Research interests

My main research interest is structured machine learning and its application on Big Data problems. As part of the MOLE group I am contributing to the DL-Learner framework trying to adapt and extend it for bigger life science use-cases. Besides this, further efforts concern the parallelization of existing learning algorithms on shared memory and shared nothing architectures.

Current Projects

  • DL-Learnera tool for supervised Machine Learning in OWL and Description Logics
  • GeoKnowMaking the Web an Exploratory for Geospatial Knowledge
  • JassaJAvascript Suite for Sparql Access
  • LinkedGeoDataadds a spatial dimension to the Web of Data
  • QROWDThe power of the Qrowd combines with RDF
  • RDFUnitan RDF Unit-Testing suite
  • SANSA-StackOpen source platform for distributed data processing for RDF large-scale datasets
  • SML-BenchA Benchmark for Symbolic Supervised Machine Learning from Expressive Structured Data
  • Sparqlifya SPARQL-SQL rewriter
