Towards an Integration System for Artifact-centric Processes

Maroun Abi Assaf
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 on SIGMOD'16 PhD Symposium - SIGMOD'16 PhD  
In this paper, we propose a design for an artifact-centric process integration system, in addition to a graphical artifact modeling notation, and an artifact query language that support the artifact integration  ...  The last few years have seen a growing interest in the artifactcentric process modeling approach across database and business process management communities.  ...  To this end, we define the Artifact Query Language (AQL) which is a high-level query language intended for writing queries at the business logic level.  ...

Processing Ontology Alignments with SPARQL

We propose to solve the data translation problem, i.e. the processing part, using the SPARQL query language.  ...  Hence, we advocate the use of two SPARQL extensions providing these missing features.  ...  The authors are currently working on reconciling their different proposed extensions towards a common prototype.  ...

Web Query Reformulation via Joint Modeling of Latent Topic Dependency and Term Context

Lidong Bing, Wai Lam, Tak-Lam Wong, Shoaib Jameel
2015 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
Meanwhile, the graphical model also captures the term context in the history query by skip-bigram and n-gram language models.  ...  A common procedure for conducting reformulation is to generate some candidate queries first, and then a scoring method is employed to assess these candidates.  ...  In this work, the topic-based interest profile is derived from the history queries of a user. However, as discussed in the paper, some users may not have abundant history queries.  ...

Knowledge Graph and Corpus Driven Segmentation and Answer Inference for Telegraphic Entity-seeking Queries

Mandar Joshi, Uma Sawant, Soumen Chakrabarti
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP)  
Extensive experiments on the ClueWeb corpus and parts of Freebase as our KG, using over a thousand telegraphic queries adapted from TREC, INEX, and Web-Questions, show the efficacy of our approach.  ...  Instead, evidence in favor of candidate e 2 s are aggregated across several segmentations.  ...  Another possibility is to apply the ideas presented here to well-formed questions.  ...

Querying RDF data with text annotated graphs

Lushan Han, Tim Finin, Anupam Joshi, Doreen Cheng
2015 Proceedings of the 27th International Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management - SSDBM '15  
Natural language query systems are a powerful approach, but current techniques are brittle in addressing the ambiguity and complexity of natural language and require expensive labor to supply the extensive  ...  Using the SPARQL query language requires not only mastering its syntax and semantics but also understanding the RDF data model, the ontology used, and URIs for entities of interest.  ...  The most common query language for RDF data is SPARQL, an SQL-like query and update language specified by the W3C.  ...
