Mariya Quibtya Internship Presentation

I am pursuing B.Tech from The LNM IIT, Jaipur in Computer Science and Engineering Branch. I did a research internship for 4 months at the Kno.e.sis Research Lab, Wright State University under the supervision of Dr. Amit P. Sheth. I worked on “Entity Identification and Extraction from the Tweets Specific to a Particular Event” under the mentorship of two PhD students Ms. Lu Chen and Mr. Hemant Purohit. It included research in the Web Semantics area that gave me hands on experience working with various web technologies and enabled me to develop an application to automatically extract the entity mentions from an unstructured corpus and enhance its performance using the knowledge-bases. The time that I spent there helped me gain a deeper insight into the field of research and broaden my perspective. This program provided me an environment where I could explore and investigate new facts, getting to know the efforts and commitment required to accomplish my goals.
