Speech Title: Conceptual Modeling Views on SQL and NoSQL
Abstract: The three basic concepts in the
Entity Relationship Model are: object class,
relationship type, and attribute of object class
and relationship type. They are termed
ORA-semantics. Without knowing the ORA-semantics
in the databases, the quality of some databases
are low. The Relational Model does not capture
We first present some restrictions in the relational model such as limitations of normalization theory and limitations of Relational Model using the Universal Relation Assumption. We then discuss the requirements for traditional database applications in RDBMS using SQL and the performance issues, review some of the existing methods which can be used to improve the performances of certain database applications, such as materialized view design, horizontal and vertical partitioning of data, the concepts of strong FD/MVD and weak FD in physical database design, etc.
We further present some rarely-mentioned but very important issues in data and schema integration, such as entity resolution vs relationship resolution, primary key vs object identifier (OID), local OID vs global OID, local FD/MVD vs global FD/MVD, semantic dependency vs FD/MVD, etc. All these concepts are related to ORA-semantics and they have significant impact on the quality of the integrated database and schema.
We briefly present the basic data models of the 4 major categories of NoSQL databases, i.e. key-value store, wide-column store, document store, and graph database. We then give a conceptual modeling view on SQL vs NoSQL using a set of characteristics and requirements of database applications. We finally present a set of criteria to aid decision-making regarding when to use SQL or NoSQL for database applications.

Speech Title: Applying De-clustering Concept to Information Hiding
Abstract: Reversible steganography allows an original image to be completely restored after the extraction of hidden data embedded in a cover image. In this talk, I will talk about a reversible scheme based on declustering strategy for VQ compressed images. The declustering can be regarded as a preprocessing step to make the proposed steganographic method more efficient. Our experimental results show that the time required for the embedding process in the proposed method is few. In addition, the reversible steganography allows an original image to be completely restored after the extraction of hidden data embedded in a cover image. In this talk, l will introduce a reversible scheme for VQ-compressed images that is based on a declustering strategy and takes advantage of the local spatial characteristics of the image. The main advantages of our method are ease of implementation, low computational demands,and no requirement for auxiliary data.

Speech Title: Reinforcement Learning to Rank for Search Result Diversification
Abstract: The goal of search result diversification is to construct a document ranking for satisfying as many different query subtopics as possible. Typically, the diverse ranking process can be formalized as greedy sequential document selection. At each position, the document that can provide the largest amount of additional information to the users is selected. Since the utility of a document depends on its preceding documents in search result diversification, constructing an optimal document ranking is NP-hard. The traditional greedy document selection usually leads to suboptimal solutions. In the talk, I will show that the problem can be alleviated with a Monte Carlo tree search (MCTS) enhanced Markov decision process (MDP) model. Specifically, the sequential document selection process is fit into an MDP. At each time step the greedy action is further improved through the exploratory tree search by MCTS. Reinforcement learning algorithm was developed to learn the model parameters. Empirical evaluation clearly indicated the effectiveness of the approach. The MCTS enhanced MDP can also be applied to variant applications, including sequence tagging, text matching etc.
