Artificial Intelligence Group (Prof. Stuckenschmidt)

Our group conducts fundamental and applied research in knowledge representation formalisms with a focus on reasoning techniques for information extraction and integration. Our work is centered around:

  • Standard reasoning including description logic reasoning and non-standard reasoning techniques (explanations and debugging techniques)
  • Combining Probabilistic reasoning and Utility Theory with Description Logics
  • Applications in various domains (web data integration and management, semantic web, ontology matching, context-aware applications, Business Process Management etc.)
