The emergence of Web 2.0 has brought along the trend of community. It is also the trend that contributes to socialization of the Internet. The essence of Web 2.0 is creation and sharing which give rise to social networking communities such as Blog, Wikipedia and Facebook. Through Wikipedia, Blogs, Facebook and other kinds of social networking websites, interactive relationship and bridge of knowledge sharing have been built up successfully. This paper attempts to propose an effective way to… Expand

Collective Intelligence Based Algorithm for Ranking Book Reviews
Characteristics of the importance of book reviews based on voluntary participation or evaluation of people called as collective intelligence are analyzed, and a ranking algorithm is suggested which adopts ReviewRank for finding book reviews. Expand
Ranking algorithm for book reviews with user tendency and collective intelligence
ReviewRank and ReviewRank+, which are ranking techniques for estimating usefulness of book reviews based on the tendency of users, are proposed and Experimental results show that these approaches outperform both previous general and specific ranking techniques. Expand
On the Use of Formal Methods to Enforce Privacy-Aware Social Networking
This chapter discusses the use of formal techniques and formal verification tools to ensure privacy-aware social networking; hence users of social-networking sites can predict what the consequencesExpand
Consumer Privacy Enforcement in Context-Aware Web Services
A preferences language where end-users can specify their privacy options, namely Consumer Privacy Language, and a seamless enforcement mechanism that considers consumer preferences by intercepting and modifying appropriately Simple Object Access Protocol request and response messages are proposed.

Using Virtual Worlds to Facilitate the Exploration of Ancient Landscapes
L-CAPS is used to tune an algorithm to simulate the movement of large herds of caribou and will then generate optimal paths for these herds through the ancient landscape using various path planning algorithms. Expand
Distributed Multi-Agent Systems for a Collective Construction Task based on Virtual Swarm Intelligence
A virtual swarm intelligence VSI-based algorithm is proposed to coordinate a distributed multi-robot system for a collective construction task and a quorum sensing QS-based model is employed to balance the tradeoff between exploitation and exploration, so that an optimal overall performance can be achieved.

Taguchi-Particle Swarm Optimization for Numerical Optimization
The improvements obtained despite the simplicity of the hybridization process are presented, which show drastic improvements in comparison with the standard PSO algorithm involving continuous and discrete variables on high dimensional benchmark functions. Expand


Searching for experts in the enterprise: combining text and social network analysis
A user study of SmallBlue, a social-context-aware expertise search system that can be used to identify experts, see dynamic profile information and get information about the social distance to the expert, before deciding whether and how to initiate contact. Expand
Can social bookmarking enhance search in the web?
This paper proposes combining the widely used link-based ranking metric with the one derived using social bookmarking data, and shows the prototype system that implements the proposed approach and presents some preliminary results. Expand
How to search a social network
It is found that small world search strategies using a contact’s position in physical space or in an organizational hierarchy relative to the target can effectively be used to locate most individuals, but in the online student network, where the data is incomplete and hierarchical structures are not well defined, local search strategies are less effective.

Finding Communities of Practice from User Profiles Based on Folksonomies
This paper proposes to create user pro- files from the data available in folksonomy systems by letting users specify the most relevant objects in the system by using the tags associated with the specified objects to build the user profile. Expand
Can social bookmarking improve web search?
It is concluded that social bookmarking can provide search data not currently provided by other sources, though it may currently lack the size and distribution of tags necessary to make a significant impact. Expand
Expressing Social Relationships on the Blog through Links and Comments
A study of bloggers’ online and real life relationships in three blog communities: Kuwait Blogs, Dallas/Fort Worth blogs, and United Arab Emirates Blogs finds different characteristics for different kinds of links. Expand
Searching social networks
This paper evaluates the proposed approach empirically for a community of AI scientists (partially derived from bibliographic data), and presents a prototype system that assists users in finding other users in practical social networks. Expand
Discovering shared interests using graph analysis
A different approach is considered, which deduces shared-interest relationships between people based on the history of email communication, using a set of heuristic graph algorithms that are powerful and can threaten privacy. Expand
Utilizing Hyperlink Transitivity to Improve Web Page Clustering
From this new similarity measurement, an effective hierarchical web page clustering algorithm is proposed, and the matrix-based hyperlink analysis methods used in this paper could be applied to other web-based research areas. Expand
Disambiguation of People in Web Search Using a Knowledge Base
A new method that uses Web directories as a knowledge base to find shared contexts in document pairs and uses the measurement of shared contexts to determine similarities between document pairs is proposed. Expand
