Programmable Access to Distributed Data: Design of Semantic Bridge

Programmable Access, Semantic Bridge, Distributed Data


Semantic Bridge focuses on providing scalable programmable access to unknown, remote data. Using semantic-based principles with a shared domain model, the most recent Java technologies, and advances in artificial intelligence, we enable data users to write implementation-independent database programs. These abstract programs are then automatically transformed into executables that run within a secure `sandbox' at each data source and return the processed results to the remote user. The data sources need to define the visibility rules for different categories of users and make that data accessible to remote user programs. The data side need not provide any implementations.
