Methods for efficient mining of frequent patterns have been studied extensively by many researchers. However, the previously proposed methods still encounter some performance bottlenecks when mining databases with different data characteristics, such as dense vs. sparse, long vs. short patterns, memory-based vs. disk-based, etc. In this study, we propose a(More)
Wikipedia, a huge scale Web based encyclopedia, attracts great attention as an invaluable corpus for knowledge extraction because it has various impressive characteristics such as a huge number of articles, live updates, a dense link structure, brief anchor texts and URL identification for concepts. We have already proved that we can use Wikipedia to(More)
In this paper, we propose a TDMA slot assignment protocol to improve the channel utilization, which controls the excessive increase of unassigned slots by changing the frame length dynamically. Our proposed protocol assigns one of the unassigned slots to a node which joins the network. If there is no unassigned slots available, our proposed protocol(More)
Photo sharing is one of the most popular Web services. Photo sharing sites provide functions to add tags and geo-tags to photos to make photo organization easy. Considering that people take photos to record something that attracts them, geo-tagged photos are a rich data source that reflects people's memorable events associated with locations. In this paper,(More)
To improve data accessibility in ad hoc networks, in our previous work we proposed three methods of replicating data items by considering the data access frequencies from mobile nodes to each data item and the network topology. In this paper, we extend our previously proposed methods to consider the correlation among data items. Under these extended(More)
In wearable computing environments, a wearable computer runs various applications using various sensors (wearable sensors). In the area of context awareness, though various systems using accelerometers have been proposed to recognize very minute motions and states, energy consumption was not taken into consideration. We propose a context-aware system that(More)
This paper proposes a multimedia presentation system Harmony which can deal with temporal and active media such as motion video, computer animation, and music sounds. Harmony is based on the notion of a hyperobject which integrates a hypertext system with an object-oriented framework. Each object is considered a node as is usual in hypertext systems, and(More)
The availability of machine readable taxonomy has been demonstrated by various applications such as document classification and information retrieval. One of the main topics of automated taxonomy extraction research is Web mining based statistical NLP and a significant number of researches have been conducted. However, existing works on automatic dictionary(More)
It is difficult for users of mobile devices such as cellular phones equipped with a small screen and a poor input interface to browse Web pages designed for desktop PCs with large displays. Many studies and commercial products have tried to solve this problem. Web pages include images that have various roles such as site menus, line headers for itemization,(More)
