    Search is becoming the major means for people to access the information on the Internet. According to a survey, 55% of web users use search engines every day. Web search engines are built with technologies mainly from two areas, namely, large-scale distributed computing and statistical learning. Statistical learning is useful because there are many uncertainties in crawling, indexing, ranking, and... View full abstract»

    With the development of World-Wide Web, storage and utilization of Web data has become a big challenge to data management community. Though many commercial and academic tools emerge, the structure, content, and user behavior of Chinese Web is not fully studied. We are working on building a Chinese Web Infrastructure for support of such research. In this paper, the challenges of building such a sys... View full abstract»

    There is a large and rapidly increasing amount of video data on the Internet and in personal or organizational collections. Fast and accurate video search emerges to be an important issue. The need and main technical challenges for video retrieval are similar to those for the content-based image retrieval (CBIR) problem. Lack of meaningful and comprehensive text annotation means that an approach b... View full abstract»

    Social tagging allows users to assign keywords (tags) to resources facilitating their future access by the tag creator, and possibly by other users. In terms of its support for resource discovery, social tagging has both proponents and critics. The goal of this paper investigates if tags are an effective means for helping users locate useful resources. Adopting techniques from text categorization,... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (788 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a system called QueReSeek that realizes Web navigation by using search queries in a community. Web navigation is realized as follows: when a user browsing some Web content, if the Web content is included in the list of results of past search by people in the community, query strings used in the search are shown to the user. To realize this navigation, the system collects ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (422 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Along with the development of semantic Web, available RDF data are increasing at a fast pace. How to store and query large amount of RDF data becomes an important issue of the semantic Web. In this paper, we first discuss the usage of concise bounded description (CBD). As an improvement, we define dynamic concise bounded description (DCBD) which is a general and dynamic version of CBD. We also pro... View full abstract»

    Grid system has facilitated large scale, flexible, distributed, secure and coordinated resource sharing. It aims to make full use of the network resources and build a harmonious collaborative community. However, resource management and quick resource location are still urgent problems for grid systems, especially under large, dynamic environment. This paper presents SIKA a grid-based overlay netwo... View full abstract»

    Recently, video sharing sites that allow visitors to attach comments to video have attracted a lot of attention. Video also provides a means of communication on social network sites. This kind of communication is expected to become even more popular in the future. One problem is that discussion jumps from one topic to another as users add their viewpoints. Also, conventional video sharing sites sh... View full abstract»

    Certain data repositories provide search functionality for temporally ordered data. News archive search or blog search are examples of search interfaces that allow issuing structured queries composed of arbitrary terms and selected time constraints for performing temporal search. However, extracting aggregated knowledge such as detecting the evolution of objects or their relationships through thes... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we will utilize patterns to query search engine in order to extract a large list of expressions and build their co-occurrence networks from the Web. Those expressions could be statistical terms like birth rates, events such as hurricanes, riots or facts as urbanization. Our method is based on specificities of the language in order to create patterns. Those patterns will help us to e... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we proposes an efficient algorithm for finding reverse k nearest neighbor (RkNN) search. Given a set V of objects and a query object q, a RkNN query returns a subset of V such that each element of the subset has q as its kNN member according to a certain similarity metric. Early methods pre-compute NN of each data objects and find RNN. Recent methods introduce index based on the mut... View full abstract»

    One of the most convenient ways to query XML data is a keyword search because it does not require any knowledge about XML structure and without the need to learn a new user interface. However, keyword search interface is very flexible. It is hard for a system to decide which node is likely to be chosen as a return node and how much information should be included in the result. To address this chal... View full abstract»
