Sentiment Prediction Based on Dempster-Shafer Theory of Evidence

Mohammad Ehsan Basiri, Ahmad Reza Naghsh-Nilchi, Nasser Ghasem-Aghaee
2014 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
In the proposed method, we first detect the polarity of reviews using a machine learning approach and then, consider sentence scores as evidence for the overall review rating.  ...  In order to exploit the fine-grained structural information of textual content, a review may be considered as a collection of sentences, each with its own sentiment orientation and score.  ...  Conflict of Interests The authors declare that there is no conflict of interests regarding the publication of this paper.  ...

Toward tighter integration of web search with a geographic information system

Taro Tezuka, Takeshi Kurashima, Katsumi Tanaka
2006 Proceedings of the 15th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '06  
In this paper, we discuss the directions available for tighter integration of Web search with a GIS, in terms of extraction, knowledge discovery, and presentation.  ...  Integration of Web search with geographic information has recently attracted much attention. There are a number of local Web search systems enabling users to find locationspecific Web content.  ...  Unlike Google's original Web search engine, Google Local is heavily dependent on databases provided by city information sites, such as CitySearch and WCities [41] [42] .  ...

Relational Technologies, Metadata and RDF [chapter]

Yannis Velegrakis
2009 Semantic Web Information Management  
The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a generic, flexible and powerful model which is becoming the de-facto standard for metadata representation on the Web.  ...  Its adoption has created an exponential growth of the amount of available RDF data calling for efficient management solutions.  ...  For instance, the annotation from citySearch in the Restaurants table is repeated in both columns Name c and City c . To avoid the redundancy a variation of the described scheme can be used.  ...
