Towards Smart Cache Management for Ontology Based, History-Aware Stream Reasoning

Printer-friendly version

Abstract:

Stream reasoning is an exciting multidisciplinary research area that combines stream processing and semantic reasoning. Its goal is to not only process a dynamic data stream, but also to extract explicit and implicit information on-the-fly. One of its challenges is managing history awareness: how much and which historical data should be held and for how long as we continuously query and reason on an ever changing stream of linked data? In this paper, we propose an innovative approach to enable history-aware reasoning by utilizing semantic technologies in a data cache with a statistics-based cache management policy.

Principal Investigator: William Smith and Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: AIM will advance streaming reasoning techniques to overcome a limitation in contemporary inference that performs analysis only over data in a fixed cache or a moving window. This research will lead to methods that continuously shed light on proposed hypotheses as new knowledge arrives from streams of propositions, with a particular emphasis on the effect that removing the expectation of completeness has on the soundness and performance of symbolic deduction platforms.

Description: Science has fully entered a new mode of operation. Data science is advancing inductive conduct of science driven by the greater volumes, complexity and heterogeneity of data being made available over the Internet. Data science combines of aspects of data management, library science, computer science, and physical science using supporting cyberinfrastructure and information technology. As such it is changing the way all of these disciplines do both their individual and collaborative work.

Data science is helping scienists face new global problems of a magnitude, complexity and interdisciplinary nature whose progress is presently limited by lack of available tools and a fully trained and agile workforce.

At present, there is a lack formal training in the key cognitive and skill areas that would enable graduates to become key participants in escience collaborations. The need is to teach key methodologies in application areas based on real research experience and build a skill-set.

At the heart of this new way of doing science, especially experimental and observational science but also increasingly computational science, is the generation of data.
