X. Latest Research Positions and Projects

In this chapter I describe 20 last years of my research history related to my activities in University of Jyvaskyla.

During the period 1996-1999 I have been participating in several research activities in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems of University of Jyvaskyla due to research grants from CIMO and Academy of Finland. Research was supervised by Prof. Seppo Puuronen. The main goals of the research were to recognize and solve some problems taking place in knowledge acquisition and integration from multiple information/knowledge sources, context-sensitive reasoning and other techniques. Another group of goals was related to designing architecture of an integrated knowledge discovery management system, which enables integration of multiple discovery techniques forming a platform upon which different knowledge discovery applications can be build. During that period some innovative metamodeling tools, such as Semantic Metanetwork and Metapetrinet, were developed to support management of data and knowledge from distributed sources and processes.

 

I was working as Senior Researcher (since October 2000 until August 2001) in the Information Technology Research Institute of the University of Jyvaskyla in the Multimeetmobile (MMM) project which stands for multimedia, electronic commerce and transactional services for mobile computing. MMM research area is mobile computing and more specifically mobile E-Commerce and mobile Location-Based Services. MMM was mainly financed by the Finnish National Technology Agency (TEKES) under contracts 40599/99 and 40779/99. The MMM industry partners are Nokia Networks, Yomi Vision, and Hewlett Packard Finland. Via Information Technology Research Institute the project closely related to the MeT initiative as an Associate Member of it. This initiative was founded to establish a framework for secure mobile transactions, ensuring a consistent user experience independent of device, service and network. Ericsson, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia, Siemens, and Sony Corporation, has joined the MeT initiative. Project also linked to Wireless Information Management (WIM) research and training network involving researchers from six universities in Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden. My duties in this project were to design the model and its implementation plan concerning the transaction monitor for mobile electronic commerce based on integration of various e-services in mobile environment with appropriate ontological support.

I was acting as KNURE's team leader in the OntoWeb IST Network Project: “Ontology-based information exchange for knowledge management and electronic commerce”, which is Thematic Network of about 250 academic and industrial partners inside and outside Europe. The goal of the network is to bring together researchers and industrials promoting interdisciplinary work and strengthening the European influence on Semantic Web standardisation efforts.

I am also working in Agora Center in the InBCT project (Innovations in Business, Communication and Technology) as a part-time Senior Researcher since April 2002. The project will be realised in co-operation with companies engaged in business activities in the area. It is part of the ICT strategy program of Central Finland. The project is carried out with EAKR financing of TEKES. The objective of this project is to create new and to develop existing know-how in the area, and the transfer of this know-how to the operating companies. My duties in this project are to collect experience and to develop know-how related to Semantic Web area and then share know-how with industrial partners. Several presentations on this subject have been already made in numerous meetings with TeliaSonera, NOKIA, TietoEnator, Metso, Science Park and other companies. I have created “Industrial Ontologies” Group (see also the current leaflet of the group) from young researchers and became scientific head of it. Also useful research contacts have been established during that time with USA institutions: University of California, Berkeley (contact person Prof. John Canny) and Houston University (contact person Prof. Ioannis Kakadiaris). Since January 2004 I am managing the “Industrial Ontologies in Semantic Web” Chapter in InBCT Project. We are doing the Prototype of Semantic Search Facilitator for Internet-search engine (Google) that enhances performance of user interface for semantic search as well as enables software applications to automatically use semantic search facilities.

Also during year 2003, me and my group performed research of Semantic Web technology applications for development of web-service based information management systems, particularly in the field of industrial devices maintenance. Among research results obtained there are developed concepts of: OntoServ.Net, an Semantic Web based web-services integration environment for industrial maintenance; GUNGlobal Understanding eNvironment, a heterogeneous Semantic Web-based environment for agent-based resource management; OntoAdapter (semantic adapter/wrapper), a generic software component for connection of resources to semantic-enabled environments; OntoShell, a service platform for hierarchical service integration; Mobile Resource, a technical approach for delivering agent-based services in distributed environments.

