AMBIT: Semantic Engine Foundations for Knowledge Management in Context-dependent Applications

  title={AMBIT: Semantic Engine Foundations for Knowledge Management in Context-dependent Applications},
  author={Riccardo Martoglia},
Context-aware application and services proposing potentially useful information to users are more and more widespread; however, their actual usefulness is often limited by the “syntactical” notion of context they adopt. The recently started AMBIT project aims to provide a general software architecture for developing semantic-based context-aware tools in a number of vertical case study applications. In this paper, we focus on the knowledge management foundations we are laying for the Semantic…

AMBIT-SE: Towards a User-aware Semantic Enterprise Search Engine
This paper proposes a user-aware semantic enterprise search engine called AMBIT-SE, focused on the search in enterprise websites and takes into account also the user information, which turns out to be very useful to improve the search.
SocialGQ: Towards Semantically Approximated and User-aware Querying of Social-Graph Data
This paper presents SocialGQ (“Social-Graph Querying”), a novel approach for the effective and efficient querying of socialgraph data overcoming the limitations of typical search approaches proposed in the literature.

The definition of a middleware for composing and exploiting services that exhibits some key features is proposed that considers the profile of the users that exploit the service to choose appropriate services for them, and it exploits techniques of semantic similarity between user and service descriptions to make the choice more effective.
Towards User-Aware Service Composition
This paper exploits the user profile not only to provide her with customized services, but also to compose them in a suitable way, in order to decide the composition that better meets users’ requirements.
A Tailor made System for providing Personalized Services
A tailor made system for providing personalized services and it is based on a graphical formalism for the context representation: the Context Dimension Tree is introduced.


Facilitate IT-Providing SMEs in Software Development: a Semantic Helper for Filtering and Searching Knowledge
The proposed knowledge-based text analysis and retrieval techniques will form a key component of the advanced filtering mechanisms of the FACIT-SME European FP-7 project and are designed to be more powerful and flexible than standard syntactic search techniques but also to be easily applicable for any SME.
Knowledge-based sense disambiguation (almost) for all structures
AMBIT: Towards an Architecture for the Development of Context-dependent Applications and Systems
The AMBIT research project aims at providing a general model of context as well as a platform that can be exploited to build and deploy different kinds of context-dependent applications and systems.
Context data management: an architectural framework for context-aware services
This paper defines a framework for context data management relying on open standards (XMPP and REST), acting as an enabler for third-party context-aware applications and the definition of a ContextML for standard context data representation, and a Context Query Language (CQL) to access context information based on high-level data filtering.
A survey on context-aware systems
Common architecture principles of context-aware systems are presented and a layered conceptual design framework is derived to explain the different elements common to mostcontext-aware architectures.
Data-Sharing P2P Networks with Semantic Approximation Capabilities
The authors leverage the presence of semantic approximations between peers' schemas to improve query routing by identifying the peers that best satisfy the user's requests, and to inform users of the relevance of the returned answers through a ranking mechanism that promotes the most semantically related results.
Context Modeling and Context Awareness: steps forward in the Context-ADDICT project
We give an account of the researches on context-aware information tailoring which are going on within the PEDiGREE1 group at Politecnico di Milano, starting from a foundational framework for the
Web metasearch: rank vs. score based rank aggregation methods
It is shown that the rank based method, named Borda Count, is competitive with score based methods, but this is not true for metasearch, and it will be shown that Markov chain based methods compete with Score based methods.
Location-dependent services for mobile users
This paper proposes a framework to model users' location via a multiplicity of local and active service contexts, and shows how the MARS coordination middleware, implementing service contexts in terms of programmable tuple spaces, can be used to develop and deploy applications and M-services coherently with the above framework.
WordNet: A Lexical Database for English
WordNet1 provides a more effective combination of traditional lexicographic information and modern computing, and is an online lexical database designed for use under program control.
