Biography

I am the Director of the Knowledge and Data Engineering Group (KDEG). I have been key the growth and development of this research group, which now totals 9 academics and over 50 postdocs and PhD students. I collaborate closely with other group academics in securing a growing portfolio of funding for the group and I have personally secured €5.4 Million in competitive research funding. I am a PI in CNGL Centre for Global Intelligent Content which is funded from the SFI Centres for Science Engineering and Technology (CSET) programme. CNGL is centred in KDEG and has received SFI funding for TCD and its collaborating institutions of over €50 Million over the last 7 years. I am also a PI in the ADAPT Centre, which is the successor to CNGL, and has just been awarded a further €23 Million funding from the SFI accompanied by €7.5 Million cash funding from industry. I have been active in developing KDEG's internal organisation to efficiently manage the steadily growing cohort of PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and research assistants, including the provision of seminar series, workshops, training, mentoring and commercialisation supports. I have led research teams in 9 EU and 7 Irish funded collaborative projects which involve: close collaboration with other TCD academics and international academic and industrial partners; formation and coordination of research plans; negotiation of and controlling expenditure within agreed budgets; and dealing effectively with sponsors. My research interest is in Management Knowledge, and how it can be captured, modelled, analysed and exchanged in decentralised decision-making settings. I have been responsible for several undergraduate (4ICT12, 3ICT1 and CS3BC2) and postgraduate (CS7009) taught modules and supervision of 6 undergraduate and 23 MSc dissertation projects. I have supervised 5 PhD students to completion, co-supervised 6 more and have 4 PhD student in progress currently.

Research Expertise

Description

My research interest is in Management Knowledge, and how it can be captured, modelled, analysed and exchanged in decentralised decision-making settings. I am therefore interested in developing data and knowledge engineering techniques for management knowledge that is used to achieve shared goals in situations where decision-making authority is not centralised, but diffused across multiple individuals or organisations. For such collaborative decision-making, I investigate the use of declarative knowledge techniques, including open data formats, ontological knowledge formats such as description logic and declarative operational instructions such as policy rules, service specifications and workflow models. The effectiveness of employing these techniques is measured through: i) The ease with which software engineers can integrate knowledge sharing models with native data models existing in legacy and proprietary management systems. ii) The additional computational and data retrieval loads imposed by employing declarative, knowledge-based representations of management information, compared to existing solutions with implicit representations. iii) The reduction in cognitive load for human decision makers against their need to compensate for the shortfalls exhibited by automated decision support that from components leveraging explicit management knowledge, e.g. in accuracy of machine-learning and natural language processing (NLP) components and the limits in domain knowledge completeness in reasoning components. iv) The degree to which decision-makers can assimilate knowledge in making accurate and timely management decisions and the impact of personalised and interactive data visualsiation techniques. Application of these techniques and their evaluation has had impact in the following application areas: a) Telecommunications Management: I was an early proponent of the extensible mark-up language for management information exchange and services, highlighting the performance and engineering tradeoffs. This approach is now common place in the telecoms industry, where long value chains are common. I also championed the topic of open semantic knowledge formats and issues of federated management in the research community. b) Smart Building Management: Here we have used open semantic models and 3D interactive data representations to enable building occupants and building managers to reconcile the management of several heterogeneous heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems; location tracking and environmental sensors and electronic access control systems to achieve physical security, comfort and energy efficiency. c) Online Communities: These exhibit a high degree decentralisation in managing the conduct of the community and the creation and sharing of digital resources, here we developed and evaluated a novel set of design considerations for developing community data visualisation tools to assist community decision-making. d) Intelligent Content Processing: This field addresses the application of NLP and personalisation technology to the processing of digital content, primarily in applications aimed at engaging with customers, citizens and leaners online. This is the core topic of CNGL and the new ADAPT Centre. Here I have pioneered the use of open semantic models to monitor the interplay between human language workers (e.g. translators & terminologists) and NLP components, and curating the result to improve those components. I have therefore demonstrated a substantial and sustained research output in decentralised management knowledge applied to a number of domains.

Projects

  • Title
    • ADAPT Centre
  • Summary
    • The ADAPT Centre will address the grand challenge in Digital Platform Content and Applications: how can enterprises, institutions and individuals easily assimilate, reuse and interact with the global torrent of digital content? Transitioning from the Centre for Global Intelligent Content(CNGL), ADAPT will build upon demonstrated, world-recognised research and significant commercial impacts of the multidisciplinary applicant group to develop breakthroughs in Global Digital Content technology, which will turn this heterogeneous torrent of content into meaningful global conversations between organisations and users. This will be achieved by making unprecedented advances in the areas of multilingual natural language processing (NLP), multimedia content analysis and transformation, personalisation and multimodal delivery. The ADAPT Centre's research programme will enable: deeper understanding of multilingual content through multilingual NLP; dynamic transformation of multimedia content to break down language and cultural barriers; personalisation of the user experience to ensure rapid assimilation and reuse of content; and multimodal/multimedia interaction with global content for natural user engagement. ADAPT will deliver measurable world-class research and economic impact: 1650 publications, 200 high-quality postgraduates, 12 spin-out companies, 80 licences to industry and over 500 jobs. This will revolutionise Global Digital Content R&D with unprecedented societal impact and benefit to the Irish economy, and beyond.

