Analysis of graph and text representation techniques for news recommendation and news classification

Ağrıman, Mustafa
Developments in computer science leads to increase in the use of software applications in all areas of life. This also causes an increase in data usage. Applications using textual data involves tasks such as finding similarities between texts, detecting events from texts, and classifying texts. However, using graphs and graph vectors can be more successful than textual methods of representing textual information, due to capability to express additional features and complex relationships in graph structure. In this thesis, it is hypothesized that textual data expresse in graph structure will be more successful than direct text representation in areas such as news recommendation and news classification. Within the scope of the thesis study, different graph representation methods have been applied and the results obtained from these methods have been compared with the performance under text representations.


Using collaboration diagrams in component oriented modelin
Tuncel, Mehmet Burhan; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) seems to be the future of software engineering. Currently, COSEML is the only modeling language that completely supports the COSE approach. Abstract decomposition of the system and their representing components are shown in a hierarchy diagram to support the COSE process model. In COSEML, only static modeling is supported through this single diagram. However, software is about behavior and static modeling is not sufficient to describe the system. The aim of thi...
Characterizing the development and usage of diagrams in embedded software systems
Akdur, Deniz; Demirörs, Onur; Garousi, Vahid (2017-09-01)
To cope with growing complexity of embedded software, modeling has become popular. The usage of models in embedded software industry and the relevant practices usually vary since the purposes of diagram development and usage differ. Since a large variety of software modeling practices used in embedded software industry, it is important to understand its state-of-the-practice and its usage degree while investigating the relations between its attributes (e.g., modeling rigor, purpose, code correspondence, sta...
Using data analytics for collaboration patterns in distributed software team simulations
Dafoulas, Georgios A.; Serce, Fatma C.; SWİGGER, Kathleen; BRAZİLE, Robert; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Milewski, Allen (2016-08-05)
This paper discusses how previous work on global software development learning teams is extended with the introduction of data analytics. The work is based on several years of studying student teams working in distributed software team simulations. The scope of this paper is twofold. First it demonstrates how data analytics can be used for the analysis of collaboration between members of distributed software teams. Second it describes the development of a dashboard to be used for the visualization of variou...
Modelling and predicting binding affinity of PCP-like compounds using machine learning methods
Erdaş, Özlem; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Machine learning methods have been promising tools in science and engineering fields. The use of these methods in chemistry and drug design has advanced after 1990s. In this study, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) surfaces of PCP-like compounds are modelled and visualized in order to extract features which will be used in predicting binding affinity. In modelling, Cartesian coordinates of MEP surface points are mapped onto a spherical self-organizing map. Resulting maps are visualized by using values...
Performance comparison of pattern discovery methods on web log data
Bayir, Murat Ali; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Coşar, Ahmet (2006-03-11)
One of the popular trends in computer science has been development of intelligent web-based systems. Demand for such systems forces designers to make use of knowledge discovery techniques on web server logs. Web usage mining has become a major area of knowledge discovery on World Wide Web. Frequent pattern discovery is one of the main issues in web usage mining. These frequent patterns constitute the basic information source for intelligent web-based systems. In this paper; frequent pattern mining algorithm...
