Enabling Intelligent Systems, Applications, and Analytics for Smart Environments Using Real-time Linked Dataspaces

Open Access


The design of next-generation smart environments poses significant technical challenges with data management, data integration, and real-time processing of dynamic data, and non-technical challenges such as engaging end-users and supporting cultural and organisational changes. Real-time Linked Dataspaces (RLD) are data platforms designed explicitly to tackle these challenges. In this chapter, we provide an overview of how a Real-time Linked Dataspace enables the creation of intelligent systems within several smart environments to demonstrate and evaluate their effectiveness.
