During crisis events, human operators in a crisis centre will beoverloaded with a large amount of information. The stress of dealing with crisis situations can have a significant impact on the certainty of the information. Theneed for a system that is able to handle information calls automatically maythen become apparent. Our research is about a dialogue system that can play asa crisis hotline dispatcher. The dialogue system offers a natural user interactionthrough its ability to start a user-friendly dialogue taking care of the content,context and user’s emotion. It retrieves information about crisis situationsfrom users while controlling the communication flow. The system is able torecognise the emotion loading of the user’s linguistic content. The recogniseruses a database that contains selected keywords on a 2D ‘arousal’ and ‘valence’scale. Its output includes an indication of the urgency of the informationregarding the crisis.
What is an Ion Exchange System and How Does it Work?
Ion exchange (IX) systems are used across a variety of industries for water softening, purification, and separation purposes. While the chemistry of individual ion exchange reactions vary from one application to the next, IX is a treatment process where dissolved ions are replaced by other, more desirable, ions of a similar electrical charge. If you’re wondering whether IX is right for your facility, you might be asking “What is an ion exchange system and how does it work?” The following...
Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration Membrane Filtration Systems: Common Problems and How to Fix Them
Reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) are membrane filtration technologies that are designed to remove solute ions and molecules from a pretreated liquid stream. Well-designed RO/NF units are compact and demand relatively little maintenance, making them an attractive alternative to conventional treatment trains. Even despite the merits of today’s efficient RO/NF technologies, it pays to understand common pitfalls associated with them. If your facility currently uses RO/NF or is considering purchasing...
