Center of Data and TeXT Engineering and Mining

Introduction:

 Center of Data and TexT Engineering and Mining at the Military College of Signals, National University of Sciences and Technology conducts research mainly in text processing domain, with particular emphasis on :

  • Terminology Management (Controlled Vocabularies & Ontologies)
  • Information Extraction
  • Document Clustering
  • Text Summarization
  • and Semantic Web technologies, especially

  • Making the ontologies linguistically rich (Worked in LexInfo Project at DERI, Ireland
  • Automatic generation of ontologies from literature (Ref-Project)
  • Linked Data (especially open data for e-Government) (Ref-Project)
  • and a few recently developed interests

  • Data as a Service - Cloud Computing.
