This paper presents and evaluates different computational models for review rating prediction. The models rely solely on star ratings from an annotated corpus of customer reviews of mobile apps that were collected from the Google Play Store in a related work. Fine-granular opinions and the classification of their sentiment orientation were already...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
There are several reasons for the lack of a consensus definition of (machine) intelligence. The constantly evolving nature and the interdisciplinarity of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) field, together with a historical polarization around what intelligence means, are among the most widely discussed rationalizations, both within the community and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We posit that the lack of consensus definitions of (machine or artificial) intelligence might be affected by the lack of knowledge of conceptual analysis and other well-investigated theories. Acute contextualization of the concepts that are defined may also be an issue. Accordingly, in this two-part paper, we review some basic concepts from across...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms permeate many of the systems and devices we interact with in everyday life. Since its conception as a field, a wide variety of these intelligent algorithms have sought to simulate or even surpass human cognitive abilities and behavior. However, there is as yet no widely accepted definition of what intelligenc...

Narratives about intelligent artefacts have influenced both the public’s imaginary and the actual development of the AI field since its foundation. Yet, in times where the field seems to be flourishing on the one hand, but rushing into an AI winter on the other, factual narratives about AI applications and advancements are more essential than ever....

No trust, no use? Oft wird Vertrauen als kritischer Erfolgsfaktor propagiert, wenn es um die Nutzung von neuen Technologien geht, vor allem wenn es sich um intelligente Systeme, sogenannte KI (Künstliche Intelligenz) handelt. Diese finden nämlich immer mehr Eingang in die heutige Gesellschaft, sowohl im privaten (z. B. Einkaufen mit Amazons KI-basi...

Full-text available
Much has been speculated about intelligent artefacts and their potential abilities to automate entire industries or at least a broad variety of human-related tasks and processes. Recent advancements in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics have fueled these views, thereby propelling hyped narratives, unfounded fears, and dystopian...

Traditionally, educational institutions do not ask future learners about their needs and interests when developing new study programmes, nor they do involve learners-to-be in the conceptual processes of those programmes. The voices and expectations of whole generations, mostly influenced by cultural, societal, and technological factors, might fade...

Writing science effectively requires a big amount of practice, even among experts. Yet, reading scientific texts or those on scientific writing is not enough; for scientific argumentation, evidence-based writing, and high-quality content creation are essential writing processes that students must both learn and practice. In previous work on support...

Scientific writing in higher education is not only a prerequisite for participation in scientific discourse, but also forms the basis for the development of one's own thinking. Despite the sometimes extensive writing tasks in various study programs, the results are often unsatisfactory. The reasons for this could be many, but one of the most pressi...

Intelligence remains ill-defined. Theories of intelligence and the goal of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) have been the source of much confusion both within the field and among the general public. Studies that contribute to a well-defined goal of the discipline and spread a stronger, more coherent message, to the mainstream media, policy-makers, in...

Transformative technologies are invading our lives ubiquitously. The citizens of the future will no longer be impacted by technology only in a passive way; they would need to transform and further develop it, actively. However, this will not be possible if the awareness of the importance to educate young generations in their future roles of active...

Recent studies into ‘digital learners’ have pointed to the high level of digital skills which many UK and US based students entering HE are now demonstrating (White & Beetham, 2013; Pew, 2013). However while students may display high levels of functional skill or competency in digital media this is often evidenced in a narrow corridor of involvemen...

The index of a Differential-Algebraic equation (DAE) describes the expected difficulties solving such an equation. The tractability index bases on a linearization of the DAE along a given trajectory. Using these Jacobian matrices of the linearization the termination of a matrix sequence determines the index of the DAE. Because of the drawbacks of s...
