What is MindLab

MindLab is a cooperative research project with the goal to develop methods and software tools for modeling and implementing scalability for knowledge graphs.

Why

Feratel and Onlim provide dialogue-based access to touristic information, products, and services.
But meaningful dialogues require large amounts of knowledge to be available in a machine processable way.
For this purpose the Mindlab project develops knowledge graph technologies.

How

In MindLab, we will develop methods and tools that allow information providers to construct a Knowledge Graph relevant to their content. In detail:

  • Semantic annotations: Methods and tools for the manual, semi-automatic and automated generation of semantic annotations and their integration into a knowledge graph.
  • Quality control of Knowledge Graphs: Methods and tools for semi-automated and automated quality control and improvement of knowledge graphs.
  • Connecting Knowledge Graphs: Methods and tools for semi-automated and automated extension of a knowledge graph with other heterogeneous and dynamic information sources and knowledge graphs.
  • Life cycle of knowledge graphs: Methods and tools for the manual, semi-automatic and automated generation of semantic annotations and their integration into a knowledge graph.
  • Mapping: Methods and tools for manual, semi-automatic and automatic mapping of unstructutred data into machine processable form

Who

www.feratel.com

One of the leaders in the field of e-tourism. More than 4,000 destinations in Europe trust feratel’s digital solutions in the areas of information and reservation systems, telecommunications and media in the marketing of their tourism offering.

www.onlim.com

A startup of the University of Innsbruck has quickly become the leading platform provider of dialog-based communication systems based on knowledge graphs. Meanwhile, these solutions are u.a. developed for the areas of education, energy, finance, retail and tourism.

Univ. Prof. Dr. Dieter Fensel is co-founder of the Semantic Web and researches with the STI research group since 2002 at the University of Innsbruck. In a variety of EU projects, methods and techniques of semantic annotation of content, data and services and their integration into knowledge graphs have been developed.
