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 Scholarship: 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.
Impulse Grant: University of Bremen: for participation at "GIScience 2014" conference, Vienna, Austria.
