SEA Seminar - Concept Based Modeling of Real-world State Systems

The UCAR Software Engineering Assembly is pleased to present a seminar by Bruce Long of The Slipstream Foundation titled "Concept Based Modeling of Real-world State Systems"

Where: Foothills Lab 2, Small Auditorium
When: Thursday, July 26, 2012 @ 3:10pm

Abstract:
Proteus is a small but powerful language for making descriptions of things. It's a "modeling language." Instead of modeling a lot of data points representing the state of the modeled system, Proteus takes advantage of the fact that information = state (i.e., 256 states=1 byte information). Proteus models represent the way information flows through physical systems such as the information flow from a bike’s pedals through the chain into the wheel then into the ground thus changing the bike's location, i.e., spatial state. In the presentation I’ll show how this works and why representing states as information flow rather than as data points make the language map in an interesting way to some aspects of natural languages and how this might be used to simplify various computing tasks.
