Last session discussed the use of various approaches for classifying
content and deriving metadata in order to improve search and
navigation. We reviewed different rules based, statistical and
learning algorithms along with advantages and limitations of each. We
defined machine aided indexing and how one might approach
retrospectively indexing content.
In this session, we will discuss how ontologies and semantic
approaches can be leveraged as another set of tools and approaches to
solving the problem or organizing content that does not contain metadata.
Dr. Amit. Sheth will provide practical examples of next generation
approaches to deriving order from content chaos.
This session will begin with a high level understanding of leading
areas of research but focus on specific and practical recommendations.
