My research is centered around dynamic aspects of the Semantic Web. In my research, I connect the modelling of behaviour (eg. from Artificial Intelligence, Business Process Modelling, and dynamical systems) with web technologies for knowledge representation (RDF) and system interaction (HTTP). With this basis at hand, we can specify simple web agents, also called intelligent clients, which can automate things for you on the web, the Internet of Things, or in Industry 4.0. I look into workflow languages to specify behaviour in a more user-friendly fashion. On the experimental side of my work, I investigate the dynamics of Linked Data on the Web using analytics techniques to find out whether my formal ideas can ever work in practice.
Find me on Github, where I publish Read-Write Linked Data (REST + Linked Data) intefaces to systems, IoT sensors and actuators, and services.
