Mapping knowledge domains | PNAS

The term “mapping knowledge domains” was chosen to describe a newly evolving interdisciplinary area of science aimed at the process of charting, mining, analyzing, sorting, enabling navigation of, and displaying knowledge. This field is aimed at easing information access, making evident the structure of knowledge, and allowing seekers of knowledge to succeed in their endeavors. … Read moreMapping knowledge domains | PNAS

Introduction to USD

What is USD? Pipelines capable of producing computer graphics films and games typically generate, store, and transmit great quantities of 3D data, which we call “scene description”.  Each of many cooperating applications in the pipeline  (modeling, shading, animation, lighting, fx, rendering) typically has its own special form of scene description tailored to the specific needs … Read moreIntroduction to USD

The Simplest Approach to Subject Classification

Museums, galleries, archives, and many libraries – as well as a host of online databases of various types – seek a simpler approach to subject classification. This paper poses the question: “What is the simplest approach to subject classification?” It suggests a synthetic approach which pursues a sentence-like approach to classification. Such an approach not coincidentally has the added advantage of best capturing the nature of a work.

Understanding Clock: Processor Base and Boost Speeds | B&H Explora

These Turbo modes are essentially over-clocks for the masses, but you don’t choose the speed; the system does. When your computer realizes that it needs more clock cycles (say, when you’re trying to render a video), then it will crosscheck the need for speed with its temperature. If it’s cool enough, that means there’s thermal … Read moreUnderstanding Clock: Processor Base and Boost Speeds | B&H Explora

Subject Classifications in the Scientific and Overall Digital World

In the present work we discuss opportunities, problems, tools and techniques encountered when interconnecting discipline-specific subject classifications, primarily organized as search devices in bibliographic databases, with general classifications originally devised for book shelving in public libraries.We first state the fundamental distinction between topical (or subject) classifications and object classifications. Then we trace the structural limitations … Read moreSubject Classifications in the Scientific and Overall Digital World
