The chapters of this book provide an excellent overview of current research
and development activities in the area of web information systems.
They supply an in-depth description of different issues in web information
systems areas, including web-based information modeling, migration between
different media types, web information mining, and web information extraction
The field of health informatics is taking center stage in the 21st
century. As the information age evolves into the knowledge age, the
enabling technologies will give us access to the data, information, and
knowledge we need, whatever our discipline or field. Within nursing and
across the healthcare team, we will look to these enablers to strengthen
our ability to act knowledgeably on behalf of — and in concert with —
the patient. Although informatics has already changed the way we
practice our professions, we will continue our journey of transformation
Oracle OpenWorld is the world’s largest information technology event dedicated to helping
enterprises understand how to harness the power of information. The event provides
a platform for Oracle customers, partners, and employees to discover, integrate, and
promote hardware and software tools for business. Oracle solutions assist with database
development, enterprise resource planning, and customer relationship and supply chain
In computing, a hash table (also hash map) is a data structure used to implement an associative array, a structure that can map keys to values. A hash table uses a hash function to compute an index into an array of buckets or slots, from which the correct value can be found.
This paper presents a method for the automatic generation of a table-of-contents. This type of summary could serve as an effective navigation tool for accessing information in long texts, such as books. To generate a coherent table-of-contents, we need to capture both global dependencies across different titles in the table and local constraints within sections. Our algorithm effectively handles these complex dependencies by factoring the model into local and global components, and incrementally constructing the model’s output. ...
In the first category, new terms are created by adding modifiers to existing terms. For example “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” was created by adding modifier “insulin-dependent” to its hypernym “diabetes mellitus” as in Table 1. In English, the specific level terms are very commonly compounds of the generic level term and some modifier (Croft, 2004).
Many real-world texts contain tables. In order to process these texts correctly and extract the information contained within the tables, it is important to identify the presence and structure of tables. In this paper, we present a new approach that learns to recognize tables in free text, including the boundary, rows and columns of tables. When tested on Wall Street Journal news documents, our learning approach outperforms a deterministic table recognition algorithm that identifies tables based on a fixed set of conditions. ...
In this chapter, the learning objectives are: Integrate separate REA diagrams for individual business cycles into a single, comprehensive organization-wide REA diagram; build a set of tables to implement an REA model of an AIS in a relational database; explain how to write queries to retrieve information from an AIS relational database built according to the REA data model.
Module D (Office 2010 Version) - Decision analysis with spreadsheet software. This chapter define a list and a list definition table within the context of spreadsheet software and describe the importance of each, compare and contrast the Filter function and Custom Filter function in spreadsheet software, describe the purpose of using conditional formatting, define a pivot table and describe how you can use it to view summarized information by dimension, describe the purpose of using Goal Seek.
In this work, the problem of extracting phrase translation is formulated as an information retrieval process implemented with a log-linear model aiming for a balanced precision and recall. We present a generic phrase training algorithm which is parameterized with feature functions and can be optimized jointly with the translation engine to directly maximize the end-to-end system performance. Multiple data-driven feature functions are proposed to capture the quality and conﬁdence of phrases and phrase pairs.
At present, adapting an Information Extraction system to new topics is an expensive and slow process, requiring some knowledge engineering for each new topic. We propose a new paradigm of Information Extraction which operates 'on demand' in response to a user's query. On-demand Information Extraction (ODIE) aims to completely eliminate the customization effort. Given a user’s query, the system will automatically create patterns to extract salient relations in the text of the topic, and build tables from the extracted information using paraphrase discovery technology. ...
In this paper, we will describe ODIE, the On-Demand Information Extraction system. Given a user’s query, the system will produce tables of the salient information about the topic in structured form. It produces the tables in less than one minute without any knowledge engineering by hand, i.e. pattern creation or paraphrase knowledge creation, which was the largest obstacle in traditional IE. This demonstration is based on the idea and technologies reported in (Sekine 06).
Chapter 4 - Relational databases. This chapter explain the difference between database and file-based legacy systems, describe what a relational database is and how it organizes data, explain the difference between logical and physical views of a database, create a set of well-structured tables to properly store data in a relational database.
Chapter 5 - Data modeling and database design. Learning objectives: Discuss the steps for designing and implementing a database system; use the REA data model to design an AIS database; draw an Entity-Relationship (E-R) diagram of an AIS database; build a set of tables to implement an REA model of an AIS in a relational database; read an E-R diagram and explain what it reveals about the business activities and policies of the organization being modeled.