Due to these results group has started a new Tekes Project: “Smart Resource: Proactive Self-Maintained Resources in Semantic Web” for the 2004 - April 2007 funding period. The research objective of the project is integration of most recent research results, standardization effort, features and benefits of Semantic Web, Web Services, Peer-to-Peer and Agent technologies into an integral resource management framework with resource-to-resource interaction aimed to improve maintenance of separate resources via information sharing and use of other resources as Web services. I am acting as Project Leader of this project. After successful reporting the first and the second project years, the application has been accepted also for project activities in 2006.  During 2004-2005 the SmartResource team has been designed a prototype platform for e-maintenance based on Semantic Web and agent technologies. The natural continuation of the SmartResource project from General Adaptation Framework (2004) and General Proactivity Framework (2005) is planned to be a General Networking Framework (GNF) in incoming 2006. The GNF considers opportunity of ontological modeling of business processes as integration of component behavioral models of various business actors (agents representing smart resources in the web) in such a way that this integration will constitute the behavioral model of an agent responsible for the “alliance” of the components. In August 2005, the project team started the series of international conferences: IFIP International Conference on Industrial Applications of Semantic Web. 

 

Industrial Ontologies Research Group is fruitfully cooperating also with Nokia. We have (February-May 2004) performed the project IdeaMentoring: “Refining Research Ideas to the New Business Opportunity” (NOKIA, Jyvaskyla Science Park). Our goal was to create new innovations; evaluate opportunities for commercialization at the early stages of innovation development; provide companies more business targeted technology development services. My role in this project was a team leader. We continued this project (named as IdeaMentoring-II) with Nokia also from August until November 2004 and have provided successful design and implementation of application for camera phones.

I am also a workpackage leader in SCOMA (“Scientific Computing and Optimization in Multidisciplinary Applications”) project funded by Tekes and Industrial partners. In this project my group has developed the prototype of the Semantic Web portal that provides advanced publishing, sharing, and reuse of the mathematical tools, the expertise and the knowledge distributed among the heterogeneous SCOMA parties.

I am a project leader in SWIMMER (Semantic Web Integrator for Maintenance Management of Enterprise Resources) project (January-November 2007) funded by Metso Automation and related to Semantic Web based application integration.

For the period May 2007 – December 2010, the Industrial Ontologies Group was working within Tekes project: UBIWARE: “Smart Semantic Middleware for Ubiquitous Computing”, where I was acting as a Project Leader. The UBIWARE solution was based on our innovative Global Understanding Environment concept.

In 2011 I am coordinating activities of the group within iSCOPE Tekes project and Cloud Software Tivit SHOK project.

I was the head of application development team and key expert in a Tempus/Tacis SCM Project (2007-2008) entitled “Towards Transparent Ontology-Based Accreditation” based on consortia of three European Universities from Finland, France and Spain, KNURE and Ukrainian Ministry of Education and Science. The project team is developing transparent procedure for accreditation of universities based on metadata and ontology provided on top of university reported performance. New techniques for ontology-based quality evaluation of various entities of the university education domain are being implemented. Within the project appropriate training has been provided for staff of universities and Ministry of Science and Education on using new transparent evaluation and accreditation system.

 

I am also a scientific head or/and consultant of the following projects supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and performed by Industrial Ontologies Group (Ukrainian Branch, AI Department, KNURE):

·         Ф15/456-2007: “Ontological Portal for Management and Evaluation of National Resources in Education and Science” (2007) (head);

·         219/0108U010139: “Developing of Web-oriented System to Support the Procedures of Accreditation and Licensing of Ukrainian Universities” (2007-2008) (head);

·         233/0109U001647: “Desigh of Semantic Query System for the National Accreditation and Licensing Database” (2009-2010) (head);

·         ІТ/534‑2009: “Development and implementation of a distributed architecture of an ontological portal of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine for reliable, safe and effective management and integration of national educational Resources” (2009-2010) (head);

·         243/0109U002497: “Design Methods and Models for the Social-Economic, Educational- Scientific Network Aiming its Integration into the European Environment” (2009-2011) (consultant);

·         265/xxxxU00xxxx: “Methods and Models for a Self-Managed Cloud Ecosystem” (2012-2014) (consultant).

In these projects, the tool (Ontology-Driven Educational Portal for accreditation, licensing, ranking, etc.) is being designed by Industrial Ontologies Group (KNURE branch) and it will be utilized as an ICT support for QA activities of universities and relevant governmental organizations in Ukraine and beyond. The portal is based on Semantic Web technologies and standards and assumes formalization of QA-related knowledge (including the one obtained automatically from external sources via SOA) towards QA- ontology.

Also I have been working on preliminary mapping of potentially threatening technologies as external expert in: FESTOS: “Foresight of Evolving Security Threats Posted by Emerging Technologies” (EU FP7) project (started in 2009).

