Maria Vargas-VeraResearch Fellow
I received my PhD from The Department of Artificial Intelligence, Edinburgh University, Scotland UK.
I worked on the AKT Project (Advanced Knowledge Technologies). In particular, I worked in Information Extraction from text using domain specific templates, Ontology-Driven Question Answering, Automated Assessment of Student Essays and Semi-Automatic Construction of Ontologies from text.
I currently work in MCT http://www.computing.open.ac.uk/People/m.vargas-vera
Keys: Information Extraction, Question Answering, Automated Assessment, Semi-Automatic Construction of Ontologies from text and Ontology mapping.
