Project Duration: 2008

New technologies for the Internet of Services (IoS) have been developed for the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) under the umbrella of the THESEUS-Project. In particular technologies, which make the access to information easy, generating knowledge by connecting data and creating the fundament for new services within the Internet. To achieve that, creating new semantic technologies is crucial. This project has been executed in cooperation with the following partners: Empolis, SAP, Siemens, Deutsche Thomson, Lycos, KMU (e.g. Morsophy, m2any, Intelligent Views, Ontoprise), Fraunhofer Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung (FhG), Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT), Deut­sche Nationalbibliothek (DNB), Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI), VDMA-Verband, Gesellschaft für Forschung und Innovation (VFI), Universities (Karlsruhe, München, Darmstadt, Dresden, Erlangen). Our work covered in particular:

  1. Optimization of similarity-maching algorithms. These algorithms unify ontologies, which describe the same subject, but use different terms for to describe it. Here the goal is to reduce the redundancy of semantic information and to complete existing semantic information. That is a crucial component for creating semantic web-services, such that these services work efficiently together and don’t deliver ambiguous or irritating results.
  2. Implementing similarity-matching algorithms and testing them
