Despite a number of frameworks, programming with Description Logics is still challenging in unique ways. Part of the problem are static type systems, that are supposed to prevent runtime errors.
In distributed RDF stores, the stored graph is partitioned and each partition is stored on a computer. While querying this distributed graph, the information stored in one partition might not be enough to produce the requested answer.
This thesis focuses on gaining linguistic insights into textual discussions on a word level. It was of special interest to distinguish messages that constructively contribute to a discussion from those that are detrimental to them.
Transfer learning refers to a class of machine learning methods concerned with transferring knowledge learned from one or more domains (the sources) to be applied to a given domain (the target).
Belief Revision and Formal Argumentation are two subfields of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) that deal with resolving inconsistencies in logic- based representations of information through dynamic processes.
One of the main goals of the artificial intelligence community is to create machines able to reason with dynamically changing knowledge.
Das Institut WEST betreibt die Netzwerkdatenbank KONECT. Die Datenbank hat die Funktion möglichst viele verschiedene Netzwerke zu katalogisieren. Ein Hinzufügen von Duplikaten stellt dabei ein Problem dar, da es Experimente, die auf dieser Datenbank ausgeführt werden, stark verfälscht.
Tracking ones heart rate (especially RR-Intervals) can be very effective for a persons health. Via the Baevsky stress index with the help of simple statistics one can determine if a person is stressed or chilled.
Evolutionary Linguistics is the study of the origins and the development of human language. Although most human languages differ substantially in the details they share a lot of general structure.
Semantic Web technologies facilitate Web data integration in an unprecedented manner. First, they are able to create a global knowledge base out of Web data sets which may have been defined in heterogeneous contexts and published in distributed locations.
