I believe in a Web on whichRuben Verborgh semantic hypermedia researcher
clients possess more intelligence
than the servers they use.
I'm a researcher in semantic hypermedia at Data Science Lab, a group within iMinds and Ghent University, and a postdoctoral fellow of the Research Foundation Flanders. I love to discuss about the Semantic Web, hypermedia clients, Web APIs, Linked Data, Web architecture, and much more. If you like these things too, then we should talk.
My belief is that if we want to see intelligent clients, we should stop trying to build intelligent servers. We should shift our focus towards new methods of building clients that emphasize serendipitous reuse of data and functionality.
I'm involved in the following projects:
- Linked Data Fragments
- Query Linked Data on a Web scale by moving intelligence to the client.
- 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 through open source projects.
- Distributed Affordance
- Create personalized links through semantics and Web APIs.
