Vybrané workshop příspěvky Improving the Accuracy of Entity Identification through Refinement – the goal of entity identification is to correctly identify all the instances of the same entity so as to eliminate the inconsistency of data sources during data integration. Full-text indexing and Information Retrieval in P2P Systems – Distributed IR Reasoning about Taxonomies and Articulations – This work formalizes taxonomies and relationships between them as formulas in logic. This formalization concretizes notions such as consistency and inconsistency of taxonomies and articulations (inter- taxonomic relations) between them, enables the derivation of new articulations based on a given set of taxonomies and articulations and provides a framework for testing assumptions about under-specified taxonomies.

Zajímavé příspěvky z workshopu Annotating images and image objects using a hierarchical Dirichlet process model – We apply this model for predicting labels of objects in images containing multiple objects. During training, the model has access to an un-segmented image and its caption, but not the labels for each object in the image. The trained model is used to predict the label for each region of interest in a segmented image. Mining the Web for Visual Concepts – Relevance feedback on Image + text data retrieved from the web
Zajímavé příspěvky z konference Building Semantic Kernels for Text Classification using Wikipedia – In this paper, we overcome the shortages of the BOW approach by embedding background knowledge derived from Wikipedia into a semantic kernel, which is then used to enrich the representation of documents.
Entity Categorization Over Large Document Collections – In this paper, we significantly improve the accuracy of entity categorization by (i) considering an entitys context across multiple documents containing it, and (ii) exploiting existinglarge lists of related entities (e.g., lists of actors, directors, books).
ArnetMiner: Extraction and Mining of Academic Social Networks Extracting researcher profiles automatically from the Web; 2) Integrating the publication data into the network from existing digital libraries; 3) Modeling the entire academic network; and 4) Providing search services for the academic network. So far, 448,470 researcher profiles have been extracted using a unified tagging approach. We integrate publications from online Web databases and propose a probabilistic framework to deal with the name ambiguity problem. Furthermore, we propose a unified modeling approach to simultaneously model topical aspects of papers, authors, and publication venues. Search services such as expertise search and people association search have been provided based on the modeling results.
Heterogeneous Data Fusion for Alzheimers Disease Study In this paper, we propose to integrate heterogeneous data for AD prediction based on a kernel method. We further extend the kernel framework for selecting features (biomarkers) from heterogeneous data sources Experimental results show that the integration of multiple data sources leads to a coniderable improvement in the prediction accuracy.

Pictor: An Interactive System for Importing Data from a Website demonstration of an interactive wrapper in- duction system, called Pictor, which is able to minimize labeling cost, yet extract data with high accuracy from a website. Our demonstration will introduce two proposed technologies: record- level wrappers and a wrapper-assisted labeling strategy. These approaches allow Pictor to exploit previously generated wrappers, in order to predict similar labels in a partially labeled webpage or a completely new webpage.

Vybrané invited talks The Role of Hierarchies in Exploratory Data Mining – In a broad range of data mining tasks, the fundamental challenge is to efficiently explore a very large space of alternatives. The difficulty is two-fold: first, the size of the space raises computational challenges, and second, it can introduce data sparsity issues even in the presence of very large datasets. In this talk, well consider how the use of hierarchies (e.g., taxonomies, or the OLAP multidimensional model) can help mitigate the problem.
Learning Language from Its Perceptual Context Raymond J. Mooney The training data consists of textual human commentaries on Robocup simulation games. A set of possible alternative meanings for each comment is automatically constructed from game event traces. Our previously developed systems for learning to parse and generate natural language (KRISP and WASP) were augmented to learn from this data and then commentate novel games. The system is evaluated based on its ability to parse sentences into correct meanings and generate accurate descriptions of game events.
Watch, Listen & Learn: Co-training on Captioned Images and Videos leverage the text that often accompanies visual data to learn robust models of scenes and actions from partially labeled collections. Our approach uses co-training.
Co-training semi-supervised learning algorithm that requires two distinct views of the training data First learns a separate classifier for each view using any labeled examples The most confident predictions of each classifier on the unlabeled data are then used to iteratively construct additional labeled training data.
