  • 2010 IEEE 18th International Conference on Requirements Engineering (RE)

    Software systems in today s multi-faceted world are as diverse as the people who use them. While some are built according to rigorous government regulations, others must be delivered quickly to meet time-to-market deadlines or must be responsive to changing business needs. From a requirements engineering perspective there is certainly no one-size-fits-all solution. Diversity is also prevalent across software development teams where end-users, developers, and other stakeholders often c

Using Word Association to Detect Multitopic Structures in Text Documents

André Klahold; Patrick Uhr; Fazel Ansari; Madjid Fathi IEEE Intelligent Systems, 2014

A new method for detecting multitopic structures in text documents, called Associative Gravity, is based on a text-mining method entitled CIMAWA, which imitates the human ability of word association. Specifically, Associative Gravity utilizes word association to detect different topics in a text. The authors named it Associative Gravity because of its resemblance to the physical law of gravitation, that is, ...


Cautious, but optimistic: An ethnographic study on location and content of primary care providers using electronic medical records

Christopher L. Schaefbauer; Katie A. Siek 2011 5th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare (PervasiveHealth) and Workshops, 2011

The integration of technology into primary care facilities has the potential to improve patient care, but also may disrupt provider workflows. Technologies that are designed to fit the use patterns and ideal interactions of providers will be better accepted and utilized. Our ethnographic study of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) usage by 10 primary care providers identified where providers utilize the ...

The 3D-COFORM project will provide solutions aiming at making 3D documentation a common practice in the cultural heritage sector. This ...


The New Hybrid Library. Audiovisual and Digital Resources.

Alicia Garcia Medina Automated Production of Cross Media Content for Multi-Channel Distribution, 2007. AXMEDIS '07. Third International Conference on, 2007

The aim is to present how audiovisuals, a resource that contains digital components can be catalogued, indexed and preserved. Nowadays, the development of the internet has rapidly increased the volume of artistic literature and the exchange of information. But information is volatile and we must find a way to incorporate this information into our libraries. We argue that a computerized ...

  • Are Writers Obsolete in the Computer Industry?

    Writing as a discrete act may be obsolete in the computer industry. In the past, writers have served as speechmakers for engineers and as representatives of users. They made technology accessible by means of printed book s and on- line documentation. Now many of the junctions of writers have been taken up by software developers and by users. The definition of "suppors" for users has expanded beyond providing documentation to include building products that do not need much documentation. By way of prototyping, developers build products with the active participation of users. and in a further extension, users write the documentation they need. These shifts in job responsibilities have already had substantial impact on the profession of technical communication.

    In this book, Ronald Day offers a critical history of the modern tradition of documentation. Focusing on the documentary index (understood as a mode of social positioning), and drawing on the work of the French documentalist Suzanne Briet, Day explores the understanding and uses of indexicality. He examines the transition as indexes went from being explicit professional structures that mediated users and documents to being implicit infrastructural devices used in everyday information and communication acts. Doing so, he also traces three epistemic eras in the representation of individuals and groups, first in the forms of documents, then information, then data. Day investigates five cases from the modern tradition of documentation. He considers the socio- technical instrumentalism of Paul Otlet, "the father of European documentation" (contrasting it to the hermeneutic perspective of Martin Heidegger); the shift from documentation to information science and the accompanying transform tion of persons and texts into users and information; social media's use of algorithms, further subsuming persons and texts; attempts to build android robots--to embody human agency within an information system that resembles a human being; and social "big data" as a technique of neoliberal governance that employs indexing and analytics for purposes of surveillance. Finally, Day considers the status of critique and judgment at a time when people and their rights of judgment are increasingly mediated, displaced, and replaced by modern documentary techniques.

    Text, ConText, and HyperText presents recent developments in three related and important areas of technical communication: the design of effective documentation; the impact of new technology and research on technical writing; and the training and management of technical writers.The contributors are all authorities drawn from universities and industry who are active in defining and analyzing the role of computing in technical documentation and the role of documentation in the development of computing technology. This first synthesis of their diverse but related research provides a unique conceptualization of the field of computers and writing and documentation.The book first examines techniques for writing online documentation and the value of usability testing. It presents new research into the impact of human factors in screen design and designing online help, and looks at the impact of desktop publishing on documentation, and at visual literacy and graphic design.Artificial intelligence and documentation processing are then addressed with discussion of data acquisition, automated formatting in expert systems, and document databases; the uses of HyperText in documentation; and the future of technical writing in this new environment.Text, ConText, and HyperText concludes by examining the training and management of documentation groups: how they "learn to write" in industry, management of large-scale documentation projects and their effect on product development; and the "two cultures" of engineering and documentation.Edward Barrett is a Lecturer in the Writing Program at MIT. Text, ConText, and HyperText is included in the Information Systems series, edited by Michael Lesk.
