Emanuele Storti


Post-Doctoral Researcher







Research Areas

  • Semantics and Knowledge Representation
  • Ontology-Based Data Access & Query Rewriting
  • Knowledge Discovery in Databases
  • Data Mining algorithms


 Research Activity
  • Development of KPIONTO and support semantic services for consistency management: a formal ontology to describe Key Performance Indicators and their properties, including the mathematical formulas needed to their computation, tied to collaborative and distributed environments. A set of semantics-based services allows for the verification of consistency among the set of formulas.
  • Co-investigator of the European Project BIVEE (FoF-ICT-2011.7.3-285746): a service-oriented ICT platform to enable Business Innovation in Virtual Factories and Enterprises. Development of methods for semantic reconciliation of heterogeneous data coming from multiple distributed enterprises, and usage of automatic reasoning for advanced support in data monitoring and innovation management.
  • KDDVM Project: an open, collaborative and distributed service-oriented platform for supporting users in design and management of KDD processes. The system provides languages for semantic annotation of tools and services for tool discovery and composition
  • Development of KDDONTO: a formal ontology for describing Data Mining and KDD algorithms, methods, task and data structures, aimed at supporting KDD service discovery and composition
  • Process Composition: procedures for semi-automatic composition of KDD processes. Workflows are generated by building chains of tools with semantically compatible interfaces, and by performing matching functions.
  • Graph mining: application of hierarchical clustering techniques to extract interesting patterns from graph representation of business processes or scientific workflows. Patterns can be used to get insights about the domain because they are common subworkflows.
