Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) is building a software task
force to support its strategic activities related to integrated data
science and collaborative, integrated modeling on the semantic web.
The team, which is expected to eventually include three software
engineers, will contribute to the development and maintenance of the
a semantic web infrastructure that uses artificial intelligence to
build computational solutions to environment, policy and
sustainability problems. The open source k.LAB software includes
client and server components that connect data and models from
distributed repositories, guided by machine reasoning over a set of
shared ontologies. This technology, based on machine reasoning,
machine learning, distributed computing and high-performance,
multi-disciplinary and multi-paradigm system modeling, is the
flagship product of the Integrated
which is expected to serve a growing number of worldwide users (from
academia, governments, NGOs and industry) in the years to come.
