P ROTÉGÉ protégé is one of the (few) application for modeling ontologies. It is Java-based, extensible, and provides a plug-and-play environment. It is released for all the desktop platforms and offers a web client. protégé is actively maintained by the Stanford Center for Biomedial Informatics Research. Website:
A NZO FOR E XCEL Anzo is an Excel plugin to associate an ontology to some Excel data.one of the (few) application for modeling ontologies. It is a commercial product. Website:

J ELLY -O NT Jelly-Ont is a touch-based mobile ontology browser, realized as an Android app. It is under active development by the e-Lite research group at Politecnico di Torino. An apk for Android 4.x is available for download (tested on a 10’’ tablet). Website: Demo:

O THER PROJECTS
T HE L INKING O PEN D ATA CLOUD DIAGRAM The Open Data Movement aims at making data freely available to everyone. There are already various interesting open data sets available on the Web (such as Wikipedia, Geonames or MusicBrainz). The goal of the W3C Linked Open Data community project is to extend the Web with data commons by publishing various open data sets as RDF and by setting RDF links between them. Upon this dataset, a LOD cloud diagram has been developed (http://lod-cloud.net).http://lod-cloud.net
T HE L INKING O PEN D ATA CLOUD DIAGRAM Linking Open Data cloud diagram, by Richard Cyganiak and Anja Jentzsch.
L OCCIONI L EAF I SLAND Loccioni Group is an Italian company, located near Ancona, Marche. Its main area of interest is quality control, industrial automation and management of energy processes. The company has a strong R&D area. Recently, they are experimenting the idea of a Leaf Community (http://energy.loccioni.com/sustainable- community/), an area where people live in zero- emissions homes, can use electrical and hydrogen-powered cars, children go to solar- powered schools, etc.http://energy.loccioni.com/sustainable- community/
L OCCIONI L EAF I SLAND The Leaf Island is a prototype for an energy management software system for the Leaf Community. Such a prototype is powered by the Leaf Ontology, which comprises both Smart Grid reference models and Building Automation concepts. The goal is to assess the energetic independence of the Loccioni microgrid and eventually acting on the appropriate devices to enforce it, thus minimizing energy exchanges with the bulk energy supply.
D OG O NT DogOnt is an ontology for Intelligent Domotic Environment. It is able to face interoperation issues allowing to describe where a device is located, the set of its capabilities, the technology-specific features needed to interface it, etc. It is a research product of the e-Lite research group at Politecnico di Torino.

R ESEARCH AREAS
S CALABLE REASONING reasoning has always been an hot topic in the Semantic Web community there is increasing demand for reasoners that can scale into billions of triples and handle messy data SPARQL PERFORMANCE high performance SPARQL engine
R ESEARCH AREAS L INKED D ATA “ SCIENCE ” how interact with Linked Data? how consume it? how useful is it? What kind of quality is expected? S EMANTIC S ENSOR S TREAMS how can Semantic Web technologies help to make sense of data streams produced by the various Internet-connected devices? can such streams be reasoned and queried?
R ESEARCH AREAS V ISUALIZATION /UI how to effectively interact with ontologies, RDF documents, …? S EMANTIC W EB TECHNOLOGIES FOR MOBILE PLATFORMS
