    • Commonsense aspects of buying and selling 

      Akman, V.; Ersan, M. (Taylor & Francis Inc., 1996)
      We describe an experimental approach toward implementing a commonsense "microtheory" for buying and selling. Our prototype system characterizes how intelligent agents hold items and money, how they buy and sell items, and ...
    • Design and evaluation of an ontology based information extraction system for radiological reports 

      Soysal, E.; Cicekli, I.; Baykal, N. (Pergamon Press, 2010)
      This paper describes an information extraction system that extracts and converts the available information in free text Turkish radiology reports into a structured information model using manually created extraction rules ...
    • Design and implementation of a system for mapping text meaning representations to f-structures of Turkish sentences 

      Temizsoy, Selman Murat (Bilkent University, 1997)
      Interlingua approach to Machine Translation (MT) aims to achieve the translation task in two independent steps. First, the meanings of source language sentences are represented in a language-independent artificial language. ...
    • Design and implementation of a verb lexicon and verb sense disambiguator for Turkish 

      Yılmaz, Okan (Bilkent University, 1994)
      The lexicon has a crucial role in all natural language processing systems and has special importance in machine translation systems. This thesis presents the design and implementation of a verb lexicon and a verb sense ...
    • Diverse consequences of algorithmic probability 

      Özkural, Eray (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2013)
      We reminisce and discuss applications of algorithmic probability to a wide range of problems in artificial intelligence, philosophy and technological society. We propose that Solomonoff has effectively axiomatized the field ...
    • Evaluation of ontology enhancement tools 

      Spiliopoulou, M.; Schaal, M.; Müller, R. M.; Brunzel, M. (Springer, 2006)
      Mining algorithms can enhance the task of ontology establishment but methods are needed to assess the quality of their findings. Ontology establishment is a long-term interactive process, so it is important to evaluate the ...
    • Natural language querying for video databases
