Keywords: semantic, expert knowledge, labelling, segmentation.

Abstract: using semantic to drive data manipulation is an efficient way to integrate expert knowledge into the process. Ontologies are a useful and efficient way to describe semantic.

Main activity

I'm working since 2014 on an original approach to drive the mesh segmentation using expert knowledge, via ontologies and a dedicated expert system. This research activity is a way to connect my old work on ontologies and the geometry processing.
