My Red Alert 3 Strategies

After, Red Alert 2 I’m getting familiar with Red Alert 3 (RA3) and enjoying the game when I win Japanese forces. My favorite nation in the game is Russians. Yes, I like to hear the sound “Kirov Reporting!”. My main strategy in the game is;

  1. Barracks
  2. Train soldiers (mixed)
  3. Power Planet
  4. 2 Ore Mines
  5. War Factory
  6. Super Reactor

I always follow my opponent’s movements and decide how to strike. It may air, ground or super weapon attack.

I’m not just playing games but reading papers on machine learning techniques which are used in ontology learning for semantic web. Also, I’m preparing a schedule for 2009 conferences and our plan is to have something valuable till April so, we can submit it this year’s events.

Ontology Learning

I blogged before about semantic web research topics which I’ve been interested in. While I have a little free time I planned to focus on ontology learning. I know it is a big issue and cannot be handled in a tiny time span. However, at least, I can write a review on ontology learning techniques such as machine learning and machine language translation techniques that would be useful to decide to go on this subject.

I’m still trying to make a decision to apply this internship or not.

I’m Free For a While

I woke up at 4:30 am last night and it is about to 2:00 am. Yes, It makes a lot of time. I was dealing with graduate studies for last two weeks and I’ve completed most important part this night. I made a paper submission to local conference in Turkey which will be held at Harran Uni. Only a few final exams left which are not a big issue to handle.So, I’m free for a while and my plan is to complete the following todo list:

Trying to figure out Is it possible to say “free for a while” while having this list.

Why didn’t I quit and sleep instead of blogging?

Semantic Web ~ Web 3.0

Web 2.0 makes our life easier day by day and lets us to access any information whenever and wherever we are with simple internet clients.

On the other hand, user contributed data (social media & networks) grows enormously so, we have to spend our time  by eliminate unnecessary data and pick up useful ones. There are two ways to handle this situation; intelligent applications or meaningful data. When we consider development and maintaining costs intelligent applications would be a failure. Giving meaning to data seems more applicable, at this point semantic web plays the role.

By definition;

Semantic web is the extension of the current web which delivers extra information
in well formed machine readable structure.

Web 2.0 is the new way of delivering information with user friendly designs, web services,
social networks, blogs, videos … etc.

Web 3.0 is the evolution of the Web 2.0.

Actually, Web 3.0 is going to be integration of social media with semantic web; adding semantic structure to user contributed data.

So, if you have machine readable data, smart agents can be developed to handle daily tasks you have to do. For example, if you need to buy a book, let it to be done by your agent.  It will seek and find the cheapest book and give an order for you. It is not only for machines, it might change the way we surf the web. For example, semantic web for e-government projects aim to provide all necessary information in one place (website).

However, it might have some issues like security and privacy. Also, semantic structures will result in the rise of agents and new types of spams.

Semantic Web research areas have been increasing and spreading and more companies investing for theses technologies. I hope I can take part in these research projects and develop something useful.

Possible Semantic Web Research Topics

I’ve tried to predict semantic web hot topics and feature trends in my recent posts.  Plan was eliminate some of topics according to my interests and make a decision during this holiday. First part of plan worked well but, unexpected things happened; I got cold and spent all my holiday (1 week) in the bed. If I hadn’t been sick I was going to search these 4 topics;

  1. Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (e.g., HLT and ML approaches)
  2. Semantics in P2P Computing
  3. Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Science, e-Health, e-Culture, e-Government, e-Learning and other application domains
  4. Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web

We’ve decided these topics during the meeting before the holiday with my advisers  from both ex and new university. In my opinion these are more promising and familiar to me but I still can change it whatever I like and  any help will be applicable.

Tomorrow night, I will be leaving from Konya and will be at the office Monday morning in İstanbul.
