Description

In this thesis you will adopt state-of-the-art methods and semantic technologies to assess the quality of information services in the Flemish Research Information Service Portal hosted by the Flemish Ministry of Economy, Science, and Innovation. This will also be your case study partner.

Evaluating information quality requires looking at both service components and composition patterns. In other words, you will asses the quality of the information a service provides and how this quality propagates from basic service components to whole business processes that constitute ecosystems of multiple service components.

The quality of information can be determined by comparing the information as delivered by the running service and what the consumer actually expects. This may change over time, so it is important to have this continuous assessment. You can consider different dimensions of quality: accuracy, completeness, timeliness, and availability of information. Once the quality is determined a service design can be updated accordingly to fulfill the new expectancies of the user.
