NLP programming with lexical, syntactic and semantic approach


Abstract

Nowadays, a huge volume of textual data is available on the web and to use them, first we need to process them so that we can extract the knowledge within them. Processing information can be done in 3 levels: lexical, syntactic and semantic. In this workshop, we discuss these types of processing and we go over queries for linked data to extract information using processes done in the first 4 stages.

Summary of text processing (lexical, syntax, and semantics)
Coding for lexical text processing using Stanford library
Coding for syntactic text processing (Coreference and parsing) using Stanford library
Coding to connect to link extraction tools such as spotlight, DBpedia and TAGme, and semantic text processing
Coding to connect to Wordnet to extract similarities using existing relations for semantic text processing
Coding to perform queries on linked data using previous processing’s.

Search Engines


Abstract

Nowadays, the volume of information on the internet is growing rapidly. Although this growth has many benefits, it is the reason for new challenges. The main challenge of the internet is how to retrieve the user’s requested information from a mass of information. This retrieval is done by search engines. Today, search engines are counted as one of the main components of the internet and we can hardly imagine the internet without them. To know how they work, first, we need to know their components and understand their tasks. In this workshop, we will briefly review how a search engine works and introduce algorithms used to retrieve information and page ranking which is done by search engines. After this workshop, you will have a general insight on search engines architectures and mainly used algorithms in search engines.

Social Network Analysis Using Deep Learning Approach


Abstract

Nowadays, many people use social network’s features as one of the most popular tools of communication to communicate with each other, share news or their subjects of interests. A huge volume of interaction data created by users and their behavior has acted as motivation for researchers to discover knowledge. This information can be categorized into three categories: textual information, link information, and time information. Since most of the data created by users are text, textual data plays an important role in knowledge discovery from social networks. Text data in social networks are short and contains idioms, abbreviation and misspelled words. Also, users are not required to obey grammatical rules. Therefore, despite many advancements in NLP techniques, considering the points mentioned, processing text messages of a social network is known as a challenge because these techniques need manual feature extraction which is time consuming and usually results in an incomplete set of features. Deep learning methods have made feature extraction easy enough that these methods are commonly used in NLP. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the social network and how to use deep learning in social networks’ textual data processing. This workshop is divided into two main parts. Headlines are listed below.

Getting to know Microsoft’s business intelligence and data mining tools in SQL Server 2016


Abstract

The rapid change in the operations environment of companies and organizations drives them to use computer support for their operations. This means that pressure from outside of the firm leads to the creation of a response approach inside the organization which should be fast considering environment speed. This is due to the environment being very competitive and thus to have a quick response time, computer systems must come to firm’s assist. Computer systems can make the response process faster and easier. Business intelligence systems help managers and businesses in a variety of ways:
• They facilitate calculations and speed them up.
• They improve communication and cooperation.
• They increase the productivity of the people.
• They will enable and improve data management.
• They increase accessibility
These methods have resulted in fundamental decisions in businesses which will end up making decision support systems for organizations, firms, and businesses. The outlook of business intelligence can be described as follows: “Improving operations and key processes of a business through supplying information and crucial knowledge about business in the right time, right format and for all organizational levels”. The main purpose of business intelligence is to optimize, analyze, control and monitor business processes and operations. Following business intelligence purposes, three main functions in different businesses are created which are as follows:
• To create vision: make use of businesses’ past and present to predict the future.
• Management and analysis of business: define key performance indicators.
• Reporting: makes manual reports of every moment on different aspects of the system’s data.
Nowadays, data analysis is easy due to using tools and techniques of this field. One of the most effective methods of data analysis is data mining, which searches to discover knowledge from big databases in the form of patterns and probabilistic rules.

Recommending Systems


Abstract

Nowadays, the importance of recommending systems are not overlooked. These systems are noticed due to their effective role in reducing information overhead and increasing sales and business boom, especially in E-commerce. The purpose of these systems is to predict the rating or priority that user will give to different items. These items can be movie, music, book, news, papers, commercial products and etc. these systems use users’ behavior analysis and items to recommend best items to users and helps their users to reach their target faster in a huge volume of data. In this workshop, we introduce different kinds of recommending systems and their uses in our environment, their common methods, their challenges, and their evaluation metrics
