimura, P. Moore, Will D. Gillett, Mishell J. Stucki

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

We have developed a formal model of a database system that is unusual in that it has the ability to represent information about its own structure and to insure semantic consistency. The model distinguishes general laws from instances of events and objects, but many of its mechanisms serve both categories of information. The model form a substrate upon which an information structure appropriate to neonatology is being developed. Some example queries are shown and a design study for an associative memory suggested by the model is described briefly.
