Social Network Mining for Analysis of Social Phenomena
In den letzten zehn Jahren wurde eine große Menge an Daten über menschliche Interaktionen verfügbar, die entweder aus sozialen Online-Netzwerken stammen oder von tragbaren Geräten erfasst wurden. Die klassischen Sozialwissenschaften bieten keine Instrumente für die Durchführung datengetriebener Forschung mit solchen Daten. Die computerorientierte Sozialwissenschaft (Computational Social Science) versucht, diese Lücke zu schließen, indem sie Methoden für Data-Mining und maschinelles Lernen zur Nutzung der Daten aus ...
Discovering Knowledge in Bipartite Graphs with Formal Concept Analysis
Since the 1970s knowledge based approaches are a crucial part of artificial intelligence (AI) research. In this work we investigate data sets in the form of bipartite graphs, i.e., graphs where a bipartition of the vertex set respecting the edge set can be found, for knowledge. To this end we first relate those bipartite graphs to the structure formal context, as used in formal concept analysis (FCA). This link enables us to employ the whole tool-set of FCA to bipartite graphs and therefore, notably, to bipartite ...
Analyzing Given Names
Computer science has evolved so much that it influences almost every part of human live. A particularly personal part of human live is the selection of a given name for a newborn baby. The name discovery service Nameling is our way to help expectant parents with this decision. It is a web service that helps parents to find a given name for their newborn baby. We want to further improve the user experience of Nameling by personalizing its name results for the current user. We deem this important, because the selection ...
Conceptual knowledge discovery and data analysis
In this paper, we discuss Conceptual Knowledge Discovery in Databases (CKDD) in its connection with Data Analysis. Our approach is based on Formal Concept Analysis, a mathematical theory which has been developed and proven useful during the last 20 years. Formal Concept Analysis has led to a theory of conceptual information systems which has been applied by using the management system TOSCANA in a wide range of domains. In this paper, we use such an application in database marketing to demonstrate how methods and ...
Conceptual information systems discussed through an IT-security tool
Conceptual Information Systems are based on a formalization of the concept of "concept" as it is discussed in traditional philosophical logic. This formalization supports a human-centered approach to the development of Information Systems. We discuss this approach by means of an implemented Conceptual Information System for supporting IT security management in companies and organizations.
CEM - a conceptual Email manager
CEM is an email management system which stores its email in a concept lattice rather than in the usual tree structure. By using such a conceptual multi-hierarchy, the system provides more flexibility in retrieving stored emails. The paper presents the underlying mathematical structures, discusses requirements for their maintenance and presents their implementation.
Concept exploration - a tool for creating and exploring conceptual hierarchies
Concept exploration is a knowledge acquisition tool for interactively exploring the hierarchical structure of finitely generated lattices. Applications comprise the support of knowledge engineers by constructing a type lattice for conceptual graphs, and the exploration of large formal contexts in formal concept analysis.
Exploration tools in formal concept analysis
The development of conceptual knowledge systems specifically requests knowledge acquisition tools within the framework of formal concept analysis. In this paper, the existing tools are presented, and furhter developments are discussed.
