Dr. Liliana Cabral
A Case Study on Generating Semantic Sensor Data
This event took place on Wednesday 17 July 2013 at 11:30

The recent years have seen a vast increase in the amount of environmental sensor data that is being published on the Web. Semantic enrichment of sensor data addresses the problems of re-use, integration and discovery. One of the main challenges has been to describe and manage data from multiple environmental sensors. In this talk, we present our approach to semantically augment an in-house sensor data infrastructure named Sensor Cloud, and discuss our experience in using ontologies to model and generate knowledge about sensing data and sensing devices. We capitalize on the use of the SSN Ontology and a few other ontologies derived from OGC's Semantic Web Enablement data models to provide an umbrella ontology, named Sensor Cloud Ontology (SCO).

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
