Kara, Soner
In this thesis, we present an ontology-based information extraction and retrieval system and its application to soccer domain. In general, we deal with three issues in semantic search, namely, usability, scalability and retrieval performance. We propose a keyword-based semantic retrieval approach. The performance of the system is improved considerably using domain-specific information extraction, inference and rules. Scalability is achieved by adapting a semantic indexing approach. The system is implemented using the state-of-the-art technologies in SemanticWeb and its performance is evaluated against traditional systems as well as the query expansion methods. Furthermore, a detailed evaluation is provided to observe the performance gain due to domain-specific information extraction and inference. Finally, we show how we use semantic indexing to solve simple structural ambiguities.

Automatic web service composition with ai planning
Kuzu, Mehmet; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, some novel ideas are presented for solving automated web service composition problem. Some possible real world problems such as partial observability of environment, nondeterministic effects of web services, service execution failures are solved through some mechanisms. In addition to automated web service composition, automated web service invocation task is handled in this thesis by using reflection mechanism. The proposed approach is based on AI planning. Web service composition problem i...
Natural language query processing in ontology based multimedia databases
Aygül, Filiz Alaca; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis a natural language query interface is developed for semantic and spatio-temporal querying of MPEG-7 based domain ontologies. The underlying ontology is created by attaching domain ontologies to the core Rhizomik MPEG-7 ontology. The user can pose concept, complex concept (objects connected with an “AND” or “OR” connector), spatial (left, right . . . ), temporal (before, after, at least 10 minutes before, 5 minutes after . . . ), object trajectory and directional trajectory (east, west, southe...
Coupling speech recognition and rule-based machine translation
Köprü, Selçuk; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
The objective of this thesis was to study the coupling of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems with rule-based machine translation (MT) systems. In this thesis, a unique approach to integrating ASR with MT for speech translation (ST) tasks was proposed. The proposed approach is unique, essentially because it includes the rst rule-based MT system that can process speech data in a word graph format. Compared to other rule-based MT systems, our system processes both a word graph and a stream of words. Th...
An Intelligent Inference System for Robot Hand Optimal Grasp Preshaping
BAYSAL, CABBAR VEYSEL; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (Atlantis Press, 2010-10-01)
This paper presents a novel Intelligent Inference System (IIS) for the determination of an optimum preshape for multifingered robot hand grasping, given object under a manipulation task. The IIS is formed as hybrid agent architecture, by the synthesis of object properties, manipulation task characteristics, grasp space partitioning, low-level kinematical analysis, evaluation of contact wrench patterns via fuzzy approximate reasoning and ANN structure for incremental learning. The IIS is implemented in softw...
