Title: Searching in Sequences of Documents and in Biological Sequences
Location: 11:00 am, February 23, Thursday, ENGR 4201
Abstract: We consider the problem of searching in two domains where the ordering is important, namely biological sequence data, and data from live, time-stamped data collections (such as blogs). As the number and size of such data collections increase, the problem of efficiently indexing and searching such data becomes more important. We present novel approaches for subsequence matching and for keyword search and event identification in document sequences.
