Project: Cloud Based Triple-Store
Team Members: Albert Haque, Lynette Perkins
Advisor: Daniel Miranker

Abstract (revised October 18, 2012)
Using SPARQL, a query language for linked data, we aim to store triples in a relational model. We plan to store this data in a distributed manner using the Hadoop Distributed File System, execute linked data queries using efficient join algorithms and MapReduce.
Semester Goals (written October 1, 2012)
Experience collaborative research with graduate students and faculty
Explore up-and-coming data management systems in the research and prototype stage
Apply knowledge learned from the undergraduate curriculum to a live research project
