Wouter Beek

Amsterdam, Netherlands


I'm currently employed as a researcher at the Free University (VU) in Amsterdam, working on the "Vrije Competitie" NWO project Pragmatic Semantics (PraSem). I'm working on a new semantic paradigm for interpreting existing Semantic Web (SW) data, taking the contradictions, ambiguities and context-dependencies that abound into account. My previous research was conducted at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) within the international DynaLearn project, focusing on the diagnostic evaluation of qualitative models.
