[Illinois] CSE 2013: Modeling the Earth's Climate System From Petascale to Exascale
02 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Donald Wuebbles
Scientific evidence strongly indicates that human activities are playing a significant role in bringing about major changes in our climate system, particularly in the last five decades. Significant changes in climate as a result of these human activities are projected for the rest of the 21st...
[Illinois] CSE 2013: Making Sense of Unstructured Data
02 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Dan Roth
Recent studies have shown that over 85% of the information people and organizations deal with is unstructured – the vast majority of which is text in different forms. A multitude of techniques has to be used in order to enable intelligent access to this information and support transforming it to...
[Illinois] CSE 2013: Generating Rich Event Data on Civil Strife: A Progressive Supervised-Learning Approach Part 1
02 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Scott Althaus
This paper examines the challenges and opportunities that "big data" poses to scholars advancing research frontiers in the social sciences. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of machine-based and human-centric approaches to information extraction and argues for use of a hybrid approach, one...
