different social tagging systems with distinct domains and properties and (iii) detecting potential causes of stabilization and implicit consensus, specifically imitation behavior, shared background knowledge  ...  (ii) Does the semantic stabilization varies across different social tagging systems and ultimately, (iii) what are the factors that can explain semantic stabilization in such systems?  ...  Note that implicit consensus and stability are interdependent in social tagging systems.  ...

Making sense of social media streams through semantics: A survey

Kalina Bontcheva, Dominic Rout
2014 Semantic Web Journal  
This paper defines five key research questions in this new application area, examined through a survey of state-of-the-art approaches for mining semantics from social media streams; user, network, and  ...  Traditional search methods are no longer able to address the more complex information seeking behaviour in media streams, which has evolved towards sense making, learning, investigation, and social search  ...  The authors wish to thank Marta Sabou and Arno Scharl for the discussions on crowdsourcing and its role in semantic technologies research, as well as Diana Maynard for the discussions on opinion mining  ...

Predicting semantic annotations on the real-time web

Elham Khabiri, James Caverlee, Krishna Y. Kamath
2012 Proceedings of the 23rd ACM conference on Hypertext and social media - HT '12  
The explosion of the real-time web has spurred a growing need for new methods to organize, monitor, and distill relevant information from these large-scale social streams.  ...  One especially encouraging development is the self-curation of the real-time web via user-driven linking, in which users annotate their own status updates with lightweight semantic annotations -or hashtags  ...  (like on Reddit, Digg, and NYTimes) and other real-time "social awareness streams" [17] .  ...

Semantic Framework of Internet of Things for Smart Cities: Case Studies

Ningyu Zhang, Huajun Chen, Xi Chen, Jiaoyan Chen
2016 Sensors  
In this paper, we propose a semantic framework that integrates the IoT with machine learning for smart cities.  ...  The proposed framework retrieves and models urban data for certain kinds of IoT applications based on semantic and machine-learning technologies.  ...  Acknowledgments: This work is funded by the NSFC61070156, YB2013120143 of Huawei and Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities.  ...

Sharing concepts and experience through a knowledge base : the benefits that actors of the mud building European community are getting from developing the domain ontology

Christian Bois
2002 Zenodo  
Challenges for the domain include its inscription in time back to the origins of man –large amount of de- veloped practices- and the new interest for a technique fitting well within sustainability, comfort  ...  Challenges are both technical –new tools, articulation with existing systems- and social –ability of very different actors (engineers, architects, masons, etc.) to collaborate for building a common knowledge  ...  The Semantic Web, which is a "super" way of tagging will need people to tag their documents.  ...

Event Mining in Multimedia Streams

Lexing Xie, H. Sundaram, M. Campbell
2008 Proceedings of the IEEE  
We discuss the causes for semantic variability in real-world descriptions, including multilevel event semantics, implicit semantics facets, and the influence of context.  ...  The review includes detection of events and actions in one or more continuous sequences, events in edited video streams, unsupervised event discovery, events in a collection of media objects, and a discussion  ...  Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Government.  ...

Computing the semantic similarity of geographic terms using volunteered lexical definitions

Andrea Ballatore, David C. Wilson, Michela Bertolotto
2013 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
Computing the semantic similarity of these 'volunteered lexical definitions' has a wide range of applications in GIScience, including information retrieval, data mining and information integration.  ...  In VGI, lexical definitions often appear to be inconsistent, circular, noisy and highly idiosyncratic.  ...  The relationship between symbols and concepts is not static and absolute but dynamic and rooted in social agreements among semantic agents.  ...

Matching Recommendation Technologies and Domains [chapter]

Robin Burke, Maryam Ramezani
2010 Recommender Systems Handbook  
Unlike other taxonomies of recommender systems, our approach is centered on the question of knowledge: what knowledge does a recommender system need in order to function, and where does that knowledge  ...  Recommender systems form an extremely diverse body of technologies and approaches.  ...  and Collaboration at the Intelligent User Interfaces conference 2008.  ...

Navigating within news collections using tag-flakes

Luigi Di Caro, K. Selçuk Candan, Maria Luisa Sapino
2011 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
However, instead of using this latent semantic space to simply cluster and index the documents (as commonly done in many existing schemes), TMine analyzes the relationships between tags in this semantic  ...  In this paper, we propose an alternative "contextual-layout" method, tag-flakes, for presenting tags or keywords that are associated with dynamically evolving textual content, like news streams.  ...  Algorithm The TMine algorithm, outlined in Figure 22 , consists of two cycles within the set of the most dominant tags in social media, and provides a construction of a latent semantic hierarchy that  ...

For example, in [18] geo-locations and tag information are used in order to generate representative city maps.  ...  In [19] tags and visual information together with geo-location are used for objects (e.g. monuments) and events extraction.  ...  A more elaborated method [12] refines and enriches tags based on the visual and semantic consistency residing in social sites.  ...

The Role of Tag Suggestions in Folksonomies [article]

Dirk Bollen, Harry Halpin
2009 arXiv   pre-print
The majority of theories and mathematical models of tagging found in the literature assume that the emergence of power laws in tagging systems is mainly driven by the imitation behavior of users when observing  ...  This imitation behavior leads to a feedback loop in which some tags are reinforced and get more popular which is also known as the 'rich get richer' or a preferential attachment model.  ...  show that far from being unstable and chaotic, tagging systems are in fact incredibly stable and stabilize relatively quickly [8] , with users able to reach consensus on a small amount of heavily repeated  ...

Exploring Patterns of Identity Usage in Tweets

Kenneth Joseph, Wei Wei, Kathleen M. Carley
2016 Proceedings of the 25th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '16  
Sociologists have long been interested in the ways that identities, or labels for people, are created, used and applied across various social contexts.  ...  Among other findings, we observe that the identities used by individuals differ in interesting ways based on social context measures derived from census data.  ...  Support was provided, in part, by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) through a MURI N00014081186 on adversarial reasoning and the Office of Naval Research through a on State Stability under the auspices  ...
