People | Alumni | Zarko AleksovskiVisiting Researcher
I was visiting researcher at KMi for a four week period in February 2007. My purpose of visiting was to do some work on ontology matching together with Marta Sabou.
In my research I am focused on using background knowledge in ontology matching, which I have been working on for the last couple of years. My past experience on this topic includes experiments with different medical and music ontologies.
However, my research interests are not limited to the Semantic Web area, as I am rather interested in Machine Learning as well.

Our research is centred around the theme of Multimedia Information Retrieval, ie, Video Search Engines, Image Databases, Spoken Document Retrieval, Music Retrieval, Query Languages and Query Mediation.
We focus on content-based information retrieval over a wide range of data spanning form unstructured text and unlabelled images over spoken documents and music to videos. This encompasses the modelling of human perception of relevance and similarity, the learning from user actions and the up-to-date presentation of information. Currently we are building a research version of an integrated multimedia information retrieval system MIR to be used as a research prototype. We aim for a system that understands the user's information need and successfully links it to the appropriate information sources, be it a report or a TV news clip. This work is guided by the vision that an automated knowledge extraction system ultimately empowers people making efficient use of information sources without the burden of filing data into specialised databases.
