Ontolojik natüralizm ve yöntemsel natüralizm birbirini dışlar: deneysel parapsikolojinin düşündürdükleri üzerine
Tümkaya, Serdal (Mantık Derneği Yayınları; 2018-12-31)
In analytic Western philosophy, it is said to be two versions of naturalism. The first one is ontological and the second is methodological. Ontological version suggests that there are no supernatural entities. The methodological one argues that there are or should be no categorical distinctions between philosophy and science. I, herein, argue that these two versions exclude each other. Here are my major reasons. What is to be acknowledged as supernatural or natural cannot be foreknown. Science is subject to...
Ontology learning and question answering (qa) systems
Başkurt, Meltem; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Ontology Learning requires a deep specialization on Semantic Web, Knowledge Representation, Search Engines, Inductive Learning, Natural Language Processing, Information Storage, Extraction and Retrieval. 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 expr...
Ontology evaluation: An example of delay analysis
Bilgin, Gozde; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (2014-06-24)
Ontologies have a place in knowledge sharing with their ability to capture real world information in a machine readable environment. Their application varies from any approach structured on ontological commitment to meta -level ontologies serving for variety of purposes. This variety continues also in methodologies for constructing the ontologies. There are wide range of ontologies differing in size and complexity that are created with different design criteria. The main point with the ontologies is their s...
Ontology based information extraction on free text radiological reports using natural language processing approach
Soysal, Ergin; Çiçekli, İlyas; Department of Medical Informatics (2010)
This thesis describes an information extraction system that is designed to process free text Turkish radiology reports in order to extract and convert the available information into a structured information model. The system uses natural language processing techniques together with domain ontology in order to transform the verbal descriptions into a target information model, so that they can be used for computational purposes. The developed domain ontology is effectively used in entity recognition and relat...
Ontology based semantic retrieval of video contents using metadata
Akpınar, Samet; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
The aim of this thesis is the development of an infrastructure which is used for semantic retrieval of multimedia contents. Motivated by the needs of semantic search and retrieval of multimedia contents, operating directly on the MPEG-7 based annotations can be thought as a reasonable way for meeting these needs as MPEG-7 is a common standard providing a wide multimedia content description schema. However, it is clear that the MPEG-7 formalism is deficient about the semantics and reasoning support. From thi...
