28 28 Human-based Computation

29 29 Human-based Computation  Social Search wayfinding tools informed by human judgment  CAPTCHA reversed Turing test (Turing test 是由人來詢問系統,這裡 則是由系統來詢問使用者)  Interactive Genetic Algorithm (IGA) a genetic algorithm informed by human judgment. 由人工提供 fitness function 結果  例子:描繪罪犯畫像,系統以 GA 方式產生嫌犯畫像, 目擊者負責評分看那個比較像,不斷重複過程直到接近 罪犯樣子為止

30 30 CAPTCHA Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart  A CAPTCHA is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether the user is human. wikipedia SOURCE:

35 35 How about a game for describing idioms? 罄竹難書如沐春風 高抬貴手不動如山 壞事做太多 罄竹難書 : 壞事做太多 虎頭蛇尾 : 做事沒有毅力 ………

36 36 Folksonomy (Social Tagging)

37 37 Folksonomy (Social Tagging)  Also known as social tagging, collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing  Folksonomy is the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content. Wikipedia

38 38

39 39 Tags: Descriptive words applied by users to links. Tags are searchable My Tags: Words I’ve used to describe links in a way that makes sense to me

40 40 Semantic Web Source: Tim Berners-Lee

41 41 Using Folksonomy to Help Semantic Web  Top-down Semantic Annotation Approach  Define an ontology first  Use the ontology to add semantic markups to web resources.  The semantics is provided by the ontology which is shared among different web agents and applications. Problem  Negotiation  Evolution (hard to maintain)  High Barrier (background) Source: Xian Wu, Lei Zhang, Yong Yu. “ Exploring Social Annotations for the Semantic Web ”

42 42 Using Folksonomy to Help Semantic Web  Bottom-up approach with social tagging  Advantage No common ontology or dictionary are needed Easy to access Sensitive to information drift  Disadvantage Ambiguity Problem: For example, “XP” can refer to either “Extreme Programming” or “Windows XP”. Group Synonymy Problem: two seemingly different annotations may bear the same meaning. Source: Xian Wu, Lei Zhang, Yong Yu. “ Exploring Social Annotations for the Semantic Web ”

43 43 Or Folksonomy is the Solution?  Ontology is Overrated Classification of the web has failed Classification itself is filled with bias and error Tagging is the solution Source:

44 44 Academic Data Analysis

45 45 Academic Data Analysis CiteSeer Google Scholar e-Lib, Lib 2.0 concept adding into application, so search platform provide open API for collecting more data Users participate and interact with data and people Add My Library, Tag Ex. Citeulike, BibSonomyCiteulike BibSonomy Add Comments, Rating, Recommendation Ex. TechlensTechlens Domain Focus Groups Ex. BotanicusBotanicus Windows Live Academic Search PudMed Arxiv Citation index Papers, journal/conference, authors

46 46 An Example  Let’s use an example of TechLen to imagine what research on IR /NLP can do. Authors Readers Papers

47 47 The Terminology Alfred V Aho Entities Alfred AhoAV AhoAho, A. V. References Links Alfred Aho, John Hopcroft, Jeffrey Ullman AV Aho, BW Kernighan, PJ Weinberger Entity Groups G1 (Programming Languages) G2 (Databases) G3 (Algorithms)

48 48 Imagine how we can make use of them Papers Authors Readers Comments Rating Reference Extraction Entity Resolution

49 49 New Research Topics  From those changes, key emerging challenge for “Data Mining” is tackling the problem of dealing with richly structured, finding patterns behind heterogeneous datasets, …, etc.  Several researches focus on those problem like (Social) Network Analysis Link Mining PASCAL Ontology Learning Challenge …

50 50 Society Nodes: individuals (Authors, Readers) Links: social relationship (family/work/friendship/belong to,…etc.) S. Milgram (1967) Social networks: Many individuals with diverse social interactions between them. John Guare Six Degrees of Separation, Science source:

51 51 Communication networks The Earth is developing an electronic nervous system, a network with diverse nodes and links are -computers -routers -satellites -Papers -User IP -Comments -Response -… -phone lines -TV cables -EM waves - Relations between artifacts Communication networks: Many non- identical components with diverse connections between them. source: Artifacts in Techlens

52 52 Link-based Object Ranking  Perhaps the most well known link mining task is that of link-based object ranking (LBR), which is a primary focus of the link analysis community. The objective of LBR is to exploit the link structure of a graph to order or prioritize the set of objects within the graph.  Example PageRank What paper is most important in this area? What journal/conference is most important in this area? What topic is important in this area?

53 53 Link-based Object Classification/ Link- based Classification (LBC)  Predicting the category of an object based on its attributes and its links and attributes of linked objects  Web: Predict the category of a web page, based on words that occur on the page, links between pages, anchor text, html tags, etc.  Citation: Predict the topic of a paper, based on word occurrence, citations, co-citations  Epidemic : Predict disease type based on characteristics of the people; predict person’s age based on ages of people they have been in contact with and disease type

54 54 Group Detection  Cluster the nodes in the graph into groups that share common characteristics. That is, Predicting when a set of entities belong to the same group based on clustering both object attribute values and link structure. Web: identifying communities Citation: identifying research communities

55 55 Entity Resolution  Predicting when two objects are the same, based on their attributes and their links Web: predict when two sites are mirrors of each other Citation: predicting when two citations are referring to the same paper Epidemics: predicting when two disease strains are the same Biology: learning when two names refer to the same protein

56 56 Link Prediction  Predict whether a link exists between two entities, based on attributes and other observed links Web: predict if there will be a link between two pages Citation: predicting if a paper will cite another paper, or predict the venue type of a publication (conference, journal, workshop) based on properties of the paper Epidemics: predicting who a patient’s contacts are ( 在流行病學上需要去找出病源 ( 灶 )/ 傳染源 )

57 57 Other Possible Research Directions  Expert Finding like giving a suggestion of Paper Reviewer, Conference committee member  Ecological Evolution of Some Research Like one topic with different solution in a time period A domain’s topic distribution

58 58 GEO-Info 地理資訊

59 59 GEO-Info Google Earth/Map GIS Limited user, limited usage Open for every one Google Earth Community Google Earth Blog Ogle Earth…. User Participate GML Photo-sharing User Annotation

60 60 Some Research Topics  Until now, a lot of information can be combined into google earth/map by KML.  Hence such information can be integrated by geocoding, some models become very interesting, such as Photo Annotation, Sharing, and Search Live information Planning 3D, Flights Animation Travel experience, comments Transportation information, survival information Climate Change

61 61 Some Information bundled with Google Earth/Map ( 中山公園 ) Integrated with Youtube (video & tags) Photo sharing, (photo & Tags)

62 62 Some Application Integrate more Information on Map Personal Life Information Integration GeoDDupe: A Novel Interface for Interactive Entity Resolution in Geospatial Data

63 63 Photo link with Map Source:

64 64 Image-based Rendering (IBR)  IBR relies on a set of two-dimensional images of a scene to generate a three-dimensional model and then render some novel views of this scene.  Web 2.0 enables sharing of photographs on a truly massive scale

65 65 Microsoft PhotoSynth  From SIFT to PhotoSynth

66 66 Conclusion  Research results can be easily integrated on the Web 2.0 platform  make restricted-domain research more useful for the public (such as image-based rendering) Software agent  Benefit human-based computation  Certain research topics will be easier to tackle, such as personalization in virtual world (more data available)  Data becomes more task oriented (e.g. Wikipedia)  More versatile data networks available
