    Tagging is one of the most popular services in Web 2.0 and folksonomy is a representation of collaborative tagging. Tag cloud has been the one and only visualization of the folksonomy. The tag cloud, however, provides no information about the relations between tags. In this paper, targeting del.icio.us tag data, we propose a technique, FolksoViz, for automatically deriving semantic relations betwe... View full abstract»

    The process of creating photo realistic 3DCG is divided into modeling and rendering. Now automation of rendering is increasing and advanced method has been progressed. Nevertheless, a current state of modeling is that professional creators should do modeling by hand. Above all, we should point out that automation of modeling is an important problem in 3DCG process of the future. In general, to acq... View full abstract»

    Computer-mediated communication (CMC) has been a `hot' topic in computer-assisted language learning (CALL); however, its effectiveness remains uncertain. This article reviews the nature of CMC, pinpoints strengths and weaknesses of incorporating it into language learning, considers factors that may affect the quality of CMC, and identifies possible direction for future studies. The author argues t... View full abstract»

    A novel classifier-independent feature selection algorithm based on the posterior probability is proposed for imbalanced datasets. First, an imbalanced factor is introduced and computed by Parzen-window estimation. The middle point of Tomek links is chosen as the initial point. Accordingly, this algorithm is iterated to find out the boundary points which have the equality of posterior probability.... View full abstract»
