      In this demo, we would like to show how cooperative learning features have been added to the Moodle LMS, creating a virtual environment called DIEL.
    • DigitHist: a Histogram-Based Data Summary with Tight Error Bounds 

      Shekelyan M; Dignös A; Gamper J (2017)
      We propose DigitHist, a histogram summary for selectivity estimation on multi-dimensional data with tight error bounds. By combining multi-dimensional and one-dimensional histograms along regular grids of different ...
    • Discovering the Top-k Unexplained Sequences in Time-Stamped Observation Data 

      Albanese, M; Molinaro, C; Persia, F; Picariello, A; Subrahmanian, VS (2014)
      There are numerous applications where we wish to discover unexpected activities in a sequence of time-stamped observation data—for instance, we may want to detect inexplicable events in transactions at a website or in video ...
    • A distributed architecture for policy-customisable multi-tenant Processes-as-a-Service 

      Wang MX; Bandara KY; Pahl C (2016)
      Service-based business processes are often developed and deployed by single organizations. In distributed, shared resource environments like the cloud on the other hand, consumers share resources owned by cloud providers. ...
    • Distribution pattern-driven development of service architectures 

      Barrett R; Pahl C (Technische Universitaet Graz, 2009)
      Distributed systems are being constructed by composing a number of discrete components. This practice is particularly prevalent within the Web service domain in the form of service process orchestration and choreography. ...
    • Distributional semantic pre-filtering in context-aware recommender systems 

      Codina V; Ricci R; Ceccaroni L (2016)
      Context-aware recommender systems improve context-free recommenders by exploiting the knowledge of the contextual situation under which a user experienced and rated an item. They use data sets of contextually-tagged ratings ...
    • The DL-Lite Family and Relations 

      Artale, A; Calvanese, D; Kontchakov, R; Zakharyaschev, M (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence / AI Access Foundation, 2009)
      The recently introduced series of description logics under the common moniker `DL-Lite' has attracted attention of the description logic and semantic web communities due to the low computational complexity of inference, ...
    • Do feelings matter? On the correlation of affects and the self-assessed productivity in software engineering 

      Graziotin D; Wang X; Abrahamsson P (2014)