  • Summary
    • SFI CSET 2nd Plase funding: One of the most significant changes to people's lives in recent years has been the explosion of content available to users, enterprises and communities. The Content Revolution is at the heart of a new, empowering trend which sees enterprises and users in new roles as creators, curators and consumers of content, in social and corporate contexts. The scale of this change is astonishing: over 175 million tweets will be sent per day in 2012 (Solis, 2012), with the majority in languages other than English. Today Facebook alone is larger than the entire World Wide Web (WWW) in 2004 (Solis, 2011). New content is not restricted to text, but includes richer media, with 60 hours of video uploaded every minute, or one hour every second to YouTube. (YouTube, 2012). Filtering and personalised retrieval are emerging as key trends in accessing content, with Google using as many as 57 different signals to influence search (Pariser, 2011)(Boyd, 2011). However, these trends do not address the desire of organisations, communities and individuals for content and services to be delivered in their own language, according to their own needs, preferences and context. Fundamental challenges arise in the way content can be dynamically created, curated, processed and delivered for global usage. CNGL II (Centre for Next Generation Localisation II) seeks to revolutionise the way people can seamlessly interact with content, systems and each other to achieve unprecedented levels of access, efficiency and empowerment. Breakthroughs in the processing, unification and seamless integration of multilingual, multi-modal and multimedia content are key goals in enabling the global content industry and society of the future. CNGL II will pioneer a new concept called 'Global Intelligent Content'. Global Intelligent Content will enable digital content to be more discoverable, adaptable and repurposeable. By embedding new levels of knowledge and intelligence into the content, it will enable advanced intelligent content services to automatically process and transform that content. Global Intelligent Content will thus enable itself to be actively discovered and transformed by advanced intelligent content services so as to make that content more discoverable, semantically rich, adaptable, contextually aware and reusable across global markets. This represents a major shift in the way content is managed, creating a more robust, agile and interoperable relationship between content and the value chain of services acting upon it. In this way Global Intelligent Content can be dynamically transformed based on current user interaction, perceived user intention or current delivery context.

    • Centre for Next Generation Localisation
  • Summary
    • Language barriers constitute a formidable obstacle to the free flow of information, products and services in an increasingly globalised economy and information society. "Localisation" refers to the process of adapting digital content to culture, locale and linguistic environments at high quality and speed. Localisation is a key enabling, value-adding, multiplier component of the global software and content distribution industry. Localisation seeks to overcome language barriers. The Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) is a Academia-Industry partnership with over 100 researchers developing novel technologies addressing the key localisation challenges of volume, access and personalisation. Its objective is to produce substantial advances in the basic and applied research underpinning the design, implementation and evaluation of the blueprints for the Next Generation Localisation Factory. Our mission is to revolutionise localisation via breakthroughs in automation, composition and integration, focusing on: (i)Integrated machine translation technology, (ii) Speech-based interfaces and more personalised speech output, (iii) Multilingual digital content management for personalised multilingual content access and delivery, (iv) Localisation workflows and system integration. Dr Lewis' team focusses on the latter, systems integration, including the models and methods for the rapid integration of workflows, service oriented architectures and service management.

  • Summary
    • Federated Active Linguistic data CuratiON: This project will deliver a modular software platform that will enable SMEs in the localisation industry to leverage open language resources published by public bodies. This platform will bootstrap a commercially sustainable localisation process that allows SME Language Service Providers (LSPs) to continuously reuse the output of web content translation projects. By integrating these outputs with language resources from public bodies, SME LSPs can easily and cheaply optimise and tailor open source machine translation and automated terminology extraction components to the needs of their customers. Today, the curation of parallel text involves the publication of the undifferentiated results of translation projects in differing formats or via centralised repositories. This restricts SMEs in leveraging these resources to train machine translation engines to match incoming translation projects. FALCON will enable the controlled sharing and reuse of language resources, combining open corpora from public bodies with richly annotated output from commercial translation projects. Federated access control will enable sharing and reuse of commercial resources while respecting business partnerships, client relationships, competitive and licensing concerns. Fine grained traceability language resource reuse will enable return on investment calculations on resource curation in public bodies and SME LSPs alike. The consortium combines academic expertise in localisation interoperability, linked data management, statistical machine translation and statistical parsing with SMEs offering services and solutions for translation and terminology management. This project will enable the language service industry to realise its potential as a major sources of shared linked data by measurably improving cost, speed and quality benefits of reuse. The consortium members will then be strongly placed to commercially exploit these benefits.

