Welcome to the KASTLE Lab
The Knowledge and Semantic Technologies (KASTLE) Laboratory was founded in 2022 at Wright State University by Dr. Cogan Shimizu.
KASTLE Lab’s mission is to
- develop fundamental advances in knowledge engineering, especially as they pertain to knowledge graphs;
- explore the intersection between knowledge engineering, domain science, and machine/deep learning for the purpose of accelerating science and promoting data discovery and transdisciplinary research;
- understand the bridge between human-conceptualization and machine-encoding to better align and design AI systems; and
- advance the state of open curriculum in knowledge engineering and semantic technologies.
- Accepting Independent Studies, Master’s Theses, Research Projects, LSAMP scholars, and more. Please see the recruiting page for more details.
- Seeking students for DAGSI topics:
- Oct 2023 – Brandon Dave gives an invited talk to the International Semantic Intelligence Conference 2023 titled “Towards Understanding the Impact of Schema on Knowledge Graph Embeddings”.
- Sep 2023 – KASTLE Lab wins [1.5MM award from the National Science Foundation], as the Education Gateway to the Proto-OKN. For more information, visit the project website
- Aug 2023 – Alexis Ellis, as a part of the KASTLE lab, is awarded $24.5K from AFRL/SOCHE and $15K to research how symbols can be used to semantically represent complex AI systems for the greater good.
