Data and logic on acid: Introducing Leapsight Semantic Dataspace (LSD)

About the talk:

LSD is a distributed, in-memory, scalable, fault-tolerant, deductive semantic dataspace built on Erlang/OTP and Riak Core.
LSD stores immutable temporal facts, using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) as the basis for its information model. Facts are stored as a labelled directed graph, providing a natural and friction-less representation of many-to-many relationships, which are the nuts and bolts of consumer profiles, social networks, product catalogues and consumer-brand relationships. LSD provides dynamic schema and data management via formally defined ontologies without the need for physical schema changes.

In addition to storing facts, LSD stores logic rules (Datalog) that are used to deduce new facts, allowing - together with its in-memory capabilities - the implementation of the real-time operational intelligence required for next generation consumer-oriented marketing.

    I have to say that I am really impressed over the high quality of the talks we have had this year. Alejandro's one made my head hurt. Having said that, don't let that discourage you. We'd love to hear from others interested in speaking.
