A European Network of Excellence for Large-Scale Data Management Over the Internet Is Launched
Universidad Politecnica de Madrid
December 3, 2010
The Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) is participating in PlanetData, a European project to help researchers publish their data in a more serviceable form on a large scale over the Internet. PlanetData will offer data stream representations and scalable techniques for integrating, publishing, and assessing structured and unstructured data streams, microblog entries, digital files, e-science resources, public-sector datasets, and linked data in a cloud. The project will define best practices for capturing the context of the produced data.
PlanetData will make sense of data--including provenance, and space, time, and social characteristics--as a means of increasing the effectiveness of data processing and retrieval techniques. The project also will provide strategies for assessing, recording, preserving, and improving data quality via repair techniques during information processing. In addition, the project will address issues of access control and privacy.
UPM's Oscar Corcho will research the annotation of data sources to improve the processing, mining, and fusion of data resources as well as the modeling, integration, and adaptation of unknown and changing data sources.
