AI3SD Video: Semantic Web in Scientific Research – Possibilities & Practices
The use of semantic web technologies within scientific research has slowly gained momentum over the last twenty years. Researchers have realised that these technologies are key to dealing with large volumes of data, and that they enable better organisation of scientific documents and practices. However, we still have a long way to go before these technologies realise their true potential, and this is as much a human endeavour as a technological one. This talk will discuss the affordances of the semantic web, demonstrating where it can be used across the entire scientific research process; but it will also note some lessons learned throughout the last twenty years, and provide some recommendations for going forward in the future.

Abstract

The use of semantic web technologies within scientific research has slowly gained momentum over the last twenty years. Researchers have realised that these technologies are key to dealing with large volumes of data, and that they enable better organisation of scientific documents and practices. However, we still have a long way to go before these technologies realise their true potential, and this is as much a human endeavour as a technological one. This talk will discuss the affordances of the semantic web, demonstrating where it can be used across the entire scientific research process; but it will also note some lessons learned throughout the last twenty years, and provide some recommendations for going forward in the future.

Published date: 10 February 2021
Additional Information: Samantha Kanza is an Enterprise Fellow at the University of Southampton. She completed her MEng in Computer Science at the University of Southampton and then worked for BAE Systems Applied Intelligence for a year before returning to do an iPhD in Web Science (in Computer Science and Chemistry), which focused on Semantic Tagging of Scientific Documents and Electronic Lab Notebooks. She was awarded her PhD in April 2018. Samantha works in the interdisciplinary research area of applying computer science techniques to the scientific domain, specifically through the use of semantic web technologies and artificial intelligence. Her research includes looking at electronic lab notebooks and smart laboratories, to improve the digitization and knowledge management of the scientific record using semantic web technologies; and using IoT devices in the laboratory. She has also worked on a number of interdisciplinary Semantic Web projects in different domains, including agriculture, chemistry and the social sciences.
