    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-10-14
    Carlos León, Pablo Gervás, Pablo Delatorre, Alan Tapscott

    Evaluating the extent to which computer-produced stories are structured like human-invented narratives can be an important component of the quality of a story plot. In this paper, we report on an empirical experiment in which human subjects have invented short plots in a constrained scenario. The stories were annotated according to features commonly found in existing automatic story generators. The

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-09-19
    Masanori Fujita, Hiroto Inoue, Takao Terano

    We propose a new way of using the betweenness centrality measure with co-author networks from an academic literature database to evaluate young researchers. It is difficult to discover and evaluate promising young researchers with indexes based on the number of cited papers, such as the h-index to which published papers introduce a lag and whose impact only becomes apparent after they have been cited

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-09-05
    Philipp Wicke, Tony Veale

    Stories are made to be told, yet the computational generation of stories has principally focused on stories as textual artifacts, rather than on the telling, or indeed the performance, of stories. The performative aspect of stories, in which a teller brings a tale to life, requires more than the written word. We humans use our bodies to enact a story, through the apt use of motion, space, timing and

    Shinsaku Izumi; Shun-ichi Azuma

    This paper investigates the control of multi-agent systems inspired by chemotaxis of microorganisms. Chemotaxis is a biological phenomenon wherein organisms in an environment are attracted to food but move away from toxins. The problem addressed here is a formation control problem, i.e., a design problem of distributed controllers wherein the relative positions of agents become the desired positions

  • Distributed Computing Theory for Molecular Robot Systems
    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-05-03
    Yukiko Yamauchi

    Distributed computation consists of local computations and their interactions. We consider a molecular robot system as a distributed system composed of mobile computing entities with very weak capabilities, i.e., computing entities are anonymous (indistinguishable), oblivious (memory-less), and uniform (following a common local computation rule). The key property of such a distributed system is self-organization

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-04-30
    Sonya Ouali; Mohamed Mhiri; Faiez Gargouri

    Owing to the absolute significance of the business process management, companies have become thoroughly oriented toward a good modeling of the business processes. Although the business process modeling is a substantial part in workflow automation, business process designers often misunderstand domain concepts or relationships due to their lack of precise business knowledge. Such a semantic equivocation

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-04-29
    Zirun Zhu; Hsiang-Shang Ko; Yongzhe Zhang; Pedro Martins; João Saraiva; Zhenjiang Hu

    Language designers usually need to implement parsers and printers. Despite being two closely related programs, in practice they are often designed separately, and then need to be revised and kept consistent as the language evolves. It will be more convenient if the parser and printer can be unified and developed in a single program, with their consistency guaranteed automatically. Furthermore, in certain

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-03-19
    Nathanael Aubert-Kato; Leo Cazenille

    This tutorial paper focuses on the design, simulation, and optimization of polymerase–exonuclease–nickase (PEN) toolbox systems. The PEN toolbox is a molecular programming framework that relies on the interaction between DNA molecules and enzymes to produce highly non-linear dynamic systems. The flip side of that expressivity is that the design of systems relies heavily on trial-and-error, thus calling

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-03-11
    Elspeth Edelstein; Jeff Z. Pan; Ricardo Soares; Adam Wyner

    In this paper, we propose Knowledge Graph (KG), an articulated underlying semantic structure, as a semantic bridge between humans, systems, and scientific knowledge. To illustrate our proposal, we focus on KG-based intelligent survey systems. In state-of-the-art systems, information is hard-coded or implicit, making it hard for researchers to reuse, customise, link, or transmit structured knowledge

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2020-02-08
    S. Subhashree; P. Sreenivasa Kumar

    Although several RDF knowledge bases are available through the Linked Open Data (LOD) initiative, the ontology schema of such linked datasets is not very rich. In particular, they lack object properties. The problem of finding new object properties between any two given classes has not been investigated in detail in the context of Linked Data. In the first part of this paper, we present DARO (Detecting

  • Mining High-Average Utility Itemsets with Positive and Negative External Utilities
    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-11-07
    Irfan Yildirim; Mete Celik

    High-utility itemset mining (HUIM) is an emerging data mining topic. It aims to find the high-utility itemsets by considering both the internal (i.e., quantity) and external (i.e., profit) utilities of items. High-average-utility itemset mining (HAUIM) is an extension of the HUIM, which provides a more fair measurement named average-utility, by taking into account the length of itemsets in addition

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-09-05
    Sowmya S. Sundaram; Savitha Sam Abraham

    A method of representing algebraic age word problems for automated solving has been proposed. Schemas pertinent to the domain have been represented as logical predicates and functions and used as an intermediate representation. Though data-driven methods have dominated the paradigm for solving word problems recently, we demonstrate that representing these word problems formally has advantages. We illustrate

