Repairing Inconsistent Taxonomies Using MAP Inference and Rules of Thumb

Elie Merhej, Steven Schockaert, Martine De Cock, Marjon Blondeel, Daniele Alfarone, Jesse Davis
2014 Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Web-scale Knowledge Representation Retrieval & Reasoning - Web-KR '14  
In this paper, we present MAP inference as a base method for this approach, and analyze how it can be improved by taking into account dependencies between the extracted facts.  ...  A standard approach to repairing such inconsistencies is to identify a minimally consistent subset of the extracted facts.  ...  EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS We use MAP inference with dependency rules to repair inconsistencies in three taxonomies extracted from Web corpora: an animal taxonomy, a vehicle taxonomy and a plant taxonomy.  ...

Repairing inconsistent answer set programs using rules of thumb: A gene regulatory networks case study

Elie Merhej, Steven Schockaert, Martine De Cock
2017 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
In particular, we evaluate how frequently each given rule of thumb is violated in the sample of repairs, and use the Z-score of this distribution to set the weight of that rule.  ...  We describe the rules of thumb that express available expert knowledge from the biological literature and explain how they can be encoded while repairing inconsistencies.  ...  In Section 4, we define rules of thumb, and give a general description of the method of repairing inconsistencies using rules of thumb.  ...

Towards "On the Go" Matching of Linked Open Data Ontologies

Isabel F. Cruz, Matteo Palmonari, Federico Caimi, Cosmin Stroe
2011 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
The semantic extension is based on the adoption of the S-Match semantic matching tool and on the use of a specifically designed faceted ontology codifying domain specific knowledge.  ...  In this paper we summarize our experience in providing a semantic extension to the geo-catalogue of the Autonomous Province of Trento (PAT) in Italy.  ...  It uses logic-based rules to infer mappings whereas in this paper we determine the overlap between sets of concept descriptors. SCARLET has not been evaluated in the LOD domain.  ...

SeqDeχ: A Sequence Deconvolution Tool for Genome Separation of Endosymbionts From Mixed Sequencing Samples

Alice Chiodi, Francesco Comandatore, Davide Sassera, Giulio Petroni, Claudio Bandi, Matteo Brilli
2019 Frontiers in Genetics  
The results point out the good performances of the presented tool that, in addition to the ease of use and customization potential, make SeqDex a useful tool for rapid identification of endosymbiont sequences  ...  In literature, there are few methods able to deconvolve host-symbiont datasets, and most of them heavily rely on user curation and are therefore time consuming.  ...  As a rule of thumb, we should restrict the counting to sequences that are at least 10 times the number of possible k-mers of a certain length; with 5-mers there are 1,024 possible words, and the minimum  ...

2011 2011 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality - Arts, Media, and Humanities  
In this paper, we analyze and generate design lessons from dozens of HAR games, drawn from academic and commercial AR games, and also our years of experience designing and teaching HAR game design.  ...  We summarize our experience in this new field into a set of design "pre-patterns" as a means of formalizing significant design lessons derived from these existing practices into repeatable principles and  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT We are grateful to Qualcomm for funding this research, and to all the students in the Qualcomm AR Game Studio at Georgia Tech.  ...
