Big Data Integration

From Data Integration...

Data Integration is the problem of combining data residing at different autonomous sources, and providing the user with a unified view of these data. The DBGroup group has been investigating data integration for more than 20 years and almost all of the research activities have been centered around the MOMIS (Mediator EnvirOnment for Multiple Information Sources) Data Integration System;

MOMIS is a data integration system able to integrate and query data coming from heterogeneous data sources (structured and semi-structured) in a semi-automatic way, to bring out new information from apparently unrelated existing data. An open source version of MOMIS is delivered and maintained by DataRiver.

... to Big Data Integration

Big Data is the term for data sets that are so large and complex that they are difficult to capture, curate, manage, and process with current data-management tools. If the Big Data process can be effectively developed and controlled, its potential benefits to business, government, and society are huge.

Big Data Integration
For making sense of Big Data, scattered across multiple sources, novel scalable techniques are needed. The DBgroup is studying and developing cutting-edge tools for supporting data engineers and data scientists to do that easily and efficiently.

Other research activities

 

Keyword-based search

Typically, structured data sources are queried by means of structured languages, thus making possible to access data only for advanced users. Systems based on keywords do not require such knowledge, enabling the casual user to access the data.

   

Open Data and Linked Open Data

Nowadays, numerous open data sources are available on public organization's web sites. However, the great majority of these resources is published in an unstructured format and is typically accessed only by closed communities. The Linked Open Data paradigm represents the key solution to improve and enrich the use of open data and to help consumers to access their integrated information.

   

Data Intensive Mobile Apps


Design and development of data intensive cross-platforms applications (Apple iOS and Android) and web application

   

Intelligent Chatbot

A chatbot is a software application used to conduct an on-line chat conversation via text or text-to-speech designed to convincingly simulate the way a human would behave as a conversational partner.
