AKSW Colloquium, 24 August, 3pm, Lucene, SOLR, FEASIBLE

In this colloquium, first, Kay Müller and Nilesh Chakraborty will give an overview of Lucene and SOLR and how they can be used in information retrieval scenarios, along with a short peek into ElasticSearch, introducing a few recent features, their respective use-cases and how they compare with SOLR.

Then, Muhammed Saleem will present his paper “FEASIBLE: A Featured-Based SPARQL Benchmark Generation Framework

Abstract: Benchmarking is indispensable when aiming to assess technologies with respect to their suitability for given tasks. While several benchmarks and benchmark generation frameworks have been developed to evaluate triple stores, they mostly provide a one-fits-all solution to the benchmarking problem. This approach to benchmarking is however unsuitable to evaluate the performance of a triple store for a given application with particular requirements. We address this drawback by presenting FEASIBLE, an automatic approach for the generation of benchmarks out of the query history of applications, i.e., query logs. The generation is achieved by selecting prototypical queries of a user-defined size from the input set of queries. We evaluate our approach on two query logs and show that the benchmarks it generates are accurate approximations of the input query logs. Moreover, we compare four different triple stores with benchmarks generated using our approach and show that they behave differently based on the data they contain and the types of queries posed. Our results suggest that FEASIBLE generates better sample queries than the state of the art. In addition, the better query selection and the larger set of query types used lead to triple store rankings which partly differ from the rankings generated by previous works.
