Successful Completion of AI4EU KE4WoT Challenge

Successful Completion of AI4EU KE4WoT Challenge

We are very happy and proud to announce, that VSR has successfully reached the final third milestone and completed the IoTxKG project in the context of AI4EU. Within the last six months, our team was working as a solution provider for the KE4WoT challenge, investigating novel AI-driven models for knowledge extraction in the Web of Things domain. We designed a method to identify and represent core concepts which we successfully applied to Ontologies from the Smart Home, Smart Weather, Smart Transportation and Smart Energy domains and validated it with domain experts. Our research has contributed to the advancement of the European AI on Demand platform, AI4EU (https://www.ai4europe.eu/), and our models are available via the AI4EU Experiments marketplace (https://aiexp.ai4europe.eu/#/marketPlace). Stay tuned for further details about our NLP-based clustering models and interactive concept visualizations to be published in 2022.
Congratulations to our IoTxKG team Mahda Noura, Sebastian Heil and Martin Gaedke!
