Invited talk frank van harmelen

Invited talk: Frank van Harmelen

  • Title: Where does it break? or: Why the Semantic Web is not just "research as usual"

  • Examples of traditional assumption of Computer Science that no longer hold

    • Traditional complexity measures

    • Tasks that are hard in theory may be easy in practice

    • Knowledge has to be considered in context

    • Logics and statistics no longer separate


Invited talk ed hovy

Invited talk: Ed Hovy

  • Title: Toward large-scale shallow semantics for higher-quality NLP

  • There is a lot of research on semantics in NLP, though more shallow than in KR

  • Statistical NLP can go far, but some KR semantics might help improve results

    • Gorbachev not spouse of Reagan

  • ML researchers working on tagged NLP corpora should understand the nature of NLP used


Invited talk anthony jameson

Invited talk: Anthony Jameson

  • Title: Usability and the Semantic Web

  • Users want to have a (vague) idea of what is going on

    • Mental model vs. design model

    • Predict what the system will do

    • Help understand unexpected behaviour

  • Instant gratification

    • Mangrove: display the uses of user’s annotation in different services
