AKSW Colloquium ?Knowledge Extraction and Presentation? on Monday, July 28, 3.00 p.m. in Room P702

Knowledge Extraction and Presentation

On Monday, July 28,  in room P702 at 3.00 p.m., Edgard Marx proposes a question answering system. He has a computer science background (BSc. and MSc. in Computer Science/PUC-Rio) and is a member of AKSW (Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web). Edgard has been engaging in Semantic Web technology research since  2010 and is mainly working on evangelization and developing of conversion and mapping tools.

Abstract

The use of Semantic Web technologies led to an increasing number of structured data published on the Web.
Despite the advances on question answering systems retrieving and presenting the desired information from RDF structured sources is still substantial challenging.
In this talk we will present our proposal and working draft to address this challenges.

About the AKSW Colloquium

This event is part of a series of events about Semantic Web technology. Please see http://wiki.aksw.org/Colloquium for further information about previous and future events. As always, Bachelor and Master students are able to get points for attendance and there is complimentary coffee and cake after the session.

[CfP] Semantic Web Journal: Special Issue on Question Answering over Linked Data
Dear all, The Semantic Web Journal is launching a special issue on Question Answering over Linked Data, soliciting original papers that * address the challenges involved in question answering over linked data, * present resources and tools to support question answering over linked data, or * describe question answering systems and applications. Submission deadline is November 30th, 2014. For more detailed information please visit: http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/blog/call-papers-special-issue-question-answering-over-linked-data With kind regards, Axel Ngonga and Christina Unger

New Version of FOX
Dear all, We are very pleased to announce a new version of FOX [1]. Several improvements have been carried out: (1) We have fixed minor issues in the code. In addition, we have updated several libraries. (2) As a result, the FOX output parameters have changed minimally. An exact specification of the parameters with examples is available at the demo page. [2] (3) Moreover, we now make bindings available for Java[3] and Python[4] to use FOX?s web service within your application. Enjoy and cheers, The FOX team [1] https://github.com/AKSW/FOX/releases/tag/v2.2.0 [2] http://fox.aksw.org [3] https://github.com/renespeck/fox-java [4] https://github.com/earthquakesan/fox-py

This year's SEMANTiCS Conference is being held in Leipzig


International Conference on Semantic Systems, taking place in September, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2014


Already for the tenth time, SEMANTiCS Conferenz will be the hot spot of the ‘Semantic Web World’: While in prior years the venue for the event has been Graz or Vienna, this time Leipzig will host SEMANTiCS from September 1–5.


The conference which has attracted more than 250 people every year adresses interests and matters of users from industry and public administrations just as much as topics being focused by developers, researchers and consultants. According to the motto ‘Transfer / Engineering / Community’ numerous talks and round tables will highlight from a number of perspectives how applications based on linked data or text mining have been implemented or will be generated in the future for branches like pharma, media or automotive industry.


The event offers space for practitioners and vendors to talk about state-of-the-art technologies on the ‘market place’, whilst subject matter experts discuss about innovative methodologies, projects and their approaches in the course of domain- and theme-specific sessions. Presentations and scientific papers can be submitted under http://www.semantics.cc/open-calls/.


When: September 4–5, 2014 – SEMANTiCS Conference / co-located events from September 1, 2014
Where: Leipziger Kubus – Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, Permoserstrasse 15, 04318 Leipzig, Germany (map view)
What: 10th International Conference on Semantic Systems
Who: University Leipzig | Institut for Applied Informatics e. V. & Semantic Web Company GmbH


JPEG 9 with lossless JPEG compression immediately available

The Independent JPEG Group (IJG) at the Leipzig Institute for Applied Informatics has released the new version of the software library „libjpeg“. This software library is the basis for the processing of images in the ubiquitous JPEG format and is used worldwide in a countless number of applications of software vendors and in the photographic industry.

It is available under a fee-free license with open source code. After 15 years of continuous development, the upgrade to the new version 9 enables for the first time an effective lossless image compression mode and thus offers end users and industrial adopters a high added value. The Code is ready for download at the IJG Development Site.

The Big Clean

The Big Clean is a free, 1-day conference that addresses the challenges associated with reuse of public sector data. The event rises to the occasion of teaching the members of public how to recycle public data and reuse it in the pursuit of their own goals, ranging from the use of data to power applications, drive societal changes and provide grounds for a data-driven journalism. The Big Clean is focused on three principal topics:


  • Screen-scraping: the skill of distilling data out of web pages and other poorly structured sources
  • Data refining: the techniques of transforming raw data into usable data
  • Data-driven journalism: the craft of telling stories with data

The event is jointly organized by the National Technical Libraryand members of the LOD2 project.
