Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    Abstract

    Many real world RDF collections are large compared with other real world data structures. Such large RDF collections evolve in a distributed environment. Therefore, these changes between RDF versions need to be detected and computed in order to synchronize these changes to the other users. To cope with the evolving nature of the semantic web, it is important to understand the costs and benefits of the different change detection techniques. In this paper, we experimentally provide a detailed analysis of the overall process of RDF change detection techniques namely: explicit change detection, forward-inference change detection, backward-inference change detection and backward-inference and pruning change detection. The results show that pruning is relatively expensive by comparison with inferencing.
