The National Science Foundation (NSF) has approved seed funding for an industry-university Semantic Computing (SC) consortium, which currently involves UC-Irvine, UC-Los Angeles and UC-San Diego and is inviting companies, other universities and individuals to join. The collaborative project, supported by the NSF Industry & University Cooperative Research Program (I/UCRC), will encourage universities and industry to work together on developing technologies that allow users to search, understand and connect resources (including texts, images, videos, devices, tools, people) for problem solving based on semantics (meaning, intentions). The goal is to facilitate the transition of the Internet into its next generation and develop new and more efficient business models to stimulate, strengthen, and grow the economy. An important outcome of the Consortium is a Semantic Problem Solving Engine (SPSE, or "Semantic Machine") which is an integration of the resources from all domains.
This talk will introduce the operations of the Consortium, the architecture of the SPSE, how companies, universities and individuals can join or be affiliated with the Consortium and the SPSE, and how everyone can benefit.
