Knowledge Representation & Reasoning

The scientific question which is explored in this project concerns how to process, represent and reason on knowledge in distributed and open environments such as, in particular, the Web?

It is further decomposed into:

  • How to process and represent weak structured information (e.g. web pages, social networks)?
  • How to realise the semantic modelling of the current and future data sets?
  • What scalable reasoning and inference technics to address open, heterogeneous and distributed environments?

Multi-Agents & Services

The scientific question which is explored in this project concerns how to coordinate and adapt agents and services deployed in open, decentralized, dynamic and large scale systems?

It is further decomposed into:

  • What coordination models to coordinate agents operating in open, large scale and dynamic environments?
  • How to ensure the adaptation of such systems in dynamic environments?
  • How to model and integrate ethical and privacy principles in autonomous sytems?
