Title of the presentation:

"Web Observatories: Infrastructures for Engaging with Data and Analytics on a Global Scale"


Prof. Dr. Thanassis Tiropanis (University of Southampton)


Web Observatories are global distributed resources that can engage
communities with data and analytic resources to make the most of
existing and emergent datasets including those of the linked data cloud,
social media, online archives and media archives. This undertaking is
promising in terms of fostering data literacy and innovation on a large
scale but comes with infrastructural challenges. Those challenges
include resource description and discovery, interoperability, privacy
and performance for queries and analytics on a distributed scale. This
talk presents how those challenges are addressed in the architecture of
the Southampton University Web Observatory and discusses a research
roadmap on Web Observatory
