Inferencing in the Large: Semantic Integration of Open-Data Tables

About

I am pursuing research in Data Science at the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore. The Semantic Web, Knowledge Representation and Inference problems over arbitrary data sets are my research interests. Currently, I am working largely on structured datasets and associated inferencing and interpretation of knowledge that can be gleaned from datasets on data.gov.in and other public domain. My focus is on developing unique models that can bring Knowledge Representation and Reasoning models, Semantic Web technologies, Machine Learning and Graph Networks together to better understand data and it's context. Prior to entering academics, I was working in the industry. I have over 20 years of IT experience that includes Large Program Management in the Retail, Telecom and Financial domains spanning diverse technologies (Business Intelligence and Analytics, Custom Applications, Managed Services Engagements) worth multi-million dollar revenues & spread across multiple geographies, Customer Acquisition and Retention, Process & Product Quality Assurance across delivery units, Managing Competency Groups / Centre of Excellence and Stakeholder Management covering Finance & Legal units & Partner Ecosystems. I am part of the Web Sciences Lab (WSL) at IIIT Bangalore.
