Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of interacting with machines in a more natural way than we currently do. Most people will agree machines are difficult sometimes.
Wouldn't it be great if a computer could understand what we want, instead of us having to explain our desires to a computer (in the way the computer wants it)?
In the Semantic Web vision, automated agents browse the Web for us—much like we do it ourselves these days. However, there is still a long way to go…
Yet, I believe things are heading in the right direction, and I want to be part of it.
This is why I'm pursuing a PhD degree at Multimedia Lab, a research group of iMinds and Ghent University. My interests include the Semantic Web, hypermedia APIs, Web services, adaptive hypermedia, and more. If you're still reading, we should talk.
- The lie of the API
- When you ask for an API, you will get one, even though you never needed it.
- Research is teamwork
- No research ever happens in isolation: collaboration drives us all.
- Can I SPARQL your endpoint?
- Perhaps the model in which a server does all the work, doesn't work.
To see what I'm working on at Multimedia Lab, take a look at my projects:
- Describe your hypermedia APIs so that automated agents can use them.
- Free Your Metadata
- Open up your precious metadata to the Web.
- Reasoning on the Web
- Discover Semantic Web reasoning with open source projects and documentation.
