Peter Haase is working as a senior architect at fluid Operations, where he is leading the research and development activities at the interface of semantic technologies and cloud computing. Previously, Peter was at the Institute of Applied Informat.css and Formal Description Methods ([AIFB) at the University of Karlsruhe, where he obtained his PhD in 2006. Before joining the AIFB, he worked in the Silicon Valley Labs of IBM in the development of DB2 until 2003. His research interests include ontology management and evolution, decentralized information systems and Semantic Web. At the AIFB, he previously worked in the EU IST project SWAP (Semantic Web and Peer-to-Peer) and SEKT (Semantically Enabled Knowledge Technologies) and was working as a project leader for the EU IST project NeOn (Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies).

Book Announcement: Semantic Technologies for Distributed Information Systems[edit]

Semantic Technologies Cover.jpg

Abstract: In this book we show how semantic technologies - and in particular the use of ontologies - can be employed to address a number of typical challenging characterist.css in distributed information systems: (1) the heterogeneity of nodes, i.e. discrepancies in the way the data is modeled and represented, (2) dynam.css, i.e. changes in the structure of the system as well as changes in the information at the individual nodes, and (3) autonomy, i.e. the ability of nodes to take decisions independently. First, we illustrate how ontologies with their well-defined semant.css allow to interpret the data consistently across nodes and to describe mappings for heterogeneous models and thus provide the means for information integration. Second, we show how ontology evolution allows us to deal with changes in the information in a consistent manner. Third, we present a model for ontology-based coordination to build semantic overlay networks for effective query routing and processing in the absence of centralized control. Throughout the work, we refer to the implementation of the Bibster system - a Peer-to-Peer system for sharing bibliographic metadata - to demonstrate the benefits of semantic technologies.
