Metadata Management: A Requirement for Web Warehousing and Knowledge Management

  title={Metadata Management: A Requirement for Web Warehousing and Knowledge Management},
  author={Gilbert W. Laware},
This chapter introduces the need for the World Wide Web to provide a standard mechanism so individuals can readily obtain data, reports, research and knowledge about any topic posted to it. Individuals have been frustrated by this process since they are not able to access relevant data and current information. Much of the reason for this lies with metadata, the data about the data that are used in support of Web content. These metadata are non-existent, ill-defined, erroneously labeled, or, if… 

Data Warehousing and Mining : Concepts , Methodologies , Tools , and Applications

The aim of the chapter is to propose a comprehensive set of solutions for conceptual modeling according to the DFM and to give the designer a practical guide for applying them in the context of a design methodology.

Categorization of High-Dimensional Knowledge-Based Representations of File Data Using Abstract Self-Organizing Maps

The paper discusses the current and potential impact of metadata, the current paradigm for file organization, Teuvo Kohonen’s traditional SOM algorithm along with my new adaptation of it, and preliminary results which show that the algorithm is in fact effective in these situations.

Knowledge Management in Safety-Critical Systems Analysis

Knowledge management in the design of safety-critical systems addresses the question of how designers can share, capitalize, and reuse knowledge in an effective and reliable way. Knowledge management

Desktop Relational Search or One Way AI could save us from our Files

This work has thought hard about what types of applications this metadata-driven system might allow us to take advantage that the authors cannot today, and it is conceivable that in time this could be expanded with functionality to tag a group of related images together, or to propagate changes to “like” images.

Biological and Information Systems Approaches

The impersonal and generalized models of business activity (and cognitive operations) inherited from social sciences have not proved fertile, but the individual Biological and Information Systems Approaches and personal models of memory and cognition found in biological and related sciences offer some promise in light of recent advances.

Several classes of computational and statistical methods for data mining are available, and the problem is to choose the “best” model from it.

A Successive Decision Tree Approach to Mining Remotely Sensed Image Data

SDT aims at constructing more interpretable decision trees while attempting to improve classification accuracies by using samples in the ill-classified branches of a previous resulting decision tree to construct a successive decision tree.
