  • Social Networking Portals: An Overview and Evaluation 

    O'Murchu, Ina; Breslin, John; Decker, Stefan (2004)
    Next generation communication on the Internet changes the way we interact with the complexity of the information load on the World Wide Web. Web portals act as gateways to resources and a multitude of services on the ...
  • Social Networks and Data Portability using Semantic Web technologies 

    Bojars, Uldis; Breslin, John; Decker, Stefan (2008)
    Social network and data portability has recently gained a lot of interest as one of the issues for social media sites on the Web. In this paper, we will show how Semantic Web technologies and especially the FOAF and ...
  • Social sentiment indices powered by X-scores 

    Davis, Brian; McDermott, Ross (2nd International Conference on Big Data, Small Data, Linked Data and Open Data (ALLDATA ), 2016-02-21)
    Abstract—Social Sentiment Indices powered by X-Scores (SSIX) seeks to address the challenge of extracting relevant and valuable economic signals in a cross-lingual fashion from the vast variety of and increasingly influential ...
  • SPARQL++ for mapping between RDF vocabularies 

    Polleres, Axel (Springer, 2007)
    Lightweight ontologies in the formof RDF vocabularies such as SIOC, FOAF, vCard, etc. are increasingly being used and exported by ¿serious¿ applications recently. Such vocabularies, together with query languages like SPARQL ...
  • A Speech Based Approach to Surveillance Video Retrieval 

    QasemiZadeh, Behrang; O'Neill, Ian; Shen, Jiali; Miller, Paul; Hanna, Philip; Stwart, Darryl; Wang, Hongbin (2009)
    This paper describes the anatomy of a pilot surveillance system with a speech-based interface for content-based retrieval of video data. The proposed system relies on an ontology-based information sharing architecture and ...
  • Stream Data Gathering in Wireless Sensor Networks Within Expected Lifetime 

    Shu, Lei; Zhou, ZhangBing; Aguilar, Antonio; Hauswirth, Manfred (2007)
  • SVM: Semantic Versioning Manager 

    Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (2006)
    Knowledge domains and their semantic representations via ontologies are typically subject to change in practical applications. There- fore, especially in distributed environments, change management for ontologies becomes ...
  • SWSE: Answers Before Links! 

    Harth, Andreas; Hogan, Aidan; Delbru, Renaud; Umbrich, Jürgen; O'Riain, Sean; Decker, Stefan (CEUR-WS.org, 2007)
    We present a system that improves on current document- centric Web search engine technology; adopting an entity-centric perspective, we are able to integrate data from both static and live sources into a coherent, interlinked ...
  • SWSE: Objects before documents! 

    Harth, Andreas; Hogan, Aidan; Umbrich, Jürgen; Decker, Stefan (2008)
    Web search engines are immensely useful for locating documents online. However, with more and more structured data being published online, the restriction to the hyperdocument model impairs the usefulness for searching and ...
  • Targeting online communities to maximise information diffusion 

    Belák, Václav; Lam, Samantha; Hayes, Conor (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-04)
    In recent years, many companies have started to utilise online social communities as a means of communicating with and targeting their employees and customers. Such online communities include discussion fora which are ...
  • Towards a Practical Emergent Knowledge Exploitation 

    Novacek, Vit (AAAI Press, 2009)
  • Towards a reference architecture for Semantic Web applications 

    Heitmann, Benjamin; Hayes, Conor; Oren, Eyal (2009)
    The Semantic Web currently has two complementary architectural approaches: ¿Bottom-up¿ emergent best practices by the community and ¿top-down¿ prescriptive standards by standards bodies, leaving a gap regarding the concrete ...
  • Towards a social provenance model for the Web 

    Harth, Andreas; Polleres, Axel; Decker, Stefan (2007)
    In this position paper we firstly present the established notion of provenance on the Semantic Web (also referred to as named graphs or contexts), and secondly argue for the benefit of adding to the pure technical notion ...
  • Towards Constraint-Based Composition With Incomplete Service Descriptions 

    Moran, Matthew; Vitvar, Tomas; Zaremba, Maciej (IEEE, 2007)
    We apply our work on Web service discovery with initially incomplete information to the problem of service com- position. Rich semantic descriptions of Goals and Web ser- vices allow the unambiguous specification of ...
  • Towards Cross-Community Effects in Scientific Communities 

    Karnstedt, Marcel; Hayes, Conor (2009)
    Community effects on the behaviour of individuals, the community itself and other communities can be observed in a wide range of applications. This is true in scientific research, where communities of researchers have ...
  • Towards Dataset Dynamics: Change Frequency of Linked Open Data Sources 

    Umbrich, Jürgen; Hausenblas, Michael; Hogan, Aidan; Polleres, Axel; Decker, Stefan (CEUR, 2010)
    Datasets in the LOD cloud are far from being static in their nature and how they are exposed. As resources are added and new links are set, applications consuming the data should be able to deal with these changes. In ...
  • Towards European Patient Summaries based on Triple Space Computing 

    Foxvog, Doug (2006)
    Medical practice today still entails sorting through scattered information on a specific patient. Making things more difficult, the EU, in bringing its member states closer together, is encouraging people¿s mobility, and ...
  • Towards Fine-grained Service Matchmaking by Using Concept Similarity 

    Polleres, Axel (2007)
    Several description frameworks to semantically describe and match services on the one hand and service requests on the other have been presented in the literature. Many of the current proposals for defining notions of ...
  • Towards Intelligent web Services: Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO) 

    Polleres, Axel; Fensel, Dieter (Springer, 2005)
    The SemanticWeb and the SemanticWeb Services build a natural application area for Intelligent Agents, namely querying and reasoning about structured knowledge and semantic descriptions of services and their interfaces on ...
  • Towards Lightweight and Robust Large Scale Emergent Knowledge Processing 

    Novacek, Vit; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2009)
    We present a lightweight framework for processing uncertain emergent knowledge that comes from multiple resources with varying relevance. The framework is essentially RDF-compatible, but allows also for direct representation ...
