Research is the core task of STI Innsbruck. Our motto is "Enabling Semantics". Find out more about our current research directions!
Semantic technologies are at the heart of the future Web providing ways to express knowledge and data so that it can be properly exploited. These technologies will empower a new class of Information and Communication Technologies much more scalable, interoperable, and with a higher degree of process automation support that will fulfill the needs of an emergence market that will exceed $10 billion by 2010. This is a very active research area, but still suffers from a lack of standard benchmarks and infrastructures for assessing research outcomes. SEALS addresses two key challenges: the creation of a lasting reference infrastructure for semantic technology evaluation and the continuous benchmarking of semantic technologies at a large scale via public worldwide evaluation campaigns.
