ResearchSpace is an extensible collaborative research environment based on Linked Data and knowledge representation using CIDOC-CRM to provide the context and meaning required for scholarly knowledge building. ResearchSpace is implemented based on the metaphactory, metaphacts' end-to-end platform for creating and utilizing knowledge graphs. In this presentation we will provide an overview and demonstration of the semantics-based approach to knowledge representation in ResearchSpace and how it is supported by the relevant components of the knowledge graph platform, including authoring and annotation of semantic data, semantic search, data visualization and analytics.
Peter Haase has founded metaphacts in October 2014. He has 20+ years of IT experience, with 14+ years in semantic technologies, in academia as well as in industry. In 2006, Peter obtained his PhD from the University of Karlsruhe (now KIT) under the supervision of Prof. Rudi Studer. Lastly, he worked as Head of Research and Development at fluid Operations AG. Previously, he also worked for IBM in the Silicon Valley Labs in the development team of DB2, as well as for the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics. Peter has acquired and managed numerous large research projects and also led the development of commercial products and solutions in the area of semantic technologies.
