One of the main problems that emerges in the classic approach to semantics is the difficulty in acquisition and maintenance of ontologies and semantic annotations. On the other hand, the flow of data and documents which are accessible from the Web is continuously fueled by the contribution of millions of users who interact digitally in a collaborative way.(More)
Recent findings show that online reviews, blogs, and discussion forums on chronic diseases and drugs are becoming important supporting resources for patients. Extracting information from these substantial bodies of texts is useful and challenging. We developed a generative probabilistic aspect mining model (PAMM) for identifying the aspects/topics relating(More)
Effective sharing of diverse social media is often inhibited by limitations in their search and discovery mechanisms, which are particularly restrictive for media that do not lend themselves to automatic processing or indexing. Here, we present the structure and mechanism of an adaptive search engine which is designed to overcome such limitations. The basic(More)
We present several interrelated technical and empirical contributions to the problem of emotion-based music recommendation and show how they can be applied in a possible usage scenario. The contributions are (1) a new three-dimensional resonance-arousal-valence model for the representation of emotion expressed in music, together with methods for(More)
In this paper an application of the meta–heuristic Ant Colony Optimization to optimal planning is presented. It is well known that finding out optimal solutions to planning problem is a very hard computational problem. Approximate methods do not guarantee either optimality or completeness, but it has been proved that in many applications they are able to(More)
In this paper a planning framework based on Ant Colony Optimization techniques is presented. It is well known that finding optimal solutions to planning problems is a very hard computational problem. Stochastic methods do not guarantee either optimality or completeness, but it has been proved that in many applications they are able to find very good, often(More)
A model of user behaviour based automated planning is introduced in this work. The behaviour of users of web interactive systems can be described in term of a planning domain encapsulating the timed actions patterns representing the intended user profile. The user behaviour recognition is then posed as a planning problem where the goal is to parse a given(More)
