New GSLIS faculty member <a href="/people/faculty/ludaesch">Professor Bertram Ludäscher</a> will present, "Euler: A Logic-Based Toolkit for Aligning and Reconciling Multiple Taxonomic Perspectives."</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong></p><p>Biological classification and phylogenetic inferences often need to be updated and revised in light of new information. Such taxonomic revisions are usually done by domain experts who relate and align concepts of previously published taxonomies. Usually two (or more) taxonomies T1, T2, and a set of expert articulations A between them (i.e., set constraints relating taxa from T1, T2) are given. The goal is then to find the "best merge" of T1 + T2 + A; ideally a single, unique result taxonomy T3. We have developed Euler/X, an open source toolkit to solve such taxonomy alignment problems using a number of underlying reasoning engines (e.g., we use X in {FO, ASP, RCC}, denoting First-Order logic, Answer Set Programming and Region Connection Calculus reasoners, respectively.) Euler can detect and diagnose inconsistent inputs and then suggest repairs, i.e., minimal changes to the user-provided input articulations that eliminate the logical inconsistency. On the other hand, if the user input is ambiguous, multiple possible merge results for T3 (i.e., multiple "possible worlds") are obtained and presented to the user. I will present ongoing work to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of both inconsistency repair and ambiguity reduction. The Euler toolkit also provides a nice illustration of the many faces and uses of provenance in practical data analysis tools. Time allowing, I will also give a brief overview of other related projects, e.g., to develop a data curation toolkit for biodiversity data.</p><p><strong>About the Speaker:</strong></p><p>Bertram Ludäscher is a professor at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS). Prior to joining the iSchool at Illinois he was a professor at the Department of Computer Science and the Genome Center at the University of California, Davis. His research interests span the whole data to knowledge life-cycle, from modeling and design of databases and workflows, to knowledge representation and reasoning. His current research focus includes both theoretical foundations of provenance and practical applications, in particular to support automated data quality control and workflow-supported data curation. He is one of the founders of the open source Kepler scientific workflow system, and a member of the DataONE leadership team, focusing on data and workflow provenance. Until 2004 Ludäscher was a research scientist at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and an adjunct faculty at the CSE Department at UC San Diego. He received his MS (Dipl.-Inform) in computer science from the Technical University of Karlsruhe (now: K.I.T.) and his PhD (Dr.rer.nat.) from the University of Freiburg, both in Germany.</p><p><strong>About the CIRSS Seminar Series:</strong></p><p>The aim of the CIRSS Seminar Series is to provide a relaxed, no-prep venue for sharing our current research by presenting reruns (or previews) of our recent conference presentations, and presentations from visiting scholars. All CIRSS faculty and student affiliates are welcome to present, and the sessions are open to the entire campus community.
