This Colloquium will be presented by Edgard Marx and Diego Moussallem.
Edgard Marx will present the progress of his PhD titled “An Open Question Answering Framework”. Billions of facts pertaining to a multitude of domains are now available on the Web as RDF data. However, accessing this data is still a difficult endeavour for non-expert users. The goal of this PhD is the development of a framework for Question Answering over Linked Data.
Diego Moussallem will present a survey about machine translation using semantic web technologies as well as his future works. Although Machine Translation systems have achieved significant results int the last decade, there are still space for improvement. One of the main challenges in Machine Translation is the ambiguity. However, the use of semantic web technologies can overcome this obstacles.
