My name is Michael Cooney and I am 22 years old. I am an undergraduate student at Wright State University majoring in Computer Science and I plan to graduate in 2012. I currently work in research for Kno.e.sis which deals primarily with the Semantic web. Semantic Web is a term coined by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) director, Tim Berners-Lee. It describes methods and technologies to allow machines to understand the meaning - or "semantics" - of information on the World Wide Web. The project I am currently working on is called Twitris and is a Semantic Web application that facilitates understanding of social perceptions by Semantics-based processing of massive amounts of event-centric data.
