Chapter
Named‐entity recognition (NER), a framework, known as the acquisitive information extraction framework, is proposed as an approach to cover information extraction (IE) tasks. Designing a system for IE tasks requires a group of experts in various domains such as natural language processing, machine learning, software engineering, and data science. T...
Article
A parsimonious convolutional neural network (CNN) for text document classification that replicates the ease of use and high classification performance of linear methods is presented. This new CNN architecture can leverage locally trained latent semantic analysis (LSA) word vectors. The architecture is based on parallel 1D convolutional layers with...
Chapter
While machines can discover semantic relationships in natural written language, they depend on human intervention for the provision of the necessary parameters. Precise and satisfactory document representation is the key to supporting computer models in accessing the underlying meaning in written language. Automated text classification, where the o...
Article
Only humans can understand and comprehend the actual meaning that underlies natural written language, whereas machines can form semantic relationships only after humans have provided the parameters that are necessary to model the meaning. To enable computer models to access the underlying meaning in written language, accurate and sufficient documen...

Purpose Strokes are the most common cause of long-term disability of adults in developed countries. Continuous participation in rehabilitation can alleviate some of the consequences, and support recovery of stroke patients. However, physical rehabilitation requires commitment to tedious exercise routines over lengthy periods of time, which often c...

Introduction Any information which is generated and saved needs to be protected against accidental or intentional losses and manipulations if it is to be used by the intended users in due time. As such, information managers have adopted numerous measures to achieve data security within data storage systems, along with the spread of information tech...
Conference Paper
Despite extensive research efforts in stock market predictions using social media networks, there still exists a lack of credible sources of information in such media. This study presents a novel approach to measure the credibility of Twitter users in a domain of interest, namely the stock market. This study suggests a correlation between each user...
