Martin DzborSenior Research Fellow
I worked on the <b>NeOn</b> project (http://neon-project.org) - as a senior research scientist and technical manager. NeOn is a flagship project of IST FP6 and investigates aspects of evolution, collaboration, contextualization and human-ontology interaction in the environment of large-scale networked ontologies.
Before NeOn I managed OU contribution to the <b>KnowledgeWeb</b> project (http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/kweb), and previously, I have worked in the <b>climate<i>prediction</i>.net</b> (http://www.climateprediction.net) project - a large-scale climate modelling and distributed computing project (similar to SETI@Home). The motivation for KMi in both projects was the application of our cutting-edge tools and technologies developed around Magpie and BuddySpace, and to make a contribution to the Semantic Web vision. I delivered a tool that can be called a 'Semantic Web browser'.
The Magpie plug-in of MS Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, which is one of my main designs and implementations, supports ontology-based interpretation, sense-making and exploration of web resources. Find out more on the <b>Magpie</b> project web page (http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/magpie)...
