Multilingual dynamic linking of web resources

Dönmez, Uğur
The World Wide Web is successful for locating, browsing and publishing information by its scalable architecture. However, the Web suffers from some limitations. For example, links on the Web are embedded in documents. Links are only unidirectional, ownership is required to place an anchor in documents, and authoring links is an expensive process. The embedded link structure of the Web can be improved by Semantic Web. By using Semantic Web components, existing Web resources can be enriched with additional external links. COHSE is a project that aims to solve this problem. Although COHSE is successful in dynamic linking, it is monolingual. In our work, we aim to solve this problem. MOHSE is a project that dynamically link Web resources in different languages. In order to achieve our goal, firstly, we researched multilingual controlled vocabularies, their representation, and their use in dynamic linking. Secondly, we investigated existing multilingual controlled vocabularies. Thirdly, we extended COHSE infrastructure to support multilingualism. Finally, we performed experiments with this extended infrastructure. Outcomes show that MOHSE is useful and increases user's Web performance. This thesis contributes to multilingualism on the Web. MOHSE is the prior work that supports multilingual dynamic linking.


Enhancing content management systems with semantic capabilities
Gönül, Suat; Çiçekli Kesim, Nihan; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
Content Management Systems (CMS) generally store data in a way that the content is distributed among several relational database tables or stored in files as a whole without any distinctive characteristics. These storage mechanisms cannot provide the management of semantic information about the data. They lack semantic retrieval, search and browsing of the stored content. To enhance non-semantic CMSes with advanced semantic features, the semantics within the CMS itself and additional semantic information re...
Web usage mining and recommendation with semantic information
Salın, Süleyman; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Web usage mining has become popular in various business areas related with Web site development. In Web usage mining, the commonly visited navigational paths are extracted in terms of Web page addresses from the Web server visit logs, and the patterns are used in various applications. The semantic information of the Web page contents is generally not included in Web usage mining. In this thesis, a framework for integrating semantic information with Web usage mining is implemented. The frequent navigational ...
Genetic algorithms for distributed database design and distributed database query optimization
Sevinç, Ender; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
The increasing performance of computers, reduced prices and ability to connect systems with low cost gigabit ethernet LAN and ATM WAN networks make distributed database systems an attractive research area. However, the complexity of distributed database query optimization is still a limiting factor. Optimal techniques, such as dynamic programming, used in centralized database query optimization are not feasible because of the increased problem size. The recently developed genetic algorithm (GA) based optimi...
Exploring the relationship between web presence and web usability for universities A case study from Turkey
Peker, Serhat; Kucukozer-Cavdar, Seyma; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Emerald, 2016-01-01)
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to statistically explore the relationship between web usability and web presence of the universities. As a case study, five Turkish universities in different rankings which were selected from Webometrics rankings were evaluated and compared.
Improved probabilistic matrix factorization model for sparse datasets /
Ar, Yılmaz; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2014)
The amount of information on the World Wide Web has increased significantly owing to advancing web and information technologies. This has made it difficult for users to obtain relevant and useful information thus there is a need for information filtering. Recommender Systems (RS) have emerged as a technique to overcome the problem. Collaborative Filtering (CF) that is one of the widely used RS approaches aims to predict users’ preference concerning an item. The main idea behind CF is the users who agreed in...
