Big Data Outlook, Tools, and Architectures

Posted on: Fri, 05/29/2020 - 10:19 By: valentina.janev

Big data is a reality and it is being generated and handled in almost all digitised scenarios. This chapter covers the history of Big data and discusses prominent related terminologies. The significant technologies including architectures and tools are reviewed. Finally, the lecture reviews big knowledge graphs, that attempt to address the challenges (e.g. heterogeneity, interoperability, variety) of big data through their specialised representation format. This chapter aims to provide an overview of the existing terms and technologies related to big data.

SANSA - Scalable Semantic Analytics Stack

Posted on: Wed, 04/01/2020 - 20:59 By: valentina.janev

The size of knowledge graphs has reached the scale where centralised analytical approaches have become infeasible. Recent technological progress has enabled powerful distributed in-memory analytics that have been shown to work well on simple data structures. However, the application of such distributed analytics approaches on semantic knowledge graphs lags significantly behind. To advance both scalability and accuracy of large-scale knowledge graph analytics to a new level, foundational research on methods leveraging distributed in-memory computing and semantic technologies in combination w

Data Analytics for Energy Sector

Posted on: Tue, 05/21/2019 - 14:56 By: valentina.janev

Big Data technologies are often used in domains where data is generated, stored and processes with rates that cannot be efficiently processed by one computer. One of those domains is definitely the domain of energy. Here, the processes of energy generation, transmission, distribution and use have to be concurrently monitored and analyzed in order to assure system stability without brownouts or blackouts. The transmission systems (grids) that transport electric energy are in general very large and robust infrastructures that are accompanied with an abundance of monitoring equipment.

Extraction for Knowledge Graphs

Posted on: Mon, 12/24/2018 - 16:29 By: valentina.janev

This module will discuss the topic of extraction for Knowledge Graphs. We will focus on web data extraction in this module. Web data extraction is essential to make information available on the web accessible and usable by Knowledge Graphs. We provide a thorough introduction to the topic. This will feature both Oxford’s Vadalog and OXPath systems.

Introduction to Knowledge Graphs

Posted on: Mon, 12/24/2018 - 16:27 By: valentina.janev

Knowledge Graphs (KGs) are one of the key trends among the next wave of technologies. Many defnitions exist of what a Knowledge Graph is, and in this chapter, we are going to take the position that precisely in the multitude of definitions lies one of the strengths of the area. We will choose a particular perspective, which we will call the layered perspective and three views on Knowledge Graphs:

  • KGs as Knowledge Representation Tools
  • KGs as Knowledge Management Systems
  • KGs as Knowledge Application Services

Distributed Semantic Analytics II

Posted on: Mon, 12/24/2018 - 16:22 By: valentina.janev

This module will cover the setup, APIs and different layers of SANSA. At the end of this module, the audience will be able to execute examples and create programs that use SANSA APIs. The final part of this lecture is planned to be an interactive session to wrap up the introduced concepts and present attendees some open research questions which are nowadays studied by the community.

Distributed Semantic Analytics I

Posted on: Mon, 12/24/2018 - 16:21 By: valentina.janev

This module will cover the needs and challenges of distributed analytics and then dive into the details of scalable semantic analytics stack (SANSA) used to perform scalable analytics for knowledge graphs. It will cover different SANSA layers and the underlying principles to achieve scalability for knowledge graph processing.

Distributed Big Data Libraries

Posted on: Mon, 12/24/2018 - 16:21 By: valentina.janev

In the practical level, the Big Data frameworks use different APIs for graph computations and graph processing. In this lecture, the important libraries built on top of Apache Spark will be covered. These include SparkSQL, GraphX and MLlib. The audience will learn to build scalable algorithms in Spark using Scala.
