New Information Technology Findings from Y.J. Joung and Colleagues Discussed

June 23, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week -- Investigators publish new report on Information Technology. According to news originating from Taipei, Taiwan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "We present a family of character-based index schemes for wildcard search in peer-to-peer networks. The supported query format allows the two wildcard matching operators '?' and '*' to be used arbitrarily."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "To our knowledge, no distributed solution for this general form of wildcard search has been proposed thus far. Moreover, the schemes can achieve balanced loads, avoid hot-spots and single points of failure, reduce storage and maintenance costs, and offer ranking mechanisms for matching objects."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The main focus is on a thorough comparative study on these index schemes from the following perspectives: query expressiveness, encoding effectiveness, load balance, and search performance."
