Scientific Knowledge Engineering @ ISI

ABOUT

Scientific Knowledge Engineering ('SKE') involves combining ontology/knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence, the semantic web, machine reading and science informatics techniques to support the development of next-generation scientific informatics infrastructure. At ISI, this work was lead by Gully Burns, who joined the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in December 2018. This page is left as an archival record of work performed at ISI.

Our work has included development of:

The SciKnowEngine 'swirl' logo represents the Cycle of Scientific Investigation as a group of combined threads that resembles a breaking ocean wave. The color scheme is derived from Van Gogh's Starry Night.
