Profile

Sameer is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Artificial Intelligence research group (AI). He began by studying for a BSc Computer Science at Taibah University. This was followed by an MSc in Advanced Computer Science in the School of Computing at University of Leeds.

 

Research interests

Sameer’s general research area is Natural Language Processing and he is particularly interested in ontology learning, text mining and analysis for understanding and extracting meaning knowledge from textual resources in domains such as religious text and Classical Arabic text. My recent work focuses on learning the ontological elements from the Arabic text of the Qur’an. The main components of this work include: identifying concepts; learning hierarchical relations among the learned concepts.
