    6. 3fla The first system is intended to be a preliminary one, lacking many of the desired features. It may not be as comprehensive as the current CDC 3100 NLTS$ 3flal Our plan is that it will be expandable and if we can establish a small system, and if the people on the project can begin to use that system immediately, we should be able to accelerate the succeeding evolution by means of "bootstrapping".

    8. It became apparent shortly after the work began that the new techniques of compiler writing make it possible that when any part of the system is described in a formal fashion,that description can be compiled into code of some type. 3c2a This means that the system can be divided into procedures and parameterized to a degree never before possible. This would imply an overall organization and flexibility that could be invaluable to the program as a research projecte' 3c2b To this end we have attempted to formalize the relationships and structures that occur in the type of program we wi 11 be writing for the 50S 940" The terminology and representation techniques that were developed are used as working tools in the rest of the project. 3c3 For storage and retrieval of data we have found some new and interesting algorithms as well as some different approaches to study, for the problem of establishing and retaining relationships within the data.

      divided into procedures parameterized

    9. 3b6 We have formally described the syntax and semantics of our current Control Metalanguage, using in turn a description syntax suitable for driving an experimental syntax~driven compiler. 3b6a We are in the process of bootstrapping this compiler onto the 940 from an ALGOL version operative now on a Burroughs 5500. 3b7 This compiler will operate upon this formal description to produce a program (for itself) which in turn functions as a "control compi ler" for the Control ~1etalanguage. 3b7a This control compiler is designed to produce a "state machine" which will be the work-station input-output control program. 3b7b A given version of this program will produce exactly those responses to each of the user's sequential control actions that were designated by the particular control-language description (written in Control Metalanguage) fed to the control compiler. 3b7c With this facility. we expect to be able very rapidly and easily to add to or modify the control language with which a user interacts with the computer.

    1. Scalable means for the search of relevant web services are essential for the development of in- telligent service-based applications in the future Internet. Key idea of semantic web services is to enable such applications to perform a high-precision search and automated composition of services based on formal ontology-based representations of service semantics. In this paper, we briefly survey the state of the art of semantic web service search.

    6. Even if human beings had some way of attaining objectivity in know}: edge, language itself is too ambiguous to convey it.

      language ambiguous convey

    7. language is essentially metaphorical. As such, it is by its very nature ambiguous; no one can ever be cer­tain, either that he understands what another is saying, or that he is himself understood. Furthermore, ''words are always in statu nascendi.' '4 Not only language, but the whole of culture as well, is continually in a state of transformation. Nothing stands still.

    1. Focusing on the code being open is putting the cart before the horse. In fact, this is one of the reasons why there’s such derision for “source available” licenses; it’s not about the source being open. It’s that the source being open is a necessary, but not sufficient, component of being open source. Now, this is normally framed as a problem of distribution, but I think that many also understand it as a problem of production.

Today wehave to focus on what matters most— on learning andimproving ourselves, and on everything that is directlyrelated to it, including a substantial reallocation of our verylimited material and intellectual resources in favor of targetednatural science research to improve the human nature andthe human communities of various scales and calibers. Wemust not allow our own self-destruction. The gap betweenthe high, and further growing, level of technologicalprogress and our, almost frozen, and egoistic, and thereforeprimitive mentality (in other words, an extremely low levelof altruism of our genotype), caused by our biological originfrom the animal world, will rapidly increase with time.

      Software is a conversation

    2. Some crucial old weaknesses of IBIS remain the same: the danger of getting lost in the web of cross-references, the lack of a 'synoptic' overview of the state of resolution, and the 'logic of the next question", i.e. the problem of prestructuring the possibilities for guiding the designers' deliberations into plausible directions.

    1. The global scientific knowledge base is little more than a collection of (digital) documents●Communication from human authors to readers, inadequate for machines

      Digital documents are inadequate for communication from human authors to readers as well. Annotations help, especially if they are linked to relevant contexts in a Research Knowledge Graph.

    1. Another prospective pathway is the acquisition of semantic scientific knowledge through annotation of text and other content (e.g., figures) at the time of writing the article. We plan to develop this pathway for the current use cases.

      The augmented authoring system via TrailMarks integrates with Hypothes.is. We are using the early prototype to bootstrap our ideas and development and do all related research.

    2. prospective pathway. In prospective pathways, semantic scientific knowledge is available before the article is written.

      We are building an Augmented Authoring system that let's authors write about and link to things of interest in a way that gives rise a knowledge graph dynamically. This emergent knowledge graph captures the semantic contexts and augments the author's ability to understand and be understood.

    1. Don’t be evil? How about can’t be evil? That’s a design principle worth exploring.

      We need to embrace this principle, and make sure that it cannot be exterminated later. see Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil'

    1. “Don’t be evil” has been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct since 2000. When Google was reorganized under a new parent company, Alphabet, in 2015, Alphabet assumed a slightly adjusted version of the motto, “do the right thing.” However, Google retained its original “don’t be evil” language until the past several weeks.

      When the don't be evil is replace with the aspiration to know what's right for the people, and act on it, especially by an entity with the might of Google, is a slippery slope to becoming Big Brother.

    1. I shall not try to settle which is chicken and which is egg: whether we are able to understand the world because it is hierarchic or whether it appears hierarchic because those aspects of it which are not elude our understanding and observation. I have already given some reasons for supposing that the former is at least half the truththat evolving complexity would tend to be hierarchicbut it may not be the whole truth.

    1. The findings show that using a focus+context interface technique in a small display can support readers' incidental memory for spatial location of information within documents. Further, it shows that a scrolling interface for the same size display does not. Since we know that spatial location is important in reading, we can conclude that this alternative technique may well confer some benefits to the reader in terms of better comprehension, content recall and information retrieval when reading fi'om small screens. In short, this technique appears to be successful to some degree in providing readers with some of the "sense of text" they get when reading ffi'om paper. In presenting this study, we are not necessarily advocating this particular implementation of a focus+context interface. Rather, our intention is to point toward a class of techniques which designers might consider as an alternative approach to reading and viewing documents on small displays

    1. A bookseller may want to integrate data coming from different publishers. The data can be imported into a common RDF model, eg, by using converters to the publishers’ databases. However, one database may use the term “author”, whereas the other may use the term “creator”. To make the integration complete, and extra definition should be added to the RDF data, describing the fact that the relationship described as “author” is the same as “creator”. This extra piece of information is, in fact, a vocabulary (or an ontology), albeit an extremely simple one.
