      Date Posted: 4/1/2018 12:00:00 AM The authors propose to use formatting templates and implicit formatting semantics information for automatic metadata identification and segmentation. The pure texts and their corresponding formatting information including line height, font type, and font size, are recognized in parallel to guide metadata identification. The authors use implicit formatting semantics, such as the change of formatting, formatting templates and implications, explicit formatting layouts, as well as predefined frequently occurred keywords database to increase the extraction accuracy. Unlike other OCR-based approaches, the authors use open source PDFBox package as the basic preprocessing tool to get pure texts and formatting values of the document contents. On top of PDFBox they built their own pipeline program, namely, PAXAT, to implement their approaches for metadata extraction. 10177 papers from arXiv, ACM, ACL and other publicly accessed and institution-subscribed sources are tested. The overall extraction accuracy of title, authors, affiliations, author-affiliation matching are 0.9798, 0.9425, 0.9298, and 0.9109, respectively.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

  • An Efficient Stochastic Update Propagation Method in Data Warehousing

      DOI : 10.4018/JDM.2018040102
      Date Posted: 4/1/2018 12:00:00 AM This article develops a stochastic update propagation method for an operational data store (ODS) in data warehousing (DW) environments where data storage (and retrieval) is required as a sum of data at distributed source nodes. The authors' proposed method results in less network traffic (as compared with the real-time method) due to update propagation required because of changes in source data. More importantly, the method allows system users to place limits on the discrepancy between the source data and the ODS data that could result due to a time lag between source data changes and the update operation. Finally, the pre-specified limits on the discrepancy are maintained while accounting for two crucial factors in distributed systems: 1) some nodes are situated on more congested network links, and 2) some of the links on the network are less reliable. Real-time data propagation does not account for these frequently encountered networking concerns.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

  • To Evaluate or Not to Evaluate': A Two-Process Model of Innovation
           Adoption Decision Making

      DOI : 10.4018/JDM.2018040103
      Date Posted: 4/1/2018 12:00:00 AM Using information processing theory (IPT) as the theoretical lens and incorporating various literatures following the IPT lens (e.g., dual-threshold in signal detection), this article develops a two-process model of innovation adoption decision making, accounting for the possibility for potential adopters (at different levels) to make adoption decisions (adopt, do not adopt) with or without an intensive evaluation of the innovation. Specifically, this article proposes that there is an attention process prior to the extensively investigated intensive evaluation process; potential adopters may make adoption decisions (adopt, do not adopt) at the end of the attention process or defer making decisions until after an intensive evaluation is conducted. The impacts of innovation attributes on various influence targets (i.e., relative advantage belief strength, adoption threshold and rejection threshold) during the less examined attention process are also discussed. This article may contribute to the innovation adoption literature and provide practical implications for innovation proponents/detractors regarding how to craft sensegiving messages influencing potential adopters' decision making.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 4/1/2018 12:00:00 AM In order to solve the poor performance problem of massive rules reasoning, as well as the inconsistency problem of working memory in distributed rule matching, this article presents the formal definition of interference relations between rules, and proposes a novel approach to distributed rule matching and multiple firing based on MapReduce. This approach adopts the way of access request control to detect and exclude interference rules, then selects several rule instantiations to perform multiple firing and concurrent execution, thus reducing the number of inference cycles effectively. By detecting the interferences between rules, this method selects and executes compatible rule sets, and avoids the inconsistency problem of system working memory. In order to verify the validity of the authors' approach, this article developes a production system based on MapReduce, and applied this approach in the master server of a distributed production system. The experimental results show that their method can promote the performance of massive rules reasoning effectively.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

  • Beyond Micro-Tasks: Research Opportunities in Observational Crowdsourcing

      Authors : Roman Lukyanenko (University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada), Jeffrey Parsons (Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, Canada)

      Date Posted: 1/1/2018 12:00:00 AM The emergence of crowdsourcing as an important mode of information production has attracted increasing research attention. In this article, the authors review crowdsourcing research in the data management field. Most research in this domain can be termed tasked-based, focusing on micro-tasks that exploit scale and redundancy in crowds. The authors' review points to another important type of crowdsourcing – which they term observational – that can expand the scope of extant crowdsourcing data management research. Observational crowdsourcing consists of projects that harness human sensory ability to support long-term data acquisition. The authors consider the challenges in this domain, review approaches to data management for crowdsourcing, and suggest directions for future research that bridges the gaps between the two research streams.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      DOI : 10.4018/JDM.2018010102
      Date Posted: 1/1/2018 12:00:00 AM This article describes how domain-specific modeling languages (DSML) are developed to specifically model certain domains and their phenomena. Over the last 15 years, different kinds of DSMLs have been ontologically analyzed to improve their ontological expressiveness. However, the term ‘ontological analyses' encompasses a great variety of different purposes, techniques or methods, and can thus be performed in many different ways without maintaining clear differentiation. Therefore, in this article, the authors aim to structure the process of conducting an ontological analysis, and offers guidelines in the form of descriptive patterns for analyzing a DSML. With the help of this framework, a researcher with a specific purpose can recognize the required patterns and types of methods that can be followed in order to successfully conduct an ontological analysis and achieve the intended purpose.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.

      Date Posted: 1/1/2018 12:00:00 AM This article describes how with the continuous expansion on the volume of data produced by sensors in Cyber Physical Systems, the scale of the cloud storage system has become larger. This will lead to the problems of a high energy consumption rate and a low utilization becoming a serious issue. In order to enhance the effective energy consumption, reduce the invalid energy consumption, and supply more flexible QoS for users in CPS, this article proposes an automatic energy gear-shifting mechanism with flexible QoS constraints (QGLG). The QGLG predicts system load of the follow-up period through a support vector machine model. According to the current system load, the predicted load, and the flexible QoS, QGLG automatically up-shifts and down-shifts among nodes. Substantive results from the simulation experiments done on GridSim show that the QGLG can achieve energy consumption reduction while satisfying the user's flexible QoS requirements. Compared with a similar energy-reducing mechanism, QGLG has its obvious advantage when considering the requirements of user with energy saved notwithstanding.This article is available on IGI Global’s premier research database, InfoSci-Journals.
