1. Sébastien Ferré. Sparklis: An Expressive Query Builder for SPARQL Endpoints with Guidance in Natural Language. Semantic Web: Interoperability, Usability, Applicability, 8(3):405-418, 2017. [WWW] [doi:10.3233/SW-150208] Keyword(s): semantic search, SPARQL endpoint, query builder, faceted search, natural language.
Abstract:
 Sparklis is a Semantic Web tool that helps users explore and query SPARQL endpoints by guiding them in the interactive building of questions and answers, from simple ones to complex ones. It combines the fine-grained guidance of faceted search, most of the expressivity of SPARQL, and the readability of (controlled) natural languages. No knowledge of the vocabulary and schema are required for users. Many SPARQL features are covered: multidimensional queries, union, negation, optional, filters, aggregations, ordering. Queries are verbalized in either English or French, so that no knowledge of SPARQL is ever necessary. All of this is implemented in a portable Web application, Sparklis, and has been evaluated on many endpoints and questions. No endpoint-specific configuration is necessary as the data schema is discovered on the fly by the tool. Online since April 2014, thousands of queries have been formed by hundreds of users over more than a hundred endpoints.

1. Guillaume Aucher, Annie Foret, JeanBaptiste Lenhof, Olivier Ridoux, Francois Schwarzentruber, and al.. Principles for a judgement editor based on Multi-BDDs. In MIning and REasoning with Legal texts at ICAIL, London, 2017. [WWW]
Abstract:
 We describe the theoretical principles that underlie the design of a software tool which could be used by judges for writing judgements and for making decisions about litigations. The tool is based on Binary Decision Diagrams (BDD), which are graphical representations of truth-valued functions associated to propositional formulas. Given a specific litigation, the tool asks questions to the judge; each question is represented by a propositional atom. Their answers, true or false, allow to evaluate the truth value of the formula which encodes the overall recommendation of the software about the litigation. Our approach combines some sort of theoretical' or legal' reasoning dealing with the core of the litigation itself together with some sort of procedural' reasoning dealing with the protocol that has to be followed by the judge during the trial: some questions or group of questions must necessarily be examined and sometimes in a specific order. That is why we consider extensions of BDDs called Multi-BDDs. They are BDDs with multiple entries corresponding to the different specific issues that must necessarily be addressed by the judge during the trial. We illustrate our ideas on a case study dealing with French union trade elections, an example that has been used throughout a project with the French Cour de cassation. We end the article by sketching the architecture of a prototype software that has been developed during this project.

4. Shridhar B. Dandin and Mireille Ducassé. Compact Visualization of Database Tables: Experimenting with Cricket Players Data. In 3rd International Conference on Communication System, Pilani, India, Short paper, 2017.
Abstract:
 Database information is in the form of tables, that is two-dimensional row/column display. For large databases, the tabular data is difficult to read at a time for the aggregated results. Online Analytical database Processing (OLAP) proposes mechanisms to display data in aggregated forms. A choropleth map is a thematic map in which areas are colored in proportion to the measurement of a statistical variable being displayed, such as population density. They are used mostly for compact graphical representation of geographical information. We propose a system that adapts choropleth maps and the OLAP cube to visualize tabular data in a compact way. Our proposal displays multidimensional data like OLAP Cube (a multidimensional data set also called as hyper cube), where we are mapping coloring of database table record based on two attributes $a$ (first dimension) and $b$ (second dimension), mapping varying-size circles based on attribute $c$ (third dimension), mapping numbers based on attribute $d$ (fourth dimension). We illustrate our approach on Cricket players data, namely on two linked tables 'Country' and 'Player'. They have a large number of rows and columns like 16 rows, 9 columns and 251 rows and 17 columns. The visualization presented by the system reduces the size of the table by a factor of about 4, allowing users to grasp more information at a time than the bare table display.

Abstract:
 Nous introduisons la notion de {\em concept de voisins} comme alternative à la notion de distance numérique dans le but d'identifier les objets les plus similaires à un objet requête, comme dans la méthode des plus proches voisins. Chaque concept de voisins est composé d'une intension qui décrit symboliquement ce que deux objets ont en commun et d'une extension qui englobe les objets qui se trouvent entre les deux. Nous définissons ces concepts de voisins pour des données complexes, les graphes de connaissances, où les n{\oe}uds jouent le rôle d'objets. Nous décrivons un algorithme {\em anytime} permettant d'affronter la complexité élevée de la tâche et nous présentons de premières expérimentations sur un graphe RDF de plus de 120.000 triplets.

In Jinho Kim, Kyuseok Shim, Longbing Cao, Jae-Gil Lee, Xuemin Lin, and Yang-Sae Moon, editors, Advances in Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining, Cham, pages 110-121, 2017. Springer International Publishing.
Abstract:
 In the retail context, there is an increasing need for understanding individual customer behavior in order to personalize marketing actions. We propose the novel concept of customer signature, that identifies a set of important products that the customer refills regularly. Both the set of products and the refilling time periods give new insights on the customer behavior. Our approach is inspired by methods from the domain of sequence segmentation, thus benefiting from efficient exact and approximate algorithms. Experiments on a real massive retail dataset show the interest of the signatures for understanding individual customers.

Abstract:
 Logical Concept Analysis [1] (LCA) extends the Formal Concept Analysis [4] (FCA) approach. Recently, this approach has been undertaken for terminology, a workflow has been developed to go from XML data to a logical information context. Through experiments on specific resources, facet designs have been tuned to facilitate the search and control on the data. We will consider several usages of such contexts and illustrate benefits of the approach.
