Plan for 2012 and beyond for the world’s first ever Open Data Institute (ODI) headed up by Professor Nigel Shadbolt, covering the institute’s mission, objectives and work plan.
Research paper by Alex L. Wood, Geoff V. Merrett, Steve R. Gunn, Bashir M. Al-Hashimi, Nigel R. Shadbolt and Wendy Hall, on a new architecture for context awareness which achieves a good balance between energy consumption and reliable context identification.
Interview with Nigel Shadbolt in “Wired” magazine on plans for the Open Data Institute and what it can offer private and public organisations and individuals.
Research paper by Tope Omitola, Andre Freitas, Edward Curry, Sean ORiain, Nicholas Gibbins and Nigel Shadbolt on a formal model of IDT (Interactive Data Transformation). IDT tools allow re-purposing of data by standardisation of heterogeneous data sets. They can also perform data quality assurance. The paper discusses the implementation and validation of the model on the IDT platform Google Refine.
