Please read my research page to find out about the types of topics I am interested in (Knowledge Graphs, Data Governance, Privacy, Data Quality, Risk Management, Socio-Technical Systems, metadata). In general I would strongly prefer to supervise projects related to the proposals below rather than student's own project ideas (but some of the topics are pretty open).

Automated analysis and processing of GDPR data transfer or ethics application forms could save organisations time, automate accountability trails and help identify trends, patterns or incidents.
The W3C standard for knowledge graphs is

Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) maintain our national digital spatial infrastructure which senses and tracks 50 million spatial entities (buildings, roads, mountains) and maintains a detailed digital model of Ireland. OSi publish it is open Linked Data on the data.geohive.ie site. There are a large number of related Irish datasets published by the Irish government on data.gov.ie and they could be combined with the OSi data for many applications.

As part of GDPR legisation it is necessary for organisations to carefully track where they are using or recording personal data but many organisations already have extensive dataset collections that need to be assessed. In this case it would be useful to have a tool that could be run over a dataset to determine the probability that it contains personal data. This project will explore the creation of such a tool, starting from a tool that is capable of detecting personal data in structured datasets such as W3C Linked Data.Keywords: GDPR, Linked Data, Intelligent Systems, Python
Modern NLP techniques enable rapid knowledge extraction from text, for example generating automated annotation with concepts or terminologies stored in a knowledge graph, but what is the best way to interact with realtime user input?Keywords: NLP, Knowledge Graphs, Ux, Intelligent Systems
