An Influence Prediction Model for Microblog Entries on Public Health Emergencies

entries ( Riquelme & González, 2016 ). Among the studies on the influence of microblog users, scholars have also integrated or combined multiple direct indicators by constructing certain index systems or adopting mathematical modeling methods, in addition to putting forward indirect indicators, such as a mathematical model based on the PageRank algorithm to define the integrated indicator of users’ influence ( Kim, Lee & Straub, 2018 ), the location of the users’ network structure, and the dynamic interaction of the user in the network structure ( Hong, He, Ge, Wang

To Phrase or Not to Phrase – Impact of User versus System Term Dependence upon Retrieval

in their very large scale web log study carried out in 2005 ( Jansen, Booth, & Spink, 2009 ). They analysed 1,523,793 queries executed on the Dogpile meta search engine and found the average number of search terms per query reaching 2.79 SD =1, 54 terms (p. 1365, Table 4 ). Almost 71 % of the search sessions consisted of only one query. The above log studies include few direct analyses of how users perceive term dependence in queries through phrase operators. It seems that overall users rarely query using fixed phrases: phrases have been used in queries at a

Enhancing Clinical Decision Support Systems with Public Knowledge Bases

/prediction failure for the rare but important diseases that might have little data for training. In comparison to the related work on this part, our methods work on predicting wide range of diseases. This is because doctors’ medical literature search can be on all sorts of diseases so that our automatic diagnosis prediction system cannot afford to work only on a small number of diseases. Furthermore, we concentrate on proposing a diagnosis prediction system with no need on large quantity of training data. Finally, in contrast to past studies that only accepted well
