When Simple is (more than) Good Enough: Effective Semantic Search with (almost) no Semantics [chapter]

Robert Neumayer, Krisztian Balog, Kjetil Nørvåg
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using the query sets of the 2010 and 2011 Semantic Search Challenge, we show that our straightforward approach outperforms all previously reported results, some generated by far more complex systems.  ...  Using keyword queries to find entities has emerged as one of the major search types on the Web.  ...  We use a simple heuristic to identify predicates that hold title values: these end with "name," "label," or "title".  ...

Almost Strong Consistency: "Good Enough" in Distributed Storage Systems [article]

Hengfeng Wei, Yu Huang, Jiannong Cao, Jian Lu
2015 arXiv   pre-print
These are further confirmed by the experimental results, showing that 2-atomicity is "good enough" in distributed storage systems by achieving low latency, bounded staleness, and rare data inconsistencies  ...  For low latency, modern storage systems often settle for weak consistency conditions, which provide little, or even worse, no guarantee for data consistency.  ...  is "good enough" in distributed storage systems.  ...

Osteopathic principles: More harm than good?

David W. Evans
2013 International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine  
As this is virtually impossible and because future knowledge cannot be entirely predicted, it is argued that each principle must be considered a hypothesis that gradually advances closer to the truth as  ...  In contrast, the osteopathic profession has opted for a more fundamental set of guiding principles, which are intended to be true for all health problems, across all people, under all circumstances, for  ...  Although relatively uncommon, 'phantom limb' pain is one such case and no example demolishes the principle of structureefunction interdependence more emphatically than "pain in fresh air". 19 Between  ...

How Good Is Good Enough in Path Analysis of fMRI Data?

Ed Bullmore, Barry Horwitz, Garry Honey, Mick Brammer, Steve Williams, Tonmoy Sharma
2000 NeuroImage  
This paper is concerned with the problem of evaluating goodness-of-fit of a path analytic model to an interregional correlation matrix derived from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data.  ...  on asymptotic distributional results (which may not be valid for fMRI data acquired in less than 10 min), as well as arbitrary specification of residual variances and effective degrees of freedom in each  ...  The question then arises: is the theoretical model good enough?  ...

Prediction, Information Structure, and Good-Enough Language Processing [chapter]

Fernanda Ferreira, Matthew W. Lowder
2016 The psychology of learning and motivation  
The story so far, then, is that given information is processed more quickly and superficially than new information, leading to good-enough effects.  ...  Moreover, this approach tells us a bit more about what is "good-enough" from the perspective of the comprehender: It is enough simply to locate an antecedent for the given information.  ...

Good enough practices in scientific computing

Greg Wilson, Jennifer Bryan, Karen Cranston, Justin Kitzes, Lex Nederbragt, Tracy K. Teal, Francis Ouellette
2017 PLoS Computational Biology  
As a result, data can get lost, analyses can take much longer than necessary, and researchers are limited in how effectively they can work with software and data.  ...  This paper presents a set of good computing practices that every researcher can adopt, regardless of their current level of computational skill.  ...  Both are worth doing but only when the program's performance is actually a bottleneck; in our experience, most users spend more time getting the program right in the first place. • The semantic web.  ...

Good Enough Practices in Scientific Computing [article]

Greg Wilson, Jennifer Bryan, Karen Cranston, Justin Kitzes, Lex Nederbragt, Tracy K. Teal
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Decompose programs into functions (2b) that are no more than one page (about 60 lines) long, do not use global variables (constants are OK), and take no more than half a dozen parameters.  ...  In that situation, advocating unit testing with coverage checking and continuous integration is more likely to scare newcomers off than to aid them.  ...  Modern version control systems also allow repositories to be synchronized with each other, so that no one repository becomes a single point of failure.  ...

The Eclectic's Guide to Psychopathology: "Good Enough" Overviews

Leon Hyer, Steven J. Sohnle
2003 Contemporary Psychology  
The human context is too often overshad- owed. The authors approach this with finesse and usually with good result.  ...  As more re- search is undertaken, the model will become better articulated and its pre- dictive power more definitive.  ...

Shuttling More than Goods: Collective Support among Turkish-Bulgarian Shuttle Traders

Nikolina Stoykova
2016 Claremont-UC Undergraduate Research Conference on the European Union  
Given that the European Union is a free trade, market-oriented economic zone that should, theoretically, eliminate market distortions that fuel the informal economy, why are we seeing continued participation  ...  The older companion I was with, interestingly enough, felt more guilt than I did, though she eventually conceded that Deniz, and the rest of the shuttle traders, had "every right" to do this, "when one  ...  There is no work for them in Bulgaria. I was a good worker at the [textile] factory. There was no need to shuttle trade when Zhivkov was in power-he gave us work. We lived well.  ...

Emotional content of an image attracts attention more than visually salient features in various signal-to-noise ratio conditions

J. Pilarczyk, M. Kuniecki
2014 Journal of Vision  
Semantic regions were fixated more often in emotional images than in neutral ones, if signal-to-noise ratio was high enough to allow participants to comprehend the gist of a scene.  ...  Regions both visually salient and semantically relevant attracted a similar amount of fixation compared to semantic regions alone, or even more in the case of neutral pictures.  ...  Follow up investigation of this interaction with simple effects revealed that in the neutral condition common ROIs attracted more fixations than semantic ROIs ( p ¼ 0.002), while there was no difference  ...

Almost-correct specifications

Sam Blackshear, Shuvendu K. Lahiri
2013 Proceedings of the 34th ACM SIGPLAN conference on Programming language design and implementation - PLDI '13  
Our work is inspired by and generalizes some aspects of semantic inconsistency detection. Our formulation allows us to lift this idea to a general class of warnings.  ...  We formalize almost-correct specifications as the minimal weakening of an angelic specification (over a set of predicates) that precludes any dead code intraprocedurally.  ...  Many false negatives occur because there is no (abstract) inconsistency when the procedures bodies are simple, but buggy (e.g. void Foo(x) { *x = 1;}).  ...

Gritty realism [chapter]

Barry Atkins
2018 More than a game  
There is a limited need to interact with objects and the landscape.  ...  What the player sees is what the protagonist would see. Progression through the game largely involves forward movement through a series of areas within a government research complex.  ...  not finally reducible to a simple classification of 'showing equals good' and 'telling equals bad' , but the most significant effect of a concentration on showing over telling is to move a game-fiction  ...
