From one star to three stars: Upgrading legacy open data using crowdsourcing

Satoshi Oyama, Yukino Baba, Ikki Ohmukai, Hiroaki Dokoshi, Hisashi Kashima
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA)  
This paper describes the first unified framework for converting legacy open data in image format into a machinereadable and reusable format by using crowdsourcing.  ...  Crowd workers are asked not only to extract data from an image of a chart but also to reproduce the chart objects in spreadsheets.  ...  Doing this will improve the ranking of such data from one star in Berners-Lee's scheme to two or three stars.  ...

Metamodeling Approach for Hazard Management Systems

Anca Daniela Ionita, Mariana Mocanu
2017 Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Software Technologies  
The use of the model editor is exemplified on a system for early warning in case of accidental water pollution.  ...  The interdependency between hazards and the need of coordinated response also lead to the necessity to develop multi-hazard solutions, resulting in systems with a high complexity.  ...  Furthermore, MDE was also found useful in case these complex systems are resulted from the integration of several legacy systems (Clavreul, Barais & Jézéquel, 2010) .  ...

Infrastructural insurgency: Constructing situated data at Brazil's urban periphery

Kristine Stiphany
2021 Planext: Next Generation Planning  
Drawing on a comparative case study of intensively upgraded informal settlements in São Paulo, Brazil, findings show that data-based insurgencies have been forged from prior collective action.  ...  This paper focuses on how insurgencies are continually recast in parallel to State-led redevelopment or 'upgrading'.  ...  I also wish to thank Peter M Ward, Kathryn Howell, Thaís Marcussi, and Jason Sowell for their comments on previous versions of this article; and Brianna DeLeon for her research assistantship.  ...

Integrating human and machine intelligence in galaxy morphology classification tasks

Melanie R Beck, Claudia Scarlata, Lucy F Fortson, Chris J Lintott, B D Simmons, Melanie A Galloway, Kyle W Willett, Hugh Dickinson, Karen L Masters, Philip J Marshall, Darryl Wright
2018 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
As the scale of data continues to increase with upcoming surveys, traditional classification methods will struggle to handle the load.  ...  We next combine this with a Random Forest machine learning algorithm that learns on a suite of nonparametric morphology indicators widely used for automated morphologies.  ...  Again, a combination of both approaches will allow us to take full advantage of legacy output from large scale surveys.  ...
