The following subgroups belong to AKSW

Adaptive Information and Knowledge Engineering

The AIKE group focuses on the application of Semantic Web technologies to support adaptive Information and Knowledge Engineering. The research goal is to use domain specific vocabularies for modelling of application software and compiling software components. To achieve results in this fields, research activities of the AIKE group are in the scope of agile and collaborative requirements engineering, knowledge extraction from existing databases, knowledge engineering, and knowledge alignment to software component interfaces. The group also provides established open source tools and use cases in the field of digital humanities. Read more about Adaptive Information and Knowledge Engineering

Emergent Semantics

Research in Emergent Semantics revolves around supporting semantic collaboration scenarios in an adaptive way. This work includes especially research on engineering and adoption of semantic collaboration software, semantic collaboration protocols as well as research on distributed / federated semantic social networks. To bootstrap semantic collaboration and the semantic web in general, the Emergent Semantics group also investigates basic semantic technologies and semantic web infrastructures. Read more about Emergent Semantics

Machine Learning and Ontology Engineering

The MOLE group focuses on combining Semantic Web and supervised Machine Learning technologies. The goal is to improve both quality and quantity of available knowledge by extracting, analysing, enriching and linking existing data. To make obtained results readily available for use in other applications, the group also provides several established open source tools, frameworks and demonstrators.

Semantic Abstraction

SIMBA's focus lies on knowledge extraction, integration, linking and consumption for porting the document-oriented web to the Data Web. For this purpose, SIMBA develops novel and scalable approaches for RDF/OWL extraction, link discovery and graph analysis. In addition, SIMBA provides tools and frameworks that implement these approaches and allow for their swift integration into industry projects. Read more about Semantic Abstraction

LIMES Version 0.6 RC4 ( 2014-10-07T00:49:53+02:00 by Dr. Axel-C. Ngonga Ngomo)

2014-10-07T00:49:53+02:00 by Dr. Axel-C. Ngonga Ngomo

It has been a while but that moment has arrived again. We are happy to announce a new release of the LIMES framework. This version implements novel geo-spatial measures (e.g., geographic mean) as well as string similarity measures (jaro, jaro-winkler, etc.). Moreover, we fixed some minor bugs (thanks for the bug reports). Read more about "LIMES Version 0.6 RC4"
