The Linked Data Strategy for Global Identity
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Hugh Glaser,Harry Halpin
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 68-71
The Web's promise for planet-scale data integration depends on solving the thorny problem of identity: given one or more possible identifiers, how can we determine whether they refer to the same or different things? Here, the authors discuss various ways t...
 
Social Meaning on the Web: From Wittgenstein to Search Engines
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Harry Halpin, Henry S. Thompson
Issue Date:November 2009
pp. 27-31
<p>Relevance feedback from hypertext Web searches considerably improves the performance of a Semantic Web search engine, creating a mutually beneficial relationship between the hypertext and Semantic Webs.</p>
 
An Experimental Analysis of Suggestions in Collaborative Tagging
Found in: Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on
By Dirk Bollen, Harry Halpin
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 108-115
Most tagging systems support the user in the tag selection process by providing tag suggestions, or recommendations, based on a popularity measurement of tags other users provided when tagging the same resource, like a web-page. In this paper we investigat...
 
Repeatable and reliable search system evaluation using crowdsourcing
Found in: Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information (SIGIR '11)
By Daniel M. Herzig, Harry Halpin, Henry S. Thompson, Jeffrey Pound, Peter Mika, Roi Blanco, Thanh Tran Duc
Issue Date:July 2011
pp. 923-932
The primary problem confronting any new kind of search task is how to boot-strap a reliable and repeatable evaluation campaign, and a crowd-sourcing approach provides many advantages. However, can these crowd-sourced evaluations be repeated over long perio...
     
Emergence of consensus and shared vocabularies in collaborative tagging systems
Found in: ACM Transactions on the Web (TWEB)
By Hana Shepherd, Harry Halpin, Valentin Robu
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 1-34
This article uses data from the social bookmarking site del.icio.us to empirically examine the dynamics of collaborative tagging systems and to study how coherent categorization schemes emerge from unsupervised tagging by individual users. First, we study ...
     
The role of tag suggestions in folksonomies
Found in: Proceedings of the 20th ACM conference on Hypertext and hypermedia (HT '09)
By Dirk Bollen, Harry Halpin
Issue Date:June 2009
pp. 70-73
Most tagging systems support the user in the tag selection process by providing tag suggestions, or recommendations, based on a popularity measurement of tags other users provided when tagging the same resource. The majority of theories and mathematical mo...
     
Is there anything worth finding on the semantic web?
Found in: Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web (WWW '09)
By Harry Halpin
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 66-66
There has recently been an upsurge of interest in the possibilities of combining structured data and ad-hoc information retrieval from traditional hypertext. In this experiment, we run queries extracted from a query log of a major search engine against the...
     
The complex dynamics of collaborative tagging
Found in: Proceedings of the 16th international conference on World Wide Web (WWW '07)
By Hana Shepherd, Harry Halpin, Valentin Robu
Issue Date:May 2007
pp. 211-220
The debate within the Web community over the optimal means by which to organize information often pits formalized classifications against distributed collaborative tagging systems. A number of questions remain unanswered, however, regarding the nature of c...
     
One document to bind them: combining XML, web services, and the semantic web
Found in: Proceedings of the 15th international conference on World Wide Web (WWW '06)
By Harry Halpin, Henry S. Thompson
Issue Date:May 2006
pp. 679-686
We present a paradigm for uniting the diverse strands of XML-based Web technologies by allowing them to be incorporated within a single document. This overcomes the distinction between programs and data to make XML truly "self-describing." A proposal for a...
     
Towards automated story analysis using participatory design
Found in: Proceedings of the 1st ACM workshop on Story representation, mechanism and context (SRMC '04)
By Harry Halpin, Johanna D. Moore, Judy Robertson
Issue Date:October 2004
pp. 75-83
Involving a school teacher in the development of the intelligent writing tutor StoryStation allowed progress to be made on the problem of story classication. An experienced Scottish school-teacher developed a rating scale and guidelines for StoryStation's ...
