Biography

Prof. John G. Breslin is a Personal Professor (Personal Chair) in Electronic Engineering at the College of Science and Engineering at the National University of Ireland Galway, where he is Director of the TechInnovate / AgInnovate programmes. John has taught electronic engineering, computer science, innovation and entrepreneurship topics during the past two decades. Associated with three SFI Research Centres, he is a Co-Principal Investigator at Confirm (Smart Manufacturing) and Insight (Data Analytics), and a Funded Investigator at VistaMilk (AgTech). He has written 200+ peer-reviewed academic publications (h-index of 41, 7100 citations, best paper awards from IoT, DL4KGS, SEMANTiCS, ICEGOV, ESWC, PELS), and co-authored the books "Old Ireland in Colour", "The Social Semantic Web" and "Social Semantic Web Mining". He co-created the SIOC framework (Wikipedia article), implemented in hundreds of applications (by Yahoo, Boeing, Vodafone, etc.) on at least 65,000 websites with 35 million data instances.

He has featured in over 200 mainstream media items including articles from Forbes, New Scientist, Washington Post, and France 24, and has given over 50 talks and been on 20 panels at venues including Stanford, Tsinghua University, US Library of Congress, and University of Chile.

According to Google Scholar Citations, my h-index is 41 and I have over 7,400 citations. My ORCID is 0000-0001-5790-050X.
My top cited publications (with over 250 citations) are: “Crowdsourcing, Citizen Sensing and Sensor Web Technologies for Public and Environmental Health Surveillance and Crisis Management” (cited by 480); “Optimizing the AC Resistance of Multilayer Transformer Windings with Arbitrary Current Waveforms” (cited by 387); “Towards Semantically Interlinked Online Communities” (cited by 340); “The Future of Social Networks on the Internet: The Need for Semantics” (cited by 326); “The Social Semantic Web” (cited by 325); “Optimized Transformer Design: Inclusive of High Frequency Effects” (cited by 289), and “Online Social and Business Networking Communities” (cited by 270).I have collaborated with 180 other authors (see graph on right), including academic, government and industrial co-authors in organisations such as Cisco, Harvard Medical School, IBM, the US Government’s Department of Health and Human Services.My publications have been cited in patents granted to Cisco, Google, IBM, Offerpop and SAP, and patent applications by HP and Siemens, amongst others.“The Social Semantic Web” is a recommended course book in modules at Anna University Chennai, Boğaziçi University, Institute of Technology Tallaght, National Institute of Technology Patna, Technical University of Munich, University of Bamberg, University of Vigo, Utrecht Graduate School of Humanities. It has been downloaded over 10,000 times. Two independent reviews are given below:
“The book focuses mainly on the social Web and possibilities of its integration with the semantic Web. ... For Web developers, researchers, and graduate students, this book would be an ideal source for becoming acquainted with the evolving field of social applications on the Web. It may well fit into a seminar in information systems or related graduate study programs” (Mária Bieliková, ACM Computing Reviews, September 2010)
“This book provides an easy-to-understand insight into Semantic Web and Social Web technologies and highlights research challenges when applying these technologies. ... each chapter provides a literature survey which provides an introduction state-of-the-art research from the domain. ... can be of interest for those, who consider using any of these Social Web applications in their research as well as those just want to get a solid foundation on the topic. ... IT professionals, researchers, academics and graduate students can all benefit from reading this book.” (Frank Hopfgartner, Informer, January 2012)

External Industry Collaborations
“Eurapp” with Gigaom Research First EC-funded study to size the EU app economy in terms of developer / support jobs and app sales / contract work revenues Study was carried out with the research arm of major online technology publisher Gigaom, and was part of the EC’s Startup Europe initiative Crowdsourcing was used to come up with solutions to the main bottlenecks encountered in the EU app economy Final report was launched by European Commission VP Neelie Kroes in February 2014 “SIOC” with Opera, OpenLink Software, Asemantics, etc. Social data framework is one of the most widely used Semantic Web vocabularies on the Web W3C Member Submission was made in collaboration with the above companies and a collection of academic partners SIOC has been deployed on over 65,000 websites with 35 million data instances, including energy.gov, london.gov.uk, www.iq.harvard.edu, software.intel.com, and others that use the Drupal 7 CMS SIOC is used in more than 100 software systems including Yahoo! SearchMonkey, Boeing inSite, Vodafone ZYB, OpenLink Virtuoso and Talis Engage The words ‘SIOC’ and ‘semantic’ occur together in over 3,060 publications “S2E” with Cisco Semantic mapping was created for core XMPP stanzas, physical presences (e.g. sensor devices, geolocation), social network profiles and desktop activities in RDF using existing standard vocabularies including SIOC, FOAF, SSN (and SPITFIRE), PIMO Served as inspiration for the social semantic framework used in Cisco Quad, developed by Cisco R&D in Galway “Social Semantic Spreading Activation” with IBM Small collaboration with IBM’s LanguageWare group that led to published work in the book “Why Context Matters” Galaxy tool from IBM used spreading activation on social semantic data to cluster people and topics
External Government Collaborations
“HADA+PPO/PPM” with US Government Health and Human Services Leveraged NUI Galway’s privacy preference management for linked data architectures, specifically for the area of health and hospital-related linked data Deployed on a system that published Linked Government Data and required an access control framework to filter who could access specific data Worked with the late George Thomas and his team in Washington DC on this project This work resulted in a data.gov article1 and subsequent press release “researchers.ie” with the Irish Research Council Index of Irish-based researcher profiles, initially of students funded by IRCSET (later the Irish Research Council) Demonstrated to Professor Paddy Cunningham, Ireland’s Chief Scientific Adviser to the Taoiseach, and other stakeholders at the end of the project “Galway Traffic Forum” with Galway City Council, etc. Initiated efforts to create a social platform for this group to address transportation bottlenecks in Galway City Part of the Galway Transport Forum and Better Transport for Galway Initiative Worked with key stakeholders from the Galway City Council, Galway Chamber of Commerce, NUI Galway Civil Engineering, and Engineers Ireland
External Academic Collaborations
“SWAN/SIOC” with Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical School Project to align the SWAN (Semantic Web Applications in Neuromedicine) and SIOC (Semantically Interlinked Online Communities) ontologies Aimed to provide a complete model to represent scientific discourse in online communities at different levels of granularity (discourse elements and content items) “KEYSTONE” with Universitá degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia and others Co-authored this COST Action proposal on semantic keyword search on structured data, which grew to include 28 countries Coordinated dissemination of this project’s results, working with Chair Francesco Guerra and the rest of the Executive Scientific Board “Social Media Archive of Ireland” with the Digital Repository of Ireland at the Royal Irish Academy Project exploring the feasibility of creating an archive of social media-related activity that surrounds important national debates and events Aims to facilitate the selection and preservation of social media from an Irish context, as well as looking at the legal and ethical issues surrounding this preservation Should be useful to those looking at how current or historical events in a particular region are reflected in the combination of social and mainstream media “Semantic Tagging” with Seoul National University Created a semantic model for tag clouds and a tag sharing / exchange service based on this model
