About Me

I am PhD student at the Department of Informatics of the University of Zurich. I am a member of the Attempto group that has developed the controlled natural language Attempto Controlled English (ACE). I am working on the further development of ACE and on the realization of tools that use ACE as a knowledge representation language.


AceWiki is a semantic wiki using the controlled natural language ACE. We try to solve the problems that most of the existing semantic wikis do not support expressive ontology languages and that they are often hard to understand for people who are not familiar with the technical terms of logic and ontologies.

AceRules is a forward-chaining rule system based on ACE, i.e. the rules and the answer sets are written in ACE. It supports multiple semantics (called 'modes'): courteous logic programs, stable models, and stable models with strong negation.
