Computer Science and Engineering: KNO.E.SIS

Knoesis Research Lab Wright State University


Ten years ago we had billions of web pages, and now we have roughly 5 billion people using mobile phones, collecting observations, and sharing what they think using SMS (Social Media Services), Twitter, and Facebook. Worldwide, there are currently over 40 billion mobile sensors, with more smart devices being created each day, which make up the Internet of Things.

We make technical advances in these CS areas and apply them to solve real-world problems:
  • Semantic Web
  • Network Science
  • Big and Smart Data Science
  • Data Mining
  • Machine Learning
  • Natural Language Understanding
  • Graph DB & Reasoning
  • Cloud Computing
  • Visualization
  • Stream Reasoning
  • Information Extraction
We address major human, social, and economic development challenges through analysis of social, sensor/IoT, and scientific Big Data:
  • Smart City
  • Gender-based Violence
  • Human Trafficking
  • Juvenile Crime Reduction
  • Harassment on Social Media
  • Coordination During Disasters
  • Detection of Depressive Behavior
As an Ohio Center of Excellent in BioHealth Innovation, we are engaged in a number of a number of personalized digital health and healthcare informatics activities related to:
  • Clinical Text Understanding
  • Asthma in Children
  • Reducing Rehospitalization of ADHF & GI patients
  • Biomarkers for Esophageal Cancer
  • Dementia
