One of our former students, Ole Mengshoel, has been awarded a two-year, USD 498 000 grant from the National Science Foundation in USA, to create new computer tools for improving and integrating the way information is displayed and analyzed.
According to Ole - The project will develop new techniques that integrate visualization processes and analytical tools, including data mining and machine learning, that will enable improved monitoring of large utility projects.
Ole Mengshoel was one of Tore Amble's master students, and his master thesis was entitled Knowledge Representation in Natural Language Interfaces to Databases.
After he completed his degree in 1989, Ole worked at SINTEF for four and a half years. At SINTEF he was in the same research group as Agnar Aamodt, and Ingeborg Sølvberg was the leader of the research group. Currently Ole is working as a Senior System Scientist at Carnegie Mellon University in USA.
