Processing the data by computers and performing reasoning tasks is an important aim in Computer Science. Semantic Web is one step towards it. The use of ontologies to enhance the information by semantically is the current trend. Huge amount of domain specific, unstructured on-line data needs to be expressed in machine understandable and semantically searchable format. Currently users are often forced to search manually in the results returned by the keyword-based search services. They also want to use their native languages to express what they search. In this paper, an ontology-based automated question answering system on software test documents domain is presented. The system allows users to enter a question about the domain by means of natural language and returns exact answer of the questions. Conversion of the natural language question into the ontology based query is the challenging part of the system. To be able to achieve this, a new algorithm regarding free text to ontology based search engine query conversion is proposed. The algorithm is based on investigation of suitable question type and parsing the words of the question sentence.

A fuzzy Petri net model for intelligent databases
Bostan-Korpeoglu, Burcin; Yazıcı, Adnan (Elsevier BV, 2007-08-01)
Knowledge intensive applications require an intelligent environment, which can perform deductions in response to user queries or events that occur inside or outside of the applications. For that, we propose a fuzzy Petri net (FPN) model to represent knowledge and the behavior of an intelligent object-oriented database environment, which integrates fuzzy, active and deductive rules with database objects. The behavior of a system can be unpredictable due to the rules triggering or untriggering each other (non...
An ontology and conceptual graph based best matching algorithm for context-aware applications
Koushaeian, Reza; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Context-aware computing is based on using knowledge about the current context. Interpretation of current context to an understandable knowledge is carried out by reasoning over context and in some cases by matching the current context with the desired context. In this thesis we concentrated on context matching issue in context-aware computing domain. Context matching can be done in various ways like it is done in other matching processes. Our matching approach is best matching in order to generate granular ...
A fuzzy petri net model for intelligent databases
Bostan, Burçin; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
Knowledge intensive applications require an intelligent environment, which can perform deductions in response to user queries or events that occur inside or outside of the applications. For that, we propose a Fuzzy Petri Net (FPN) model to represent the knowledge and the behavior in an intelligent object-oriented database environment, which integrates fuzzy, active and deductive rules with database objects. By gaining intelligent behaviour, the system maintains objects to perceive dynamic occurences and use...
A Context-aware reminder system based on publish and subscribe model
Çağlar, Önder; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2013)
The usage of computing technologies to build smart and interactive human-centric systems that support our daily life activities is gaining popularity day by day. Pervasive computing seems to be a new computing revolution era in the near future. In this sense, context-aware reminder systems stand out as interesting and stimulating research topic. Such systems are used to remind important events and activities properly at the right time and at the right place. In this context, the system detects the user’s en...
Utilisation of Decision Support Systems in Construction Management: A Literature Survey
Günay, Göksu ; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray (2020-11-12)
Today, computers are widely used in all industries for data collection and analysis, interpretation of data and decision making processes. Especially Decision Support Systems, which are computer-based Information Systems providing tools for assisting managers in making semi-structured decisions, have gained stronger ground parallel to the latest developments in information technologies including artificial intelligence applications like fuzzy logic, machine learning, natural langu...
