Marco Monti and Alessandro Faraotti from IBM Italia S.p.A. start their secondments in Aberdeen University. They will work on the work packages 5 and 6. Specifically, the tasks are as follows.
– T5.1 Data Stream Management: This task will focus on the updating and maintenance of dynamic medical knowledge bases(such as that for pathology guidelines knowledge).
– T6.1 Stream Maintenance: Due to the nature of stream reasoning, historical data will be potentially used in the future thus large volume of stream will be maintained.
IBM Italia S.p.A. has a wealth of experiences in applying Semantic technologies in dealing with real world use cases. Hence the secondments will definitely transfer valuable knowledge and experience to Aberdeen University. IBM researchers will work with their Aberdeen colleagues on the requirements, the state of the art, and solutions in exploiting data in the scenario of Personalized Treatments for oncology patients.
