Economic prescriptions and public responses to climate policy

Baranzini, Andrea ; Caliskan, Metin ; Carattini, Stefano

Public acceptability is one of the main barriers to the implementation of carbon taxes. Qualitative evidence based on a sample of individuals interviewed in Geneva, Switzerland, shows that the general public would not tackle climate change as economists suggest. The gap concerns not only the choice of climate policy’s instruments (i.e. pull versus push measures), but also its specific design in...

Using a question-answering approach in machine reading task of biomedical texts about the Alzheimer disease

Vishnyakova, Dina ; Gobeill, Julien ; Ruch, Patrick

In: Working Notes for CLEF 2013 Conference, Valencia, Spain, September 23-26, 2013., 2013, vol. 1179, p. 1-6

For the machine-reading task of biomedical texts about the Alz-heimer disease we have used a Question-Answering approach by adapting func-tionalities of Question-Answering (Q-A) engine EAGLi. We didn’t involve any other Natural Language Processing method. As a knowledge store we used the biggest resource of biomedical literature - MEDLINE. Our final results showed that the best run was without...

Instance-based learning for tweet categorization in CLEF REPLAB 2014

Gobeill, Julien ; Gaudinat, Arnaud ; Ruch, Patrick

In: Proceedings of Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum (CLEF), 2014, p. 1491-1499

BiTeM/SIBtex is a university research group with a strong background in Text Mining and Bibliomics, and a long tradition of participating in large evaluation campaigns. The CLEF RepLab 2014 Track was the occasion to integrate several local tools into a complete system for tweet monitoring and categorization based on instance-based learning. The algorithm we implemented was a k Nearest Neighbors....

Full-texts representations with medical subject headings, and co-citations network reranking strategies for TREC 2014 clinical decision support track

Gobeill, Julien ; Gaudinat, Arnaud ; Pasche, Emilie ; Ruch, Patrick

In TREC 2014 Clinical Decision Support Track, the task was to retrieve full-texts relevant for answering generic clinical questions about medical records. For this purpose, we investigated a large range of strategies in the five runs we official-ly submitted. Concerning Information Retrieval (IR), we tested two different indexing levels: documents or sections. Sec-tion indexing was clearly below...

Electronic processing of informed consents in a global pharmaceutical company environment

Gobeill, Julien ; Ruch, Patrick ; et al.

In: Studies in health technology and informatics, 2013, vol. 205, p. 995-999

We present an electronic capture tool to process informed consents, which are mandatory recorded when running a clinical trial. This tool aims at the extraction of information expressing the duration of the consent given by the patient to authorize the exploitation of biomarker-related information collected during clinical trials. The system integrates a language detection module (LDM) to route a...

Overview of the gene ontology task at BioCreative IV

Gobeill, Julien ; Ruch, Patrick ; et al.

In: Database : the journal of biogical database and curation, 2014, p. 14

Gene Ontology (GO) annotation is a common task among model organism databases (MODs) for capturing gene function data from journal articles. It is a time-consuming and labor-intensive task, and is thus often considered as one of the bottlenecks in literature curation. There is a growing need for semiautomated or fully automated GO curation techniques that will help database curators to rapidly...

Closing the loop : from paper to protein annotation using supervised Gene Ontology classification

Gobeill, Julien ; Pasche, Emilie ; Vishnyakova, Dina ; Ruch, Patrick

In: Database : the journal of biogical database and curation, 2014, p. 7

Gene function curation of the literature with Gene Ontology (GO) concepts is one particularly time-consuming task in genomics, and the help from bioinformatics is highly requested to keep up with the flow of publications. In 2004, the first BioCreative challenge already designed a task of automatic GO concepts assignment from a full text. At this time, results were judged far from reaching the...

Diversity and uniformity in the quest for Christian unity : a study of the relationship between the Maronite Church and the Holy See for a possible contribution to the ecumenical movement

Khalil Khalil, Dominga ; Norelli, Enrico (Dir.) ; Iwuamadi, Lawrence (Codir.)

Mémoire de master of advanced studies : Conseil œcuménique des Églises, 2014.

Christ prayed that the Church be one “so that the world may believe” (John 17:21). The background of this thesis therefore is the wish to contribute to the efforts being made to realize this prayer of Christ. Our main concern is to find possible ways to address the challenges of diversity and uniformity to move forward in the search of Christian unity. In this context, the study of the...

Linked open data literacy for librarians

Hügi, Jasmin ; Schneider, René

Linked Data has become an important issue, not only for the process of building the web of data, but also for the mutual knowledge transfer between libraries and the web of data. Based on a study concerning Linked Open Data applications in libraries and the qualifications of future librarians involved in the development of such applications, we built a one day training program for academic...
