The Oxford handbook of causal reasoning
A few years ago, Weisberg’s Willful ignorance [1] distinguished two facets of uncertainty: doubt, which is the focus of modern statistics, and ambiguity about the causal structure of the world, which researchers in many domains have not addressed systematically. Statistics formalizes the manipulation of the data obtained from experiments... more
I would not close, however, on a gloomy note, for ours is a century of scientific conquest and scientific triumph. If scientific discovery has not been an unalloyed... more

Multimedia big data analytics: a survey: ACM Computing Surveys

Big data continues to grow exponentially. One source of that growth--multimedia data--has not received comprehensive study. The authors correct this deficit by presenting the results of a broad multidimensional survey of the literature related to multimedia... more

PERSIST: Journal of Grid Computing

NoSQL application data stores often combine on-premise and public cloud resources. As a consequence, they may deal with heterogeneous technologies, flexible but less structured storage architectures, and dynamic changes. In this paper, the authors propose PERSIST... more
