Dr. Jeff Pan gave a seminar at iSOCO

Dr. Jeff Pan gave a seminar at iSOCO on 26th April, 2013. His talk is titled: Understanding and Exploiting Semantic Data.

Abstract: The talk will begin with some example to illustrate why and how ontology and linked data technologies can be useful for data integration. I will then present some recent results that are related to the Marie Curie K-Drive project, in particular on understanding and exploiting semantic data, including query generation, ontology authoring and streaming ontological reasoning.

Dr. Jeff Pan gave a seminar at UPM

Dr. Jeff Pan gave a seminar at the Department of Artefficial Intelligence at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). His talk is title: Approximate Reasoning for OWL: Why? How? And what next?

 

Abstract: The talk will begin with some example to illustrate why reasoning is needed for linked data and semantic web applications. I will then further explain why approximate reasoning is need and how to perform faithful approximate reasoning, i.e, approximate reasoning with some level of quality control, by making use of tractable sub-languages in OWL 2.  I will conclude the talk with discussions on some of our relevant recent work and future steps, including those in the distributed setting.

Dr. Panos Alexopoulos is in Aberdeen for his secondment

Dr. Panos Alexopoulos from iSOCO is now in Aberdeen for his secondment of 2 weeks, 1st April – 12th April.

During his secondment at University of Aberdeen, Panos will focus on WP4 and the establishment of the requirements for the intelligent user interface that is to be derived from this WP. Moreover, he will collaborate with Aberdeen researchers for the evaluation of the query generation system in the context of WP3 and he will participate in knowledge exchange activities between the University and iSOCO.
