Francesco OsborneResearch Associate
I am a research associate at the Knowledge Media institute (KMi) of the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK. My research focuses on Semantic Web, Semantic Publishing, User Modelling, Data Mining and Human Computer Interaction. At the moment, I am working on the MKSmart project and on the Rexplore project (http://technologies.kmi.open.ac.uk/rexplore).
I am the main developer of Rexplore, a system which leverages novel solutions in large-scale data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, to provide an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data.
Keys: Semantic Web, Semantic Publishing, Data Mining, User Modelling, Knowledge Extraction, Ontologies, Scholarly Data.
