Team presentation

The pluridisciplinary project-team EDELWEISS aims at offering models, methods and tools for supporting virtual communities of practice and/or interest to collaboratively manage their knowledge by interacting with information resources and persons through the Web. Resources and methods are "semantically annotated", i.e. indexed using "ontologies". Communities of practice and/or interest are informal groups of people who have a common interest or passion in some subject or problem, and who share ideas and experiences, and jointly find solutions.

Research themes

  1. Interaction Design of Semantic Systems
    • Supporting “Human Interoperability” in Semantic Activities through “Articulating Functionalities” and in Scenario Management Activities
    • Experimental evaluation of inferences for information retrieval and other tasks
    • Ontology-based intelligent interfaces
  2. Knowledge-Graph-based Representation of the Semantic Web Knowledge
    • Semantic Factory & Knowledge Graph Toolkit
    • Semantic Web
    • Ontology-based Model Driven Engineering
    • Inferences characteristic to graphs

International and industrial relations

  • Kolflow ANR Project 2011-2014: Investigation on Man-machine collaboration in continuous knowledge-construction flows.
  • DataLift ANR Project 2010-2013: Datalift brings raw structured data coming from various formats (relational databases, CSV, XML, ...) to semantic data interlinked on the Web of Data.
  • Isicil ANR Project 2009-2012: Study and experiment with the usage of new Semantic and Social Web tools for assisting corporate intelligence tasks.
