      Measures of semantic distance have received a great deal of attention recently in the field of computational lexical semantics. Although techniques for approximating the semantic distance of two concepts have existed ...
    • A Semantic Distance of Natural Language Queries Based on Question-Answer Pairs 

      Xiong, Kun (University of Waterloo, 2014-08-21)
      Many Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques have been applied in the field of Question Answering (QA) for understanding natural language queries. Practical QA systems classify a natural language query into vertical ...
    • Semantic Order Compatibilities and Their Discovery 

      Mirsafian, Melicaalsadat (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-20)
      Ordered domains such as numbers and dates are common in real-life datasets. The SQL standard includes an ORDER BY clause to sort the results, and there has been research work on formalizing, reasoning about, and automatically ...
    • Semantic Search and Visual Exploration of Computational Notebooks 

      Li, Xingjun (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-12)
      Code search is an important and frequent activity for developers using computational notebooks (e.g., Jupyter). The flexibility of notebooks brings challenges for effective code search, where classic search interfaces for ...

      El-Sayed, Abdur-Rahman (University of Waterloo, 2007-01-08)
      Recent technological advancements are enabling the vision of pervasive or ubiquitous computing to become a reality. Service discovery is vital in such a computing paradigm, where a great number of devices and software ...
    • A Semi-Supervised Approach to the Construction of Semantic Lexicons 

      Ahmadi, Mohamad Hasan (University of Waterloo, 2012-03-21)
      A growing number of applications require dictionaries of words belonging to semantic classes present in specialized domains. Manually constructed knowledge bases often do not provide sufficient coverage of specialized ...
    • Semidefinite Embedding for the Dimensionality Reduction of DNA Microarray Data 

      Kharal, Rosina (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Harnessing the power of DNA microarray technology requires the existence of analysis methods that accurately interpret microarray data. Current literature abounds with algorithms meant for the investigation of microarray ...
    • Sentiment Lexicon Induction and Interpretable Multiple-instance Learning in Financial Markets 

      Fu, Chengyao (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
      Sentiment analysis has been widely used in the domain of finance. There are two most common textual sentiment analysis methods in finance: \textit{dictionary-based approach} and \textit{machine learning approach}. The ...
    • The Separate Compilation Assumption 

      Ali, Karim (University of Waterloo, 2014-09-19)
      Call graphs are an essential requirement for almost all inter-procedural analyses. This motivated the development of many tools and frameworks to generate the call graph of a given program. However, the majority of these ...
    • Serverless Data Analytics with Flint 

      Kim, Youngbin (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-30)
