On 19 June 2023, KMi’s Scholarly Knowledge Modelling (SKM) team welcomed Alessia Pisu, a visiting PhD student from the University of Cagliari (IT). Over the next six months, Alessia will collaborate with Dr Francesco Osborne and Dr Angelo Salatino on developing a novel approach for the automatic generation of ontologies of research areas. Specifically, she will investigate the application of generative AI and Large Language Models for creating classification schemes for organising research articles.
Alessia has a background in the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence and with her PhD she is currently merging both worlds to improve workplace safety from multiple perspectives.
We are thrilled to have Alessia on board, and we look forward to working with her on tackling the challenge of the automatic generation of ontologies of research areas.
