The Department also participated as minor (ad hoc / associate / network) partner in a number of other EU projects, such as MultilingualWeb, PetaMedia, KDubiq, Knowledge Web, OntoWeb, KDnet or MLnet.
Besides the funded projects, there are also long-term informal projects partially aligned with them; they focus on development and maintenance of software tools and other artifacts such as linked datasets, ontologies and standards. The prominent ones are listed in the following table.
|EasyMiner inductively learns rules using the “web search” paradigm, over an HTML interface. See http://easyminer.eu.||Kliegr||DMKD|
|LISp-Miner is a desktop data mining tool for effectively mining richly structured association hypotheses from tabular data; it also features a grid-based mining solution (LM-Grid) and generation of (nugget-containing) artificial datasets suitable for data mining education (ReverseMiner). See http://lispminer.vse.cz.||Šimůnek Rauch||DMKD|
|General Analytics INterceptor tracks and aggregates user interaction with web applications. It powers the http://inbeat.eu platform (placed 2nd out of 17 competitors in the ACM RecSys’13 News Recommender Challenge).
Collaboration with the Web Intelligence group at the CTU.
|EntityClassifier (THD tool) identifies entities in text and assigns them DBpedia types. It exploits the Linked Hypernym Dataset containing millions of entity-type assignments, of which most are novel w.r.t. both DBpedia and Yago 2s. See http://entityclassifier.eu/ and http://ner.vse.cz/datasets/linkedhypernyms/.
Collaboration with the Web Intelligence group at the CTU.
|Ex extracts information from the web using hand-made extraction ontologies as well as statistical models and local wrappers. See http://eso.vse.cz/~labsky/ex/.||Svátek||DMKD|
|PatOMat is a suite of tools for pattern-based transformation of ontologies and vocabularies. It among other includes a graphical plugin for Protégé, called GUIPOT. Best demo award at EKAW’12. See http://patomat.vse.cz/.|| Zamazal
|OpenData.CZ is a joint initiative with Charles University, Prague, towards linked open government data publication (in Czech Republic and EU in general). In this context the Public Contracts Ontology has been developed, and a number of open datasets have been RDFized. See http://opendata.cz/en.|| Svátek
|Within the OpenBudgets.eu project, an RDF data model for fiscal data based on the Data Cube Vocabulary, has been developed, and is used by the project partners as well as several other parties.||Mynarz||SWOE|
|CZ||Czech DBpedia is a national branch of DBpedia. It contains structured information in RDF, automatically extracted from Czech Wikipedia using mapping rules and other inventory.||Zeman
|DB-quiz is a game in which two players strive to connect the three sides of the triangular board by occupying hexagonal fields. A field is occupied through correctly answering a question generated from a fact base: Czech or English DBpedia, or a custom one. The challenging aspects of the game design are question despoilerification and difficulty rating.||Mynarz
|SPARQLab is an online exercise book for learning the SPARQL query language. The current version uses the linked dataset of the Czech Social Security Administration. (Both the application and the dataset documentation is currently in Czech only.)||Mynarz||SWOE|
|LODSight||LODSight is a linked dataset summarization tool with special focus on employed vocabularies. It aims to give insights into a dataset and vocabularies at the same time, by distinguishing between different vocabularies and providing examples of concrete values from the dataset as annotations to the summary graph.||Dudáš
|PURO||PURO is a formalism designed for “style-neutral” ontological background models from which OWL models in different modeling styles can be generated. Two interconnected tools have been developed for authoring PURO models and generation of OWL models from them: PURO Modeler and OBOWLMorph.||Dudáš
|OOSP||OOSP, Online Ontology Set Picker, is a tool for rapidly building tailored collections of ontologies based on their various metrics. Such collections can then be used as benchmarks for testing ontology management tools. The source collections used are LOV and Bioportal.||Zamazal||SWOE|
|NEST is an expert system shell with multiple methods of uncertainty processing and reasoning algorithms. Desktop version at http://sorry.vse.cz/~berka/NEST; web-based version at http://nest.vladalas.info/; newest domain-specific application (ontology visualization tool recommender) at http://owl.vse.cz:8080/OVTR/.||Berka||IIS|
|JNVDL is a Java-based tool for controlling the processing and validation of compound XML documents. See http://jnvdl.sourceforge.net.||Kosek||WELT|
|ITS||Support of the Internationalization Tag Set Version 2.0 in the W3C Markup Validator. See http://www.w3.org/TR/its20 and http://validator.w3.org.||Kosek||WELT|
