Current research focuses on distributed semantic services for Collective intelligence oriented applications (MindFlow, Agriculture Mass Warning Service, Skill2share, Learning by captation, Healing service) and social project management platform. It is a vertical research on advanced Model-based architecture platform including specific researches on collective intelligence and semantic management, advanced collaborative portals related to digital humanities and semantic digital library, ontological Topic Maps-based metadata services, and multi-lingual multi-cultural cross-disciplinary ontology services. Part of this research, Image-learning Ontology and Human Stress Ontology services have been created also as emerging key technology.
