stefan bischof — semantic web researcher

I am a research scientist at Siemens AG Österreich, specifically in the research division Corporate Technology. I am working on Semantic Web technologies and (Industrial) Knowledge Graphs.

In November 2017 I successfully defended my doctoral thesis Complementary Methods for the Enrichment of Linked Data at the TU Wien under the supervision of Prof. Axel Polleres. The dissertation introduces and studies different methods to prepare and complete Linked Data for analysis: transparent reasoning on top of SPARQL, exploit equational knowledge, statistical methods and combinations. We used statistical city data as a basis for a concrete use case and implemented the methods in the Open City Data Pipeline prototype.
