Conférence Invitée IC 2011 & AFIA 2011 : Enrico MOTTA

    Bio: Enrico Motta is Professor of Knowledge Technologies at the Knowledge Media Institute of The Open University. He is one of the leading scientists in the world in the area of Knowledge Technologies and the author of about 230 refereed publications. Prof Motta is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, and a member of the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Web Semantics and IEEE Intelligent Systems. He is also the Founder and Director of the International Summer School on Ontology Engineering and the Semantic Web, the Chair of the NeOn Foundation, and a member of the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA). Together with Tom Heath he won the Semantic Web Challenge at the 2007 International Semantic Web Conference and, in collaboration with members of his research group, he has won the best paper award at the 2008 and 2009 Asian Semantic Web Conferences.
Title: Knowledge Engineering in the Age of the Semantic Web Abstract. The availability on a massive scale of formalized knowledge structures is changing the nature of knowledge-based applications. Traditionally, knowledge-based systems have relied on relatively small knowledge bases, purpose-built for a specific application and closed to external sources. With the emergence of the Semantic Web and the success of the Linked Open Data initiative, the focus is shifting towards building applications that exploit and aggregate existing data sources, to provide insights into such data and new forms of decision support. In this talk, I will discuss the current landscape for knowledge engineering, in particular providing an overview of our research programme on Next Generation Semantic Web Applications and illustrating a number of examples, where traditional knowledge engineering techniques are adapted for new scenarios and integrated with other technologies, to provide novel solutions to novel application contexts.
