Hierarchies are becoming increasingly popular for the organization of text documents, particularly on the Web. Web directories, such as the Yahoo! Directory and the Dmoz Directory, are typical examples. Along with their widespread use, comes the need for automated classification of new documents to...

The talk will present the results of our thesis where we studied the stages for the processing and mainly the recognition of handwritten documents. Processing consists of pre-processing for image enhancement; and segmentation for detecting first text lines, then words and finally characters. At the...

In order to make content management systems able to exploit annotations about content semantics for the management of content, this work proposes an approach for text interpretation that is built on the principles of logic-based abduction. The approach is presented in the context of a framework...

The task of parameter/function estimation has been at the center of scientific attention for a long time and it comes under different names such as filtering, prediction, beamforming, classification, regression. Conventionally, the task has been treated as an optimization task of an appropriately...

Online auctions have become a popular method for business transactions. The variety of different auction rules, restrictions in supply or demand, and the agents' combinatorial preferences for sets of goods, mean that realistic scenarios are very complex. Using game theory, we design trading...

Intelligent virtual environments are a relatively new scientific field that is concerned with the representation of worlds by means of computers with a focus on intelligent virtual agent behaviour. The design and development of intelligent virtual environment systems requires the convergence of a...

Allen's hourglass is motivated by the need to handle robustly the uncertainty of temporal intervals, e.g. as it occurs in automated event detection in video streams. We introduce a two-dimensional mapping of Allen's relations, based on orthogonal characteristics of interval relations, namely...

The presentation describes a set of practices and methods that were developed within the OKKAM project (www.okkam.org), related to the identification of entities and the managment of related information in view of the Semantic Web. We will also refer to a machine learning and user modeling problem...
