About the Project
The project has started on July 1st, 2004 and is planned for 4.5 years.
It is oriented toward semantic web topics, namely: inteligent models, algorithms, methods and tools.
The team of researchers is formally divided into 8 working groups, each working in a specific area.
A part of Brno project results, namely Vit Novacek's part, can be found at OLE Ontology Acquisition Project site.
The project is centered around key researchers and includes Ph. D. students.
On the project colaborate people from the following 3 institutions:
The project aims at integration of progresive theoretical disciplines of Computer Science with their practical applications.
Its goal is to examine and develop theoretical backgrounds of the semantic web, mainly from the point of view of modern AI methods and methods of computing by nature, as e.i. artificial neural nets, evolutionary algorithms, datamining, special (e.i. description) logics, etc., and to apply and verify selected methods of intelligent data and knowledge processing in that field.
The results of the project are expected to be mainly:
- theoretical treatises, published in international journals and presented at international conferences
- new algorithms for knowledge extraction from data, based on neural, cognitive, fuzzy and evolutionary approaches
- prototypical implementations of these algorithms within a multiagent systems.
The project is founded by the Program of the Information Socienty (of the Thematic Program II of the National Research Program of the Czech Republic).
We thank the government of the Czech Republic for sponsoring this project.
