Jonathan P. E. Hodgson
St. Joseph's University
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
 

Dr. Jonathan Hodgson is a Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA, where he teaches a wide variety of courses at both the undergraduate and master's level. Previously, he was on the faculty at Adelphi University and, prior to that, at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Hodgson started his career as a mathematician working in the field of topology. He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge. Dr. Hodgson became involved with computers, originally with the idea of drawing pictures of knots on a Tektronix machine using Plot-90. In the 1980s, he developed an interest in artificial intelligence, particularly problem solving and logic programming, both of which are his areas of major research interest.

Dr. Hodgson has published papers on differential topology, problem solving, and the use of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) tags for flagging semantic content in Web pages. He is currently the convenor of WG17, the ISO/IEC JTC1 working group on Prolog standardization.


     

The challenge of crafting intelligible intelligence
Weld D., Bansal G.  Communications of the ACM 62(6): 70-79, 2019. Type: Article, Reviews: (1 of 2)

This thoughtful review of “intelligible intelligence” work is at the same time a manifesto on the desirability of intelligent systems that have the ability to explain their reasoning, at least to some extent....

 

Virtual machine consolidation using constraint-based multi-objective optimization
Terra-Neves M., Lynce I., Manquinho V.  Journal of Heuristics 25(3): 339-375, 2019. Type: Article

As cloud computing grows, its demands on resources play an ever-increasing role in the economics of machine maintenance. One potential way of addressing this issue is by improving usage. For example, by judiciously placing the tasks requested of i...

 

Fundamentals of error theory: applications in decision making
Guo K., Liu S.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 336 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030027-46-9)

This book reports on error theory work in China. In the context of the book, an error is an outcome that is not in accord with a set of rules that specify the correctness of the system. Normally in a review of a book like this I would structure th...

 

A comparative study on two XML editors (Oxygen and UltraEdit)
Li Y., Chau K., Wei Z., Kang Q.  ICCSP 2019 (Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Cryptography, Security and Privacy, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,  Jan 19-21, 2019) 284-287, 2019. Type: Proceedings

The authors compare two Extensible Markup Language (XML)-aware editors, Oxygen and UltraEdit. The comparison comprises three parts: an unstructured interview and observation, and two hands-on tests. One hands-on test requires reconfiguring the int...

 

Search-based program synthesis
Alur R., Singh R., Fisman D., Solar-Lezama A.  Communications of the ACM 61(12): 84-93, 2018. Type: Article

Program synthesis aims at the automatic generation of “an executable implementation ... from a high-level logical specification of the desired input-to-output behavior.” The review article concentrates on syntax-guided synthesis. This ...
