Modern society is overwhelmed with ever-increasing amounts of information. Knowledge Engineering provides methods and applications for organization, analysis, management, and reuse of information.
The Knowledge Engineering Lab currently focuses on the following fundamental lines of research.
- Formalisms for the representation of knowledge.
- Algorithms for reasoning with knowledge.
- Algorithms for knowledge acquisition.
The Knowledge Engineering Lab pursues applied research along the following lines.
- Semantic Web
- Ontology-based systems
- Ontology modeling and engineering.
