Research Associate: Semantic Web

Knowledge Media Institute (KMi)
£27,183 - £35,469, Ref: 5245
Based in Milton Keynes - Temporary 12 month contract

The Open University's Knowledge Media Institute has an opening for a
Research Associate to participate to the research activities realized
within the NeOn EU-funded integrated project (http://neon-project.org)
on knowledge sharing and ontology publication. This work is part of our
ongoing research program on enabling the development of the Semantic
Web, and in particular, of the next generation of Semantic Web
applications, by providing the necessary foundation for the realization
of such applications. More precisely, this work is at the forefront of
emerging semantic technologies, combining infrastructure components for
Semantic Web search (i.e., the Watson Semantic Web gateway,
http://watson.kmi.open.ac.uk) and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing with
principles of social networks for collaborative evaluation and trust
management in ontologies. Core to the work is the development of a new
ontology sharing and publication system (Cupboard), which addresses the
need for an open, distributed ontology repository system for the
Semantic Web.
