SCL Seminar by Tomi Kauppinen

On August 21, 2015, at 14:00, in the library reading room "Dr. Dragan Popović" of the Institute of Physics Belgrade, Dr. Tomi Kauppinen (Department of Computer Science, School of Science Aalto University, Finland) will present a seminar talk entitled:

"Supporting hypotheses generation via visualizing the web of data"

Abstract: Understanding what happens in the world is crucial in order to make informed decisions. Further on, we evidence now the availability of a big web of data consisting of a huge variety of observations. To name a few, these observations cover phenomena reflecting economical (like market prices), ecological (like land use changes) or social (like population) dimensions. In this talk I discuss our efforts to support the generation of useful hypotheses from the web of data. For this I will present the idea of Linked Data, and show via cases how to interactively explore the web of data at different levels.