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-09-04
    Praveen Alapati; Madhu Mutyam; Swamy Saranam

    We propose algorithms to perform operations concurrently on treaps in a shared memory multi-core environment. Concurrent treaps hold the advantage of using nodes’ priority for maintaining the height of the treaps. To achieve synchronization, concurrent treaps make use of fine-grained locking mechanism along with logical ordering and physical ordering of nodes’ keys. We initially study the throughput

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-07-24
    Masaki Suwa

    “Maai” is a concept that represents a relation holding spatially and temporarily among more than two people or things, at least one of which is a human being. Forming a state of “maai” means to read the intentions or movements of the other, make adjustment of physical and/or mental distance, and organize a proper way of being there physically and mentally. In the modern era in which people make free

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-04-24
    Katsumi Inoue; Chiaki Sakama

    Given an observation or a goal, abduction infers candidate hypotheses to explain the observation or to achieve the goal. In this paper, we consider disjunctive abduction, in which disjunctions play important roles in abduction. Machine-oriented intelligent systems can utilize disjunctive abduction in many ways. For example, consider the case in which multiple explanations exist for an observation.

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-04-15
    Masaki Suwa

    Dr. Furukawa had a sharp view in pinpointing that the crucial issue in skill science lies in discovering missing parts, that it is an act of abductive thinking, and that logic programming can be best used to encourage people, who intend to learn embodied skills, to think and feel more than without it. In the wake of the grief that our communities lost Dr. Furukawa, discussions on implications that

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-04-03
    Tsutomu Fujinami; Shohei Hidaka

    Skill is an action requiring intelligence. It has been debated whether motions require representations because they are thought to describe procedures. The dichotomy between thought and execution has puzzled us because we are unsure how thinking process intervenes with execution and how execution is understood by thinking process. We have in other words no logical theory of executions. We propose an

    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2019-04-03
    Masaki Suwa

    We argue that studies on embodied knowledge should deal with the process of how knowledge is learned, if we consider the essential meaning of the notion of “embodiment”. In other words, those studies are supposed to deal with the flow of time as the learner lives a life, because learning of embodied knowledge is intrinsically embedded in minds, social contexts, and life. Then, in examinations of learning

    A knowledge push system as a proactive method of knowledge management, and is an effective way to push knowledge to designers in the product design process. Knowledge push can help to improve design efficiency and quality, but the knowledge pushed to designers is less applicable in engineering scenarios. To improve the quality of knowledge push, we propose the trust-aware and item-cluster strategies

    Neural network is one of the best tools for data mining tasks due to its high accuracy. However, one of the drawbacks of neural network is its black box nature. This limitation makes neural network useless for many applications which require transparency in their decision-making process. Many algorithms have been proposed to overcome this drawback by extracting transparent rules from neural network

    Thanks to a number of efficient implementations, the use of logic formalisms for problem-solving has been increased in several real-world domains. This is the case, for instance, of action languages, such as planning domain definition language (PDDL), or answer set programming (ASP), which is a well-established declarative problem-solving paradigm that became widely used in AI and recognized as a powerful

  • Understanding Metaphors Using Emotions

    Metaphors convey unspoken emotions and perceptions by creatively applying an evocative concept from the source domain to illustrate some latent idea in the target domain. Prior research on nominal metaphor interpretation focused on identifying those properties of the source domain which are highly related to the target domain concepts to discover the most likely sense of the metaphor’s usage. In this

  • FliPpr : A System for Deriving Parsers from Pretty-Printers
    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2018-08-27

    When implementing a programming language, we often write a parser and a pretty-printer. However, manually writing both programs is not only tedious but also error-prone; it may happen that a pretty-printed result is not correctly parsed. In this paper, we propose FliPpr, which is a program transformation system that uses program inversion to produce a CFG parser from a pretty-printer. This novel approach

  • Reversing Event Structures

    Reversible computation has attracted increasing interest in recent years. In this paper, we show how to model reversibility in concurrent computation as realised abstractly in terms of event structures. Two different forms of event structures are considered, namely event structures defined by causation and prevention relations and event structures given by an enabling relation with prevention. We then

  • On Implementing the Push-Relabel Algorithm on Top of Pregel
    New Gener. Comput. (IF 0.889) Pub Date : 2018-08-22

    Although the vertex-centric model originating from Pregel has been well studied, its applications are limited and biased. While PageRank, which can be formalized as a network flow problem, is one of the most common (or overused) applications, the maximum flow problem, which is the most fundamental problem on flow networks, has never been dealt with. In this work, in order to analyze the applicability
