A boxology of hybrid learning & reasoning systems

Knowledge Representation languages like OWL and RDF have allowed a massive scale-up in the size of knowledge-bases, up to millions of facts and rules, opening the door to combining knowledge-bases with Machine Learning, which will be the topic of his presentation.

Among other things, he was one of the designers of the knowledge representation language OWL, which is now in wordwide use by academia and industry worldwide.
