AKSW Colloquium, 14.03.2016, Question Answering on RDF Data Cubes + Matthias Wauer Introduction

On the 14th of March at 3 PM, Konrad Höffner will present a paper on AKSW’s CubeQA project titled “Question Answering on RDF Data Cubes“.


Semantic Question Answering systems provide intuitive access to Linked Data by transforming natural language queries into formal queries on RDF knowledge bases. We design and implement the first Semantic Question Answering system that can process RDF Data Cubes and create a benchmark to evaluate it. The evaluation shows the feasibility of the approach, but also highlights challenges.

Later on, at 3:30 PM, our new colleague Matthias Wauer will give a short overview of two aspects of his research at Unister in the GeoKnow project, geospatial motives and bitset index extensions for Virtuoso (presented at SEMANTICS 2015 and KDIR 2015, respectively).
