Data structuring for the ontological modelling of wind energy systems
Adrian Groza
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Small wind projects encounter difficulties to be efficiently deployed, partly because wrong way data and information are managed. Ontologies can overcome the drawbacks of partially available, noisy, inconsistent, and heterogeneous data sources, by providing a semantic middleware between low level data and more general knowledge. In this paper, we engineer an ontology for the wind energy domain using description logic as technical instrumentation. We aim to integrate corpus of heterogeneous knowledge, both digital and human, in order to help the interested user to speed-up the initialization of a small-scale wind project. We exemplify one use case scenario of our ontology, that consists of automatically checking whether a planned wind project is compliant or not with the active regulations.
Designing Electronic Markets for Defeasible-based Contractual Agents
Adrian Groza
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: The design of punishment policies applied to specific domains linking agents actions to material penalties is an open research issue. The proposed framework applies principles of contract law to set penalties: expectation damages, opportunity cost, reliance damages, and party design remedies. In order to decide which remedy provides maximum welfare within an electronic market, a simulation environment called DEMCA (Designing Electronic Markets for Contractual Agents) was developed. Knowledge representation and the reasoning capabilities of the agents are based on an extended version of temporal defeasible logic.
Using Semantic Wikis for Structured Argument in Medical Domain
Adrian Groza,Radu Balaj
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: This research applies ideas from argumentation theory in the context of semantic wikis, aiming to provide support for structured-large scale argumentation between human agents. The implemented prototype is exemplified by modelling the MMR vaccine controversy.
Information retrieval in folktales using natural language processing
Adrian Groza,Lidia Corde
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Our aim is to extract information about literary characters in unstructured texts. We employ natural language processing and reasoning on domain ontologies. The first task is to identify the main characters and the parts of the story where these characters are described or act. We illustrate the system in a scenario in the folktale domain. The system relies on a folktale ontology that we have developed based on Propp's model for folktales morphology.
Enacting textual entailment and ontologies for automated essay grading in chemical domain
Adrian Groza,Roxana Szabo
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: We propose a system for automated essay grading using ontologies and textual entailment. The process of textual entailment is guided by hypotheses, which are extracted from a domain ontology. Textual entailment checks if the truth of the hypothesis follows from a given text. We enact textual entailment to compare students answer to a model answer obtained from ontology. We validated the solution against various essays written by students in the chemistry domain.
Enacting Social Argumentative Machines in Semantic Wikipedia
Adrian Groza,Sergiu Indrie
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: This research advocates the idea of combining argumentation theory with the social web technology, aiming to enact large scale or mass argumentation. The proposed framework allows mass-collaborative editing of structured arguments in the style of semantic wikipedia. The long term goal is to apply the abstract machinery of argumentation theory to more practical applications based on human generated arguments, such as deliberative democracy, business negotiation, or self-care. The ARGNET system was developed based on ther Semantic MediaWiki framework and on the Argument Interchange Format (AIF) ontology.
Plausible Description Logic Programs for Stream Reasoning
Adrian Groza,Ioan Alfred Letia
Future Internet , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/fi4040865
Abstract: Sensor networks are estimated to drive the formation of the future Internet, with stream reasoning responsible for analysing sensor data. Stream reasoning is defined as real time logical reasoning on large, noisy, heterogeneous data streams, aiming to support the decision process of large numbers of concurrent querying agents. In this research we exploited non-monotonic rule-based systems for handling inconsistent or incomplete information and also ontologies to deal with heterogeneity. Data is aggregated from distributed streams in real time and plausible rules fire when new data is available. The advantages of lazy evaluation on data streams were investigated in this study, with the help of a prototype developed in Haskell.
Justificatory and Explanatory Argumentation for Committing Agents
Ioan Alfred Letia,Adrian Groza
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: In the interaction between agents we can have an explicative discourse, when communicating preferences or intentions, and a normative discourse, when considering normative knowledge. For justifying their actions our agents are endowed with a Justification and Explanation Logic (JEL), capable to cover both the justification for their commitments and explanations why they had to act in that way, due to the current situation in the environment. Social commitments are used to formalise justificatory and explanatory patterns. The combination of ex- planation, justification, and commitments
Automating the Dispute Resolution in Task Dependency Network
Ioan Alfred Letia,Adrian Groza
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: When perturbation or unexpected events do occur, agents need protocols for repairing or reforming the supply chain. Unfortunate contingency could increase too much the cost of performance, while breaching the current contract may be more efficient. In our framework the principles of contract law are applied to set penalties: expectation damages, opportunity cost, reliance damages, and party design remedies, and they are introduced in the task dependency model
OntoRich - A Support Tool for Semi-Automatic Ontology Enrichment and Evaluation
Adrian Groza,Gabriel Barbur,Bogdan Blaga
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: This paper presents the OntoRich framework, a support tool for semi-automatic ontology enrichment and evaluation. The WordNet is used to extract candidates for dynamic ontology enrichment from RSS streams. With the integration of OpenNLP the system gains access to syntactic analysis of the RSS news. The enriched ontologies are evaluated against several qualitative metrics.
