Rules in Retail

- When a visitor completes the tour, then push goodbye messages and notify on upcoming/partner exhibitions.
Rules in Transportation
- When arriving at car parking, then push a notification on available places.
- When selecting destination and inside a bus station, then display bus data (arrival time, notices).
- When bus nears destination, then push notification on time to arrival and suggest accommodations.
Rules in Geography
- A region X is part of a region Y if and only if all regions that connect to X also connect to Y
- Two regions X and Y are overlapped if and only if there exists a region Z such that Z is part of X and Z is part of Y
Rules in Location-Based Search
- If less than or equal to k POIs of type X (e.g., Restaurants) are found, then zoom in/out on the map to the axis-aligned minimum bounding box of all POIs.
- If more than k POIs of type X are found, then zoom in/out on the map to the axis-aligned minimum bounding box of the k-nearest POIs.
- If the POIs searched for are of type X then suggest to the user subtypes of X (e.g., Italian, Greek) for a subsequent (i.e., refined) search.
Rules in Insurance Regulation
- If an item is perishable and is delivered more than 10 days after the scheduled delivery date, then it may be rejected.
- Each tax schedule must have electronic signatures from two managers.
- If an inspector believes a vehicle is repairable then process the claim as a repair; otherwise process the claim as a total loss.
Rules in Medicine
- If a Type II diabetes patient's current level of HbA1c is high, then the patient's current treatment is ineffective.
- Issue medical alerts to patients (e.g., on a mobile device), based on health trend analysis and personalizable health value limits.
- If patient has low back pain without radicular pain or neurologic findings, then consider urine drug screening and repeat neurologic test.
Rules in Ecosystem Research
- If a plot in a monitoring network satisfies a number of prespecified requirements, such as being a long distance off from any other plot, then it is eligible for statistical analysis.
- If the percentage of a target species on a plot exceeds a certain threshold, then the plot is treated differently in statistical analysis than plots where the target species is less abundant.
- The percentage of a target species on a plot must not vary throughout the analysis.
