The Pilot

I am PhD candidate with the Adapt Centre at the Trinity College Dublin. My current area of research is around the Semantic Web, Linked Data and related technologies; more specifically legal side of it. I am investigating how the concepts of privacy, intellectual property and licensing influence that side of the web. My main supervisor is Dr. Dave Lewis.
