ZONE-project provides a new, innovative way to follow news. At its core, the system is aggregating news items from various RSS feeds. Using the power of semantic web we are able to efficiently tag & annotate each news.Those tags are the basis of filters. Filters allow users to see only news that are relevant. For instance users can retrieve all news containing a tag, or on the contrary never see news containing specific tags. Basically it means that each user can create custom news feeds according to his interests. Though it may be tedious for John Doe to build its own filters, thus it will be possible to exchange filters with other users, or read specific news feeds built by other users. This will enable users to create news group feed focused on specific topics such as technology, heath, industry, transport, agriculture, communication, environment... No field can escape from the ZONE search and news feed mechanism!
Christophe is currently working full time on this project thanks to Inria. In fact this project won the BoostYourCode 2012 contest which was created in order to promote free & open source software.
Design and Implementation of a version of DBPedia for Wikipedia in french, French Ministry of Culture.
CrEDIBLE is a project funded by the MASTODONS (Défi Grandes Masses de Données Scientifiques) projects of the CNRS Mission Interdisciplinarité. It aims at studying the scientific locks when constructing systems sharing distributed and heterogeneous data in the domain medical imaging.
This new ANR project is starting in December 2012. The objective of OCKTOPUS is to increase the potential social and economic benefit of the large and quickly growing amounts of user-generated content, by transforming it into useful knowledge. We believe that it is possible to considerably improve upon existing generic Information Retrieval techniques by exploiting the specific structure of this content and of the online communities which produce it. Specifically, we will focus on a multi-disciplinary approach in order to address the problem of finding relevant answers to questions within forums and question-answer sites.
Development activity (ADT) with support from INRIA (2010-2012) on Semantic Graph Visualization providing the SemanticWebImport Gephi Plugin. The action focus is on coupling Corese and Gephi Open Graph Visualization Platform to provide a framework to query and visualize RDF data taking into account their schemas.
The Kolflow project (ANR project, 2011-2014) proposes to extend collective intelligence with smart agents relying on automated reasoning. Smart agents can significantly reduce the overhead of communities in the process of continuously building knowledge. Consequently, continuous knowledge building is much more effcient. Kolflow aims at building a social semantic space where humans collaborate with smart agents in order to produce knowledge understandable by humans and machines. Humans are able to understand the actions of smart agents. Smart agents are able to understand actions of humans. Kolflow targets the co-evolution of content and knowledge as the result of interactions of humans and machines.
DataLift (2010-2013) is an experimental research project funded by the ANR French national research agency. Its goal is to design a platform to publish and interlink datasets on the Web of data. Datalift will both publish datasets coming from a network of partners and data providers and propose a set of tools for easing the datasets publication process.
DataLift brings raw structured data coming from various formats (relational databases, CSV, XML, ...) to semantic data interlinked on the Web of Data.
Isicil (2009-2012) this three year project proposes to study and to experiment with the usage of new tools to assist corporate intelligence tasks. These tools rely on web 2.0 advanced interfaces (blog, wiki, social bookmarking) for interactions and on semantic web technologies for interoperability and information processing. For more information see the description of the ISICIL project or contact the project leader Fabien Gandon.
