    Social media present a way to discover, report and share different types of events. For this reason, they are considered as a dynamic source of information which enables individuals to stay informed of all real-world events. This specificity encourages researchers to propose methods and approaches to detect events from social media. However many researchers are faced by divers challenges. This is due to the noise of data within the social media. In this paper, we propose a new approach for data retrieval and event detection, which differs from the previous ones by using the mashup concept. The proposed approach is able on the one hand to retrieve data from various social medias which have different structures. On the other hand, our approach aim to detect events with three main dimensions such as the topic, the time and the location.

    Ontologies provide shared and reusable pieces of knowledge about a specific domain. Building an ontology by hand is a very hard and prone to er-rors task. Ontology learning from existing resources provides a good solution to this issue. Databases are widely used to store data. They were often considered as the most reliable sources for knowledge extraction. NOSQL databases are more and more used to store data. MongoDB database is emerging as the fastest growing NOSQL database in the world. It belongs to the document oriented da-tabases variant. This paper proposes an approach to learn OWL ontology from data in MongoDB database and describes a tool implementing transformation rules.

    Ontologies are the main component of the semantic Web. Constructing large ontologies typically requires to reuse previously existing ones. Modularity is a key requirement for collaborative ontology engineering and for distributed ontology reuse on the Web. In this paper, we propose an approach to automatically compose ontology modules into a global ontology. Our approach is based on similarity measures computed against concept names, attributes and relationships. We also detail the algorithm allowing to merge the ontology modules into a global ontology.

    In recent years, several education systems have been developed. Consequently, each learner can have di fferent pro files which each one is related to a system. Each profi le can be completed and enriched by the data coming from the other profi les in order to return results reflecting the learner's need. The profi le enrichment requires the establishment of an interoperable system which i) resolves the problem of learner's profi le heterogeneity based on a matching process and ii) integrates the data in the diff erent profi les based on a data fusion process. The data fusion approaches mainly aim at resolving the conficts occurring in the data values. They are based on non organized pro les which may produce inconsistent results. The profi le organization is done either by using the machine learning techniques or the notion of temperature. In this paper, we propose a new data fusion approach to improve the conflict resolution by organized profi les. Each profi le is organized by respectively merging a clustering algorithm and the temperature and by taking into account the data semantic relationship.

LoTrust: A Social Trust Level Model based on Time-Aware Social Interactions and Interests Similarity. Fourteenth Annual Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust (PST 2016), decembre, 2016, Nouvelle-Zélande

    With the immense growth of online social applications, trust plays a more and more important role in connecting users to each other, sharing their personal information and attracting him to receive recommendations. Therefore, how to obtain trust relationships through mining online social networks became a critical issue. To calculate the level of trust between two users, many computational trust models are proposed which mainly rely on the social network structure, the explicit trust from user to another, the users’ behaviors, or the users’ similarity, etc. However, the majority of these models ignored the temporal factor. In this paper, we propose a trust relationship detection mechanism from an egocentric social network in order to compute the trust level between an active user and his directed friends. We propose a Level of social Trust model, that we called LoTrust, which is suitable for personalized recommendation purpose. This computational model founded on novel trust metric which is based not only on the users’ interests similarity according to their semantic social profiles (RDF/FOAF), but also takes into account the time factor of the users’ active interactions (e.g comments, share photo, wall posts, messages). We perform experiments on real life dataset extracted from Facebook. The experimental results demonstrated how our LoTrust model produces satisfactory results than other computational models.

    Information systems knowledge bases often include inference rules. The continuous growth of the facts in the recent information systems environments has caused the exponential increase of rule bases sizes. Therefore, rule bases management becomes more and more dicult. Such a task should be automated and based on the extraction of dependencies between rules in order to have a better insight on their correct execution order and to detect conflicts between them. In this paper, we describe a rules dependency extraction approach for Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) rules. Our approach insures the automatic extraction of a rule dependency graph based on the semantics of their components. We evaluated our work by applying it to two diff erent ontologies from medical and network security domains. We have implemented a prototype of our approach and we integrated it in a plug-in for Potege-Owl editor.

    Recommender systems suggest the most appropriate items to users in
    order to help customers to find the most relevant items and facilitate sales.
    Collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm is the most successful
    technique for recommendation. In view of the fact that collaborative filtering
    systems depend on neighbors as the source of information, the recommendation
    quality of this approach depends on the neighbor’s selection. However,
    selecting neighbors can either stem from similarity or trust metrics. In this
    paper, we analyze these two types of neighbor’s selection metrics used in the
    field of recommendation in the literature. For each type, we first define it and
    then review different proposed metrics.

Abstract The Bayesian Networks are graphical models that are easy to interpret and update. These models are useful if the knowledge is uncertain, but they lack some means to express ambiguity. To face this problem, we propose Fuzzy Evidence in Bayesian Networks and combine the Fuzzy Logic and Bayesian Network. This has allowed to benefit from mutual advantages of these two approaches, and to overcome the problem of data and observation ambiguity. This paper proposes an inference algorithm which uses the Bayesian Network and Fuzzy Logic reliability. This solution has been implemented, tested and evaluated in comparison with the existing methods.
