Ubiquitous Access to Digital Cultural Heritage

Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH) - Special Issue on Digital Infrastructure for Cultural Heritage, Part 1, Roberto Scopign, ACM, New York, NY, US, 2017

Journal
The digitization initiatives in the past decades have led to a tremendous increase in digitized objects in the cultural heritagedomain. Although digitally available, these objects are often not easily accessible for interested users because of the distributedallocation of the content in different repositories and the variety in data structure and standards. When users search for culturalcontent, they first need to identify the specific repository and then need to know how to search within this platform (e.g., usageof specific vocabulary). The goal of the EEXCESS project is to design and implement an infrastructure that enables ubiquitousaccess to digital cultural heritage content. Cultural content should be made available in the channels that users habituallyvisit and be tailored to their current context without the need to manually search multiple portals or content repositories. Torealize this goal, open-source software components and services have been developed that can either be used as an integratedinfrastructure or as modular components suitable to be integrated in other products and services. The EEXCESS modules andcomponents comprise (i) Web-based context detection, (ii) information retrieval-based, federated content aggregation, (iii) meta-data definition and mapping, and (iv) a component responsible for privacy preservation. Various applications have been realizedbased on these components that bring cultural content to the user in content consumption and content creation scenarios. Forexample, content consumption is realized by a browser extension generating automatic search queries from the current pagecontext and the focus paragraph and presenting related results aggregated from different data providers. A Google Docs add-onallows retrieval of relevant content aggregated from multiple data providers while collaboratively writing a document. Theserelevant resources then can be included in the current document either as citation, an image, or a link (with preview) withouthaving to leave disrupt the current writing task for an explicit search in various content providers’ portals.

Suggesting visualisations for published data

Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP), 2014 International Conference on, IEEE, 2014

Konferenz
Research papers are published in various digital libraries, which deploy their own meta-models and tech-nologies to manage, query, and analyze scientific facts therein. Commonly they only consider the meta-dataprovided with each article, but not the contents. Hence, reaching into the contents of publications is inherentlya tedious task. On top of that, scientific data within publications are hardcoded in a fixed format (e.g. tables).So, even if one manages to get a glimpse of the data published in digital libraries, it is close to impossibleto carry out any analysis on them other than what was intended by the authors. More effective querying andanalysis methods are required to better understand scientific facts. In this paper, we present the web-basedCODE Visualisation Wizard, which provides visual analysis of scientific facts with emphasis on automatingthe visualisation process, and present an experiment of its application. We also present the entire analyticalprocess and the corresponding tool chain, including components for extraction of scientific data from publica-tions, an easy to use user interface for querying RDF knowledge bases, and a tool for semantic annotation ofscientific data set

Discovery and visual analysis of linked data for humans

International Semantic Web Conference, Springer, Cham, 2014

Konferenz
Linked Data has grown to become one of the largest availableknowledge bases. Unfortunately, this wealth of data remains inaccessi-ble to those without in-depth knowledge of semantic technologies. Wedescribe a toolchain enabling users without semantic technology back-ground to explore and visually analyse Linked Data. We demonstrateits applicability in scenarios involving data from the Linked Open DataCloud, and research data extracted from scientific publications. Our fo-cus is on the Web-based front-end consisting of querying and visuali-sation tools. The performed usability evaluations unveil mainly positiveresults confirming that the Query Wizard simplifies searching, refiningand transforming Linked Data and, in particular, that people using theVisualisation Wizard quickly learn to perform interactive analysis taskson the resulting Linked Data sets. In making Linked Data analysis ef-fectively accessible to the general public, our tool has been integratedin a number of live services where people use it to analyse, discover anddiscuss facts with Linked Data.

Unleashing semantics of research data

Specifying Big Data Benchmarks, Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2014

Buch
Research depends to a large degree on the availability and quality of primary research data, i.e., data generated through experiments and evaluations. While the Web in general and Linked Data in particular provide a platform and the necessary technologies for sharing, managing and utilizing research data, an ecosystem supporting those tasks is still missing. The vision of the CODE project is the establishment of a sophisticated ecosystem for Linked Data. Here, the extraction of knowledge encapsulated in scientific research paper along with its public release as Linked Data serves as the major use case. Further, Visual Analytics approaches empower end users to analyse, integrate and organize data. During these tasks, specific Big Data issues are present.

Linked Data Query Wizard: A Tabular Interface for the Semantic Web

ESWC 2013, LNCS 7882, P. Cimiano et al., Springer, Heidelberg, 2013

Konferenz
Linked Data has become an essential part of the Semantic Web. A lot of Linked Data is already available in the Linked Open Data cloud, which keeps growing due to an influx of new data from research and open government activities. However, it is still quite difficult to access this wealth of semantically enriched data directly without having in-depth knowledge about SPARQL and related semantic technologies. In this paper, we present the Linked Data Query Wizard, a prototype that provides a Linked Data interface for non-expert users, focusing on keyword search as an entry point and a tabular interface providing simple functionality for filtering and exploration.

Analysis of Structural Relationships for Hierarchical Cluster Labeling

Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in information Retrieval, ACM, 2010

Konferenz
Cluster label quality is crucial for browsing topic hierarchies obtained via document clustering. Intuitively, the hierarchical structure should influence the labeling accuracy. However, most labeling algorithms ignore such structural properties and therefore, the impact of hierarchical structures on the labeling accuracy is yet unclear. In our work we integrate hierarchical information, i.e. sibling and parentchild relations, in the cluster labeling process. We adapt standard labeling approaches, namely Maximum Term Frequency, Jensen-Shannon Divergence, χ 2 Test, and Information Gain, to take use of those relationships and evaluate their impact on 4 different datasets, namely the Open Directory Project, Wikipedia, TREC Ohsumed and the CLEF IP European Patent dataset. We show, that hierarchical relationships can be exploited to increase labeling accuracy especially on high-level nodes.

