Humanist Computing: Modelling with Words, Concepts, and Behaviours

  • Jonathan Rossiter


In this paper we present a new approach to the modelling of data and knowledge called Humanist Computing. We describe how the general principle of Humanist Computing, namely the modelling with words, concepts and behaviours defines a hierarchy of methods which extends from the low level data-driven modelling with words to the high level fusion of knowledge in the context of human behaviours. We explore this hierarchy and focus on a number of levels in the hierarchy. For each level we describe the general Humanist Computing approach and give specific examples based either on approximations to the real-world or the real-world itself.
