Architecture of the HOBBIT Platform

During the runtime of the HOBBIT project, we have collected several requirements from the community which should be fulfilled by a Big Linked Data benchmarking platform. All these requirements influenced the final architecture of our platform. However, this blog post will focus on its central functionality: we want to offer a platform that enables any […]

Hobbit @ DEBS 2017

Using HOBBIT platform at DEBS Grand Challenge considered as major improvement At this year’s Distributed Events Processing Systems conference (DEBS 2017) the HOBBIT platform has demonstrated its ability to objectively quantify the performance of anomaly detection algorithms that process RDF data in real-time. Dr. Roman Katerinenko and Dr. Martin Strohbach, both AGT International were representing […]

A platform for benchmarking Big Linked Data solutions

One of the major goals of the HOBBIT project is to provide a benchmarking platform supporting the benchmarking of Big Linked Data solutions. This platform needs to a) enable benchmarking in a b) scalable way on c) different platforms and d) support the execution of benchmarking challenges. Additionally, the platform should be made available as […]

HOBBIT’s Linking and Spatial Benchmarks

The number of datasets published in the Web of Data as part of the Linked Data Cloud is constantly increasing. The Linked Data paradigm is based on the unconstrained publication of information by different publishers, and the interlinking of Web resources across knowledge bases.  In most cases, the cross-dataset links are not explicit in the […]

Faceted Browsing: approaches and benchmark

Faceted browsing stands for a session-based and state-dependent interactive method for query formulation over a multi-dimensional information space. It provides a user with an effective way for exploration of a search space. After having defined the initial search space, i.e., the set of resources of interest to the user, a browsing scenario consists of applying […]

HOBBIT collaborates with EuroStars project DIESEL

HOBBIT collaborates with European research projects to support their benchmarking activities. One of the ongoing collaborations is with the DIESEL project, which aims to develop a Linked-Data driven keyword search engine suited for handling extensive amounts of enterprise data. HOBBIT and DIESEL teamed up to provide a supplementary dataset for the QALD-7 challenge at the […]

Question Answering: approaches and benchmark

Question Answering (QA) systems aim at providing correct answers to natural language queries, typically on the basis of one or more structured datasets which constitute their “knowledge base”. These systems are becoming increasingly available for both domain specific applications and broad everyday life adoption (just think of Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Home). However, significant challenges […]

Data Storage: Approaches and Benchmark

The demand for efficient RDF storage technologies has grown steadily in recent years. This  is due to the increasing number of Linked Data datasets and applications exploiting Linked Data resources. In particular, a growing number of applications require RDF storage solutions capable of answering interactive SPARQL queries. Given the increasing number of solutions for RDF […]
