A Natural Language Interface for Computer-Aided Design by Tariq Samad (auth.)

By Tariq Samad (auth.)

The creation of desktop aided layout and the proliferation of desktop aided layout instruments were instrumental in furthering the state-of-the­ paintings in built-in circuitry. carrying on with this development, even though, calls for an emphasis on developing elementary environments that facilitate the interplay among the clothier and the CAD device. the conclusion of this truth has caused investigations into the appropriateness for CAD of a few user-interface applied sciences. One form of interface that has hitherto no longer been thought of is the common language interface. it really is our competition that normal language interfaces may resolve a number of the difficulties posed via the expanding quantity and class of CAD instruments. This thesis represents step one in a examine attempt directed in the direction of the eventual improvement of a usual language interface for the area of desktop aided layout. The breadth and complexity of the CAD area renders the duty of constructing a traditional language interface for the full area past the scope of a unmarried doctoral thesis. for that reason, we've initally focussed on a sub-domain of CAD. in particular, we have now constructed a common language interface, named Cleopatra, for circuit-simulation post-processing. In different phrases, with Cleopatra a circuit-designer can extract and manage, in English, values from the output of a circuit-simulator (currently SPICE) with out manually having to head throughout the output documents produced by means of the simulator.

Architectural Design - New Working Spaces

New operating areas positive factors structure created for the tertiary zone which has turn into a scorching subject at the present. the applying of recent computing device applied sciences has prompted a revolution within the manner that we paintings, which in flip has triggered a revolution within the means are accommodated at paintings. As this e-book demonstrates a extra friendly operating atmosphere is being created in the course of the software of standards corresponding to clever development, ergonomics, more advantageous air con structures, new cladding tools, ecological potency, overall healthiness issues, and keep watch over of sunshine depth.

Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software

This isn't a booklet approximately particular applied sciences. It deals readers a scientific method of domain-driven layout, providing an intensive set of layout top practices, experience-based suggestions, and primary ideas that facilitate the improvement of software program initiatives dealing with complicated domain names. Intertwining layout and improvement perform, this ebook accommodates various examples in keeping with real tasks to demonstrate the appliance of domain-driven layout to real-world software program improvement.

Practical Ideas for Small Spaces

The issues with housing this day are universal wisdom nearly internationally. Small flats, excessive costs, more and more heterogeneous households, and so forth. those difficulties, which take place specifically in city environments, have an effect on an more and more excessive percent of the inhabitants. the purpose of useful rules for Small areas is to supply readers with useful and practicable principles to conform their small houses to the several wishes and paces in their lives.

Sample text

It is the wh-fronting construction that really demonstrates the potential ambiguity of case-role instantiation convincingly. In the following sentences, the portions of the sentences until the verb are identical, yet the initial noun-phrase (what) fills a different case-role in each: What did John give the dog? What did John give the croissant to? What did John give the croissant to the dog for? What did John give the croissant to the dog in? What did John give the croissant to the dog on? If a case-frame is present on "'buff'" when a verb is encountered, and if the case-frame is considered attachable to the verb, then Cleopatra will not leave it on "'buff"', even if the case-role of the case-frame cannot be uniquely determined at that point.

One of these tests prospective casefillers individually, without examining the other case-fillers, while the other tests collections of prospective case-fillers. These latter tests allow the encoding of the kinds of constraints that are needed for accepting or rejecting sentences such as (S11) - (S1e). ) or the word -there" in its existential sense. Predicate: (lambda (x) t) A null constraint. -bodies, procedural bodies in which the variable (x here) is bound to some value before the expressions are evaluated.

When that happens, copies need to be made of some frames. Since the new parse-states differ from each other, the copies of particular frames will also differ. Frames which referred to the original copy of a frame will need to be updated by substituting the new id (for the new copy) in place of the old id (for the original copy). By keeping all the real id's on the connections: slot alone, we avoid having to search all the other slots for the old real id. The surrogate id's never change; the same surrogate id, when used after an update, will now access a different frame.
