Manolis currently participates in H2020 project AI4Copernicus (2021-2023, as Technical Manager of this project which brings Copernicus data the the AI4EU platform) and DeepCube (2021-2023, where he leads the work on Semantic Data Cubes).

Keynote talk: “Geospatial Interlinking with JedAI-spatial”

Abstract: Geospatial data has escalated tremendously over the years. The
outbreak of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, smartphones, position
tracking applications and location-based services has skyrocketed
the volume of geospatial data. For example, 100TB of weather-related
data is produced everyday1; Uber hit the milestone of 5
billion rides among 76 countries already on May 20, 20172. Web
platforms like OpenStreetMap provide an open and editable map of
the whole world. Geospatial Interlinking aims to cover this gap by associating pairs of geometries with topological relations like those of the Dimensionally Extended 9-Intersection Model (DE-9IM). As a result, Geospatial Interlinking involves a high computational cost that does not scale to large Web datasets.
