Seamless integration of teaching, research and applications An innovative, integrated approach forms the core framework of the teaching, research and practical applications of the Faculty.

Our study programmes evolve naturally from our research activities, so that students of all levels have opportunity to work directly on software development projects that have real-world impact for business, the public, and the international research community.
Our teaching offer comprises all three levels of studies: Bachelor, Master and PhD. Our jewel in the crown are our European Masters degrees, which foresee periods of study at partner universities and a double degree.

We are particualrly committed to research. An excellent infrastructure and an international and dynamic teaching body create the ideal environment for this and our research projects are internationally recognised and financed through national and European funds, with frequent contributions from local companies and public institutions.

Our strong focus on research does not make us neglect real-world applications. Our Faculty works in close collaboration with local entities, organises common endeavours and addresses actual demands of enterprises, local government and schools.

Scientific Lenses over Linked Data: An Approach to Support Multiple Integrated Views - A KRDB SeminarExternal eventsWhen are two entries about a concept in different datasets the same? If they have the same name, properties, or some other criteria? The choice depends upon the application to which the data will be put. However, existing Linked Data approaches provide a single global view over the data with no way of varying the notion of equivalence to be applied.   In this presentation, prof. Alasdair Gray will introduce Scientific Lenses, an approach that enables applications to vary the equivalence conditions between linked datasets. They have been deployed in the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform – a large-scale data integration platform for drug discovery. To cater for different use cases, the platform allows the application of different lenses which vary the equivalence rules to be applied based on the context and interpretation of the links.
