Main Projects

Commonsense Knowledge Automatic Harvesting

Commonsense knowledge about object properties, human behavior, and general concepts is crucial for robust AI applications. However, the automatic acquisition of this knowledge is challenging because of sparseness and bias in online sources. (Learn More)

Discovery of Complex Schemas for RDF Knowledge Bases – Query Rewriting

Web services provide limited access methods to their internal data. In this project, we investigate new methods to combine these access methods efficiently to acquire new information not originally provided by the data provider. (Learn More)
