Instruction of Consulting and Research Knowledge Service System

Consulting and research knowledge service system is a platform to provide

resources discovery and support to academician advisory committees for their

strategic consulting researches. This platform involved in many technical

frameworks and infrastructures including data collection, data cleansing, data

index and data visualization. To accomplish the work we utilized the

mainstream technology like NodeJS, RESTful, Elasticsearch, Data Visualization,

and BigData etc, which will be introduced next separately.

Prof.Ling Chen

Infrastructures for Big Data
Big data have the 3V characteristics (i.e., Volume, Velocity, Variety), and
traditional relational DBMS based infrastructures cannot meet the requirement
of big data. Recently, new infrastructures (e.g., Hadoop, Spark) are emerged
and widely used in different big data applications. In this talk, the basic
concepts and principles of these infrastructures are introduced, including HDFS,
MapReduce, HBase, Hive, Mahout, Imapla, YARN, RDD, Spark SQL, and etc.

Prof. Donghui
Donghui Wang, received Ph.D. degree in computer science
from Zhejiang University. His research Interests are in

intelligence. His research project “Deep Attribute Feature
learning and Its Application” is supported by National
Natural Science Foundations of China.
Deep Search
Deep Search is one of key techniques of CKCEST project. It provides an
important tool which can efficiently explore and discover knowledge form
various data sources. Deep Search proposed several innovative models to
search knowledge, which expand the typical search strategies in breadth and
depth. Deep Search also can accept the user’s natural language questions and
return the answers. By using a wealth of knowledge network, Deep Search can
learn to mine the implicit relationship. Deep Search can not only be applied to
CKCEST project, but also as a general technology to other areas.

Knowledge Graph Population via Deep Learning
Deep learning is a powerful approach for knowledge graph population. In this
lecture, I will introduce some basic concepts and methods of embedding
entities and relations in a knowledge graph into a low-dimensional continuous
vector space (the distributed representations). As a result, we can employ the
learnt embedding functions to detect the new entities and new relations to
enrich a knowledge graph.

Prof.  Xi Li
As a young 1000-plan talent, Dr. Xi Li is currently a full

Telecom, Paris, France. His research topics were image
segmentation and annotation.
Large-scale Visual Data Analysis
Massive visual data usually involve a wide variety of topics and events, which
typically characterize their semantic content from either the static or the
dynamic perspectives. Effectively understanding such visual data play an
important role in public event detection, public opinion analysis, and public
security early-warning. It requires to bridge the semantic information across
different modalities, that is, cross-media visual data analysis. Moreover, it is
also interdisciplinary because of involving a set of mutually related research
fields such as computer vision, machine learning, data mining, multimedia,
human cognitive science, etc.

Professional Knowledge Service System for Chinese Herbal Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) plays an indispensable role in the health
care for Chinese people for several thousand years. PKSS-CHM aims to build a
knowledge network of medicine-formula-disease-syndrome in TCM. Built on
top of data aggregation, association and more advanced data and knowledge
processing technologies in the fields of AI and data mining, now PKSS-CHM
grows up to a comprehensive knowledge learning and sharing platform. The
knowledge source of PKSS-CHM includes literature, clinical records, prof-
essional databases and websites. It could help to improve doctors’ clinical
practice, broaden researchers’ horizons, facilitate students’ learning and share
patients’ treatment experiences.
