Mental model

mental model is an explanation of someone’s thought process about how things work in the real world. It is a representation of the surrounding world, the relationships between its various parts and a person’s intuitive perception about its own acts and their consequences. Mental models can help shape behavior and set an approach to solving problems (similar to a personal algorithm ) and doing tasks.

Metamedia

As coined in the writings of Marshall McLuhan , Metamedia Referred to new relationships entre form and content in the development of new technologies and new media . [1] McLuhan’s concept describes the totalizing effect of media environments. Continue reading “Metamedia”

Library history

Library history is a subdiscipline of science and science . [1] Some see the field as a subset of information history [2] Library history is an academic discipline and shoulds not be confused with icts object of study ( history of libraries ): the discipline is much younger than the libraries it studies. Library history begins in ancient societies through contemporary issues facing libraries today. [3] Topics include recording mediums, cataloging systems, scholars, scribes, library supporters and librarians. [4] Continue reading “Library history”

Scientific literature

Scientific literature including scholarly publications that report the empirical and theoretical work in the natural and social sciences , and within an academic field, often abbreviated as the literature . Academic publishing is the process of contributing the results of one’s research into the literature, which often requires a peer-review process. Original scientific research published for the first time in scientific journals s’intitule the primary literature . Patents and technical reports , For minor research results and engineering and design work (including computer software), can also be considered primary literature. Secondary sources include articles (which summarize the findings of published studies to highlight advances and new lines of research) and books (for large projects or compilations of articles). Tertiary sources could include encyclopedias and similar works intended for broad public consumption. Secondary sources include articles (which summarize the findings of published studies to highlight advances and new lines of research) and books (for large projects or compilations of articles). Tertiary sourcescould include encyclopedias and similar works intended for broad public consumption. Secondary sources include articles (which summarize the findings of published studies to highlight advances and new lines of research) and books (for large projects or compilations of articles). Tertiary sources could include encyclopedias and similar works intended for broad public consumption.

Science Communication

Science communication Generally Refers to public communication presenting science-related topics to non-experts. This often involves professional scientists (called ” outreach ” or ” popularization “), but also evolved into a professional field in its own right. It includes science exhibitions , journalism , policy or media production. Science communication includes communication aussi entre scientists (for instance through scientific journals ), as well as entre scientists and non-scientists (Especially during public controversies over science and in citizen science initiatives.

Human-centered computing

Human-centered computing ( HCC ) studies the design, development, and deployment of mixed-initiative human-computer systems. It is emerged from the convergence of multiple disciplines that are concerned with both the design and computational artifacts. [1] Human-centered computing is closely related to human-computer interaction and information science . Human-centered computing is usually Concerned with systems and practices of technology use while human-computer interaction is more Focused on ergonomics and the usability of computing artifacts and information science is Focused on practices surrounding the collection, handling, Continue reading “Human-centered computing”

Human biocomputer

The term human biocomputer , by John C. Lilly , refers to the “hardware” of the human anatomy . Would this include the brain , internal organs , and other human organ systems Such As cardiovascular , digestive , endocrine , immune , integumentary , lymphatic , muscular , nervous , reproductive , respiratory , skeletal , and urinary systems. The biocomputer has stored program properties, and self-metaprogramming properties, With limits determinable and to be determined. [1] Continue reading “Human biocomputer”
