Conference Paper
Word embeddings are commonly compared either with human-annotated word similarities or through improvements in natural language processing tasks. We propose a novel principle which compares the information from word embeddings with reality. We implement this principle by comparing the information in the word embeddings with geographical positions o...

Tento příspěvek je zaměřen na relační databáze a představuje náš inovativní přístup k problematice využívání atributů s výčtovým datovým typem (dále označovány jako doménové atributy). Velkým nedostatkem existujících řešení daného problému je např. nezbytný zásah do navrženého schématu databáze při každém požadavku na přidání nového doménového atri...

Tato práce se zabývá výzkumem metod pro hodnocení významnosti vrcholů v rozsáhlých grafových strukturách. Navržené metody jsou aplikovány při vyhodnocení citačních sítí a sítí vytvořených z Linked Data. V úvodu práce jsou popsány cíle, které nás k návrhu nových metod vedly. Následně lze text práce pomyslně rozdělit na dvě části, z nichž první a obs...

In this paper we evaluate citation networks of authors, publications and journals, constructed from the ISI Web of Science database (Computer Science categories). Our aim was to find a method with which to rank authors of scientific papers so that the most important occupy the top positions. We utilized a hand-made list of authors, each of whom hav...

Software development life cycle is the process involved in the design, development and improvement of a software application. Nowadays especially component systems are used due to possibility of implementing reusable independent modules. The individual module, known as a software component, can be implemented in a form of a software package, a web...

This paper explores a possible approach to a research evaluation, by calculating the renown of authors of scientific papers. The evaluation is based on the citation analysis and its results should be close to a human viewpoint. The PageRank algorithm and its modifications were used for the evaluation of various types of citation networks. Our main...

In this article, we would like to present a new approach to classification using Linked Data and PageRank. Our research is focused on classification methods that are enhanced by semantic information. The semantic information can be obtained from ontology or from Linked Data. DBpedia was used as a source of Linked Data in our case. The feature selec...

In this article, we would like to introduce our approach to cluster labeling with Linked Data. Clustering web pages into semantically related groups promises better performance in searching the Web. Nowadays, only special semantic search engines provide clustering of results. Other engines are doubtful as far as the quality of clusters and moreover...

The PageRank formula, originally designed for evaluation of significance of web pages, is also usable for evaluation of significance of authors in citation graphs. None of works on this theme takes in notice influence of citation cycles. We are convinced, they should affect the significance of the authors. We used Kendall and Spearman coefficients...

Project
The main goal of the project is publishing the unique data from queries the Language Consulting Centre of the Czech Language Institute of the ASCR dealt with in a new, user-friendly language query software database. The aim of publishing the data is not only practical help for users solving language problems but also creating a tool that would preserve those data about language as a national attribute that are not preserved in any other lingustic source as these sources have different focus. Language queries are unique in several respects. From sociolingustic point of view their importance is seen in the way the enquirers express their attitudes to language and its development at the background of their language query. The background often reflects the values of the whole society. Formally, counselling deals with completely new language material so it is the only source of advice for new language problems. It also records peripheral matters that will never be explained in dictionaries and grammar books as these are focused on the centre of the language system. In case of language issues that are already explained in linguistic sources the counselling services records aspects that are not explained sufficiently enough or that are explained in an unclear or ambiguous way. For these reasons the database shall become the “national memory” of the language, the memory of the description of the language as well as the chronicle of user attitudes to the language. As the database is designed to be a flexible tool that should work long after the project is finished, a semi-automatic system of processing the queries for recording them into the database will be created. The system will facilitate searching and categorising the queries by language counsellors and database users.
