    • The Limited Effectiveness of Neural Networks for Simple Question Answering on Knowledge Graphs 

      Mohammed, Salman (University of Waterloo, 2017-12-08)
      Simple factoid question answering (QA) is a task, where the questions can be answered by looking up a single fact in the knowledge base (KB). However, this QA task is difficult, since retrieving a single supporting fact ...
    • A TMT-labeled Spectral Library for Peptide Sequencing 

      Shen, Jianqiao (University of Waterloo, 2017-12-07)
      Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) is widely used nowadays for bioinformaticians to identify peptides and proteins. Three major peptide identification approaches and tools have been developed over the past two decades: ...
