Gildas Tagny Ngompe

Gildas Tagny Ngompe

PhD candidate

Started on December, the 15th 2015, this work focuses first on designing and applying efficient NLP and text mining methods to extract information from a large corpus of court decisions in order to build a legal knowledge base (KB). The final phase leverages the KB to design some descriptive and predictive models that will enable an estimation of the chance of success of a claim in a court and a comprehensive insight on how judges make decisions.

Valentina Beretta

Valentina Beretta

PhD candidate

This work started on October, the 1st 2015.
Her work focuses on source trustworthiness. This issue is very important in Truth-Discovery domain whose aim is to identify true information and source trustworthiness among a set of conflicting facts. Considering these two important quantities may help in knowledge base enrichment task.
