  • In the last years knowledge graphs have received a lot of attention. During the 14th Reasoning Web Summer School at Luxembourg, 22nd-26th September, the participants learned what knowledge graphs are and how they are created. Furthermore, efficient querying and reasoning on these knowledge graphs first in a centralized and thereafter in a distributed way were taught. On the summer school Steffen Staab presented how RDF stored in the cloud store and query knowledge graphs over several compute nodes.

  • The International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA) is one of the main forums for presentation and exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects of argumentation. At this year's COMMA, held in Warsaw, Matthias Thimm and Tjitze Rienstra presented several recent works. Matthias Thimm gave presentations on Stochastic Local Search Algorithms for Abstract Argumentation under Stable Semantics, Probabilistic Graded Semantics and Epistemic Attack Semantics. Tjitze Rienstra presented work on Ranking Functions over Labellings.

  • The contributors of the GazeMining project have been decorated with the Best Video Award at the 2018 ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking (ETRA) in Warsaw, June 2018. The video had been submitted as addition to the paper "Enhanced Representation of Web Pages for Usability Analysis with Eye Tracking". They have proposed a method that identifies fixed elements on Web pages and combines user viewport screenshots in relation to fixed elements for an enhanced representation of the page.

  • Tjitze Rienstra will give an invited talk On the relationship between argumentation networks and Bayesian networks at the Second Chinese Conference on Logic and Argumentation (CLAR 2018).

    Argumentation networks and Bayesian networks are two graph-theoretical formalisms used in AI that serve different purposes. In his talk, Dr. Rienstra will show that it is nevertheless possible to treat them in a unifying manner.

  • Human voice and eyes are the most natural sources that can provide input signals to facilitate hands-free human-computer interaction. However, the applicability is subjective to the factors of user preference, context, accuracy and the performance of individual modality. In this work, we aim to neutralize these factors for a true hands-free experience: integration of the two modalities for a wholesome Web browsing experience. We will demonstrate the prototype at the 2018 ACM symposium on eye tracking (ETRA) in Warsaw, June 2018.

  • In product development, considerable efforts can be saved by reusing existing product models. In order to better adapt these reused product models to new requirements, the EVOWIPE project develops methods for intentional forgetting, which allow the product developer to remove parts of the product model that do not meet new requirements.
