Experimenting with Open Data
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Public (open) data are now provided by many governments and organizations. Access to them can be made through central repositories or applications such as Google public data. 1 On the other hand, usage is still very much human oriented; there is no global data download, the data need to be selected and prepared manually, and need to be decided data formatting. Experimenting with open data project aim is to design and to evaluate a research prototype for crawling open data repository and collecting extracted data.A key issue is to be able to automatically collect and organize data in order to ease their re-use. Our scenario here is not searching for a single and specific dataset, but downloading a full repository to see what we can expect/automate/extract/learn from this large set of data. This project will involve conducting a number of experiments to achieve this.
