DNA for KNOWLEDGE

ABOUT ME

Aviv Segev

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science of the School of Computing at the University of South Alabama. My research interest is looking for the DNA of knowledge, an underlying structure common to all knowledge, through analysis of knowledge models in natural sciences, knowledge processing in natural and artificial neural networks, and knowledge mapping between different knowledge domains. In 2004, I received a Ph.D. from Tel-Aviv University in Technology and Information Systems.

RESEARCH

Research Topics / Interests
