    1993.04The information on WWW continues increasing explosively. It is an important problem how we utilize them in an information society now and in the future. General search engines, such as Yahoo! and Google, are expected as keys to this problem. But there is the problem with respect to the quality of a reference result. To provide information with high quality, many companies and organizations have their own search facility on their sites, which we call search sites. In this research and development, we realized a system which integrates these search sites suitable for the users' purpose. The system consists of the feature extraction system, the data management system of search sites, and the clustering system. Users can choose search sites according to the keywords which are provided by the system, or can traverse the directory for selecting the search sites. The directory mapping of the search sites are realized by comparing the feature vector of the sites and that of the node in the directory. Another core technology of the system is automatic wrapper generation. This is based on the algorithm of extraction of tag patterns from HTML files. This system can be a basis for efficient communication of high quality information, from the provider side to the consumer side. We expect that this system gives the big social impact as a next-generation search engine. The system and related documents are available at http://daisen.cc.kyushu-u.ac.jp..

for the first time can be a daunting task. Participants often use
several different strategies, of which an active strategy involves
getting to know their communication partners through asking other
people. However this situation might not always be possible. To
support situation when this strategies isn’t available, we propose a
method to extract keywords from a user’s comments on SNS sites and
use these to represent their interests and activities. Keywords are
visualized as a mind map for use as a communication tool when engaging
in interpersonal communications. The use of this method is
de monstrated and evaluated in three examples that were created from
real world data collected from Twitter.

and practicing foreign languages, were analyzed and found to contain
similar rates of errors for most error categories reported in previous
research. These similarly rated errors were then processed using an
algorithm to determine corrections suggested by a native
speaker. Subject matter experts then evaluated the processed sentences
to determine the quality in relation to use in tests or exams for
language learners. The method describes the automatic generation of
multiple choice and fill-in-the-blanks quizzes using the writings of
language learners on public web based learning sites, in order to
support learner reflection on corrections and practicing past errors
to overcome problems.

research project . However, many students do not know the procedur es
of performing a literature review . In this paper, based on the p
rofessional experiences and opinions of expert researchers , we
describe a n SNS - based literature review system to help students
conduct research survey s . This system includes two search engi nes,
one is a n article search engine , which can help students conduct
research survey s , and the other is a logging search engine , which
allows students to learn from each other via their logs and share
experience with other students . User models of the sys tem as well
as its functions are presented..

their writing errors in order to overcome weaknesses. Each language
learner has their own unique writing error characteristics and
therefore has different learning needs. The present paper applies SVM
machine learning to the writings of English language learners on the
language learning SNS website Lang-8 that have been manually
classified into 15 error categories to determine the errors in a
sentence. Feature selection was used to improve the performance of
the resulting classifier model.

information extraction from deep web page has gained more and more
attention. However, the HTML structure of web page has become more
complicated, making it difficult to recognize target content by only
analyzing the HTML source code. In this paper, we propose a method to
extract the informative blocks from a deep web using the layout
feature. We consider the visual rectangular region of an HTML element
as a visual block in web page. We transform the elements' layout of a
visual block into a layout tree. By calculating the similarity of
layout trees, we cluster the visual blocks that have similar layout
feature. Finally, the cluster which has the largest area is extracted
as the informative block cluster. The experiment results show that
this method is optimal when the threshold of layout tree similarity is
0.4..

becoming an important part of learning. In this paper, based on the
"Learning by Searching theory, a learning environment is developed,
which includes a search engine to assist students in recognizing the
progression of trends and keyword transitions for specific domains. To
efficiently support research trend surveys, an automatic data
accumulation and classification approach is proposed to construct the
database excerpts instead of manual keyword registration or any other
heuristic preprocesses. With an associative search module, the search
engine dynamically searches for relevant words that are frequently
used in the targeted academic field, and provides learners with
effective visualizations to understand the trend transitions. An
experiment has been conducted on a college information management
course to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach. The
experiment results show that the students who learned with the new
approach had significantly better learning performance in terms of
recognizing the trend transitions of the targeted issues than those
who learned with conventional search engines..

16. Kazumasa Goda, Sachio Hirokawa, Tsunenori Mine, Automated Evaluation of Student Comments on Their Learning Behavior, Proc. ICWL2013, 131-140, 2013.10, Learning comments are valuable source of interpreting student status
of understanding. The PCN method introduced in [Gouda2011] analyzes
the attitude of a student from a view point of time series. Each
sentence of a comment are manually classified as one of P,C,N or O
sentence. P(previous) indicates the learning activity before the
classtime, C(current) represents the understanding and achievement
during the classtime, and N(next) means the learning activity plan
until next class. The present paper applies SVM(Support Vecotor
Machine) to predict the category to which given sentence
belongs. Empirical evaluation using 4,086 sentences was conducted. By
selecting feature words of each category, the prediction performance
was satisfactory with F-measures 0.8203, 0.7352, 0.8416 and 0.8612 for
P,C,N and O respectively.

