A general, web-based Information Extraction System using GATE and the Stanford Parser

Bachelor's thesis Paul Laufer 2012

This work presents the design and scientific background of a web-based information extraction system using the open-source GATE-library 1 (General Architecture for text engineering) [Ham12]. The application provides an extendable architecture for server-based high-level information extraction. Textual resources are annotated using a set of tools according to both, their semantic…

Usage-based Calculation of Knowledge Maturing Indicators for Digital Resources in a Personal and Organizational Learning and Maturing Environment

Master's thesis Dieter Theiler 2012

Research in the field of ‘Knowledge Maturing’ focuses on improving knowledge construction processes within organizations. As guidance of knowledge workers plays an important role when it comes to developing knowledge, tools are sought to foster ‘Knowledge Maturing’-related activities.

Visualisierung heterogener Datensätze in strukturierten Informationsressourcen

Master's thesis Belgin Mutlu 2012

The concept of the semantic web provides a pragmatic way for the structured informa- tion retrieval based on relationships within a content of the linked data.

Linked Data provides a framework for the generation, publishing and sharing of information by use of semantic technologies. The Linking Open Data initiative plays a vital role in the realization of the Semantic Web at a global scale by publishing and interlinking diverse data sources on the Web. The access…

Building Scalable and Smart Multimedia Applications on the Semantic Web

Dissertation Michael Hausenblas 2008

The Semantic Web has become reality over the past couple of years. While certain practical Topics-such as interoperability, etc.-have at least partially been addressed, scalability and expressivity issues regarding the utilisation of multimedia metadata on the Semantic Web are still widely neglected. However, existing Web (2.0) applications handling millions of…

Assoziative Suche für das Semantic Web - Ein netzbasierter Suchansatz unter Berücksichtigung semantischer und inhaltsbasierter Ähnlichkeiten

Dissertation Peter Scheir 2008

While in the current Web information is largely gathered by humans, the Semantic Web aims at having this task performed by computer programs. To achieve this goal information on the Web is enriched with machine-interpretable data that allows for identifying the meaning (semantics) of information on the Web. Approaches to…

Metadaten im Kontext Wissenserschließung

Dissertation Mathias Lux 2006

Metadata is a broad term ranging from simple attribute structures describing data to huge and complex ontologies trying to formalize the knowledge about a resource. In knowledge discovery the extracted knowledge has to be codified and used for retrieval and inference. One major aspect is the comparison of knowledge and…
