Natural language analysis to support biomimetic design.
Ivey Chiu Forrest
Written in English
Biomimetic design relies on relevant biological phenomena to serve as a basis for concepts in the engineering domain. Many instances of biomimetic design have resulted from personal observations of biological phenomena. However, a non-biologist"s biology knowledge may be limited. To overcome this limitation, we perform functional keyword searches on existing natural-language knowledge sources. However, differences in domain lexicons present challenges to retrieving relevant information. A meaningful keyword to an engineer may not result in relevant matches within the biology domain.This thesis presents studies that develop a method to systematically bridge these disparate domains. The results suggest that language analysis can be used to facilitate the biomimetic design process by providing the designer with biologically meaningful keywords that may not be intuitively obvious. The ability to find these keywords, and thus related biological phenomena, encourages creativity within the conceptual design process.

Biomimetic design through natural language analysis equally, if not more, suitable for retrieving relevant biological phenomena. From the Cambridge English Corpus Perhaps the greatest . used Watson Natural Language Understanding, Watson Knowledge Studio, and Watson Discovery products to understand the linguistic nuances specific to inflation, employment, and other financially relevant topics to address critical issues that fund managers face in financial markets.
natural language analysis and a method for generating biologically meaningful keywords from engineering keyword terms described in the Functional Basis [10, 11]. Figure 1. Biomimetic design methodology. 3. THE EXPERIMENT An experiment has been set up to explore the usefulness of the biomimetic method for engineering. Assessment of various design methods and tools relevant to biomimetics has shown that these support only one or two steps in the entire biomimetic process. Furthermore, tools can be expected to be helpful in overcoming the challenge of selecting a biological model, and support for the abstraction steps is under-represented [ 4 ].
Many books and courses tackle natural language processing (NLP) problems with toy use cases and well-defined datasets. But if you want to build, iterate, and scale NLP systems in a business setting and tailor them for particular industry verticals, this is your guide. A biomimetic electrochemical eye is presented that has a hemispherical retina made from a high-density array of perovskite nanowires that are sensitive to light, mimicking the photoreceptors of a.

To support biomimetic design, biological analogies are identified by finding instances of functional keywords that describe the engineering problem in biological knowledge in natural-language. A natural-language approach to biomimetic design. This paper summarizes various aspects of identifying and applying biological analogies in engineering design using a natural-language approach.
To avoid the immense as well as potentially biased task of creating a biological database specifically for engineering design, the chosen approach searches biological knowledge in natural-language format, such as books.
Identifying relevant analogies from biology is a significant challenge for both designers who are interested in applying biological analogies for design and researchers who are developing general methods to support biomimetic design.
This chapter discusses how a natural language approach facilitates the identification of biological by: Identifying relevant analogies from biology is a significant challenge for both designers who are interested in applying biological analogies for design and researchers who are developing general methods to support biomimetic design.
This chapter discusses how a natural language approach facilitates the identification of biological analogies. We review methods developed to locate useful biological knowledge in natural language format, for example books. Our approach to biomimetic design takes advantage of the large amount of biological knowledge already available in books, journals, and so forth, by performing keyword Natural language analysis to support biomimetic design.
book on these existing natural-language sources. Because of the ambiguity and imprecision of natural language, challenges inherent to natural language processing were by: To support biomimetic design, biological analogies are identified by finding instances of functional keywords that describe the engineering problem in biological knowledge in natural-language format.
Challenges in using this approach include the identification of keywords, and the quantity and quality of results found. This book provides the readers with a timely guide to the application of biomimetic principles in architecture and engineering design. As a result of a combined effort by two internationally recognized authorities, the biologist Werner Nachtigall and the architect Göran Pohl, the book describes the principles which can be used to compare nature and technology, and at the.
Another approach to support biomimetic design involves searching for instances of functional keywords in natural-language biology knowledge sources, e.g., books, papers, etc.
Matched text excerpts containing keywords are examined for relevant biological phenomena that can be applied to the engineering problem of interest.
Methods and tools have therefore been developed in order to support these kind of approaches. Following the outlined problem-driven biomimetic process, the article seeks to provide a global view of the existing biomimetic toolset.

This foundational text is the first comprehensive introduction to statistical natural language processing (NLP) to appear. The book contains all the theory and algorithms needed for building NLP tools.
It provides broad but rigorous coverage of. Causally related functions describe how one function is enabled by another function, and support the transfer of functional structure from analogies to design solutions.
The causal-relation retrieval method uses patterns of syntactic information that represent causally related functions in individual sentences, and scored F-measures of – Biomimetic engineering takes the principles of biological organisms and copies, mimics or adapts these in the design and development of new materials and technologies.
Biomimetic Technologies reviews the key materials and processes involved in this groundbreaking field, supporting theoretical background by outlining a range of applications. Identifying relevant analogies from biology is a significant challenge in biomimetic design. Our natural- language approach addresses this challenge by developing techniques to search biological information in natural- language format, such as books or papers.
Rather than create an enormous database of biological knowledge to specifically support engineering design, we have chosen to take advantage of the large amount of biological knowledge already in natural-language format, e.g., books, journals, etc.
Relevant biological analogies for any given design problem are found by searching for instances of functional keywords that describe the intended effect of the design solution in a natural-language corpus.
Natural-language approach to biomimetic design Another approach, taken by our research group for more than a decade, is to enable designers to identify analogies from natural-language text containing biological information (Shu, ; Shu, Ueda, Chiu, & Cheong, ).
This approach involves searching such text with keywords.

Natural Language Analysis. Natural language analysis is defined by the Consortium on Cognitive Science instruction as “The use of ability of systems to process sentences in a natural language such as English, rather than in a specialized artificial computer language .Natural language processing can remove much of the administrative overhead in managing the supply chain.
This includes understanding local and global news and events, making it easier for stakeholders to query the supply chain, providing language translation, using adaptive forms and automating customer service.
