The ATRACO Project is a prototype implementation of a trusted ambient ecology system that runs and manages activity spheres in an Ambient Intelligence Space. Activity spheres are realized by automatically discovering, selecting, and adapting smart devices (artefacts) existing in the space, according to user's preferences, customs, and activities. OWL ontologies are used for modeling user profile, devices, activities, and goal descriptions. Abstract plans are bound to specific devices, methods, and values through semantic matching.
DKPro Core is a collection of software components for natural language processing (NLP) based on the Apache UIMA framework. Many powerful and state-of-the-art NLP components are already freely available in the NLP research community. New and improved components are being developed and released continuously. The components cover the whole range of NLP-related processing tasks. DKPro Core provides wrappers for such third-party tool as well as original NLP components. DKPro Core builds heavily on uimaFIT which allows for rapid and easy development of NLP processing pipelines.
