Knowledge Extraction from Community Based Multimodal Repositories

COMET project 2009

In social tagging environments, users contribute content (news, blogs, pictures, videos, scientific articles etc.) and tag content contributed by themselves or others. The resulting data structures, connecting users, tags and content, are called foksonomies. The idea of the Semantic Web is to describe web content in an unambiguous and machine-readable…

User Context Detection and Attention Metadata Extraction

COMET project 2009

The term “user context” is used to describe a user’s computational environment (e.g. current task, recently opened documents, work environment). User contexts are formally described with ‘user context models’ and stored in ‘user profiles’. User context may be utilized in context based retrieval, context-aware applications or location-based services. Results from…

To achieve this, the existing Knowledge Discovery…

Semantic-based Cross-Lingual Relationship Discovery in Media Repositories

COMET project 2009

In 2009, design studies for visualizations to be integrated with the Wissenswelten module of the APA online presence have been developed and evaluated. An advanced visualization of the relationships between political actors has been developed and integrated in the APA-Labs platform. In addition, several modules for the future blog analysis…

Visual Navigation and Manipulation of Process Knowledge Repositories

COMET project 2009

Our collaboration with AutomationX involves the development of various components for the visualization and manipulation of process-knowledge-spaces that are applied in AX Indigo 5. The problem-space allows for the exploration of different aspects of visualization, e.g. the simultaneous processing and rendering of thousands of objects within the process-knowledge-space or the…

Extraction and Analysis of Semantic Patterns in Knowledge Repositories

COMET project 2009

The goal of the project is the development of an integrated, flexible system for supporting searching and analysis of heterogeneous, semantically integrated patent data bases. The sys-tem should simplify and accelerate information seeking processes and offer both automatic and visually supported means of analysis. In this way a considerable improvement…

Cross-Modal Visual Analysis

COMET project 2009

In the course of the project machine learning methods should be implemented and analysed to classify textual data. At the ICG appropriate classification algorithms have been developed which should be applied to the textual domain to test the performance of cross-domain classification. The goal was to analyse the applicability of…
