    Epistemic Programming was proposed as a novel program paradigm to program epistemic processes in scientific discovery, and an epistemic programming language and its implementation were also proposed and developed. The paradigm of Epistemic Programming regards conditionals as the subject of computing, takes primary epistemic operations as basic operations of computing, and regards epistemic process...

    The recent cuts being made in IT budgets across the globe can be attributed to any number of modern day crises. For instance, organizations are still recovering from the recession almost 5 years later, and IT infrastructures have been having to deal with reduced budgets and still expected to deliver the service that clients are accustomed to. Addressing the challenges presented in the modern day d... View full abstract»

    Searching for domain-specific related information has gained a high popularity in recent years. Naturally, everyone is not at par with each other when it comes to knowledge about the concepts of a domain. A doctor may be well versed in her field of specialization and probably would search for advanced medical documents on the Internet. But she may look for a much simpler material related to Comput...

    Semantic relation among different objects is one of the most important kinds of semantics which plays the primary role for people and intelligent systems in grasping the situation accurately in the context of connected systems. The semantic relations are viewed as the most important elements in most existing information models (such as ER model, RDF and SLN) during the mapping from the physical wo... View full abstract»

    Faceted search on web pages needs exact facets. However, it is difficult to extract facets exactly from web pages because the web pages are unstructured and lack of facet information. Therefore, facet extraction is a key to faceted search. This paper proposed a method of extracting facets automatically from unstructured web pages to improve the faceted search on web. The Multidimensional Semantic ... View full abstract»

    MapReduce has become the dominant programming model in a cloud-based data processing environment, such as Hadoop. First In First Out (FIFO) is the default job scheduling policy of Hadoop, but it cannot guarantee that the job will be completed by a specific deadline. Research has been focused on developing deadline-based MapReduce schedulers by using the non-preemptive scheduling approach. However,... View full abstract»

    Massive real-world data are network-structured, such as semantic web, social network, relationship between proteins, etc. Modeling a network is an effective way for better understanding the properties of a network, while avoiding the complexity of the full description. This paper proposes a novel hierarchical Bayesian model for relational data, which is an extension of Mixed Membership Stochastic ... View full abstract»

    Over the past few years, an increasing number of organizations have been considering the use of some form of cloud computing for their business purpose. However, the market of cloud resources is still in its infancy due to, among other reasons, the lack of interoperability among existing cloud platforms. In this paper we argue that a successful open cloud market needs a flexible and powerful way t... View full abstract»

    With the exponentially growing volume of digital documents and internet content, it becomes very challenging to locate right information when desired. We heavily rely on search engines but most existing search tools are key-word based and they often return search results with low precision and recall. The emerging semantic tagging technology provides an automatic way to generate semantic tags from... View full abstract»

    With an ever increasing amount of content, we heavily rely on search engine to locate documents. Manual content Tagging can improve search results by allowing search engines to exploit tags generated by content authors. Manual tagging method introduces issues of bias and inconsistency from ad-hoc tagging, and increase burden to the authors. In this paper, we first introduce a semantic tagging engi...

    The Semantic Link Network (SLN) is a loosely coupled semantic data model for managing the network resources. A SLN consists of three components: a set of semantic nodes, a set of semantic links, and a set of reasoning rules. Semantic nodes can be objects of any types. Semantic links reflect the semantic relations among objects. Reasoning rules, which describe the internal relations among semantic ... View full abstract»
