Real-time Linked Dataspaces

The Real-time Linked Dataspace (RLD) is an enabling platform for data management for intelligent systems within smart environments that combines the pay-as-you-go paradigm of dataspaces, linked data, and knowledge graphs with entity-centric real-time query capabilities.

The RLD contains all the relevant information within a data ecosystem including things, sensors, and data sources and has the responsibility for managing the relationships among these participants.

It manages sources without presuming a pre-existing semantic integration among them using specialised dataspace support services for loose administrative proximity and semantic integration for event and stream systems. Support services leverage approximate and best-effort techniques and operate under a 5 star model for “pay-as-you-go” incremental data management.
