Diesel: Distributed search in large enterprise data

DIESEL, a project run by metaphacts in collaboration with Zazuko and AKSW, aims at leveraging the advantages of Linked Data technologies to design and deliver a scalable semantic search engine for large enterprises.

The system will help enterprises connect, understand and find the information they need within a short time, by integrating and querying disparate data sources as a service. Using rich interfaces, the system will capture end-user information needs and allow users to extend their results with similar concepts. The results of these global searches will be displayed as comprehensive, targeted answers.

The aim of the research project is to reduce the time needed for global searches in the enterprise and enhance efficiency, reduce costs and improve the decision making process by reducing information noise and overload.
