Research Fellow
Maria Vargas-Vera Photograph

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.
