Example text

A standard PSS is a threepart system composed of a set of simulation models (usually AB/CA), a Geo- 22 Juval Portugali graphical Information System (GIS) and a set of 2D, 3D and VR visualization devices. The AB/CA simulation models are assumed to enable the planners to simulate future scenarios representing current trends, and also to envision the impact of various plans and policies; the GIS provides the data base for such scenarios, while the visualization systems provide the means to see the results at a high level of realism.

As Table 2 reveals, there are pronounced differences between the natural and the artificial, but there are also a number of counter examples. In fact, my observations must be taken with a grain of salt.

E. one has to relate words that occur in the same sentence. Thus one has to apply a rather complicated semantic network, which can, however, be established by means of the new efficient computers. The learning phase consists in the establishment of tables. This can be done by programmers or by machines that operate on the frequency of pairwise occurrence of words in sentences, where, however, ultimately meaning is provided by people. The Japanese computer has been developed under the guidance of Ken Ichi Mori and is considered a major achievement nowadays.