  • Summary
    • Linked Data as an enabler of cross-media and multilingual content analytics for enterprises across Europe: The explosive growth of content in volume, velocity and variety on the Web demands new approaches to content analytics, addressing issues in large scale analysis and interpretation of heterogeneous data sets, originating in different media, human languages, jurisdictions, etc. Among these, language diversity in particular has become a ubiquitous aspect of the Web in light of increasing globalization. Recently, semantic-level, i.e., language- and media-independent, data analysis and representation methods such as those provided by Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies, have been introduced to provide innovative content analytics solutions for such heterogeneous, multilingual and multimedia content. An important missing component however, is the representation of language- and media-specific information that will be needed for interpreting such data correctly - across different media and across the increasing variety of human languages used nowadays on the Web. In this proposal we therefore aim at addressing this missing component by providing an ecosystem for the establishment of a new Linked Open Data (LOD) based ecosystem of free, interlinked, and semantically interoperable language (corpora, dictionaries, lexical and syntactic metadata, etc.) and media (image, video, etc. metadata) resources that will allow for free and open exploitation of such resources in multilingual, cross-media content analytics across the EU and beyond, with specific use cases in different industries. LIDER addresses three key objectives: 1. To support multilingual and multimedia content analytics in enterprises. 2. To provide a discussion platform for the development of novel LOD based multilingual, cross-media content analytics systems that will be able to use Free, Open and Interoperable language and media resources and services. 3. To reach consensus on short and long term goals in LOD-based multilingual, cross-media content analytics in enterprises.

    • Management of Ubiquitous Computing Environments

      Pervasive computing environments are commonly regarded as being made up of a multitude of autonomous elements collaborating to sense and respond to a user's requirements and the context of the task-at-hand. The management of pervasive computing environments therefore requires runtime understanding of a user's task requirements and operational context, the state of resources available to support the user's tasks as well as the broader management policies that also govern those resources. At the same time, the dynamic, ad hoc nature of pervasive computing environments requires an integrated, context-aware and self-organizing approach to their management. Autonomic systems self-manage their configuration, performance and integrity based on high-level goals set by users and administrators, and are therefore are well suited to the management of pervasive computing environment.

      In this project, KDEG addresses how management of pervasive computing must balance the need to hide the complexities of adaptive service operation, while at the same time providing suitable levers of control and windows of inspection through which users can maintain a sense of ownership over adaptive service behaviour. With a system offering highly adaptive services to users, the management task of enforcing responsibilities over resources is essentially one of constraining the range of adaptivity the system can exhibit in different situations. These constraints must themselves adapt to a heterogeneous, ever-changing set of resources, that will be difficult to determine a priori. The work in this project focuses on: seamless interoperability amidst a high level of organisation heterogeneity at development time and runtime; service composition as the primary adaptive mechanism; satisfy management goals using policy-based management and supporting the needs of users both as individuals and as collaborative communities. Experimentation has involved some use of sensor and actuation systems, but has been effectively accelerated by the development of a 3D, multi-user simulator of smart spaces.

    • Managed Extensible Control Plane for Knowledge-Based Networking

      This project addresses the problem of deploying and managing a global semantic event network, over which event messages are efficiently routed from producers to consumers based on the meaning of their content. It aims to allow novel networking features to be added incrementally, such as the routing based on the trust that consumers place in producers or the similarity, rather than matching, of the meaning of messages to the interest of the consumer. This is delivered within a flexible management framework that enables incremental roll-out and encourages innovation.

      The approach taken is to develop an open, extensible control plane for a global event service, based on semantically rich messages. This will be achieved by the novel application of control plane separation and semantic-based matching to Content-Based Networks. However, the primary benefits derive from exploiting peer-clustering techniques for distributed ontology queries to achieve efficient aggregation of semantic queries. The clustering of super-peers using decentralised policy engineering delivers the incremental deployment of new peer-clustering strategies. This will be demonstrated by implementing trust-awareness and semantic interoperability in a composite routing control scheme.

  • Summary
    • Autonomic Computing Coordinating Action

      ACCA is a collaborative project aiming at outlining the scope of an emerging communication paradigm - autonomic communication in application to various aspects of communication and from viewpoints of different stakeholders. The vision is that of a world pervaded by ubiquitous communication facilities, offering their services to the users and capable of self-organizing and self-preserving their functionalities without any direct human intervention. This entails fundamental advances both in the architecture and functionality of the network, and in the characterization and understanding of the common communication medium.

