Knowledge Representation and the Semantics of Natural Language

The ebook offers an interdisciplinary method of wisdom illustration and the remedy of semantic phenomena of common language, that's located among man made intelligence, computational linguistics, and cognitive psychology. The proposed process is predicated on Multilayered prolonged Semantic Networks (MultiNets), which might be used for theoretical investigations into the semantics of usual 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

Internet mining goals to find worthy details and data from internet links, web page contents, and utilization facts. even though net mining makes use of many traditional facts mining options, it's not simply an program of conventional info mining end result of the semi-structured and unstructured nature of the internet facts.

Semantic Models for Multimedia Database Searching and Browsing

Semantic versions for Multimedia Database looking and perusing starts off with the creation of multimedia info functions, the necessity for the advance of the multimedia database administration structures (MDBMSs), and the real concerns and demanding situations of multimedia structures. The temporal kin, the spatial relatives, the spatio-temporal family members, and a number of other semantic types for multimedia details platforms also are brought.

Preface Chapter 32 describes alternative approaches for the development of the decisionsupport database of a data warehouse or data mart. The chapter describes the basic concepts associated with dimensionality modeling and compares this technique with traditional Entity–Relationship (ER) modeling. It also describes and demonstrates a step-by-step methodology for designing a data warehouse using worked examples taken from an extended version of the DreamHome case study. The chapter concludes by describing how to design a data warehouse using the Oracle Warehouse Builder.

5 we can clearly see that there is duplication of both property and client details in the Sales and Contracts Departments. Uncontrolled duplication of data is undesirable for several reasons, including: • Duplication is wasteful. It costs time and money to enter the data more than once. • It takes up additional storage space, again with associated costs. Often, the dupli- cation of data can be avoided by sharing data files. 1 Limitations of file-based systems. 2 Traditional File-Based Systems • Perhaps more importantly, duplication can lead to loss of data integrity; in other words, the data is no longer consistent.

In other words, we should learn from our earlier mistakes. Actually, using the word “mistakes” is derogatory and does not give any cognizance to the work that served a useful purpose for many years. However, we have learned from this work that there are better ways to handle data. • If you wish to convert a file-based system to a database system, understanding how the file system works will be extremely useful, if not essential. 1 File-Based Approach File-based system A collection of application programs that perform services for the end-users, such as the production of reports.
