Where Linked Data Meets Services

iServe is a platform for publishing Semantic Web Services as linked data, no matter their original format. iServe addresses the publication of services from a novel perspective based upon lessons learnt from the evolution of the Web of Data. It transforms service annotations expressed in a variety of formats including SAWSDL, OWL-S and MicroWSMO into what we refer to as Linked Services linked data describing services that can directly be interpreted by state of the art Semantic Web technologies for their discovery and further processing.

Multimedia and Information Systems
Our research is centred around the theme of Multimedia Information Retrieval, ie, Video Search Engines, Image Databases, Spoken Document Retrieval, Music Retrieval, Query Languages and Query Mediation.

We focus on content-based information retrieval over a wide range of data spanning form unstructured text and unlabelled images over spoken documents and music to videos. This encompasses the modelling of human perception of relevance and similarity, the learning from user actions and the up-to-date presentation of information. Currently we are building a research version of an integrated multimedia information retrieval system MIR to be used as a research prototype. We aim for a system that understands the user's information need and successfully links it to the appropriate information sources, be it a report or a TV news clip. This work is guided by the vision that an automated knowledge extraction system ultimately empowers people making efficient use of information sources without the burden of filing data into specialised databases.
