Research


Overview

Christian Bizer explores technical and economic questions concerning the development of global, decentralized information environments. His current research focus is the evolution of the World Wide Web from a medium for the publication of documents into a global dataspace. Christian Bizer has initialized the W3C Linking Open Data community effort which is interlinking large numbers of data sources on the Web. He co-founded the DBpedia project which derives a comprehensive knowledge base from Wikipedia. He also initialized the WebDataCommons project which monitors the deployment of RDFa, Microdata, and Microformat data on the Web by analyzing large Web crawls. Further results of his work include the Named Graphs data model which was adopted into the W3C SPARQL recommendation; the D2RQ mapping language which is widely used for publishing relational databases to the Web of Data; the Silk - Linking Framework, and the Berlin SPARQL Benchmark for measuring the performance of RDF stores. Christian Bizer holds an appointment as full professor at the University of Mannheim. Before moving to Mannheim, he headed the Web-based Systems Group at Freie Universität Berlin.
