Data Semantics Lab

The Data Semantics Lab has been at forefront of Semantic Web and Data Integration research since 2003. In data semantics, the focus is on how a data object represents a concept or object in the real word. We believe that the explicit presentation of data semantics facilitates data interoperation in the way how information is accessed, aggregated and organized on the Web. In particular, resolving semantic heterogeneity, gathering and sharing data among autonomous and heterogeneous data sources are key to the new pattern. Our lab focuses on scientific research and practical applications of Semantic Computing, Linked Data, Information Extraction, Knowledge Management, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Data Visualization, Business process modeling and Mobile technologies. We are working both with domestic and international partners from different organizations, enterprises and government.
