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)
Designers of statistical machine translation (SMT) systems have begun to employ tree-structured translation models. Systems involving tree-structured translation models tend to be complex. This article aims to reduce the conceptual complexity of such systems, in order to make them easier to design, implement, debug, use, study, understand, explain, modify,(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 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)
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)
With the explosion in the amount of semistructured data users access and store in personal information management systems, there is a critical need for powerful search tools to retrieve often very heterogeneous data in a simple and efficient way. Existing tools typically support some IR-style ranking on the textual part of the query, but only consider(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 examines the design of unknown input observers from a frequency domain point view and shows that a UIO design can be formulated as a perfect H<sub>2</sub> or H<sub>infin</sub> disturbance rejection problem that many tools in robust control field can be applied. In particular, it is shown that a more general non-perfect disturbance rejection or(More)
A new scheme of incorporating the fault tolerance and disturbance rejection in an existing flight control system is proposed. Method to design a standalone compensator is suggested which is added to the original system in order to guarantee the system stability and performance in the presence of fault or disturbances. Thus the controller, which is designed(More)
