Francesco OsborneSenior Research Fellow
I am Senior Research Fellow at the Knowledge Media institute of the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, where I lead the Scholarly Knowledge Mining (SKM) team. My research covers Artificial Intelligence, Information Extraction, Knowledge Graphs, Science of Science, Semantic Web, Research Analytics, and Semantic Publishing. I have authored more than a hundred peer-reviewed publications in top journals and conferences in my research areas, including the Semantic Web Journal, Neurocomputing, Future Generation Computer Systems, the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, ISWC, ESWC, WebConf, JCDL, TPDL, and UMAP. I won several awards, including the Best In-Use Paper Award at the International Semantic Web Conference 2022, the Best Demo Award at the International Semantic Web Conference 2020, and the Semantic Publishing Award at European Semantic Web Conference 2014.
The SKM team aims to produce innovative approaches leveraging large-scale data mining, semantic technologies, machine learning and visual analytics for making sense of scholarly data and forecast research dynamics. We collaborate with several commercial organizations (e.g., Springer Nature, Elsevier, Microsoft, Digital Science, Figshare), non-profit organizations, and universities.
