Povzetek predavanjaConcept Modelling for Knowledge Search
People use concepts every day to express their thoughts. Concepts are used in human communication because they carry unique meaning (for example: a house, a dog, a car, etc). Still, one does not know how the derivation of concepts from learned knowledge and everyday perception is done. For every person, concept derivation is unique. Consequently, there is no unique definition of the term concept, and there is no commonly accepted understanding of what a concept is. In general, every object, issue, idea, person, process, place, etc. can be represented by a concept. This presentation is a survey of ongoing research efforts in concept modelling. It sheds the light on the essence of numerous existing approaches, and presents all of them in a uniform manner, together with the original research of the authors.
How to Ruin the Career of a PhD Student
This presentation defines the major bottlenecks in the research related to the infrastructure for e-business on the Internet (hardware, software, system, and communications), and talks about the recent and ongoing research done by the staff and associates of IPSI Belgrade, for industry in the USA, and with selected universities in EU, on FP6 and FP7 projects. Results of this research include prototypes for a number of commercial products and about 40 papers published in IEEE journals. Topics covered by that research and this presentation include: Internet gallery, reverse engineering in graphics and multimedia, on-chip and on-board accelerators for PC software, microprocessor improvements for modern e-business, efficient integration of computing and communications, genetic Internet search, customer satisfaction based Internet search, engines for e-ducation, e-tourism, technology transfer, and scientific interchange on the Internet, semantic web analysis, integration of business applications with wireless sensor nets, etc. Each particular topic can be expanded into a self-contained separate talk. Since this work served as the basis for a number of MSC and PHD thesis efforts, the last part of the presentation tells about the major errors that an advisor can make.
