MANAGING LARGE DATASETS USING ONTOLOGY ON CLOUD

In this research, we proposed an organization’s Global Ontology that can capture the concepts of complexity and use it as a basis for data integration processes suitable for efficient correlative decision-making. We will develop an incremental approach to extend the ontology with relevant external knowledge bases by clustering and annotating the external data to concepts and properties within the ontology.The originality of this research lies in the creation of the big data integration ‘road-map’ in the form of an organization’s Global Ontology that contains references to concepts and properties from external sources relevant to the organization. This road-map will enable accurate integration of the datasets for decision-making as it will serve as a meta-data for the connectivity of the integration process. This approach will enable the organization to have an overall view of data connectivity within and outside the organizations, and to enable the data scientists to harvest interconnected information for analytics purposes.

A FRAMEWORK TO ENGAGE SOCIAL MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSE IN MALAYSIA IPTA

There has been wide academic and research interest in the application of social media modalities, as instructional tools, in contemporary educational settings. Although research on this topic has grown exponentially in recent years, very little is known about the breadth of research regarding the engagement of social networking technologies in finding relevant information in the scholarly literature. This research attempts to obtain students’ perceptions on how social network technologies engagement influences the process of finding relevant information for their academic purpose. In this study, we will conduct a preliminary survey of a group of Malaysian university student to gather initial findings. The scientific significant of this research is to engage social media in social informatics society for academic purposes.

USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO PROMOTE GREEN TECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE FOR LIBRARY SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES 

Currently there is limited differentiation in how social media channels are used to promote green technology. Similar objectives and tactics apply across all social media tools, but it is envisaged that this will change rapidly with strategies becoming increasingly channel-specific.   The aim of the research is to implement social media to promote library green initiative. Social media can provide many useful benefits to the individual or organization growing and evolving its sustainable green identity and actions. In a positive, supportive spirit of sustainability and green initiatives, the following ideas are offered to ensure that the use of social media is increasingly successful and useful, in that, it contributes to strategic innovation and management including planning, implementation, and control (William et al.). Social media can be used for green companies by giving the value to the consumer in the comparison of products and services (Matthews, 2011d).

RESHAPING LIBRARY USER EXPERIENCE USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO ENHANCE TEACHING AND LEARNING

Currently there is limited differentiation in how social media channels are used. Similar objectives and tactics apply across all social media tools, but it is envisaged that this will change rapidly with strategies becoming increasingly channel-specific. Many libraries are already experimenting with different social media services like Twitter or Facebook to interact and connect with their patrons, yet there are still a number of questions that come up as this is still fairly new territory[5].It is important to understand how social media data can be harvested to improve library productivity for their users and industrial connection. The main opportunities associated with libraries using social media are seen to be related to its low cost. At the same time, its ability to take the library service to users in their preferred spaces, the opportunity to build a sense of community between the library and its users, to support co-development of collections and help keep librarians updated on industry news and initiatives. Challenges are the considerable time that is required to maintain an active social media presence, the pressure to respond instantly to service queries, the variability of skills across library staff for using social media effectively, striking the right tone between professional and personal, coordinating activities across the institution to avoid duplication, maintaining visibility for the library brand and copyright issues relating to hosting library resources on social media sites.
