Abstract:

Humanity has produced more digital information over the last five years than over all of its previous history. With this flood of diverse data come a plethora of new requirements to data processing approaches. In particular, automatic approaches to capture, integrate, access and use the knowledge available in this data become indispensable. In this talk, we present how work carried out at the Data Science group of the University of Paderborn addresses some of the requirements to data processing aforementioned. After a short introduction, we epitomize the simple but powerfull knowledge representation paradigm underlying the rest of the talk. We then delve into three of the pillars of our work, i.e., knowledge extraction, knowledge integration and knowledge access. For each pillar, we give some insights into the types of approaches developed by the group. Future challenges and open questions complete the talk.
