    Kno.e.sis and the Center for Interventions, Treatment and Addictions Research (CITAR) have been awarded an interdisciplinary NIH-R21 grant to address the prescription drug abuse epidemic, recently acknowledged by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The project, named PREDOSE for PREscription Drug abuse Online-Surveillance and Epidemiology, will combine text mining and semantic web technologies to automate information extraction and sentiment analysis using social media (tweets, web forums). The overall goal is to assist qualitative researchers with drug abuse surveillance and epidemiology using timely and relevant information present in large amounts of dynamic User-Generated Content (UGC). Leading the research effort are Dr. Raminta Daniulaityte of (CITAR) and Prof. Amit Sheth, LexisNexis Ohio Eminent Scholar and the director of Kno.e.sis.

    February 19, 2010 Ohio Center of Excellence
    On February 19, Governor Ted Strickland and Eric Fingerhut, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, recognized Wright State University’s Center of Excellence in Knowledge-Enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) as an Ohio Center of Excellence. Kno.e.sis uses the latest technology in semantic computing and Web 3.0 to translate massive amounts of data into meaningful information. Example uses of the Center's research include making sense out of millions of Tweets related to an event such as an earthquake, analyzing billions of observations from thousands of sensors to study a storm or a military mission, or integrating many databases for streamlining access to medical records. Dr. Amit Sheth, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and LexisNexis Ohio Eminent Scholar, serves as the Center’s Director.

    Kno.e.sis has one of the largest academic research groups in Semantic Web/3.0 that is pioneering new techniques in knowledge- and semantic-enabled computing. Its research leads to development of knowledge services for increasing competitiveness of industry in the region and the state, including IT/data management (social and sensor Webs, services/cloud computing), e-Science (esp. bio/health sciences) and defense. Center's fifteen faculty members have published over 1,000 papers and have over 2,000 citations per faculty (well over 30,000 total), support 45 researchers (mainly PhD students), direct 12 labs, have approx. $8.7 million in research funds and have received $45 million in research support.

Dr. Carole Goble, winner of the first Jim Gray eScience award, presented the keynote address titled “”. The workshop attracted several prominent computer science researchers including Susan Davidson (UPenn), Deborah McGuiness (RPI), Yolanda Gill (USC/ISI), and David DeRoure (USouthampton) among others. The proceeding and talks from the workshop can be found here. Satya Sahoo also attended the ?th International Conference on Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics (ODBSE09), where he presented his research paper describing work with the University of Georgia on addressing the four aspects of managing scientific provenance information in parasite research – provenance capture, representation, storage, and analysis.

    November 14, 2009 Ajith Ranabahu, doctoral student in the Kno.e.sis Center, presented his research at the 24 th OOPSLA conference.
    Ajith Ranabahu, third year doctoral student in the Kno.e.sis center, presented the research in Cloud computing interoperability and Service Level Agreements during the Cloud Computing design workshop at the 24 th OOPSLA conference in Orlando FL, last October. During the regular conference he co-presented his work at IBM research with Dr. Michael Maximilien. He also demonstrated the IBM Altocumulus platform during the demo sessions. Ajith concentrated on the interoperability and homogenization of Cloud computing platforms using a middleware, a pioneering research effort lead by Dr Michael Maximilien from IBM Research. Ajiths work in the summer of 2009 at IBM Research made Altocumulus a reality. IBM Altocumulus is a middleware capable of unified deployment and management of cloud computing applications. It has been very successful both in terms of research breakthroughs and business value and the Altocumulus technology is being transferred to IBM's software groups. Ajith is also one of the official bloggers for ACM and published several high profile blog posts on OOPSLA during the conference.

(www.bioforensics.com) to perform objective and independent reviews of forensic DNA evidence in criminal trials. Dr. Raymer and his colleagues have published numerous papers on the use of forensic DNA evidence. In the case "District Attorneys for the Third Judicial District et al. v. Osbourne", Justice Alito cites a 2003 paper, co-authored by Drs. Raymer, Doom, and Krane, describing some of the technical, scientific, and statistical issues salient to the analysis and interpretation of forensic DNA.

    June 15, 2009 Kno.e.sis wins one more innovation award from Industry
    Prof. Amit Sheth has been selected to receive a 2009 HP Labs Innovation Research Award, a program designed to create opportunities for colleges, universities and research institutes around the world to conduct breakthrough collaborative research with HP. The project ”Model Generation and Model Extension for Information and Knowledge Management” will develop techniques for guided search and browsing as well as classification and selection of information to improve information processing and knowledge sharing. Recently Kno.e.sis Center has received innovation awards and gifts from major companies such as IBM, Microsoft, HP and Google. Prof. Shaojun Wang received an award in 2008 from Google for his research on "Syntactic, Semantic and Lexical Language Models." Prof. Sheth received Microsoft Beyond Search Award (2008) for "Chatter, Intent, Good Karma, and Contextual Advertisements in Social Networks" and IBM Innovation Award (2007) for "Infrastructure for Summarizing Casual, Unstructured Text." A key to Kno.e.sis Center's collaboration with Industry and such awards is the important role of its PhD students who typically intern at top industry research labs. These internships lead to continuing collaborations when the intern is back to Kno.e.sis, understanding of challenging problems and access to real world data. Prof. Sheth credits Meena Nagarajan's work for the awards from IBM Research and Microsoft Research, and similarly credits Christopher Thomas' collaboration with HP labs for the latest award and earlier gifts.