 

Also I am coordinating development of the Semantic Portal for Quality Assurance in Education within TRUST project (2011-2013) funded by Tempus. One of the ongoing activities, which are actively utilizing the Executable Knowledge and Global Understanding Environment concepts of the Industrial Ontologies Group, is the EU Tempus-IV Project TRUST: Towards Trust in Quality Assurance Systems (516935-TEMPUS-1-2011). The overall goal of the TRUST project is to support the reforms of Ukrainian Higher Education (HE) by introducing a common, innovative, comprehensive and transparent Quality Assurance (QA) framework for all HE institutions (HEI) and QA organizations. The framework is supported by flexible and powerful instrument – Portal, which is work-in-progress, providing a set of solutions that enable, support and automate the activities, information flows and transactions within the ecosystem of individuals, HEIs, and various QA organizations. The core system is extended with mechanisms allowing taking into account flexible multidimensional and multicontextual quality indicators which will reflect constantly variable contexts (caused by political, economical, etc., reasons) at the different user-dependent levels (international, European, national, local) in all aspects of HEIs processes. These enable each HEI or national QA organization to develop own appropriate QA strategies, HEI evaluations, rankings, etc., and provide capabilities for self-proof of decisions. Provided IT-support of QA enables: machine-processable QA-related information; management of globally distributed and heterogeneous QA-related data collections and Web-services; QA-related automated knowledge transfer through intelligent information retrieval, extraction, sharing, reuse and integration.

 

I am also Management Committee member in ICT COST Action IC1302 (KEYSTONE: Semantic Keyword-based Search on Structured Data Sources”). This action will contribute to the paradigm of searching within structural data in a simple way for the end users. KEYSTONE proposes to join synergies from several disciplines, such as semantic data management, the semantic web, information retrieval, artificial intelligence, machine learning, user interaction, service science, service design, and natural language processing.

 

I am actively working on the Digital-Hospital-related issues within the Tekes + IBM Watson projects: Value from Public Health Data with Cognitive Computing and Watson Health Cloud Finland funded by Tekes (2016-2017).

Title of the project: Towards Transparent Ontology-Based Accreditation

The specific objective of the project is to improve the accreditation, licensing and ranking procedures for Ukrainian universities towards transparency using new ontology-based information technology, to train the target groups of Ministry officials and University administrators, to develop the transparent documentation and online distance training system for fast retraining of personnel. As a result of the project, the new improved approach for accreditation, licensing and ranking of Ukrainian universities will be introduces, technologically and methodically supported, implemented, verified and supplied by trained staff.

 

EU Tempus Tacis Compact Project UM_CP-20560-1999 (1999-2001)

Title of the project: Development of New Framework for the M.Sc. Thesis Work

The objective of the project is to strengthen the links between partner universities, western universities and industry as contribution to the reform of the Higher Education system in the partner country.

The specific objective of the project is to develop new framework for management of students’ M.Sc. thesis work and the procedure of assigning the M.Sc. degree to students in order to: guarantee the academic independence for students; evaluate theoretical and applied thesis; provide credit-based evaluation for internal courses, taken at the partner university; provide credit-based evaluation for practical placements of students; allow credit transfer from other universities; assign the M.Sc. degree under the credit-based framework.

 

Joint Master Student Exchange Program on Mobile Computing (2000 - )

Brief description: The program was started in late 1999 on the basis of the agreement between the Department of Artificial Intelligence (KNURE), and the Faculty of Information Technologies (University of Jyväskylä). According to the Program a group of 40 students (exchange candidates) was selected in KNURE in early January 2000. Special evening Spring semester was organised in spring 2000 (and then annually) where these students passed ten special courses in addition to their main studies in Ukraine. These courses partially covered the gap between the Ukrainian curriculum and the Finnish curriculum. To facilitate course recognition and credit transfer the Ukrainian type of diploma supplement was developed towards ECTS credit transfer system. The group of 22 Ukrainian students has started and already got their degrees in University of Jyväskylä according to Mobile Computing line. Since that another group of 15 students from KNURE has arrived to Jyväskylä for studies in 2001, 10 in 2002, 12 in 2003. The average level of graduation for these students is highest among other international students in the university.

 

Joint Master Student Exchange Program on Artificial Intelligence (2000 - )

Brief description: The program was started in late 1999 on the basis of the agreement between the Department of Artificial Intelligence (KNURE), and Department of Artificial Intelligence (Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam). According to the Program first trial group of 4 students has already started their studies in Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam according to Artificial Intelligence line. Since that every year 2-4 students are nominated for studies in Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam.
