Hugh Glaser has more than 30 years experience in Computer Science. He has created two of the most significant practical activities in the Web of Data, sameas.org and rkbexplorer.
Hugh Glaser’s research work has most recently been as a Reader in the School of Electronics & Computer Science at the University of Southampton, UK.
His earlier research was in the fundamentals of Distributed Systems and Programming Languages, but since the Semantic Web activity began he has moved his focus to the technologies required to deliver the vision. As part of this he has enthusiastically embraced the Linked Data initiative.
In addition to the general work and consultancy he is responsible for two significant practical activities in the Web of Data: a) sameas.org , which helps to establish linkage between datasets; b) rkbexplorer.com, which is a Linked Data application that gives a unified view of some fixed datasets plus data from the general Web of Data.
