Big Data and Information Analytics: latest papers Latest articles for selected journal ADERSIM-IBM partnership in big data Ali Asgary and Jianhong Wu Sat, 1 Oct 2016 08:00:00 GMT Analyzing opinion dynamics in online social networks Robin Cohen, Alan Tsang, Krishna Vaidyanathan and Haotian Zhang Sat, 1 Oct 2016 08:00:00 GMT Modeling daily guest count prediction SW-LAR-LASSO is proposed. We compare multiple regression model, poisson regression model, and the proposed SW-LAR-LASSO model for prediction. Experimental results show that the approach of combining sliding windows and LAR-LASSO produces the best results with the highest precision. This approach can also be applied to other areas where temporal variations exist in the data. ]]> Ricky Fok, Agnieszka Lasek, Jiye Li and Aijun An Sat, 1 Oct 2016 08:00:00 GMT A testbed to enable comparisons between competing approaches for computational social choice John A.

I attempt to disentangle -- and clarify -- how these terms are in fact interpreted by practitioners in such diverse disciplines as information science, historical research, empirical sciences, cognitive science, data mining and computer programming and to identify what appears to be a common thread. ]]> Subrata Dasgupta Sat, 1 Oct 2016 08:00:00 GMT On identifiability of 3-tensors of multilinear rank $(1,\ L_{r},\ L_{r})$ Ming Yang, Dunren Che, Wen Liu, Zhao Kang, Chong Peng, Mingqing Xiao and Qiang Cheng Sat, 1 Oct 2016 08:00:00 GMT
