Knowledge Discovery Resources 2012 – An Internet MiniGuide Annotated Link Compilation

This Internet MiniGuide Annotated Link Compilation is dedicated to the latest and most competent resources for knowledge discovery available over the Internet. With the constant addition of new and pertinent information coming online every second it is very easy to go into information overload. The true key is to be able to find the important knowledge discovery resources and sites both in the visible and invisible World Wide Web. The following selected knowledge discovery resources and sites offer excellent knowledge and information discovery sources to help you accomplish your research goals. Also visit the very latest resources on Knowledge Discovery at the following Subject Tracer(TM) Information Blog.

ACM SIGKDD: Current Explorations Issue Explorations is published twice yearly, in June/July and in December/January each year. The newsletter is distributed in hardcopy form to all members of the ACM SIGKDD. It is also sent to ACM’s network of libraries. Online versions are available on the web free to the general public. Their goal is to make the SIGKDD Newsletter an informative, rapid means of publication and dynamic forum for communication with the Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining community.

APECKS: a Tool to Support Living Ontologies Ontology servers are currently under-developed in terms of the support they provide for collaborative activities on their content. This paper presents the APECKS (Adaptive Presentation Environment for Collaborative Knowledge Structuring) system, an ontology server which supports collaboration by allowing individuals to create personal ontologies. These ontologies can be compared with others’ to prompt discussion about the sources of their differences and similarities.

BAYESIA: Bayesian Networks and Data Mining Tool The Bayesian Network approach merges and supersedes existing approaches coming from Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining, both symbolic and statistical ones. Bayesian Networks are rigorously justified, provide a distributed knowledge representation, and are as understandable as a rule base. They deal particularly well with uncertainty, and they can be manually generated by consultation of an expert, or inductively built by machine learning.

Bibliomining Information Center Data Mining for Libraries The basic definition is “data mining for libraries.” For years, bibliometrics has been used to track patterns in authorship, citation, etc. Today, there are many more tools available for discovering similar patterns in complex datasets from data mining and statistics. In addition, tools from management science such as Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) can be used to explore the data for patterns. Therefore, a more complex definition is: Bibliomining is the combination of data mining, bibliometrics, statistics, and reporting tools used to extract patterns of behavior-based artifacts from library systems – Business Technology – Information Economy – Knowledge Management KMNetwork and the WWW Virtual Library of Knowledge Management combined to bring together an excellent resource for research papers and portals on knowledge management and discovery. In depth research articles and research portals from over the entire global Internet discuss the business, technologies, processes, systems, sociology, creativity, psychology and philosophy of Knowledge Management.

Competitive Intelligence – A Selective Resource Guide – Completely Updated – December 2011 – Sabrina I.

Sabrina’s guide is a “best of” web resource that encompasses search engines, databases, alerts, publisher specific services and tools, along with links to content targeted sources produced by leading media organizations, governments, academia, NGOs and independent researchers.

Creative Commons RDF-Enhanced Search This search engine will help you find photos, music, text, books, educational material, and more that is free to share or build upon. Copyright applies fully and automatically to any work. a photograph, a song, a web page, an article, pretty much any form of expression, the moment it is created. This means that if you want to copy and re-use a creative work you find online, you usually have to ask the author’s permission. This “all rights reserved” protection is good thing for many authors and artists. But what about those who want you to use their work freely without permission — but on certain conditions? This search engine helps you quickly find those authors and the work they have marked as free to use with only “some rights reserved.” If you respect the rights they have reserved (which will be clearly marked, as you’ll see) then you can use the work without having to contact them and ask. In some cases, you may even find work in the public domain — that is, free for any use with “no rights reserved.”

Conceptual Graphs Conceptual graphs (CGs) are a system of logic based on the existential graphs of Charles Sanders Peirce and the semantic networks of artificial intelligence. They express meaning in a form that is logically precise, humanly readable, and computationally tractable. With their direct mapping to language, conceptual graphs serve as an intermediate language for translating computer-oriented formalisms to and from natural languages. With their graphic representation, they serve as a readable, but formal design and specification language. CGs have been implemented in a variety of projects for information retrieval, database design, expert systems, and natural language processing.

GMDH – Group Method of Data Handling Group Method of Data Handling was applied in a great variety of areas for data mining and knowledge discovery, forecasting and systems modeling, optimization and pattern recognition. Inductive GMDH algorithms give possibility to find automatically interrelations in data, to select optimal structure of model or network and to increase the accuracy of existing algorithms. This original self-organizing approach is substantially different from deductive methods used commonly for modeling. It has inductive nature – it finds the best solution by sorting-out of possible variants.
