Aspiration based decision support systems : theory, software, and applications( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book contains contributions in the field of aspiration-led Decision Support Systems (DSS). It consists of 3 parts. Part 1 is composed of 15 theoretical papers. It starts with general papers explaining the methodological approach and the theoretical backgrounds of the methodology presented in the book. The other papers are devoted to aspects of linear programming in the context of DSS and of nonlinear model generation and manipulation for DSS and design of decision support systems for nonlinear problems. Part 2 contains six papers related to experiences in developing and using Decision Support Systems for programming development of a selected branch of chemical industry. Part 3 of the book contains short descriptions of the Decision Support Software. The software products comprise four prototype DSS for supporting various classes of decision problems, three multiple objective mathematical programming packages which can be used as components for building dedicated DSS, and an experimental version of a DSS for supporting bargaining and negotiations

User-oriented methodology and techniques of decision analysis and support : proceedings of the International IIASA Workshop, held in Serock, Poland, September 9-13, 1991 by Pologne) International IISA Workshop $(1991 : Serock( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents selected papers from an international workshop devoted tothe theory, techniques and tools of decision analysis and support. Major trends in the development of this field are stressed, such as the tendency to place the final user of a decision support system in the center of attention, or an emerging connection between tools and software environments for modeling and for decision support. The volume is acontinuation of the reports on earlier meetings which were published in the same series
Creative space : models of creative processes for knowledge civilization age by Andrzej Wierzbicki( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many new micro-theories of knowledge and technology creation have emerged in the last decade of the 20th century and in the beginning years of the 21st century from fields outside of philosophy. This book contains an integration of such diverse micro-theories of knowledge creation, needed as the foundation for diverse applications in knowledge management and knowledge engineering"--Page 4 of cover
Model-based decision support methodology with environmental applications( Book )

Creative environments : issues of creativity support for the knowledge civilization age by Andrzej Wierzbicki( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creative Environments is a follow-up on the book Creative Space in the same series and by the same authors, serving this time as editors of a broader book on computational intelligence and knowledge engineering tools for supporting knowledge creation. This book contains four parts. The first part presents a further development of models of knowledge creation presented already in Creative Space, in particular the Triple Helix of normal academic knowledge creation and a new, integrated model of normal academic and organizational knowledge creation, called Nanatsudaki (seven waterfalls) Model. The second part presents computational intelligence tools for knowledge acquisition by machine learning and data mining, for debating, brainstorming, for roadmapping and for integrated support of academic creativity. The third part presents the use of statistics for creativity support, virtual laboratories, gaming and role playing for creativity support, methods of knowledge representation and multiple criteria aggregation, distance and electronic learning. The last part addresses knowledge management and philosophical issues and contains chapters: on management of technology and knowledge management for academic R & D; on knowledge management and creative holism or systems thinking in the knowledge age; on technology and change or the role of technology in knowledge civilisation; on the emergence of complex concepts in science; and the final chapter on summary and conclusions, including a proposal of an integrated episteme of constructive evolutionary objectivism, necessary for the knowledge civilization age
The Future of Work in Information Society : Political-Economic Arguments by Andrzej Wierzbicki( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book investigates the question as to whether technological developments will ultimately mean the end of work and, if so, what the consequences will be. The author addresses this question from the perspective of a technologist well versed in econometrics and game theory, and argues that it is not technology alone that could lead to the end of work, but its utilization by the capitalist system. Technology allows us to minimize the costs of work and increase profits, while the system is worsening unemployment, socio-economic inequality and stratification - which could lead to the end of capitalism in a massive global revolution. As such, the book proposes an evolutionary reform based on a seemingly minor but in fact essential correction of the corporate income tax, which he proposes should decrease in accordance with the percentage of the enterprise's revenues expended to pay employee salaries. In this way, entrepreneurs will be motivated to implement new professions and occupations, as well as new workplaces. Only in this way, the book argues, can reforms be used to prevent the end of work, which would have catastrophic consequences

Technen : elements of recent history of information technologies with epistemological conclusions by Andrzej Wierzbicki( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book expresses the conviction that the art of creating tools - Greek techne - changes its character together with the change of civilization epochs and co-determines such changes. This does not mean that tools typical for a civilization epoch determine it completely, but they change our way of perceiving and interpreting the world. There might have been many such epochs in the history of human civilization (much more than the three waves of agricultural, industrial and information civilization). This is expressed by the title Technen of the book, where n denotes a subsequent civilization epoch. During last fifty years we observed a decomposition of the old episteme (understood as a way of creating and interpreting knowledge characteristic for a given civilization epoch) of modernism, which was an episteme typical for industrial civilization. Today, the world is differently understood by the representatives of three different cultural spheres: of strict and natural sciences; of human and social sciences (especially by their part inclined towards postmodernism) and technical sciences that have a different episteme than even that of strict and natural sciences. Thus, we observe today not two cultures, but three different episteme. The book consists of four parts. First contains basic epistemological observations, second is devoted to selected elements of recent history of information technologies, third contains more detailed epistemological and general discussions, fourth specifies conclusions. The book is written from the cognitive perspective of technical sciences, with a full awareness - and discussion - of its differences from the cognitive perspective of strict sciences or human and social sciences. The main thesis of the book is that informational revolution will probably lead to a formation of a new episteme. The book includes discussions of many issues related to such general perspective, such as what is technology proper; what is intuition from a perspective of technology and of evolutionary naturalism; what are the reasons for and how large are the delays between a fundamental invention and its broad social utilization; what is the fundamental logical error (using paradoxes that are not real, only apparent) of the tradition of sceptical philosophy; what are rational foundations and examples of emergence of order out of chaos; whether civilization development based on two positive feedbacks between science, technology and the market might lead inevitably to a self-destruction of human civilization; etc
