The Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) at Wright State University performs world-class research on translating information to meaning, towards the vision of Computing for Human Experience. The well-funded center consists of 13 labs and approximately 100 multidisciplinary researchers, including 15 faculty members and more than 50 Ph.D. students from Computer Science (i.e., machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, knowledge representation, databases, data mining, bioinformatics, and visualization), biomedical sciences, health informatics, and cognitive science.
The center's current focus is on Web 3.0 topics, including the Semantic/Social/Sensor Webs, Web of Things, and Ubiquitous-Mobile-Cloud Computing, with varied applications such as disaster management and diplomacy (e.g., social media-based emergency coordination, water diplomacy), e-Sciences with a focus on health-care and life sciences (metabolomics, human parasite research, extra-medical use of painkillers, reducing hospital readmissions, cardiology data mining, and literature-based knowledge discovery), and defense/intelligence (warfighter situational awareness, sociocultural-behavioral analysis, human effectiveness). In addition to competitive federal funds (NIH, NSF, AFOSR, AFRL, etc.), its faculty members have received recent innovation, challenge, and/or faculty awards from MSR, IBM Research, Google, and HP Labs. Additionally, they maintain strong industry collaborations. Kno.e.sis’ outcomes have placed the university among the top in WWW, and its graduates are highly sought after and successful whether they choose to pursue a career in academia or industry.
