Conditional Dependencies: A Principled Approach to Improving Data Quality [chapter]

Wenfei Fan, Floris Geerts, Xibei Jia
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Real-life date is often dirty and costs billions of pounds to businesses worldwide each year. This paper presents a promising approach to improving data quality.  ...  In contrast to traditional dependencies that were developed for improving the quality of schema, the revised constraints are proposed to improve the quality of data.  ...  ., to identify complex objects that refer to the same realworld entity, when the objects do not have a regular structure.  ...

Dynamic path conditions in dependence graphs

Christian Hammer, Martin Grimme, Jens Krinke
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 ACM SIGPLAN symposium on Partial evaluation and semantics-based program manipulation - PEPM '06  
The approach described here has been implemented for full ANSI-C. It uses the static dependence graph to produce a finegrained variable and dependence trace of an executing program.  ...  We present a new approach combining dynamic slicing with path conditions in dependence graphs enhanced by dynamic information collected in a program trace.  ...  Especially in recently discovered applications of dynamic slicing, like improving software quality and security, such a condition may be able to rule out an undesirable or even illegal influence between  ...

Conditional Spatial Policy Dependence

Eric Neumayer, Thomas Plümper
2012 Comparative Political Studies  
Specifically, comprehensive theories of spatial policy dependence will typically suggest that the jurisdictions receiving spatial stimuli systematically differ in their exposure to such signals as a function  ...  Abstract When the policy choice in one jurisdiction depends on those of other jurisdictions, then policies are said to be spatially dependent.  ...  This form of deliberate learning occurs when government representatives seek to solve a problem, i.e. improve the outcomes in a certain area by trying to find a suitable policy reform (Baturo and Gray  ...

Target and Conditional Sensitivity Analysis with Emphasis on Dependence Measures [article]

Hugo Raguet, Amandine Marrel
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Nonparametric measures of dependence being well-suited to this approach, we also make a review of available methods and of their use for sensitivity analysis, and clarify some of their properties.  ...  We make a brief history of related approaches in the literature, and propose a more general and systematic approach.  ...  The principle is to apply a decreasing function to dependence measures of the group of factors complementary to the one investigated.  ...

Improving the Data Quality of Drug Databases using Conditional Dependencies and Ontologies

Olivier Curé
2012 Journal of Data and Information Quality  
The poor data quality of these databases, e.g. inaccuracy of drug contraindications, can lead to catastrophic consequences on the health condition of patients.  ...  Hence it is important to ensure their quality in terms of data completeness and soundness.  ...  Functional and INclusion Dependencies (henceforth denoted FDs and INDs). For instance, [Fan 2008] highlights an attempt to improve data quality using conditional dependencies.  ...

Using a condition‐dependent approach to maintenance to control costs and performances

Ad Straub
2002 Journal of Facilities Management  
A condition-dependent approach to planned maintenance leads to a decoupling of quality assessment from the determination of maintenance activities.  ...  By adopting a condition-depended approach to maintenance, facility managers can exercise control over the desired maintenance performance levels and costs.  ...  The application of performance-based maintenance contracts implies a condition-dependent approach to maintenance.  ...

Dependence Calibration in Conditional Copulas: A Nonparametric Approach

Elif F. Acar, Radu V. Craiu, Fang Yao
2010 Biometrics  
In many cases, the strength of dependence between two or more random variables varies according to the values of a measured covariate.  ...  In order to estimate the functional relationship between the copula parameter and the covariate, we propose a nonparametric approach based on local likelihood.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the co-editor, the associate editor, and the two referees for their careful review and constructive comments that have helped significantly improve the quality and  ...
