Insight Centre for Data Analytics - INSIGHT - Research

Course overview

Insight's Web Science agenda focuses on (i) analysing the topology, dynamics, content and user behaviour of the Web and the impact of underlying algorithms, protocols and architectures, (ii) designing and evaluating innovations in semantically enhanced technology for its future and (iii) ensuring its continuing benefit to various aspects of society.
Our central hypothesis is that the creation of a “network of knowledge” can assist people, organisations and systems with their individual as well as collective problem solving, enabling innovation and increased productivity and also helping to bridge the gap between the physical and virtual worlds through the inclusion of emerging sensor technologies.
