S-CASE Ontology Repository

In today’s blog we take a look at the S-CASE Ontology Repository being developed by CERTH.

The S-CASE ontology repository is intended to facilitate interoperability by standardizing a series of logically well defined relationships that act as a connectivity tissue for bringing together heterogeneous ontologies.

In this way, domain ontologies remain independent from the network as a whole and so can each undergo development processes without impacting on one another in complex and difficult to control ways.

This approach can be seen as a continuation and extension of several research and development threads begun in a range of large-scale engineering areas, including software engineering and the efforts within ontological engineering of other European projects.

Each operation will be supported through the web user interface along with the corresponding REST API for accessing the functionalities remotely by any application or module. It will host all ontologies that will be developed within the S-CASE project and will be provided as a Cloud Service over the S-CASE Cloud infrastructure.

The technical infrastructure will support among others the operations of ontology navigation, browsing, searching, visualization, uploading and downloading.

S-CASE | Meet The Project – DELPHIS

We caught up with project partners DELPHIS to talk about their role in the S-CASE project and how they will validate the concept through their use case. Watch this short film to find out more.

When asked about her project involvement Marina Stamatiadou, Software Engineer at DELPHIS R&D department, told us:

“I always loved software engineering so I was inspired when I heard that this has to do with requirements and design and development, testing and all this stuff that has to do with software engineering.”

For Thanos Daskalopoulos, Chief of Product and Technology Development, the pilot will bring them a step closer to realising a crucial commercial goal:

“This is taking us closer to a data analytics as a service model, where different customer needs and discard data sets can be analysed as customised as needed.”

“The pilot involves our vision of creating a PaaS and will actually take our API’s one level down from today, inside WISE. That means that our partner and customer developers will be able to create their own orchestrations instead of only using the ones that WISE exposes.”
