Joint Keynote at Int. Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web and Prague Computer Science Seminar, Prague, September 22, 2016
The challenges of Big Data are frequently explained by dealing with Volume, Velocity, Variety and Veracity. The large variety of data in organizations results from accessing different information systems with heterogeneous schemata or ontologies. In this talk I will present the research efforts that target the management of such broad data.
They include: (i) an integrated development environment for programming with broad data, (ii) a query language that allows for typing of query results, (iii) a typed lambda-calculus based on description logics, and (iv) efficient access to data repositories via schema indices.
