Hi All,
I am new to the group, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the
University of Trento in the context of the OKKAM project[1].
I am coordinating OKKAM related use cases, my goal is to publish and
provide OKKAMized data. These data are basically linked data with
unique entity identifiers. The main problem we are facing now is
related to automatically or semi-automatically recognize and integrate
entities contained in different databases based on the OKKAM approach.
My research interests are the multidisciplinary area between
intelligent multimedia retrieval, Web 2.0, Semantic Web and digital

My SKYID is : therealxstrix
my web site is: www.angela-fogarolli.net
