Knowledge Graph Modularization for Cyber-Physical Production Systems

2021 International Semantic Web Conference  
Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have a large potential to support analytics and AI applications in the manufacturing domain, which in the age of Industry 4.0 is increasingly driven by data. Compared to other domains, however, KG techniques have seen limited adoption in this field so far. We argue that the construction of KGs in the context of Cyber-physical Production Systems (CPPSs) requires a systematic methodology grounded in domain-specific abstractions. Consequently, we introduce a KG

A key benefit of the proposed approach is that the resulting KGs support navigation across abstraction hierarchies, enabling bottom-up contextualization of raw data on the one hand, and top-down explanations by linking to lower levels of granularity on the other hand. We motivate the proposed approach and illustrate its application with a real-world use case from the automotive sector.

Foundational Oracle Patterns: Connecting Blockchain to the Off-chain World [article]

2020 arXiv   pre-print
Blockchain has evolved into a platform for decentralized applications, with beneficial properties like high integrity, transparency, and resilience against censorship and tampering. However, blockchains are closed-world systems which do not have access to external state. To overcome this limitation, oracles have been introduced in various forms and for different purposes. However so far common oracle best practices have not been dissected, classified, and studied in their fundamental aspects.

We provide a structured description of the four patterns in detail, and discuss an implementation of these patterns based on use cases. On this basis we conduct a quantitative analysis, which results in the insight that the four different patterns are characterized by distinct performance and costs profiles.

We studied the applicability of point clouds derived from tri-stereo satellite imagery for semantic segmentation for generalized sparse convolutional neural networks by the example of an Austrian study area. We examined, in particular, if the distorted geometric information, in addition to color, influences the performance of segmenting clutter, roads, buildings, trees, and vehicles. In this regard, we trained a fully convolutional neural network that uses generalized sparse convolution one

In the first experiment, we did not use class weights, whereas in the second we did. We compared the results with a fully convolutional neural network that was trained on a 2D orthophoto, and a decision tree that was once trained on hand-crafted 3D geometric features, and once trained on hand-crafted 3D geometric as well as color features. The decision tree using hand-crafted features has been successfully applied to aerial laser scanning data in the literature. Hence, we compared our main interest of study, a representation learning technique, with another representation learning technique, and a non-representation learning technique. Our study area is located in Waldviertel, a region in Lower Austria. The territory is a hilly region covered mainly by forests, agriculture, and grasslands. Our classes of interest are heavily unbalanced. However, we did not use any data augmentation techniques to counter overfitting. For our study area, we reported that geometric and color information only improves the performance of the Generalized Sparse Convolutional Neural Network (GSCNN) on the dominant class, which leads to a higher overall performance in our case. We also found that training the network with median class weighting partially reverts the effects of adding color. The network also started to learn the classes with lower occurrences. The fully convolutional neural network that was trained on the 2D orthophoto generally outperforms the other two with a kappa score of over 90% and an average per class accuracy of 61%. However, the decision tree trained on colors and hand-crafted geometric features has a 2% higher accuracy for roads.
