People tend to have various opinions about topics. In discussions, they can either agree or disagree with another person. The recognition of agreement and disagreement is a useful prerequisite for many applications. It could be used by political scientists to measure how controversial political issues are, or help a company to analyze how well people like(More)
The giant radio galaxy M 87 with its proximity (16 Mpc), famous jet, and very massive black hole ((3 − 6) × 10 9 M) provides a unique opportunity to investigate the origin of very high energy (VHE; E>100 GeV) γ-ray emission generated in relativistic outflows and the surroundings of super-massive black holes. M 87 has been established as a VHE γ-ray emitter(More)
When querying data providers on the web, one has no guarantee that they will reply within a given time. Some providers may even not answer at all. This makes it infeasible to wait for a complete result before beginning with the entity resolution. In order to solve this problem , we present a query-time entity resolution approach that takes the asynchronous(More)
An annihilation signal of dark matter is searched for from the central region of the Milky Way. Data acquired in dedicated on-off observations of the Galactic center region with H.E.S.S. are analyzed for this purpose. No significant signal is found in a total of ∼9  h of on-off observations. Upper limits on the velocity averaged cross section, ⟨σv⟩, for the(More)
We present an approach and mobile application for the interactive exploration and search of geo-located social media entities from different, distributed data providers on the web. When querying the providers, the returned results typically have some overlap. In addition, one has no guarantee that the providers reply within a given time interval. Thus, in(More)
Commercial apps for nearby search on mobile phones such as Qype, AroundMe, Foursquare, or Wikitude have gained huge popularity among smartphone users. Understanding the way how people use and interact with such applications is fundamental for improving the functionality and the user interface design. In our two-step field study, we developed and evaluated(More)
