Draft of a new ELF Dates standard

by Richard Smith

FHISO’s Technical Standing Committee is pleased to announce the first public draft of a new standard, Extended Legacy Format (ELF): Date, Age and Time Microformats, or ELF Dates for short. This draft defines microformats for representing dates, ages and times in arbitrary calendars together with how they are applied to the Gregorian, Julian, French Republican and Hebrew calendars in a GEDCOM-compatible manner. It is available as an HTML web page or as a PDF for download.

We welcome comments these, preferably to the tsc-public mailing list. A longer overview of this draft can be read in the the announcement email.

Merry Christmas from all at FHISO, and we wish you an enjoyable New Year.

ARIEX: Automated ranking of information extractors

Publication date: 1 February 2016
Source:Knowledge-Based Systems, Volume 93
Author(s): Patricia Jiménez, Rafael Corchuelo, Hassan A. Sleiman
Information extractors are used to transform the user-friendly information in a web document into structured information that can be used to feed a knowledge-based system. Researchers are interested in ranking them to find out which one performs the best. Unfortunately, many rankings in the literature are deficient. There are a number of formal methods to rank information extractors, but they also have many problems and have not reached widespread popularity. In this article, we present ARIEX, which is an automated method to rank web information extraction proposals. It does not have any of the problems that we have identified in the literature. Our proposal shall definitely help authors make sure that they have advanced the state of the art not only conceptually, but from an empirical point of view; it shall also help practitioners make informed decisions on which proposal is the most adequate for a particular problem.
