My areas of research are Artificial Intelligence and Multimedia. My main interests are: logical foundation of the Semantic Web, intelligent multimedia technology, formal theories of intelligent agents, and their implementation, applied logics for decision support systems, and reasoning about actions.

I am interested in the philosophy of mind, too.

Current Projects

  • EURECA: The goal of the EU FP7 Large-Scale Integrating Project EURECA (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and Care) is to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials.

  • SRLORA: a proejct funded by NSFC (National Nature Science Foundation of China). The aim of the project SRLORA is to learn DL axioms in semantic data by using the methods of statistical relation learning.

  • CRION: a proejct investigates contrastive reasoning, the reasoning with contrasts which are expressed as contrary conjunctions like the word "but" in natural language.

    Recent Projects

  • PoliticalMashup: A project exploring and exploiting official publications and political documents.

  • LarKC: The EU FP7 Large-Scale Integrating Project LarKC is to develop the Large Knowledge Collider, a platform for massive distributed incomplete reasoning that will remove the scalability barriers of currently existing reasoning systems for the Semantic Web.

  • Chinese WordNet: an international cooperation project with SouthEast University of China. This project investigates the development of Chinese WordNet.

    Previous Projects
