Adaptive Semantic Assistants in Online Applications
The rapid growth rate of available textual documents underlines a prominent need for novel approaches to overcome the information overload that knowledge workers are faced with. In such situations, new information filtering and analysis techniques are required to provide end users with information related to their context and task at hand. In cooperation with the Semantic Software Lab at Concordia University in Montréal, Canada (http://www.semanticsoftware.info), we have been developing a new generation of portals that automatically adapt to their users context using novel techniques from the Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Semantic Computing domains. The vision is to extend an…
