    Jianyong Zhang,Li Qian,Qianqian Yu,Zhipeng Dong,Yongwen Huang,Jianhua Liu,Shu Guo,Feng Wang
    2019, 3 (1): 27-37.  DOI: 10.11925/infotech.2096-3467.2018.1363
    Abstract   HTML ( 3 PDF (1870KB) ( 78 )

    [Objective] This paper aims to construct name authority for authors, institutions, journals, and funding, etc. [Methods] First, we loaded, cleansed, transformed, integrated and merged names from multiple sources to create uniform structured data with unique identifiers. Then, we used the metadata model for name authority to extract research entities and relationships among them. Finally, we proposed disambiguation algorithms, such as Levenshtein Distance, Jaccard, word2vec and CNN, for different research entities. [Results] Our study created name authority databases for authors (23 million records), institutions (2.6 million records), journals (30,000 records), and funding (2 million records). We chose six institutions’ names from NSTL and compared them with those from Incites. We found the average precision reached 86.8%. [Limitations] The proposed disambiguation strategies and algorithms need to be further refined and improved in dealing with the diverse expressions of selected disambiguation feature. The analysis of data from different data sources are needed, in order to apply appropriate algorithms. [Conclusions] The proposed method and disambiguation strategies could improve the performance and comprehensiveness of databases for name authority.

    2019, 3 (1): 38-45.  DOI: 10.11925/infotech.2096-3467.2018.1352
    Abstract   HTML ( 11 PDF (2582KB) ( 125 )

    [Objective] This paper tries to extract fine-grained knowledge units from texts with a deep learning model based on the modified bootstrapping method. [Methods] First, we built the lexicon for each type of knowledge unit with the help of search engine and keywords from Elsevier. Second, we created a large annotated corpus based on the bootstrapping method. Third, we controlled the quality of annotation with the estimation models of patterns and knowledge units. Finally, we trained the proposed LSTM-CRF model with the annotated corpus, and extracted new knowledge units from texts. [Results] We retrieved four types of knowledge units (study scope, research method, experimental data, as well as evaluation criteria and their values) from 17,756 ACL papers. The average precision was 91%, which was calculated manually. [Limitations] The parameters of models were pre-defined and modified by human. More research is needed to evaluate the performance of this method with texts from other domains. [Conclusions] The proposed model effectively addresses the issue of semantic drifting. It could extract knowledge units precisely, which is an effective solution for the big data acquisition process of intelligence analysis.

    Abstract   HTML ( 6 PDF (975KB) ( 110 )

    [Objective] This paper aims to identify innovative topics from massive volumes of texts. [Methods] First, we extracted knowledge points with heavier weights from the data of scholarly knowledge graph. Then, these knowledge points were labeled as innovative seeds from the perspectives of “popularity”, “novelty” and “authority”. Third, we computed the knowledge correlation of the innovative seeds. Finally, the results were input to a deep learning model trained by large amounts of sci-tech papers to generate innovative topics. Note: the model is sequence to sequence with Bi-LSTM. [Results] We used Chinese research papers on artificial intelligence as the experimental data and found the average innovation score of the retrieved topics was 6.52, which were evaluated by experts manually. [Limitations] At present, contents of the knowledge graph and the training datasets need to be improved. [Conclusions] The proposed model, which identifies innovative topics from scholarly papers, could be optimized in the future.

    Zixuan Zhang,Hao Wang,Liping Zhu,Sanhong eng
    2019, 3 (1): 72-84.  DOI: 10.11925/infotech.2096-3467.2018.0506
    Abstract   HTML ( 9 PDF (897KB) ( 68 )

    [Objective] This study tries to utilize patterns from the HS codes to provide effective knowledge service for the China customs taxation. [Methods] We proposed two machine learning-based automatic classification schemes. The first one directly used original HS codes as risk identifiers while the other one relied on the correctness of the HS codes. We also built a SVM prediction model and examined the two schemes from the perspectives of target structures and features, as well as the text length. [Results] We found that the second model required less training efforts and processing time and then reached better accuracy. [Limitations] Only used four-month-data to train the new models. [Conclusions] This study finds an effective way to forecast customs risks, and indicate directions of applicable products.

    2019, 3 (1): 95-103.  DOI: 10.11925/infotech.2096-3467.2018.0158
    Abstract   HTML ( 3 PDF (604KB) ( 112 )

    [Objective] This paper proposes a fine-grained sentiment analysis method based on Convolutional Neural Network(CNN). [Methods] First, we incorporated attribute features into the word vector model. Then, we extracted the keyword sets of the comments statistically based on the fine-grained attributes of products or services. Third, we constructed the eigenvectors of the comments with attributes of the target objects. Finally, we trained the modified CNN model to add the affective clustering layer of the input text vector. [Results] Compared with the traditional emotion classification model, the training results of the new CNN model were significantly improved in terms of precision, recall and F-score. [Limitations] Only examined the new model with comments from one field. [Conclusions] The fine-grained sentiment analysis method based on convolutional neural network can dramatically improve the precision of sentiment classification.

    Abstract   HTML ( 4 PDF (3869KB) ( 59 )

    [Objective] This paper proposes a new method to discover collaboration opportunities from emerging issues. [Methods] We used literature corpus of deep learning as the research object. Firstly, we explored the intrinsic characteristics of these literature with the LDA topic model. Then, we calculated their weights, and used topics as nodes to build topic co-occurrence network. Finally, we applied link prediction to find the potential opportunities. [Results] The optimal index of topic co-occurrence network in deep learning was AA. The big data analysis research in deep learning were more likely associated with the biomedical studies and the improvement of related algorithms. [Limitations] Link prediction generated poor results for badly connected networks. [Conclusions] The LDA topic model and link prediction method could help us find new collaboration opportunities from emerging issues.

    Abstract   HTML ( 4 PDF (1339KB) ( 189 )

    [Objective] This study aims to build a model for effectively predicting ratings of user reviews and analysing consumer behaviours. [Methods] First, we applied the Latent Dirichlet Allocation model to set the topic features from user reviews as independent variable and user ratings as dependent variable. Then, we built a user rating prediction model based on the eXtreme Gradient Boosting algorithm. Finally, we added the disturbances of samples and attributes to the proposed model for rating prediction. [Results] We used the new model to predict user’s comments on a domestic automobile online portal, and identified their preferences of automobile. Compared with the Logical Regression and Random Forest algorithms, the proposed model has better precision and efficiency. [Limitations] We need to include data from other fields to more comprehensively describe user’s behaviours. [Conclusions] The proposed model could quantify user’s reviews and then predict their ratings effectively.
