Project description

This project researches if it is possible to automatically populate a table that only contains header information. The header information is provided through an intuitive user interface, which facilitates the easy access of the semantic web. The goal of the project is to fill the table automatically through semantic reasoning based on the provided headers. It is an improvement on research from for example [1], who gathered information through pre-indexed tables extracted from the web.
