    This paper describes applications of the optimized pattern discovery framework to text and Web mining. In particular, we introduce a class of simple combinatorial patterns over phrases, called proximity phrase association patterns, and consider the problem of finding the patterns that optimize a given statistical measure within the whole class of patterns in a large collection of unstructured text...

    In Japanese puppet theatre plays, especially those written by the great playwright Chikamatsu Monzaemon (1653-1725), the michiyuki served a transformative function. Characters in the plays, especially domestic tragedies culminating in lovers' suicides, frequently weak and flawed characters who were trapped into a position in which death seemed the only way out, were transformed during the michiyuk...

    Since 1995, we have been researching the application of ubiquitous computing technology to support the automated capture of live university lectures so that students and teachers may later access them. With virtually no additional effort beyond that which lecturers already expend on preparing and delivering a lecture, we are able to create a repository, or digital library, of rich educational expe...

  • Secured Web access

    We discuss various secured Web access schemes using dynamic and static approaches. In a static approach the access environment, that is, the set of authorized users, the mode of access, their access rights, etc., are predefined. This approach is suitable only for a static set up where the user requirements do not change frequently. In the dynamic approach, on the other hand, the authorized user se... View full abstract»

    Global access to information over the World-Wide-Web raises a number of issues that should be dealt with in a thoughtful manner so that participants, in particular the providers of information, will not feel overwhelmed or disenfranchised. These issues include language issues, copyright, and authenticity View full abstract»

  • Accessing a multi-terabyte seismological archive using a metadata portal

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (448 KB)

    Seismological data are voluminous. Typical researchers cannot be expected to be able to search through the quantity of seismograms to find those that might contribute to their research topic. For this reason, metadata, stored in a relational database management system is used to assist seismologists in determining which pieces of the seismological archive may possess the information needed for the...

    The paper proposes a technique for automatically generating Qualified Dublin Core metadata (Weibel, 2000) on a Web server using a Java Servlet. The metadata is structured using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and expressed in eXtensible Markup Language (XML). The descriptions cover ten of the fifteen standard Dublin Core metadata elements and semantic precision is increased by element ref... View full abstract»

  • Electronic copyright issues: a European perspective

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):368 - 372
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (448 KB)

    The copyright field throughout Europe is dynamic, exciting and frustrating. New technology has provided new opportunities for libraries, but has also posed new challenges. Most copyright laws in Europe were developed for the paper-based environment and now have to be re-interpreted to apply to digital material. This has resulted in many people, including legal experts, being uncertain as to what t... View full abstract»

    Research shows that more and more individuals within companies are doing their own desk research, and information providers are making information easier to access. The abundance of information brings opportunities, but also dangers. New types of organisations are coming into being to act as custodians of information, the conventional librarian role is giving way to the role of advisers and inform... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (484 KB)

    The authors discuss association rules which can be discovered from Web data. The association rules are discussed within the scope of our WHOWEDA (warehouse of Web data) project. WHOWEDA is supported by a Web data model and a set of algebraic operators. The Web data model allows a uniform and integrated view of Web data gathered using a user's query graph. A user's query graph describes the query b... View full abstract»

  • View composition for digital libraries

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):426 - 433
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    We propose a novel visual interface for digital libraries, which employs a collection of views and a compositional mechanism of views. While the views capture and visualize specific aspects of digital libraries, their compositions can be utilized to give deeper and richer insights into a set of retrieved data. Two types of compositions-superimposition and neighboring-of views are introduced. Some ... View full abstract»

  • Meme media and Topica architectures for editing, distributing, and managing intellectual assets

    Computers are expanding their target of augmentation from individuals and enterprises to societies. The augmentation of societies requires a new type of media that can carry a wide variety of intellectual resources, replicate themselves, recombine themselves, and be naturally selected by their environment. They may be called “meme media”, since they carry what R. Dawkins (1976) called ... View full abstract»

  • Scenario-based information retrieval in a medical digital library

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):440 - 448
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (700 KB)

    Current large-scale information sources are designed to support general queries and lack the ability to support scenario specific information navigation, gathering and presentation. As a result, users are often unable to obtain desired specific information within a well-defined subject area. Today's information systems do not provide efficient content navigation, incremental appropriate matching, ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel approach for the management of large collections of electronic documents. The major technical contribution of our approach is the seamless integration of features found in systems such as file systems, document repositories, directory services, classification hierarchies, and email folders into a single folder-based system.

    A global network for knowledge manipulation must support effective search, to locate relevant objects, and effective analysis, to correlate related objects. The Interspace is the coming global network, where knowledge manipulation is supported by concept navigation across community spaces. We have produced a working Interspace prototype, an analysis environment supporting semanic indexing on commu... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. We have been developing base technologies that are required to overcome some of the most critical barriers to effective digital libraries. One of these barriers is the heterogeneity of information and services. Another impediment is the lack of powerful filtering mechanisms that let users find truly valuable information. Third, the continuous access to information is restr... View full abstract»

    Spatial data are often stored in a database with the finest level of details. The problem with cartographic generalization of spatial data is concerned with deriving spatial data with proper level of details when the data are used for an application. The generalization process is not simply a process of selecting objects or parts of objects suitable for an application; it should maintain the seman... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a Web warehouse based approach to facilitating efficiency improvement, information sharing and service personalization for the World Wide Web. We overview various functions of a Web warehouse by considering the following applications: (1) a Web warehouse as shared information repository, and (2) a Web warehouse as large-scale intelligent cache.
