On 26 Feb 2016, Veronica Villa from Expert System gave a seminar titled “COGITO technology: Building knowledge using semantic technologies” in Aberdeen.
In this seminar, she introduced the state-of-the-art work of COGITO on linguistic analysis, conceptualize structure knowledge, and applications i.e. semantic search, dialogue system, knowledge discovering, etc.
The audience included: Dr. Jeff Pan, Dr. Adam Wyner, and Jhonatan Garcia from University of Aberdeen, and Dr. Marco Monti, Dr. Yuting Zhao, Fernanda Perego, Alessandra Coletti, Emanuela Valle from IBM Italia, and Anna Cuccovillo, Eliana Bombieri from Expert System.
In February 2016 we welcome the secondment of 5 IBMers from IBM Italia to Aberdeen; they are Dr. Marco Monti, Fernanda Perego, Alessandra Coletti, Emanuela Valle, and Alessandro Faraotti.
During this secondment they will strengthen the cooperation between IBM Italia and the University of Aberdeen, on investigation of various applications leveraged by Semantic technologies and IBM Cognitive Computing solutions – IBM Watson, which is a technology platform that uses natural language processing and machine learning to reveal insights from large amounts of unstructured data.
Between 15-Feb-2016 to 26-Feb-2016, Alessandro Faraotti from IBM Italia will do his secondment in Aberdeen. He will investigate new semantic technologies for smart dialogue system, which is related to WP5 in the K-Drive project.
From 14 Feb 2016 Fernanda Perego from IBM Italia has come to the University of Aberdeen for her secondment. She is an IBM Client Technical Architect with long experience with clients’ project on IT Data Center Automation and Systems Management, Digital Transformation and omni-channel customer engagement.
During her secondment, she brings us the expertise on Analytics and Information Architecture (focus on User Experience and social data), and the IBM Cognitive Computing solutions on Watson.
Starting from 1 Feb 2016, we welcomed the new secondees from the Expert System: Veronica Villa, Anna Cuccovillo, and Eliana Bombieri for their secondment in the University of Aberdeen, and their expertise on Computational Linguistics. They will contribute to the WP9 in the K-Drive project.
