AKSW Colloquium, 22.02.2016, LDRank

Edgard MarxOn the 22th of February at 3 PM, Edgard Marx will present a paper titled “Ranking Entities in the Age of Two Webs, An Application to Semantic Snippets”.


During the last years data applications are using a big variety of algorithms in order to provide a better rank and/or results to the user.
These algorithms made use statistics, often found in the datasets (e.g. number of instances of a resource) as well as outside them (PageRank).
In this colloquium we are going to present one of this algorithms dubbed as LDRank.
LDRank explores the structure underlying the Web and the Web of Data to rank entities.
