Assistant Director, IT Services R&D/ILRT, University of Bristol
We are currently working on data.bris, a human and machine accessible portal for the University of Bristol's research data. This pilot project in the Arts and Humanities is likely to grow to encompass all the University's research data stored in our petascale Research Data Storage Facility (Blue Peta) or in national data centres.
R&D/ILRT has a long track record in RDF and Semantic Web technologies - especially Jena. We are currently using Cassandra on a large-scale saas application for UK Higher Education. Planned work is likely to involve Hadoop for text mining work and Galaxy for Next Generation Sequencing work.
