Semantic Web

Research fields

Web Applications for the Future Internet

Web has revolutionized our society, creating new challenges and opportunities by making information available to wider sectors of the population than ever before.

Activities

Social and Semantic Web

The information accessed by search engines represents the tip of the iceberg if compared to the whole amount of information stored in all the current relational databases (deep Web). The intrinsic idea of the Semantic Web considers the Web as being an access point to these databases.

Projects

EU Project - Collaborative information, Acquisition, Processing, Exploitation and Reporting for the prevention of organised crime (CAPER)

Organised crime use information technology systems to communicate, work or expand their influence. Current tools for the fight against organised crime have shown their limits and reflect the need to develop a scalable tool to track them more efficiently.

CAPER ’s objective is to build a common collaborative and information sharing platform for the detection and prevention of organised crime exploiting Open Source Intelligence. State intelligence agencies are becoming more inclined to use Open Source Intelligence (OSI), and particularly tools typically associated with the Social or Semantic Web.

The analysis modules built in the CAPERproject will also give new value to existing intelligence through image, video, speech and biometric analysis.

EU Project - Knowledge Yielding Ontologies for Transition-based Organization (KYOTO)

Kyoto

The goal of KYOTO Project is a system that allows people in communities to define the meaning of their words and terms in a shared Wiki platform so that it becomes anchored across languages and cultures but also so that a computer can use this knowledge to detect knowledge and facts in text.

Linked Data DoGi

The legal domain is an extremely significant use case for Linked Open Data (LOD) applications due to the great value of legal information assets at social and economic level.