Facet Classification of Blogs: Know-Center at the TREC 2009 Blog Distillation Task

Proceedings of the 18th Text REtrieval Conference, 2010

Konferenz
In this paper, we outline our experiments carried out at the TREC 2009 Blog Distillation Task. Our system is based on a plain text index extracted from the XML feeds of the TREC Blogs08 dataset. This index was used to retrieve candidate blogs for the given topics. The resulting blogs were classified using a Support Vector Machine that was trained on a manually labelled subset of the TREC Blogs08 dataset. Our experiments included three runs on different features: firstly on nouns, secondly on stylometric properties, and thirdly on punctuation statistics. The facet identification based on our approach was successful, although a significant number of candidate blogs were not retrieved at all.

Knowledge Relationship Discovery and Visually Enhanced Access for the Media Domain

Medien-Wissen-Bildung. Explorationen visualisierter und kollaborativer Wissensräume, Innsbruck University Press, 2010

Konferenz
Technological advances and paradigmatic changes in the utilization of the World Wide Web havetransformed the information seeking strategies of media consumers and invalidated traditionalbusiness models of media providers. We discuss relevant aspects of this development and presenta knowledge relationship discovery pipeline to address the requirements of media providers andmedia consumers. We also propose visually enhanced access methods to bridge the gap betweencomplex media services and the information needs of the general public. We conclude that acombination of advanced processing methods and visualizations will enable media providers totake the step from content-centered to service-centered business models and, at the same time,will help media consumers to better satisfy their personal information needs.

KCDC: Word Sense Induction by Using Grammatical Dependencies and Sentence Phrase Structure

Proceedings of SemEval-2, 2010

Konferenz
Word sense induction and discrimination (WSID) identifies the senses of an ambiguous word and assigns instances of this word to one of these senses. We have build a WSID system that exploits syntactic and semantic features based on the results of a natural language parser component. To achieve high robustness and good generalization capabilities, we designed our system to work on a restricted, but grammatically rich set of features. Based on the results of the evaluations our system provides a promising performance and robustness.

A Comparison of Stylometric and Lexical Features for Web Genre Classification and Emotion Classification in Blogs

IEEE Computer Society: 7th International Workshop on Text-based Information Retrieval in Procceedings of 21th International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA 10)., 2010

Konferenz
In the blogosphere, the amount of digital content is expanding and for search engines, new challenges have been imposed. Due to the changing information need, automatic methods are needed to support blog search users to filter information by different facets. In our work, we aim to support blog search with genre and facet information. Since we focus on the news genre, our approach is to classify blogs into news versus rest. Also, we assess the emotionality facet in news related blogs to enable users to identify people’s feelings towards specific events. Our approach is to evaluate the performance of text classifiers with lexical and stylometric features to determine the best performing combination for our tasks. Our experiments on a subset of the TREC Blogs08 dataset reveal that classifiers trained on lexical features perform consistently better than classifiers trained on the best stylometric features.

Cross-Domain Classification: Trade-Off between Complexity and Accuracy

Proceedings of the 4th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST) 2009, 2009

Text classification is one of the core applications in data mining due to the huge amount of not categorized digital data available. Training a text classifier generates a model that reflects the characteristics of the domain. However, if no training data is available, labeled data from a related but different domain might be exploited to perform crossdomain classification. In our work, we aim to accurately classify unlabeled blogs into commonly agreed newspaper categories using labeled data from the news domain. The labeled news and the unlabeled blog corpus are highly dynamic and hourly growing with a topic drift, so a trade-off between accuracy and performance is required. Our approach is to apply a fast novel centroid-based algorithm, the Class-Feature-Centroid Classifier (CFC), to perform efficient cross-domain classification. Experiments showed that this algorithm achieves a comparable accuracy than k-NN and is slightly better than Support Vector Machines (SVM), yet at linear time cost for training and classification. The benefit of this approach is that the linear time complexity enables us to efficiently generate an accurate classifier, reflecting the topic drift, several times per day on a huge dataset.

Blog Credibility Ranking by Exploiting Verified Content

Proceedings of the 3rd Workshop on Information Credibility on the Web at 18th World Wide Web Conference, 2009

Konferenz
People use weblogs to express thoughts, present ideas and share knowledge. However, weblogs can also be misused to influence and manipulate the readers. Therefore the credibility of a blog has to be validated before the available information is used for analysis. The credibility of a blogentry is derived from the content, the credibility of the author or blog itself, respectively, and the external references or trackbacks. In this work we introduce an additional dimension to assess the credibility, namely the quantity structure. For our blog analysis system we derive the credibility therefore from two dimensions. Firstly, the quantity structure of a set of blogs and a reference corpus is compared and secondly, we analyse each separate blog content and examine the similarity with a verified news corpus. From the content similarity values we derive a ranking function. Our evaluation showed that one can sort out incredible blogs by quantity structure without deeper analysis. Besides, the content based ranking function sorts the blogs by credibility with high accuracy. Our blog analysis system is therefore capable of providing credibility levels per blog.
