Web of Data Interpreter (WoDI) is a recently launched spin-off company from the LarKC project, currently located in Innsbruck, Austria. The targeted development segment of WoDI is the implementation of intelligent tools and methods for accessing, reasoning and consuming linked data. The main areas of WoDI innovation are scalable reasoning with rules and streams of data, and pluggable and modular architectures for semantic systems based on LarKC results and technology.
The founders of WoDI have many years of experience with semantic technologies and software engineering, and were actively involved in the LarKC project as researchers and developers.
The methods and algorithms developed in LarKC for reasoning with very large datasets, including both static data and data streams, are the starting point in the development of WoDI’s business intelligence solutions for areas such as eTourism and eCommerce. On the one hand, WoDI is exploiting the results from research in stream reasoning for building scalable solutions for logical reasoning in real time on very large and noisy data streams. Processing and reasoning over data streams is a challenging task that is gaining considerable attention given the increasing number of applications that publish online streams of data such as Twitter, or Facebook, and the multitude of sensors and aggregators that generate streams of information from the physical world. WoDI is building solutions that process and reason over data streams enabling intelligent integration and usage of relevant information. Inspired by LarKC results in the area of stream reasoning, WoDI aims at building a stream reasoning engine (called WoDI Turbine) that will meet the requirements and expectations of commercial, real-world environments. As a baseline, WoDI will leverage the architecture and design principles behind the LarKC platform, and adapt and customize the modular, pluggable, and scalable LarKC 2.0 platform for its integrated business solutions.
The data processing and reasoning tools of WoDI will not only be realized with data streams in mind, but also for working with static, interlinked data that is available as part of the Linking Open Data cloud. The importance for novel business intelligence solutions based on reasoning over streams and static data channels in combination with various other data sources becomes especially important in today’s dynamic, information-driven world.
