Chimera: hypermedia for heterogeneous software development enviroments
Kenneth M. Anderson, Richard N. Taylor, E. James Whitehead, Jr.
Pages: 211-245
DOI: 10.1145/352595.352596
Emerging software development environments are characterized by heterogeneity: they are composed of diverse object stores, user interfaces, and tools. This paper presents an approach for providing hypermedia services in this heterogeneous...

The maximum entropy approach and probabilistic IR models
Warren R. Greiff, Jay M. Ponte
Pages: 246-287
DOI: 10.1145/352595.352597
This paper takes a fresh look at modeling approaches to information retrieval that have been the basis of much of the probabilistically motivated IR research over the last 20 years. We shall adopt a subjectivist Bayesian view of probabilities...

Data integration using similarity joins and a word-based information representation language
William W. Cohen
Pages: 288-321
DOI: 10.1145/352595.352598
The integration of distributed, heterogeneous databases, such as those available on the World Wide Web, poses many problems. Herer we consider the problem of integrating data from sources that lack common object identifiers. A solution to this...
