On Tuesday next week, January 24, Marjan Alirezaie of Örebro University will give a talk in our series of Semantic Web seminars. The title of her talk is:
Recent Developments in Bridging the Semantic Gap Problem
Abstract: In this talk, I will present a summary of my PhD thesis which is about bridging the semantic gap between sensor data and ontological knowledge. The focus will be on the recent developments in heterogeneous knowledge integration as a solution for the semantic gap issue. I will also introduce the two research projects: Semantic Robot and E-care@home, with the goal of addressing the knowledge integration problem. In Semantic Robot, we are aiming to provide a semantic layer to a 3D topographic map and making the objects in the 3D map reasoning ready for different purposes such as querying and navigation. Likewise, in Ecare@home which is a Swedish interdisciplinary distributed research environment, our focus is on the development of methods that provide interpretation of the heterogeneous data coming from different types of sensors in conjunction with both medical and environmental knowledge in order to provide e-services for the elderly residing in their homes.
