On the 8th February I delivered a seminar to my department (KMi @ OU) in which I described the work I have been doing in the last two years for my postgraduate research. I started with a little bit of introduction about science. Shortly, I moved to the currently available technologies for keeping track of the […]
Smart Topic Miner (STM) is a web application which uses Semantic Web technologies to classify scholarly publications on the basis of Computer Science Ontology (CSO), a very large automatically generated ontology of research areas. STM was developed to support the Springer Nature Computer Science editorial team in classifying proceedings in the LNCS family. It […]

However, this […]
Clique Percolation Method (CPM) is an algorithm for finding overlapping communities within networks, intruduced by Palla et al. (2005, see references). This implementation in R, firstly detects communities of size k, then creates a clique graph. Each community will be represented by each connected component in the clique graph. Algorithm The algorithm performs the following […]
I joined the project in March 2016 until September 2016, as Project Officer. My activities in this project involved setting up a network of sensors linked to MK Smart Data Hub. These sensors monitor the soil moisture of our users in a trial period, so that we could perform the evaluation of the following technology: Unnecessary […]
Acknowledging new trends in the research environment is important for many stakeholders, such as researchers, institutional funding bodies, academic publishers, and companies. In particular, being able to identify them as soon as possible can bring an important strategical advantage. A trend is usually defined as the general direction in which something is evolving. It is […]
I recently joined the community of RStudio, which is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for R (an open source statistical language to make sense of data). My contribution is providing the Italian Translation of their cheatsheet (Schede di Riferimento).
This is the First Year Probation Report submitted for the registration to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Open University. Abstract Identifying and forecasting research trends is of critical importance for a variety of stakeholders, including researchers, academic publishers, institutional funding bodies, companies operating in the innovation space and others.
