Current research focuses on distributed semantic services for Collective intelligence oriented applications (Cooking Recipe without Border, 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.
