MEDical figure retrIEVAL, dubbed MEDIEVAL is a Web application where users can search for PubMED Central (PMC) figures by entering a text query to be matched against the caption of each figure. MEDIEVAL allows filtering the results by modality, by letting the users select the modalities they are interested in. Figures are sorted according to the similarity of their caption with the text query. Users can see the image and caption of each retrieved figure and navigate to the PMC article containing it.


Hatebusters is based on a European Union agreement with the four largest social network providers (YouTube, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter) and also the efforts of the latter to control the content in their platforms, so as to abide by Terms of Use. According to the agreement of the aforementioned, any content which is reported has to be reviewed by their moderation teams within 24 hours. Hatebusters is trying to achieve a gamification of the reporting process, by predicting comments' hate score and prompting users with the most hateful ones.

DEiXTo (or ΔEiXTo) is a powerful web data extraction tool that is based on the W3C Document Object Model (DOM). It allows users to create highly accurate "extraction rules" (wrappers) that describe what pieces of data to scrape from a web page. DEiXTo consists of two separate, standalone components:

  • GUI DEiXTo, an MS Windows™ application implementing a graphical user interface that is used to manage extraction rules (build, test, fine-tune, save and modify), and
  • DEiXTo Executor, a stand-alone extraction rule executor (command line utility) that massively and automatically applies extraction rules on targeted HTML pages and produces structured output in a variety of formats.

DEiXTo can contend with a wide range of web sites with high precision and recall, since it provides the user with an arsenal of features aiming at the construction of well-engineered extraction rules. Wrappers built with GUI DEiXTo can be scheduled to run automatically providing periodic and automated access to resources of interest, saving users a lot of time, energy and repetitive effort.

DLEJena is a Java library that implements the OWL 2 RL/RDF rules using template rules based on the Jena Rete-based rule engine and on the Pellet DL reasoner. The Pellet DL reasoner is used to perform TBox reasoning over the loaded ontologies, whereas the forwardRete rule engine of Jena is used to apply an instantiated version of ABox-related rules. DLEJena is based on the DLE framework and it is capable of implementing an arbitrary number of ABox entailment rules based on the TBox inferencing capabilities of Pellet. The current distribution of DLEJena comes with a predefined set of 36 OWL 2 RL/RDF template rules that can be extended.

EMERALD is an implementation framework for interoperable reasoning among agents in the Semantic Web, by using third-party trusted reasoning services. The advantage is that every agent can exchange its position justification arguments with any other agent, without the need for all agents to conform to the same kind of rule paradigm or logic; the receiving agent can use an external reasoning service to grasp the semantics of the rule set, namely the set of the results of the rule set. EMERALD is built on-top of the JADE multi-agent system. In EMERALD, reasoning services are "wrapped" by an agent interface, called the Reasoner, allowing other Ias to contact them via ACL messages. The Reasoner can launch an associated reasoning engine, in order to perform inference and provide results.

OWLS-SLR (SLR stands for Structural and Logic-based Reasoning) is a semantic Web service matchmaker written in Java that makes use of OWL-S Profiles. It follows the abstract Web service discovery approach, performing matchmaking based on inputs, outputs and non-functional properties. The matchmaking algorithm exploits not only the ontology subsumption hierarchy, but also the structural knowledge of the domain ontologies, such as sibling relationships among concepts.

PORSCE II is comprised by a planning component, a concept relevance module for discovering similarities among OWL ontology concepts, a visual component, and a service replacement component, which cooperate to achieve the goal of automated semantic web service composition. The planning module is responsible for expressing the web service composition problem as a planning problem and exporting it to the standard language for planning domain and problem description, PDDL. In addition, it cooperates with independent external PDDL-compliant planning systems (LPG-td, JPlan), which search for composition plans by matching OWL-S profile input and output parameters, and evaluates the produced plans, in order to use this evaluation when assessing the quality of each complex service. The concept relevance module exploits knowledge obtained from reasoning over ontologies to semantically enhance the input and output requirements of the web services, by including semantically related ontology concepts based on different notions of concept similarity.

S2REd is a syntactic-semantic text-based RuleML editor. It is a full-fledged textual XML editor that features: syntax highlighting, spell checking, brace matching, code block coloring, pretty-printing, well-formedness & validation checking. Nevertheless, S2REd is more than an XML editor. Via its STM (Semantic Tag Mapping) window, the user can manually define the correspondence between the tags of the loaded vocabulary and the various concepts of the rule base. In essence, STM provides a meta-modeling facility for generating schemas over various RuleML language versions. In reality, the meta-model is a specification of a domain-specific modeling language.

SWIM is a knowledge-based system for building Web Service Domains, which are collections or communities of related Web Services that are mediated and/or aggregated by a single Web Service, called the Mediator Service that functions as a proxy for them. When a requestor sends a message to the Mediator Service our system will select one or more of the Web Services to dispatch the message and will fuse the results returned by the selected services. The selection of Web services and the algorithm for fusing the results is defined by the administrator of the Service Domain using a declarative rule language, called X-DEVICE. SWIM system offers services for registering new Web Services and Service Domains. The main advantage of the SWIM system, compared to similar proposed approaches is that it allows the easy definition of arbitrary service selection strategies using a logic-based language. Furthermore, it goes beyond the mere conditional re-routing of Web Service requests by allowing combination of results of multiple Web Services leading to a simple logic-based form for Web Service composition.

Tomaco (Tool for Matching and Composition) is a web application for Semantic Web Service matchmaking and composition. It integrates its own, novel set of matching strategies, tailored to the SAWSD/WSDL universal standards, that ranked high on state-of-the-art comparison on both effectiveness and performance. Strategies can be applied on a dynamic repository of existind or user-contributed service collections and ontologies. Users are able to register to upload content and perform customized experiments, choosing between strategies, thresholds and parameters. Results are also accompanied by rating justification. For composition TOMACO employes a Blackbox AI-planning method.
