AKSW Colloquium, 03-23-2015, Git Triple Store and From CPU bringup to IBM Watson

From CPU bring up to IBM Watson by Kay Müller, visiting researcher, IBM Ireland

Kay Müller

Working in a corporate environment like IBM offers many different opportunities to work on the bleeding edge of research and development. In this presentation Kay Müller, who is currently a Software Engineer in the IBM Watson Group, is going to give a brief overview of some of the projects he has been working on in IBM. These projects range from a CPU bring up using VHDL to the design and development of a semantic search framework for the IBM Watson system.

Git Triple Store by Natanael Arndt

Natanael Arndt

In a setup of distributed clients resp. applications with different actors writing on the same knowledge base (KB) a synchronization of distributed copies of the KB, an edit history with provenance information and a management for different versions of the KB in parallel are needed. The aim is to design and construct a Triple Store back end which records any change on triple-level and enables distributed curation of RDF-graphs. This should be achieved by using a distributed revision control system for holding a serialization of the RDF-graph. Natanael Arndt will present the paper “R&Wbase: Git for triples” by Miel Vander Sande et al. published at LDOW2013 as related work. Additionally, he will present his ideas towards a colaboration infrastructure using distributed version control systems for triples.
