Re: [bpmlod] introductions

I am Dave Lewis of Trinity College Dublin. I am a principle investigator in CNGL, a large academic-industrial research centre in Ireland, where i have specific responsibility for Interoperability and Analytics research spanning content management, language technology and the multilingual web. I have collaborated with Felix Sasaki, as a co-chair of the MLW-LT working group at the W3C in developing ITS2.0, and with Dominic Jones in organising the MLW LOD workshop in Dublin last June. I have been collaborating with Felix, Dom and Sebastian Hellman in defining the ITS ontology. I have a particular interest in the analytics and active curation of language resources as linked data using the W3C provenance ontology, and i am coordinating a SME focussed fp7 STREP due to start this autumn applying this approach to localisation tool chains. In CNGL i am working on further expanding this linked data approach to language resource provenance to other forms of multilingual content processing, including cross lingual IR, content personalisation and multimodal interaction. I will also participate in the LIDER CSA which will be roadmapping linguistic linked data research.

I look forward to contributing to the BP MLOD community group.

Kind regards,
Dave Lewis
