About Us

Knowledge Management Group at Gdansk University of Technology is a research and development group focusing on areas connected with knowledge and information management. Our priority is to develop a suite of tools and methods allowing for practical handling of large quantities of information held in WWW resources. In this way the group of young researchers, working under the lead of Prof. Krzysztof Goczyla, hopes to aid the Semantic Web idea to come true.

Our group recently initated NKEI - New Knowledge Engineering Initative. You may find more information here.

Our flagship product is the KaSeA system. This system is developed especially for processing Semantic Web-compliant pieces of knowledge and reasoning over them under assumption that information about large numbers of individual objects has to be kept and processed. KaSeA has been deployed within PIPS system - e-health system aiming at improving healthiness of lifestyle of people in whole European Community. We invite you to read our publications explaining methods and techniques exploited in KaSeA.

Members

Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła, PhD, DSc

kris@eti.pg.gda.pl

Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła obtained his PhD and DSc degrees in Computer Science from Gdansk University of Technology, Poland, in 1976 and 1999, respectively. He currently teaches software engineering and databases at Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics of this University. His current research interests include databases (especially non-relational data models), object-oriented software engineering, and data and knowledge management. He is the author of a novel indexing technique in non-relational databases called partial-order trees. He is an author and co-author of ca. 100 papers and 4 books. He also took part in development of computer applications in the area of dedicated databases and data processing systems.

Piotr Piotrowski, PhD

piopio@eti.pg.gda.pl

Piotr Piotrowski works at the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics at Gdańsk Universtity of Technology, Poland. His doctoral research project, supervised by Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła focuses on exploring methods of mapping ontologies into various forms of data (e.g. relational or object-oriented) more usable by the user in the target environment. During his scientific work he developed the methods of creation of Data and Object Views.

Aleksander Waloszek, PhD

alwal@eti.pg.gda.pl

Aleksander Waloszek is a research fellow at the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics at Gdańsk Universtity of Technology, Poland. His doctoral thesis, supervised by Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła, is titled "Hierarchical contextualization of DL Knowledge Bases". In the thesis he focuses on exploring methods of ontology modularization. During his scientific work he developed the original approach called hierarchical contextualization, for recursive division of DL ontologies. Examination of properties of the approach and its development is one of the main areas of his thesis.

Wojciech Waloszek, PhD

wowal@eti.pg.gda.pl

Wojciech Waloszek is an assistant professor of at the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics at Gdańsk Universtity of Technology, Poland. His doctoral research project, supervised by Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła, is titled "Structural representation of Description Logics Ontologies". In the thesis he focuses on exploring methods of internal representation of ontologies. During his scientific work he developed the original approach called knowledge cartography, for storing and processing ontological data. Examination of properties of the approach and its development is one of the main areas of his thesis. His scientific interests also encompass data mining and software engineering. In his academic work he teaches courses covering those subjects.

Teresa Zawadzka, PhD

tegra@eti.pg.gda.pl

Teresa Zawadzka is an assistant professor at the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics at Gdańsk Universtity of Technology, Poland. Her scientific work, supervised by Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła, entitled "Methods of ontology integration based on Description Logics", focuses on advanced methods of knowledge integration. The main course of the work is to develop effective algorithm of processing queries in distributed knowledge environment and algorithms for ontology merging with the use of cartographic knowledge representation. Her scientific interests also encompass knowledge modelling, trust issues in knowledge bases and knowledge base access interfaces. In her academic work she teaches subjects related to databases and knowledge management issues.

Michał Zawadzki, PhD

michawa@eti.pg.gda.pl

Michał Zawadzki works at Lufthansa, Poland. His scientific work, supervised by Prof. Krzysztof Goczyła, entitled "Methods of representing and processing knowledge with different trust levels in Description Logics ontologies", focuses on advanced methods of trusted knowledge storage and retrieval. The main course of the work is to develop effective methods of modelling trust with the use of cartographic knowledge representation and algorithms of processing queries in not fully trustworthy environment. His scientific interests also encompass knowledge modelling, software engineering and knowledge base access interfaces. In his academic work he teaches subjects related to software engineering and knowledge management issues.
