Inference Engine for Devices of Colon Classification in AI based Automated Classification System

 

Pijushkanti Panigrahi and A R D Prasad

 

This paper presents the use of various devices enunciated in Colon Classification (CC) to sharpen any isolate idea, especially when a new subject enters into the universe of subjects. Discusses their helpfulness in the automatic classification system, the Viswamitra, designed using Artificial Intelligence techniques with the help of PROLOG language. Discusses the procedure of building numbers for compound isolates using superimposition devices, alphabetical devices, geographic devices etc. Some suggestions are also made to rethink about the rule for alphabetical devices. For example, the system suggests to pick up the first three letters of a single worded term, first two letters from each word of a binomial term and the first letter from each word of a multinomial term to build isolate number using alphabetical device. Suggests some modifications in Colon Classification so that the concept of Analytico Synthetic Classification is used elaborately for information retrieval in the age of ontology.

Attempts to analyse quantitatively 475 papers published by the Bio-Organic Division of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre during 19722002 in various domains like Synthesis (202), Bio-organic Chemistry (100), Biotechnology (70), Natural Products (53), Waste Management (30), Supra-molecular Chemistry (18) and Organic Spectroscopy (2). The highest number of publications in a year were 38 in 2001. The average number of publications per year was 15.3 and the highest collaboration coefficient 1.0 was found in the years 1972,1976-1977,1980-1985,1987,1989-1990 and 1993. The most prolific authors were: A. Banerji (125), V. R. Mamdapur (93), S. Chattopadhyay (86), M. S. Chadha (61), S. K. Nayak (37), A. Chattopadhyay (30), L. P. Badheka (26), G. J. Chintalwar (26), S.K. Ghosh (25), and N. B. Mulchandani (25). The core journals preferred by the scientists to publish their papers include: Indian Journal of Chemistry-B (56), Tetrahedron Letters (20), Synthetic Communications (15), Journal of Organic Chemistry (14), Biotechnology Letters (12), Phytochemistry (12), Tetrahedron Asymmetry (11), Journal of Chemical Society- Perkin Transactions I (10) and Molecules(10).

Cyberinfrastructure: An Opportunity for Education and Implications

for Research Libraries

 

M Natarajan

 

The present century has witnessed growth of information on unprecedented scale. Users therefore look upon the library as not only as a storehouse of information but also as a place where they can filter out their specific requirements from the mammoth pile of random information.

 

The modern tools available for evaluating the information utilize the computerization of the library system. In order to implement the computerization process successfully it is necessary to visualize the problem comprehensively and take informed decision on a number of issues. Case studies of library computerization may provide valuable insight in this regard.

Citation Mapping of Published Literature of Embelia ribes

 

Rekha Mittal, Moin Ahmad and Gian Singh

 

Vidang, a well known drug in ayurvedic system of medicine, is obtained from the medicinal plant, Embelia ribes. Through citation mapping, a comprehensive bibliography has been compiled to study the research work done on this plant in India. Citation maps allow browsing through titles, and provides the users with some directions into the information available. It may be useful for researchers to identify areas where there could be more scientific study.
