An object-attribute (OA) approach for organizing the computational process and data structures [8, 9] belongs to the dataflow class [6] and underlies the developed methodology because it permits modeling both the parallel processes and any modifications of complex data structures.
There is a high risk that the computational process will point to one of the local minima as the final solution instead of to the global minimum where indeed is the correct one.
The premise of the book is that the design and construction of buildings has long been a computational process.
Central to the force of Hutchins's argument is the claim that navigation is a computational process, for it allows Hutchins to wave his view under the noses of those working within classical cognitive science who hold an individualistic, computational theory of mind.
Therefore, this field concerns the whole computational process.
We have built a new computational process to remove this bottleneck by assuming a world with unconstrained access to computational resources.
Cognitive models can be of two major types: One type consists of (to some extent) detailed computational process models (or Al models), and the other consists of (behavioral) mathematical models.
By explicitly showing the passage of data objects into and out of machines, and by illuminating the data and control paths as machines are run, the computational process is rendered as a visual animation and the program semantics become a great deal more transparent.
Some of the most fundamental, surely, are that thinking is a computational process, that computational processes involve combining symbols, that computation can be made mechanical, and that the mathematics of computation involves combinatorics.
In such a case, a computational process takes place which involves the storage of information on the piece of paper.
An example of a possible wide computational process is the familiar process of multiplication.
