With the explosion in the amount of semi-structured data users access and store in personal information management systems, there is a need for complex search tools to retrieve often very heterogeneous data in a simple and efficient way. Existing tools usually index text content, allowing for some IR-style ranking on the textual part of the query, but only(More)
The relentless growth in capacity and dropping price of storage are driving an explosion in the amount of information users are collecting and storing in personal information management systems. This explosion of information has led to a critical need for complex search tools to access often very heterogeneous data in a simple and efficient manner. Such(More)
With the explosion in the amount of semi-structured data users access and store, there is a need for complex search tools to retrieve often very heterogeneous data in a simple and efficient way. Existing tools usually index text content, allowing for some IR-style ranking on the textual part of the query, but only consider structure (e.g., file directory)(More)
The amount of personal data that users store and access in personal information systems has grown massively. Simple flexible search tools are a necessity for users to be able to access the data they need. In addition, the file organization that is typical in file systems is not a practical logical view anymore as applications may store information across(More)
User data stored in personal information systems is growing massively. Simultaneously, this data is increasingly distributed across multiple organizational domains such as email, music databases, and photo albums, some of which are structured automatically by applications. Powerful search tools are needed to help users locate data in these expanding yet(More)
This paper presents an extension of BGP4 based on trust model. Specifically, we first establish a trust model appropriate to evaluate ASes' trust degree toward its neighbors in two ways, direct observations and recommendations; Secondly, the trustworthiness of every AS path advertised is estimated iteratively by utilizing the trust degree of ASes; Finally,(More)
