Towards human consistent data driven decision support systems using verbalization of data mining results via linguistic data summaries

J. Kacprzyk, S. Zadrożny
2010 Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Technical Sciences  
Second, following Kacprzyk and Zadrożny [2] it is further considered how linguistic data summarization is closely related to some types of solutions used in natural language generation (NLG), which can  ...  The use of linguistic summaries provides tools for the verbalization of data analysis (mining) results which, in addition to the more commonly used visualization e.g. via a GUI, graphical user interface  ...  Moreover, through natural language we attain an ultimate scalability as natural language can express in a comprehensive way information no matter how large the data set is; cf.  ...

An intelligent approach to handling imperfect information in concept-based natural language queries

Vesper Owei
2002 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
In this article, we have done just that for a concept-based natural language query system that we developed. A methodology for handling and resolving each type of imperfection is developed.  ...  The approaches are specifically applied to the Conceptual Query Language with Natural Language (CQL/NL) that is presented in Owei [2000].  ...  of the query itself, thus in the concept-based natural language expression of the query.  ...

Reasoning About Temporal Context Using Ontology and Abductive Constraint Logic Programming [chapter]

Hongwei Zhu, Stuart E. Madnick, Michael D. Siegel
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We represent temporal context as a multi-valued method in F-Logic; however, only one value is valid at any point in time, the determination of which is constrained by temporal relations.  ...  As an extension to the Context Interchange (COIN) framework, this paper introduces the notion of temporal context as a formalization of the problem.  ...  Acknowledgements The work reported herein was supported, in part, by the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) and the Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST)-MIT collaboration.  ...

Making database systems usable

H. V. Jagadish, Adriane Chapman, Aaron Elkiss, Magesh Jayapandian, Yunyao Li, Arnab Nandi, Cong Yu
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '07  
Database researchers have striven to improve the capability of a database in terms of both performance and functionality. We assert that the usability of a database is as important as its capability.  ...  In this paper, we study why database systems today are so difficult to use. We identify a set of five pain points and propose a research agenda to address these.  ...  Some of the earliest works in database usability includes [87] , which analyzed the expressive power of a declarative query language (SEQUEL) in comparison to natural language.  ...
