LarKC: The Large Knowledge Collider - a platform for massive distributed incomplete reasoning

  • Completed
  • Programme: FP7
  • Call: ICT-2007.4.2 - Intelligent content and semantics (ICT-2007.4.2)
  • Start date: 01.04.2008
  • End date: 30.09.2009

LarKC (Large Scale Semantic Computing\nSemantic Web technologies\ndistributed reasoning\nprobabilistic reasoning\nweb-scale inference\ninformation retrieval) aims is to go beyond the limited storage and inference solutions currently available for semantic computing.

Project Overview

  • Enriching the current logic-based Semantic Web reasoning methods with methods from information retrieval, machine learning, information theory, databases, and probabilistic reasoning
  • Employing cognitively inspired approaches and techniques such as spreading activation, focus of attention, reinforcement,etc
  • Building a distributed reasoning platform and realizing it both on a high-performance computing cluster and via “computing at home”

LarKC is funded as an Information and Communication technologies Project under European Commission 7th FP with a budget around 7.3M euros. It started April 2008 with a 3 years duration. LarKC was coordinated by UIBK, Austria

Ontotext’s Role

  • Semantic Integration for Early Clinical Development
  • Definition and validation of goals and metrics for the LarKC platform
