Scientific SPARQL: Semantic Web Queries over Scientific Data

Andrej Andrejev, Tore Risch
2012 2012 IEEE 28th International Conference on Data Engineering Workshops  
We define an extended version of the Semantic Web query language SPARQL called Scientific SPARQL, SciSPARQL. It is targeted mainly at scientific computing and laboratory data management.  ...  A back-end relational database provides persistent storage.  ...  We use the Chelonia system [19] as a distributed relational back-end for scalable storage of very large arrays also based on chunking/tiling.  ...

2007 Journal of Empirical Legal Studies  
Specifically, we examine how jurors who responded to summonses for jury duty evaluated portions of videotaped testimony involving probabilities and statistics.  ...  This article describes parts of an unusually realistic experiment on the comprehension of expert testimony on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing in a criminal trial for robbery.  ...  Q: Well, let's explore that a bit further. You used the database of five thousand or so individuals to arrive at this conclusion, didn't you? A: That's right. Q: Is the database a random sample?  ...

Automatic Recognition of Samples in Musical Audio

Jan Van Balen, Joan Serrà
2011 Zenodo  
The assembly of a ground truth database for evaluation was also part of the work and restricted to hip hop songs, the first and most famous genre to be built on samples.  ...  The systems were evaluated using the ground truth database and their performance is discussed in terms of the retrieved items to identify the main challenges for future work.  ...  It is shown that a few matches per second (less then 5% of bit strings) should suffice to identify a 3 second query in a large database.  ...
