Sixth TUC Meeting: Parallel and incremental materialisation of RDF/DATALOG in RDFox by Boris Motik (University of Oxford)
During the second day of the sixth TUC meeting, Boris Motik from University of Oxford presented his talk “Parallel and incremental materialisation of RDF/DATALOG in RDFox”.
Boris Motik is part of the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Group of the University of Oxford which conducts research in knowledge representation formalisms, ontology languages, the design, implementation and optimisation of reasoning systems, and applications in areas such as e-Science and the Semantic Web. Recently, the focus of its research has moved to RDF graph applications. During the talk he presents the outcome of all their research: RDFox, which is an RDF triplestore with some technical approaches that make it different. He introduces the main features of RDFox and makes an overview of the techniques the group has been working on so far, such as the parallel materialization of datalog and all the associated challenges, the handling of owl:sameAs via rewriting and the incremental materialisation maintenance.
