Recent advances in information extraction have led to huge knowledge bases (KBs), which capture knowledge in a machine-readable format. Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) can be used to mine logical rules from the KB. These rules can help deduce and add missing knowledge to the KB. While ILP is a mature field, mining logical rules from KBs is different in(More)
Recent advances in information extraction have led to huge knowledge bases (KBs), which capture knowledge in a machine-readable format. Inductive logic programming (ILP) can be used to mine logical rules from these KBs, such as “If two persons are married, then they (usually) live in the same city.” While ILP is a mature field, mining logical rules from KBs(More)
We provide parallel algorithms for large-scale matrix completion on problems with millions of rows, millions of columns, and billions of revealed entries. We focus on in-memory algorithms that run either in a shared-memory environment on a powerful compute node or in a shared-nothing environment on a small cluster of commodity nodes; even very large(More)
We study the problem of efficiently retrieving large entries in the product of two given matrices, which arises in a number of data mining and information retrieval tasks. We focus on the setting where the two input matrices are tall and skinny, i.e., with millions of rows and tens to hundreds of columns. In such settings, the product matrix is large and(More)

I, Christina Teflioudi, hereby confirm that this thesis is my own work and that I have documented all sources used. Abstract Recent progress in information extraction has enabled us to create large semantic knowledge bases with millions of RDF facts extracted from the Web. Nevertheless, the resulting knowledge bases are still incomplete or might contain(More)
