A five-star rating scheme to assess application seamlessness

  journal={Semantic Web},
Visual analytics is a costly endeavor in which analysts must coordinate the execution of incompatible visualization tools to derive coherent presentations from complex information. Distributed environments such as the Web pose additional costs since analysts must also establish logical connections among shared results, decode unfamiliar data formats, and engage with broader sets of tools that support the heterogeneity of different information sources. These ancillary activities are often… 

Semantic lifting of integrated messages (SLIM)

A data archeology and alignment workbench that allows developers to quickly discover and document commonalities among disparate data, and maintains a web of execution provenance that developers can use to trace and probe results in order to assess relevancy and meaningfulness.

Visualization, Interaction and Analysis of Heterogeneous Textbook Resources

This work proposes a Component Metadata Infrastructure (CMDI)-based approach for data rescue and data reuse, where data are retroactively joined into one repository minimizing the implementation effort of future research projects.

High-Level Information Fusion of Cyber-Security Expert Knowledge and Experimental Data

This paper proposes an architecture that leverages probabilistic ontologies to expedite the cyber asset planning process, allowing for the automation of most time-consuming, error-prone, SME-based knowledge elicitation under uncertainty.

A fresh approach for hybrid SQL/NoSQL database design based on data structuredness

The justification of introducing a hybrid database, depending on the criteria of data structuredness in use, was analysed and a new approach for design hybrid SQL/NoSQL database was presented, with its necessary activities.

An Abstractive Summarization Technique with Variable Length Keywords as per Document Diversity

This paper has employed text summarization by TF-IDF with PageRank keywords, sentence score algorithm, and Word2Vec word embedding to provide a stable measure of similarity as compared to existing forms of text summarizing, and proposes a new form of abstractive summarization.



A survey on information visualization: recent advances and challenges

A comprehensive survey and key insights into this fast-rising area of InfoVis are presented, which identifies existing technical challenges and propose directions for future research.

Research directions in data wrangling: Visualizations and transformations for usable and credible data

It is argued that analysts might more effectively wrangle data through new interactive systems that integrate data verification, transformation, and visualization.

Towards interoperable visualization applications over linked data

An overview of types of applications built on Linked Data, a framework for assessing tools used for building those applications, and a vocabulary to describe visual applications developed on top of LOD for more interoperability and components reusability are proposed.

Enterprise Data Analysis and Visualization: An Interview Study

This work characterize the process of industrial data analysis and document how organizational features of an enterprise impact it, and describes recurring pain points, outstanding challenges, and barriers to adoption for visual analytic tools.

Datalift: A platform for Integrating big and linked data

This paper presents a technological framework that allows to go from raw, scattered and heterogeneous data to structured data with a well-defined and agreed upon semantics, interlinked with other dataset for their common objects.

D 3 : Data-Driven Documents

This work shows how representational transparency improves expressiveness and better integrates with developer tools than prior approaches, while offering comparable notational efficiency and retaining powerful declarative components.

Adoption of the Linked Data Best Practices in Different Topical Domains

It is found that the number of linked datasets has approximately doubled between 2011 and 2014, that there is increased agreement on common vocabularies for describing certain types of entities, and that provenance and license metadata is still rarely provided by the data sources.

SPARQL Web-Querying Infrastructure: Ready for Action?

It is found that only one-third of endpoints make descriptive meta-data available, making it difficult to locate or learn about their content and capabilities, and patchy support for established SParQL features like ORDER BY as well as for new SPARQL 1.1 features is found.

A Framework of Interaction Costs in Information Visualization

A framework of interaction costs inspired by Normanpsilas Seven Stages of Action is proposed to facilitate study of interaction-related usability problems and suggests a need to consider decision costs as the gulf of goal formation.

A taxonomy of visualization techniques using the data state reference model

    IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization 2000. INFOVIS 2000. Proceedings
  • 2000
The paper shows that the Data State Model not only helps researchers understand the space of design, but also helps implementers understand how information visualization techniques can be applied more broadly.
