Guest Talk: Harnessing the Power of (Knowledge) Graphs
Date/Time: 20.12.2016, 11:00
The Web, traditionally viewed as a vast repository of documents, is being transformed into a huge database by the massive presence of structured data. New research challenges arise in this information space due to the intrinsic decentralised data creation and management, the lack of superimposed schema, the unknown topology of data sources and their links, and the availability of huge volumes of data covering diverse domains. The broad objective of this talk is to report on my research activities in the areas of graph data management. I will give an overview of my research on graph navigational and explanation languages and outline the idea of Web Maps. Then, I will focus on ongoing research activities in the areas of querying historical RDF data, community deception, and privacy-aware neural network analysis.
