Uncertain Queries Processing in Probabilistic Framework

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Many applications today need to manage data that is uncertain, such as Information Extraction (IE), data integration, sensor RFID networks, and scientific experiments. Top-k queries are often natural and useful in analyzing uncertain data in those applications. In this paper, the authors study the problem of answering top-k queries in a probabilistic framework from a state-of-the-art statistical IE model-semi-Conditional Random Fields (CRFs)-in the setting of Probabilistic Databases that treat statistical models as first-class data objects.
