Whereas social scientists and educationalists often make different assumptions about education, common to both groups is to render schooling responsible for the development of citizenship rights. Yet, a comparison of Finnish and Luxembourgian curriculum strategies in relation to building social capital – understood in the context of civic education in VET – has not been explored. Then, this study analyses these aspects during 1960–1970, for the period is regarded as the starting point for democratisation of education after WWII. The justification for the countries is based on their differences. However, both countries also experienced similar pressures to democratise education – especially regarding their VET – which need to be investigated, since little attention has been paid to the question of how the reforms of their former structures were legitimated by civic education. The conclusion addresses the importance of general education for the future of vocational careers. [less ▲]

In the construction industry an increasing number of buildings are designed using semantically rich three-dimensional models. In parallel, additional information is specified in a natural-language document called a building specification. 1 As not all details are present in the model these specifications have to be interpreted whenever costs are estimated or other analyses are performed. In this paper, we argue that building specifications contain cross-cutting concerns. We also argue that domain experts should be given the ability to formulate building specifications using a domain-specific aspect language so that the corresponding details can automatically be integrated into the model. The language needs to support a multitude of domain-specific abstractions that are absent in the building meta-model. Therefore we propose to allow the domain experts to extend the language iteratively by defining interpretation patterns [1]. Such a model enriching specification will improve tasks requiring detailed information and will allow for earlier or even concurrent development of the building specification along with the model. © 2012 ACM.

Granting loans is one of the major concerns of financial institutions due to the risks of default borrowers. Default prediction by the neural networks is a popular technique for credit risk modeling. Neural networks generally offer the accurate predictions that help banks to prevent financial losses and grow their business by approving more creditworthy borrowers. Although neural networks are capable of capturing the complex, non-linear relationships between a large number of features and output, these models act as black boxes. This is a graduation project paper that is focused on loan default risk prediction by multi-layer perceptron neural network and building up explainability to some degree in the trained neural networks through sensitivity analysis. The architecture of a multi-layer perceptron neural network with the best result is used to help the credit-risk manager in explaining why an applicant is a defaulter or non-defaulter. The prediction of a trained multi-layer perceptron neural network is explained by mapping input features and target variables directly using a model-agnostic explanation as well as a modelspecific explanation. Lastly, a comparison is performed between two explanation methods. [less ▲]

VCL is a visual and formal language for abstract specification of software systems. Its novelty lies in its capacity to describe predicates visually. This paper presents work-in-progress on a tool for VCL; the tool version presented here supports the VCL notations of structural and assertion diagrams (a subset of the whole VCL suite), enabling the generation of Z specifications from them.

Objectives: We previously found large variations in general practitioner (GP) hypertension treatment probability in oldest-old (>80 years) between countries. We wanted to explore whether differences in country-specific cardiovascular disease (CVD) burden and life expectancy could explain the differences. Design: This is a survey study using case-vignettes of oldest-old patients with different comorbidities and blood pressure levels. An ecological multilevel model analysis was performed. Setting: GP respondents from European General Practice Research Network (EGPRN) countries, Brazil and New Zeeland. Subjects: This study included 2543 GPs from 29 countries. Main outcome measures: GP treatment probability to start or not start antihypertensive treatment based on responses to case-vignettes; either low (<50% started treatment) or high (!50% started treatment). CVD burden is defined as ratio of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) lost due to ischemic heart disease and/or stroke and total DALYs lost per country; life expectancy at age 60 and prevalence of oldest-old per country. Results: Of 1947 GPs (76%) responding to all vignettes, 787 (40%) scored high treatment probability and 1160 (60%) scored low. GPs in high CVD burden countries had higher odds of treatment probability (OR 3.70; 95% confidence interval (CI) 3.00–4.57); in countries with low life expectancy at 60, CVD was associated with high treatment probability (OR 2.18, 95% CI 1.12–4.25); but not in countries with high life expectancy (OR 1.06, 95% CI 0.56–1.98). Conclusions: GPs’ choice to treat/not treat hypertension in oldest-old was explained by differences in country-specific health characteristics. GPs in countries with high CVD [less ▲]
