Knowledge Discovery

W. Lam, H. Meng and J. Yu

This project focuses on automated or semi-automated learning from data and texts, and the transformation of learned theories into some knowledge representation formalisms. We expect to develop the theory and techniques for partial or full automation of the time-consuming process of expert knowledge elicitation through automatic knowledge discovery or learning from data. We aim not only at the accuracy and effectiveness of the learned information, but also at improving the level and depth of knowledge discovered.