17. Kazumasa Goda, Sachio Hirokawa, Tsunenori Mine, Correlation of Grade Prediction Performance and Validity of Self-Evaluation Comments, Prof. ACM SIGITE2013, 35-42, 2013.10, To grasp a student's lesson attitude and learning situation and to
give a feed back for each student are educational foundations. Goda
et.al. 2011 proposed the PCN method to presume a learning situation
from a comment freely written by students. The PCN method categorizes
comments into three items of P(previous), C(current) and N(next).
Item P is learning activities for preparation of a lesson. Item C is
understanding of the lesson and learning attitudes to the lesson. Item
N is the learning plan and goal by the next lesson. They pointed out a
correlation between the student's final results and the validity of a
descriptive content of item C.
A problem left in Goda et. al.2011 is the badness of performance in prediction
for upper grade students. One of the reason is the
difficulty in assessmenting the validity by human. Another reason is
the diversity of quality of freely written comments. Some students
wrote their comments that have nothing to do with their understanding
or learning attitudes in item C.
The present paper applied multiple regression analysis to calculate
the PCN scores that determine the validity level with respect to each
viewpoint. The students who wrote comments with high PCN score are
considered as those who describe their learning attitude appropriately.
The present paper applied a machine learning method SVM (support
vector machine) to student comments for predicting the students' final
result in five grades of S,A,B,C and D. It is confirmed that the
prediction performance of student grade is high for the students with
high PCN scores.

18. CHENGJIU YIN, Brendan Flanagan, Sachio Hirokawa, Yoshiyuki Tabata, Build A Search Engine To Support Doing Research Surveys On SNS, Proc. LTLE2013, 2013.09, It is very important for any academic researches to do research
surveys. In this paper, we proposed an SNS based search engine to
support doing research surveys, called SNSearch. Our SNSearch system
not only supports analysis of research trends, but also offers
learners opportunities to reflect on their search behaviors. By
browsing the experts’ survey history, students can learn search
skills..

personal experiences of where and how they have gone, what they
have done and what they thought. Such individual experiences
are helpful in many cases compared to the general and official
information about the tourist resort by tourist agents. However,
it is not easy to choose related articles and to extract still
more nearly required information from these unsorted blog
articles. This paper proposes a technique of feature extraction
by dependency analysis of verbs and objects in those sentences
that describe tourist’s behavior. This paper applied the method
to 70,352 blog articles on Kyushu area and reports some analysis
on "where and what did they eat" as case studies.

years. However, most research has been based on some pre-defined
heuristics or visual cues which may be not suitable for large-scale
page segmentation. In this paper, we proposed two parameters: seam
degree and content similarity, to indicate the coherent degree of a
page block. Instead of analyzing pre-defined heuristics or visual
cues, our method utilizes the visual and content features to determine
whether a page block should be divided into smaller blocks. We also
proposed a principled page segmentation method using these two
parameters. An experiment was conducted to determine the relationship
between the two parameters and the number of segment results. The
empirical results also show that our segmentation method can
effectively segment a page into different semantic parts.

the characteristics of learners and then provide intelligent and
informed guidance in response. The authors of this paper have a
long-term research goal to provide language learners with the ability
to determine and improving their weaknesses. However, to achieve this
goal a sizable amount of manually classified data is required. The
task is both time consuming and labor intensive. In this paper a
system was built to help intelligently classify the errors in an
English learner’s writings into categories (Kroll 1990, Weltig
2004). Using a randomly selected manually classified sample as
training data, it was determined that there is a positive correlation
between the number of samples for each error category and the
effectiveness of the model created by applying SVM machine learning to
the writings of language learners on the Lang-8 website. It is
intended that the classification results will be used to accelerate
the manually process classification and increase the amount of
training data available for use..

tool. Finding information has become an easy exercise by just typing a
few keywords into a search engine text-box. However, some people may
not use a search engine effectively. Students may not know how to
choose proper keywords. They may have difficulty in selecting the
relevant information from millions of search results. In this paper,
we propose a search engine system which shares search queries and
browsing history among students. We call the search queries and
browsing history “community search logs”. This system analyzes the
community search logs, and shares students’ knowledge and experience
to each other. Our purpose is with help students, especially those who
are not good at searching, to improve their searching efficiency..

36. Toshihiko Sakai, Sachio Hirokawa, Feature Words that Classify Problem Sentence in Scientific Article, Proc. iiWAS2012, 360-367, 2012.12, Literature review requires understanding the contents from
several view points, such as the problem and the method
that the articles describe. Search from these viewpoints will
improve the e?ciency of survey, if particular segments of
articles were extracted, indexed and can be used as auxiliary
query. This paper focuses on sentences that describe the
problem in an abstract and the feature sets that classify such
problem sentences. Classi?cation performance are evaluated
by 10-fold cross-validation for six candidate sets of feature
words. It turned out that the set of all words gains the best
performance if 90% of the data are used as training data.
However, the set of a small number of words with positive
scores outperforms other feature sets, if the training data is
only 10%. In such a realistic situation, the feature words are
effective in improving classification performance..

another person to correct it for them so they can know their
mistakes. However, a problem for learners' is how to reflect on the
correction of their problems and then master the mistake. In this
paper, by analyzing the entries of Lang-8, which is a SNS site for
learning and practicing foreign languages, we found the correspondence
between original entries and the corrections. Based on this finding, a
system was developed which can generate fill-in-the-blanks quizzes
according to different situations, in order to support learner's
reflection on correction and practicing so the mistake is no longer a
problem.

The 12th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction Part IV, LNCS 4553, pp.989-998, 2007, 2007.07, The multiple viewed search engine presented here retrieves documents of an indicated search area and displays a matrix of the distribution of the clustering from two aspects of the retrieval result. The search engine provides a visual and semantic bird's-eye view of the entire retrieval result. In addition, the characteristic words of each cluster are displayed in the matrix, and supports narrowing of the search. Furthermore, it is possible to immediately change the analysis criteria or the number of clusters and to use a zooming function. Thus, various retrieval conditions for a query can be attempted immediately and continuously. As a case study, this paper performs several analyses on the electronic journal Zoological Science using a multiple viewed search engine..
