(2015-01-21)As the number of security incidents and sophistication of those attacks increase, it is difficult to properly detect and diagnose malicious behavior. We conjecture that detection and diagnosis could be facilitated by an ...
(American Society for Information Science and Technology, 2010-10)Information resources seem to be neither fully abstract universals, nor particular concrete arrangements of matter and energy. The subjects of our metadata statements are therefore elusive. This puzzle presents few practical ...
(iSchools, 2013-02)VIVO, funded by NIH, utilizes Semantic Web technologies to model scientists and provides federated search to enhance the discovery of researchers and collaborators across disciplines and organizations. VIVO ontology is ...
FRBR as an interdisciplinary high-middle-range theory for information science — a theoretical perspective (2008-02-28)We suggest that IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records is an interesting, if unexpected, example of Merton’s “theories of the middle range” and show how theoretical analysis and refinement of such theories ...

(The American Society for Information Science & Technology, 2007)We examine the conceptual model of the “bibliographic universe” presented in IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and argue, applying ontology design recommendations proposed by N. Guarino and ...
(2013-02-03)Lack of human prior knowledge is one of the main reasons that the semantic gap still remains when it comes to automatic multimedia understanding. One difference between the human cognition system and state-of-the-art machine ...
(The American Society for Information Science & Technology, 2007-10)IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) is a model of the bibliographic universe. Although initially its application to the digital world appears to be straightforward, upon closer examination puzzles ...
(ASIST, Wiley, 2008)Formal accounts of digital objects often characterize them as bit strings, graphs, sets, tuples, relations, or other similar constructs from discrete mathematics. Such characterizations imply that these objects cannot ...