      KDEG's contribution has been in roadmapping research in the following:

    • Modelling of the policy-based governance process for autonomic communication as a two way process focussed on mutual understanding of system and governors and the rapid stabilisation of policy set.
    • Providing a service that flexibly and securely delivers autonomic knowledge between autonomic agents based on content-based networking principles.
    • Establishing semantic models to start addressing the problem of evaluating adaptive and autonomic systems.

    • Platform for User Centred Design and Evaluation of Context-Aware Adaptive Service

      This project is developing a platform for the user-centred design and evaluation of adaptive, context-aware services for the wireless, mobile and pervasive computing markets. The platform is an integrated set of tools that allows models of adaptive service behaviour to be captured and used to evaluate the user's experience in using the implemented service in different contexts. The platform uses a 3D virtual reality environment to deliver repeatable, instrumented, context-dependent evaluations. Service developers will benefit from reduced development costs and more effective user-empowering services. Initially we plan commercialisation to target the location aware service development market.

      KDEG's contribution focusses on the user-centred design and testing of context-aware adaptive services. It is innovative in applying a semantic model-driven approach to the tight integration of the rapid prototyping of adaptive service behaviour and the efficient evaluation of its usability. This approach is novel in directly aiming to reduce the cost and improving the accuracy of user-centred evaluation of adaptive services by the easy configuration of simulations of a wide range of real-world settings for user invocation of the services, e.g. indoor and outdoor, single user and collaborative, ad hoc or structured, cellular or WLAN access etc. As adaptive services exhibit a range of behaviour, the aim is not to verify the correctness of system behaviour but to verify that it operates within a well defined behavioural envelope given for specific regions of the possible context space that corresponds to the overall testing goals.

  • Summary
    • Incorporating and validation sensor capabilities into a pervasive computing simulation tool

      Embedded sensors provide an electronically sensed view of the environment to application services which is used to adapt the service to users' changing social, physical and user-task context. It is the user's perception of how appropriately that sensed context is used to adaptively provide application services that determines the success of the application. In practice, exploration and thus understanding of the interactions of a pervasive computing environment is only possible through trial deployment and user evaluation on a case by case basis. This is expensive and as a result a significant barrier to the development of pervasive computing applications.

      This project will develop a simulation model of Tyndall sensor motes and integrating this into the PUDECAS simulator platform. The simulator will be extended to simulate propagation or presence of varying physical conditions, such a noise, heat, light, motion and humidity. These new models will be validated by comparisons drawn between our simulated model of TCD's Lloyd Institute and a real deployment in the physical Lloyd building.

  • Summary
    • The goal of LT-Web is to set the foundation for the integration of language technologies into core Web technologies, via the creation of a standard defining three kinds of metadata about: 1) information in Web content being relevant for language technology processing; 2) processes for creating Web content via localisation and content management work flows; 3) language technology applications and resources used in these applications. The organizations participating in LT-Web will join the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and create a group defining the metadata standard, within the Internationalization Activity of W3C. Using the credibility and outstanding position of W3C, LT-Web will create broad consensus across communities, involving producers of content, localization workers, language technology experts, browser vendors and users. W3C will help to establish a network between stakeholders in these communities, to ensure the long-term adoption of the metadata standard and future opportunities for integrating language technologies and emerging Web technologies. Finally, LT-Web will lay the technical foundations for new business opportunities, to reach out to a growing linguistic and cultural diversity of Web users in the European Union and its trade partners, and to respond to their specific needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.

    • Knoholem
  • Summary
    • Knowledge-based energy management for public buildings through holistic information modeling and 3D visualization Energy efficiency in the building sector through intelligent energy management is a key measure for the global reduction of greenhouse gas emitted by this sector and additionally facilitates user costs reduction in the context of growing energy prices and harshness of natural resources. The KnoholEM project's aim is the engineering of an intelligent energy management solution that will considerably reduce energy consumption, both by systematically avoiding energy wasting in buildings and by knowledge-based holistic optimization of energy consumption. The solution will be applicable and configurable for a broadband of building types from any EU region. The intelligent energy management solution will be based on existing knowledge representation technologies like functional modeling and ontology, which will be used in the context of smart buildings in combination with Building Automation Systems. It will be enhanced by energy consumption behavior simulation with realistic visualization assistance. Approaches previously developed by the project partners will be integrated into a holistic intelligent energy management solution. The focus of the project will not be on development, but on detailed analysis and validation. KnoholEM includes four types of demonstration objects in Spain and the Netherlands that will be used by the consortium of industry and research partners to develop, enhance and extensively test the solution. An overall knowledge base will be created through a detailed analysis of the structure of the demonstration object buildings and their energy consuming/producing devices, through the intelligent interlinking of building usage with its energy demand, as well as by various energy consumption behavior simulations. Through the knowledge accumulated within the extended validation phase, KnoholEM will facilitate up to 30% of energy savings, depending on the building. The 13 partners from 6 countries will ensure an efficient and inexpensive EU-wide application of the results after the end of the project.
