Funded Projects

SDA is currently funded with the following regional, national and European research projects.

Big Data EuropeBig Data Europe

Big Data Europe will undertake the foundational work for enabling European companies to build innovative multilingual products and services based on semantically interoperable, large-scale, multi-lingual data assets and knowledge, available under a variety of licenses and business models.

DL-Learner is a tool for learning concepts in Description Logics (DLs) from user-provided examples. Equivalently, it can be used to learn classes in OWL ontologies from selected objects. The goal of DL-Learner is to support knowledge engineers in constructing knowledge and learning about the data they created.  Read more about DL-Learner


The ultimate goal of SML-Bench is to foster research in machine learning from structured data as well as increase the reproducibility and comparability of algorithms in that area. This is important, since a) the preparation of machine learning tasks in that area involves a significant amount of work and b) there are hardly any cross comparisions across languages as this requires data conversion processes.

DeFacto (Deep Fact Validation) is an algorithm for validating statements by finding confirming sources for it on the web. It takes a statement (such as “Jamaica Inn was directed by Alfred Hitchcock”) as input and then tries to find evidence for the truth of that statement by searching for information in the web.  Read more about DeFacto
