AKSW Colloquium “Knowledge Extraction and Presentation” on Monday, July 28, 3.00 p.m. in Room P702

Knowledge Extraction and Presentation

On Monday, July 28,  in room P702 at 3.00 p.m., Edgard Marx proposes a question answering system. He has a computer science background (BSc. and MSc. in Computer Science/PUC-Rio) and is a member of AKSW (Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web). Edgard has been engaging in Semantic Web technology research since  2010 and is mainly working on evangelization and developing of conversion and mapping tools.

Abstract

The use of Semantic Web technologies led to an increasing number of structured data published on the Web.
Despite the advances on question answering systems retrieving and presenting the desired information from RDF structured sources is still substantial challenging.
In this talk we will present our proposal and working draft to address this challenges.

SWeeT Web of Heritage

On Wednesday, July 2, at 1.30 p.m. in room P702, T B Dinesh from Janastu, a non-profit organisation providing free open source software, will present the SWeeT Web of Heritage.

Dinesh has a computer science background (Univ Iowa and CWI, NL) and is a founder member of Janastu and International Institute of Art Culture and Democracy in Bangalore, India. Janastu engages in technology research and support for other non-profit, issue based, organizations. IIACD engages in digital humanities, living heritage and community health. We network with pastoral communities developing frameworks for community-managed knowledge, supporting AIDS advocacy programs, post-tsunami rehabilitation, biodiversity and environmental groups, craft communities and open source support for non-profit organizations.

Abstract

Our journey into SWeeTs (“Semantic Web tweeTs”) started with the work on the Re-narration Web which attempts to bridge the gap in web accessibility discourses in addressing the needs of non-literate web users. Heritage Knowledge Bank is an application of this, that we will also discuss, that is being developed for the Indian Digital Heritage project.
