AKSW wins Big Data Challenge

Greetings all!

The best 12th ISWC to ever be was concluded with the traditional award ceremony and … we won! The Big Data Challenge award was attributed to our work on Fostering Serendipity Through Big Linked Data. The idea behind this paper was to show how the integration and visualization of large amounts of data can empower end users during their quest for new knowledge. In this paper, we implemented this idea for bio-medical experts by combining Linked TCGA (the winner of the I-Challenge 2013)¬†with publications from PubMed within the visualization available here. This work is intended to be the first in a series of works on exploiting Big Data to support researchers in their everyday work.

Cheers,
Axel
