The social media site Flickr allows users to upload their photos , annotate them with tags, submit them to groups, and also to form social networks by adding other users as contacts. Flickr offers multiple ways of browsing or searching it. One option is tag search, which returns all images tagged with a specific keyword. If the keyword is ambiguous, e.g., "(More)
Automatic folksonomy construction from tags has attracted much attention recently. However, inferring hierarchical relations between concepts from tags has a drawback in that it is difficult to distinguish between more popular and more general concepts. Instead of tags we propose to use user-specified relations for learning folksonomy. We explore two(More)
Many social Web sites allow users to annotate the content with descriptive metadata, such as tags, and more recently to organize content hierarchically. These types of structured metadata provide valuable evidence for learning how a community organizes knowledge. For instance, we can aggregate many personal hierarchies into a common taxonomy, also known as(More)
We present principles for an integrated neuroinformatics framework which makes explicit how models are grounded on empirical evidence, explain (or not) existing empirical results and make testable predictions. The new ontological framework makes explicit how models bring together structural, functional, and related empirical observations. We emphasize(More)
Information integration applications, such as mediators or mashups, that require access to information resources currently rely on users manually discovering and integrating them in the application. Manual resource discovery is a slow process, requiring the user to sift through results obtained via keyword-based search. Although search methods have advanced(More)
Information integration systems combine data from multiple heterogeneous Web services to answer complex user queries, provided a user has semantically modeled the service first. To model a service, the user has to specify semantic types of the input and output data it uses and its functionality. As large number of new services come online, it is impractical(More)
Software agents need to combine information from a variety of heterogeneous sources in the course of automating a task, such as planning a trip. In order to be able to use a source, an agent must have a model of it, i.e., understand the semantics of the input and output data it uses, as well as its functionality. Currently, source modeling is done by the(More)
Structured and semi-structured data describing entities, tax-onomies and ontologies appears in many domains. There is a huge interest in integrating structured information from multiple sources; however integrating structured data to infer complex common structures is a difficult task because the integration must aggregate similar structures while avoiding(More)
Up-to-date geospatial information can help crisis management community to coordinate its response. In addition to data that is created and curated by experts, there is an abundance of user-generated, user-curated data on Social Web sites such as Flickr, Delicious, and Google Earth, that can be used to harvest knowledge to solve real-world problems.(More)
