Ahmed Loai Ali
I am a Ph.D Student in the Cognitive System Research group. I have a Scholarship from Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD). The Scholarship called German-Egyptian Long-Term Scholarship (GERLS) offered according to cooperation between DAAD and Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education. I am highly interested in Information Systems in general and exactly Geographical Information System (GIS). I have graduated from Faculty of Computers and Information, Assiut University, Egypt, 2005. Afterwards, I have been hired as a teaching staff at the University, resumed my postgraduate studies and obtained M.Sc. of Computer Science from Cairo University, Egypt at 2010. Currently I am interested in my research topic about Volunteered Geographical Information (VGI) as a new crowdsourcing paradigm of geographical data. It is a rich source of spatial data and information, but unfortunately with problematic quality. In my research, I am concerning with the VGI quality from the classification perspectives. I am trying to apply some machine learning methodologies to manage, improve and assess the quality.
DAAD GERLS grant for doing my Ph.D. during the period from October 2012 up to October 2016.
COST Grant for contribution at "The Vespucci Initiative" : a summer school about VGI and Citizen Science at Fiesole, Florence, Italy.
