Knowledge Representation and the Semantics of Natural Language

The ebook offers an interdisciplinary method of wisdom illustration and the remedy of semantic phenomena of typical language, that's situated among man made intelligence, computational linguistics, and cognitive psychology. The proposed approach 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 average language processing (NLP).

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

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

Example text

Many organizations run web caches on their firewalls to hide the details of their internal network. External servers see connections coming from only the firewall host. This makes it harder for outsiders to find out the name, address, or type of user machines. Simply hiding internal names and addresses is not really sufficient. A good firewall has additional defense mechanisms in place, but every little bit helps. Proxies may also protect privacy by filtering outgoing requests. As I alluded to earlier, HTTP requests often include personal or user-specific information.

5 Authentication Requests that require authentication are not normally cachable. Only the origin server can determine who is allowed to access its resources. Since a caching proxy doesn't know which users are authorized, it cannot give out unvalidated hits. Origin servers typically use a simple challenge-response scheme to authenticate users. When you first try to access a protected resource, the server returns a message with a 401 (Unauthorized) status code. The response also includes a WWW-Authenticate header, which contains the challenge.

5 Validation I've already discussed cache validation in the context of cache hits versus misses. Upon receiving a request for a cached object, the cache may want to validate the object with the origin server. If the cached object is still valid, the server replies with a short HTTP 304 (Not Modified) message. Otherwise, the entire new object is sent. 1 provides two validation mechanisms: last-modified timestamps and entity tags. 0, timestamps are the only type of validator. 1 provides a new technique, last-modified timestamps remain in widespread use.
