Description:

Inference And Trust
AeroStat (AeroStat)
Principal Investigator: Greg Leptoukh
Co Investigator: Peter Fox, David Lary, Rob Levy, and Christopher Lynnes
Description: Objective Provide online environment for convenient access to: Satellite and ground-based aerosol data Quality information and provenance Calibration/validation data Provide multi-sensor services: Multi-sensor and model intercomparison Cross-sensor bias adjustment Data merging Create collaborative environment for aerosol researchers to share ideas, workflows and results
DQSSData Quality Screening Service (DQSS)
Principal Investigator: Christopher Lynnes
Co Investigator: Peter Fox, Ed Olsen, Shahin Samadi, Bruce Vollmer, and Robert Wolfe
Description: Objective Make data quality information easy to use for the water cycle community Expert and non-specialist users alike Human and machine users alike Connect users seamlessly to best practices in data quality handling, i.e., the science team recommendations for quality screening (filtering) Enable higher and more correct utilization of data quality indicators in data analysis
FUSE LogoForesight and Understanding from Scientific Exposition (FUSE)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: Jim Hendler
Description: Technical emergence refers to the process whereby innovative ideas, capabilities, applications, and even entirely new fields of study arise, are tested, mature, and, if conditions are favorable, demonstrate feasibility and impact. IARPA’s Foresight and Understanding from Scientific Exposition (FUSE) Program is sponsoring advanced research and development (R&D) to develop automated systems that aid in the systematic, continuous, and comprehensive assessment of technical emergence using information derived from the published scientific, technical, and patent literature.
Mobile Health Project LogoMobile Health
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: The Mobile Health project aims to bring semantic representations of medical data collected from a variety of consumer and medical grade devices and integrate those data on an individual's mobile smartphone. Combined with the reasoning capabilities of semantic web and technologies such as IBM Watson, this project plans to enable personalized health care through the instrumented self.
Repurposing Drugs with Semantics (ReDrugS)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness and Jonathan Dordick
Description: We aim to find new effective treatments for disease using existing drugs. Our approach is to gather and integrate existing data using semantic technologies to help discover promising drug repurposing.
Resource Discovery for Extreme Scale Collaboration (RDESC)
Principal Investigator: Karen Schuchardt, Eric Stephan, and Jesse Weaver
Co Investigator: Alan Chappell and Peter Fox
Description: Our objective is to develop a capability for describing, linking, searching and discovering resources used in collaborative science that is lightweight enough to be used as a component in any software system such as desktop user environments or dashboards but also scalable to millions of resources. A key design goal is to offer local control over resource descriptions thus reducing one of the bottlenecks to widespread adoption. We propose to build a prototype framework and associated services, the Resource Discovery for Extreme Scale Collaboration (RDESC), that meet these objectives.
SPCDIS Project LogoSemantic Provenance Capture in Data Ingest Systems (SPCDIS)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox
Co Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: The goal of this project is to develop at the RPI Tetherless World Constellation, based within the NCAR High Altitude Observatory and in collaboration with the University of Texas at El Paso, the University of Michigan and McGuinness Associates a semantically-enabled data ingest capability.
DCO-DS LogoTheory and Practice of Accountable Systems (TPAS)
Principal Investigator: Jim Hendler
Description: The TPAS Project investigates computational and social properties of information networks necessary to provide reliable assessments of compliance with rules and policies governing the use of information.
TAMI LogoTransparent and Accountable Datamining Initiative (TAMI)
Principal Investigator: Jim Hendler and Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: The TAMI Project is creating technical, legal, and policy foundations for transparency and accountability in large-scale aggregation and inferencing across heterogeneous information systems.
