Sebastián,
We may have some goals in common. We are currently working on a reference implementation for “Semantic Modeling for Information Federation” (SMIF), an OMG standard in progress. Here is a link to the current draft: https://github.com/ModelDriven/SIMF/blob/master/NextSubmission/SMIFSubmissionMasterDocument.pdf


The foundation meta-model is designed to support a variety of modeling, data languages and technologies as well as mapping semantics. There is already one commercial implementation of the UML/OWL binding (which makes it much easier to create and reuse SW models): https://www.nomagic.com/product-addons/magicdraw-addons/cameo-concept-modeler-plugin


We are building out the more runtime aspects of federation ( also in Java 😊). The mapping semantics that define the “pivot” through concepts to various data representations is a key feature, as are higher representation of concepts like roles and first-class relationships. We are not quite ready to post the initial implementation, the target is end-of-year. One area we would like to collaborate on is the analytics side, currently the analytics front-ends are all very SQL (or at least table or name/value) oriented.

Like you, we are looking for collaborators on both the business and technical sides. It may be that the projects could be mutually supportive.

Regards,
Cory Casanave

Subject: "Team" members wanted

Team members wanted (for a project that doesn't yet exist):

Hi, I'm just creating 'CognescentBI' as an organization into GitHub for initially hosting the proyect 'BISemantics' where I'll be pushing all the development efforts regarding a Business Integration platform for the Web of Data.

https://www.github.com/CognescentBI/BISemantics


I'm looking for collaborators, members, contributors and comments of all kind and sources.

Please watch for updates or follow:
http://exampledotorg.blogspot.com


From Blogspot there will be accessible a forum group link and Twitter updates from which to keep updated.

For being honest, I already have no code at all. The whole project is planned to be implemented in Java and with a strong 'semantics' orientation. For now all I have is a bunch of Word documents specifying what's my 'vision' of a Semantic Web of Data.

So please be patient. I'm trying to take this very slowly doing as much analysis and design as posible before actually implementing anything.

So, if you dare, try to skim through the document files in the repo and, reading between lines, try to figure out what are the ingredients I'll try to mix up.

I now it's cumbersome for someone to be asked to figure out what others (example: me) are trying to mean when stating something. That's my main problem when I think something I wrote is worthwhile to share with the world and I think it will be evident for others to realize what's my point.

That's why I'm going 'social' into development. It's evident for me I'm needing to be clear in the most possible ways and that comments from peers are the only way to find out where I must turn out to achieve this.

Best Regards,
Sebastián.
