Description

The introduction of the semantic web makes it possible to not only search for information, but also to synthesize it to solve a task. Researchers at the LIA have developed new methodologies based on constraint satisfaction for implementing personal agents that search and synthesize information for particular tasks. In this project, the student will implement some of the functionalities required in such an architecture, in particular the mediator that provides ontology-based translation from problems to information services.
