Knowledge Representation and the Semantics of Natural Language

The publication provides an interdisciplinary method of wisdom illustration and the therapy of semantic phenomena of usual language, that's situated among synthetic intelligence, computational linguistics, and cognitive psychology. The proposed technique relies on Multilayered prolonged Semantic Networks (MultiNets), which are used for theoretical investigations into the semantics of normal language, for cognitive modeling, for describing lexical entries in a computational lexicon, and for normal language processing (NLP).

Web data mining: Exploring hyperlinks, contents, and usage data

Net mining goals to find valuable details and information from net links, web page contents, and utilization info. even though internet mining makes use of many traditional info mining innovations, it isn't basically an software of conventional facts mining as a result semi-structured and unstructured nature of the internet facts.

Semantic types for Multimedia Database looking and perusing starts with the advent of multimedia details purposes, the necessity for the advance of the multimedia database administration platforms (MDBMSs), and the $64000 matters and demanding situations of multimedia structures. The temporal kin, the spatial family, the spatio-temporal family, and a number of other semantic versions for multimedia info platforms also are brought.

Enterprise Content Management in Information Systems Research: Foundations, Methods and Cases

Sample text

The degree of a relationship is the number of associated entities: two (binary), three (ternary), or any n (n-ary). The role (name), or relationship name, defines the function of an entity in a relationship. The concept of existence in a relationship determines whether an entity instance must exist (mandatory) or not (optional). So, for example, the minimum connectivity of a binary relationship—that is, the number of entity instances on one side that are associated with one instance on the other side—can either be zero, if optional, or one, if mandatory.

For example, Sedan is a type of car. The Car class is more general than the Sedan class. Generalization is indicated by a solid line adorned with a hollow arrowhead pointing to the more general class. 1 shows generalization from the Sedan class to the Car class. Class Diagrams for Database Design The reader may be interested in the similarities and differences between UML class diagrams and ER models. 5 are parallel to some of the figures in Chapter 2, allowing for easy comparisons. 6. 10. 2 illustrates UML constructs for relationships with various degrees of association and multiplicities.

Specialization, the reverse of generalization, is an inversion of the same concept; it indicates that subtypes specialize the supertype. A supertype entity in one relationship may be a subtype entity in another relationship. When a structure comprises a combination of supertype/subtype relationships, that structure is called a supertype/subtype hierarchy, or generalization hierarchy. Generalization can also be described in terms of inheritance, which specifies that all the attributes of a supertype are propagated down the hierarchy to entities of a lower type.
