UBITECH actively participates at the eChallenges e-2014 Conference through a scientific paper and two workshop presentations regarding Linked Data Analytics

UBITECH is participating at the eChallenges e-2014 Conference that is taking place in Belfast, Northern lreland at 29-31 October 2014. Specifically, UBITECH is actively involved with the organization of the workshop “Making (Linked) Open Data Available for Business” that is realized within the framework of the LinDA FP7 project. Two presentations entitled “Linked Open Data for EU SMEs: The case of Business Analytics” and “Business Value Creation from Linked Data Analytics: The LinDA Approach” are given by Dr. Anastasios Zafeiropoulos during the workshop. The latter presentation is associated with a scientific paper, co-authored by UBITECH, that has been accepted for presentation at the conference. At this paper, Panagiotis Hasapis, Eleni Fotopoulou and Anastasios Zafeiropoulos – along with other LinDA consortium members – propose an approach for the extraction of Linked Data analytics, based on the exploitation of a set of tools for proper transformation and interlinking of public and private datasets and the realization of analysis over them. The proposed approach targets at enhancing the ability of public and private sector organizations to provide usable Linked Data, while offering SMEs the opportunity to perform advanced algorithmic analysis.
