Ontology-Driven Semantic Data Integration In Open Environment, Islam M. Ali 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Ontology-Driven Semantic Data Integration In Open Environment, Islam M. Ali

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Collaborative intelligence in the context of information management can be defined as "A shared intelligence that results from the collaboration between various information systems". In open environments, these collaborating information systems can be heterogeneous, dynamic and loosely-coupled. Information systems in open environment can also possess a certain degree of autonomy. The integration of data residing in various heterogeneous information systems is essential in order to drive the intelligence efficiently and accurately. Because of the heterogeneous, loosely-coupled, and dynamic nature of open environment, the integration between these information systems in the data level is not efficient. Several approaches and models have ...


Querying Recurrent Convoys Over Trajectory Data, Munkh-Erdene YADAMJAV, Zhifeng BAO, Baihua ZHENG, Farhana M. CHOUDHURY, Hanan SAMET 2020 Singapore Management University

Querying Recurrent Convoys Over Trajectory Data, Munkh-Erdene Yadamjav, Zhifeng Bao, Baihua Zheng, Farhana M. Choudhury, Hanan Samet

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Moving objects equipped with location-positioning devices continuously generate a large amount of spatio-temporal trajectory data. An interesting finding over a trajectory stream is a group of objects that are travelling together for a certain period of time. Existing studies on mining co-moving objects do not consider an important correlation between co-moving objects, which is the reoccurrence of the movement pattern. In this study, we define a problem of finding recurrent pattern of co-moving objects from streaming trajectories and propose an efficient solution that enables us to discover recent co-moving object patterns repeated within a given time period. Experimental results on ...


Auditing Database Systems Through Forensic Analysis, James Wagner 2020 DePaul University

Auditing Database Systems Through Forensic Analysis, James Wagner

College of Computing and Digital Media Dissertations

The majority of sensitive and personal data is stored in a number of different Database Management Systems (DBMS). For example, Oracle is frequently used to store corporate data, MySQL serves as the back-end storage for many webstores, and SQLite stores personal data such as SMS messages or browser bookmarks. Consequently, the pervasive use of DBMSes has led to an increase in the rate at which they are exploited in cybercrimes. After a cybercrime occurs, investigators need forensic tools and methods to recreate a timeline of events and determine the extent of the security breach. When a breach involves a compromised ...

Wine Sampler, Lance L. Litten

Computer Engineering

Quality testing is an important part of the wine industry. Without proper quality control, thousands of dollars could be wasted on bottling and recalling hundreds of gallons of wine. Due to this, labs are set up that collect wine samples from the tanks in a wine production plant and test them. A big part of this testing is determining exactly what tanks need to be tested and what tanks are at risk. My project aims to help automate this task by collecting data from the tanks wirelessly and keeping track of simple indicators such as pH and temperature. Automating this ...

Multiplex Memory Network For Collaborative Filtering, Xunqiang JIANG, Binbin HU, Yuan FANG, Chuan SHI 2020 Singapore Management University

Multiplex Memory Network For Collaborative Filtering, Xunqiang Jiang, Binbin Hu, Yuan Fang, Chuan Shi

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Recommender systems play an important role in helping users discover items of interest from a large resource collection in various online services. Although current deep neural network-based collaborative filtering methods have achieved state-of-the-art performance in recommender systems, they still face a few major weaknesses. Most importantly, such deep methods usually focus on the direct interaction between users and items only, without explicitly modeling high-order co-occurrence contexts. Furthermore, they treat the observed data uniformly, without fine-grained differentiation of importance or relevance in the user-item interactions and high-order co-occurrence contexts. Inspired by recent progress in memory networks, we propose a novel multiplex ...

How Data Became Part Of New Orleans’ Dna During The Katrina Recovery, Lamar Gardere, Allison Plyer, Denice Ross

New England Journal of Public Policy

Data intermediaries have a symbiotic relationship with government as the source of most of their information. The open-data movement in government and development of software-as-a-service technologies shaped the data landscape after Katrina. Through relationships and talent transfers with The Data Center, the City of New Orleans went from having its chief technology officer in federal prison and its data systems in shambles to being a nationally recognized leader in open and accountable government. To be effective during disasters, an intermediary should be (1) in place and widely respected before the event, (2) ready to respond immediately after the event and ...

Using Knowledge Bases For Question Answering, Yunshi Lan

Dissertations and Theses Collection (Open Access)

A knowledge base (KB) is a well-structured database, which contains many of entities and their relations. With the fast development of large-scale knowledge bases such as Freebase, DBpedia and YAGO, knowledge bases have become an important resource, which can serve many applications, such as dialogue system, textual entailment, question answering and so on. These applications play significant roles in real-world industry.

In this dissertation, we try to explore the entailment information and more general entity-relation information from the KBs. Recognizing textual entailment (RTE) is a task to infer the entailment relations between sentences. We need to decide whether a hypothesis ...

Feature Agglomeration Networks For Single Stage Face Detection, Jialiang Zhang, Xiongwei Wu, Steven C. H. Hoi, Jianke Zhu

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Recent years have witnessed promising results of exploring deep convolutional neural network for face detection. Despite making remarkable progress, face detection in the wild remains challenging especially when detecting faces at vastly different scales and characteristics. In this paper, we propose a novel simple yet effective framework of “Feature Agglomeration Networks” (FANet) to build a new single-stage face detector, which not only achieves state-of-the-art performance but also runs efficiently. As inspired by Feature Pyramid Networks (FPN) (Lin et al., 2017), the key idea of our framework is to exploit inherent multi-scale features of a single convolutional neural network by aggregating ...
