Group aims to enhance the use of semantic tech for local industry

on 03 Ogos 2010.

MIMOS, the premier applied research centre in frontier technologies, has established two Centres of Excellence (CoE) in Semantic Technology – one each in Sarawak and Sabah – in collaboration with local and foreign universities and industry players.

The CoE is aimed at enhancing the utilisation of ontology and Semantic Web technologies to automate the collection, modelling, organisation and retrieval of knowledge.

Mimos president and chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah said the CoE in Sarawak, located at Unimas, was known as the Centre of Excellence in Semantic Technology and Augmented Reality while the one in Universiti Malaysia Sabah was known as Centre of Excellence in Semantic Agents.

He said this at the launch of Knowledge Technology Week 2010 themed Artificial Intelligence: From Information to Intelligence held in conjunction with the National Information and Communications Technology month.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari officiated at the launch of the event from July 27 until July 30 in Unimas near Kuching.

More than 30 speakers from leading research centres and business ventures from six countries – Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Britain and the United States – gathered to discuss Artificial Intelligence (AI) and semantic technology research and development.

Mimos, in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence in Semantic Technology and Augmented Reality, Faculty of Cognitive Sciences and Human Development and Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology of Unimas, jointly organised the event.

The Knowledge Technology Week is a key platform for the AI and Semantic Technology research communities from around the world to share and exchange ideas and experiences.

The event consists of three conferences, three workshops and nine tutorials. Two of the conferences are home-grown namely Malaysian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Technology and Knowledge Engineering Conference.

The International Conference on Conceptual Structures is an international event held for the first time in Asia this year.

Abdul Wahab said that Mimos’ semantic-based technology platform had the potential to spearhead Sarawak’s economic and social transformation in line with the 12 national key economic areas identified in the recently unveiled 10th Malaysia Plan, which was designed to transform Malaysia into a high-income economy.

Mimos, he added, was focusing on transferring its semantic-based technology platforms to local industries in line with its mission to pioneer information and communications technology towards growing globally competitive indigenous industries.
