Data Mining in Deductive Databases Using Query Flocks: Extended Abstract

An important technique for extracting useful information, such as regularities, from usually historical data, is called as association rule mining. The query flocks technique, which extends the concept of association rule mining with a "generate-and-test" model for different kind of patterns, can also be applied to deductive databases. In this paper, query flocks technique is extended further, with view definitions including recursive views. We have designed architecture to compile query flocks from datalog into SQL in order to be able to use commercially available DBMS's as an underlying engine. Since recursive datalog views (IDB's) cannot be converted directly into SQL statements, they are materialized before the final compilation operation.

Geotechnical Considerations for Mining Method Selection of a Potential Underground Iron Ore Mine in Mideastern, Turkey
Karpuz, Celal (null; 2013-10-01)
Geotechnical analysis plays an important role in determining mining method selection. This study presents the geotechnical design analysis of a potential U/G iron ore Mentes Mine at Yahyali province of Kayseri district in Turkey. Iron ore body is initially planned to be mined by using long hole mining method. Detailed geotechnical site investigation and laboratory work are carried out to assess the applicability of the selected mining method. Diamond-drilled borehole cores are logged and geotechnical charac...
Concurrency control for distributed multiversion databases through time intervals
Halıcı, Uğur (1991-04-01)
© 1991 ACM.Multiversion Schedulers are now a widely accepted method for enhancing performance of the concurrency control component of a database. When the read and write sets of transactions are known in advance, the amount of concurrency provided by the Multiversion Schedulers can further be improved. In this paper, a new concurrency control technique, which uses multiversion data in conjunction with predeclared read-write sets and the Time Interval technique is suggested. With the proposed method, a trans...
Improving the performance of Hadoop/Hive by sharing scan and computation tasks
Özal, Serkan; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
MapReduce is a popular model of executing time-consuming analytical queries as a batch of tasks on large scale data. During simultaneous execution of multiple queries, many oppor- tunities can arise for sharing scan and/or computation tasks. Executing common tasks only once can reduce the total execution time of all queries remarkably. Therefore, we propose to use Multiple Query Optimization (MQO) techniques to improve the overall performance of Hadoop Hive, an open source SQL-based distributed warehouse sy...
Efficient computation of strong partial transitive-closures
Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (null; 1993-01-01)
The development of efficient algorithms to process the different forms of the transitive-closure (TC) queries within the context of large database systems has recently attracted a large volume of research efforts. In this paper, we present a new algorithm suitable for processing one of these forms, the so called strong partially-instantiated, in which one of the query's argument is instantiated to a set of constants and the processing of which yields a set of tuples that draw their values form both of the q...
Process based information systems evaluation: Towards the attributes of "pRISE"
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Bilgen, Semih (2007-10-31)
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of undertaking a systemic view of information systems evaluation that augments the frequently reported prescriptive (cost/benefit) analysis approaches. Design/methodology/approach The paper adopts a qualitative case perspective and derives a framework for substantive information systems evaluation factors (PRISE). Three empirical formulations are considered and a comparison made to determine the content and context of the findings. Finding...
