In search of free will

The thesis is propelled towards a rethinking of the preponderant tenets of an existentialist dialectical conception of totalizing projects undertaken by different parts of social totalities. With an overriding interest in reconstruing the present human potentialities that are afforded by the late capitalist relations of domination, production and reproduction, the ontological premises and epistemological preconditions that enable this theorization of praxis are unraveled. Taking his cue from the Adornian mo...

Within the framework of the portal concept, the vector portal, which brings its own ...

In praise of laziness: A lazy strategy for web information extraction
Ozcan, Rifat; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Ulusoy, Özgür (2012-04-27)
A large number of Web information extraction algorithms are based on machine learning techniques. For such extraction algorithms, we propose employing a lazy learning strategy to build a specialized model for each test instance to improve the extraction accuracy and avoid the disadvantages of constructing a single general model.
