Logics for Data and Knowledge Representation Projects and thesis introduction
Projects People per group: 1 or max 2 (first come first served) Amount of work: 3-4 weeks of individual work full time (each person) Supervisors: PhD and postdocs (3-4 quick meetings to discuss the problem, intermediate checks, index of the report) Content of the report: Formal specification of the problem + description of the work done + example of usage with Protégé Length of the report: max 15 pages + appendixes, data files, code Delivery time: at least 1 week before the exam Exam grading: midterm (max 30/32) + project (max 30/35) Thesis: 6 months full time
Personal Events in the LOD Cloud Reference person: P. Andrews, J. Paniagua Goal: Extension of existing ontologies for sharing event-media representations Extended schema Examples of events-media links Requirements: OWL/RDF knowledge, LOD principles understanding Notes: Possible extension to a Master project on Event/Media annotation in Narratives
Development of an OWL Parser and Writer Reference person: Feroz Farazi Description: Web Semantic Web HTML and XML RDF and OWL UK is a knowledge base developed at UNITN Goal: To develop an OWL Parser and writer To retrieve knowledge from the OWL ontologies for the enrichment of the UK To publish UK as a set of ontologies in OWL Requirements: The candidate must have a good knowledge of Java programming language. The knowledge of OWL and RDF is a plus.
Entity store on top of a triple store Reference person: Uladzimir Kharkevich [http://www.ulakha.com/] Goal: Design and implement an entity-centric storage system on top of triple-centric standards and implementations. Requirements: knowledge of semantic web technologies: RDF(S): http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-primer/ OWL: http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-primer/ SPARQL: http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/ + read about schema.org and HQL(hibernate query language) Notes: The goal of this project is to design an entity store on top of a triple store The goal of master thesis will be to implement the designed architecture
User evaluation of the entity search Reference person: M. Menendez Goal: Perform a user evaluation of the search functionality in an existing digital library for academics and researchers: Provide a formal specification of entity search Obtain qualitative and quantitive data from real users Analysis and interpretation of the collected data. Requirements: Attendance to the HCI course by Antonella de Angeli. Notes: The project will be completed with a Master project on User evaluation of the entity search.
Domain development Reference person: Biswanath Dutta / Anand Kumar Pandey Goal: Creating faceted classification of the domain following DERA methodology Available domains: Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Hockey,… Linking domain classification to Linguistic part of Universal Knowledge Core (UKC) Requirements: knowledge of ontology development (not mandatory) Note: The work has to be described in a final report providing: the formal specification of the domain; the synthesis of the work done; the faceted classification in tabular format; and list of words, concepts, relations deleted and the new senses and relations created in UKC
