Connecting the dots in the World's data

Bolzano Research Visit

Before going to ISWC2014, I am taking a quick trip to visit Werner Nutt at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. Werner was my PhD supervisor where we developed techniques for integrating distributed data streams (Gray, 2007). The work was inspired by the problem of monitoring the resources on a computational Grid (Cooke, Gray and Nutt, 2005; Cooke et al., 2004; Cooke et al., 2003; Gray, Nutt and Williams, 2007). We will be exploring our common interests in stream processing, data integration and incompleteness.

As part of my visit, I’m giving a seminar on my work in the Open PHACTS project on using Scientific Lenses to support multiple views over linked data. You can see my slides below.
