Humanist Computing: Modelling with Words, Concepts, and Behaviours

J. M. Rossiter, Humanist Computing: Modelling with Words, Concepts, and Behaviours. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2873. ISSN 0302-9743, pp. 124–152. January 2003. No electronic version available.


n this paper we present a new approach to the modelling of data and knowledge called Humanist Computing. We describe how the general principle of Humanist Computing, namely the modelling with words, concepts and behaviours defines a hierarchy of methods which extends from the low level data-driven modelling with words to the high level fusion of knowledge in the context of human behaviours. We explore this hierarchy and focus on a number of levels in the hierarchy. For each level we describe the general Humanist Computing approach and give specific examples based either on approximations to the real-world or the real-world itself.
