What is MindLab

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

Why

„Mindlab wants to make knowledge available as answers to questions and for its use in proactive dialogues.“

1) Feratel and Onlim want to provide dialoge-based access to touristic information, products, and services.

„But useful dialogs require the knowledge to be available in machine processable way.“

2) Providing computer-based dialogues in a meaningful manner requires machine-based access to large amounts of knowledge

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.

Partners

The project has three partners: two industrial partners and one academic partner:

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, retail, energy, finance 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.
