   Abstract

The Decentralized Information Group (DIG) at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab is investigating tools, technologies and protocols for enabling the development of large scale distributed information systems such as the Web. We are working on technologies to model, capture, visualize and integrate information from diverse sources, and on mechanisms to ensure that applicable security, privacy and usage policies are compiled with during the sharing and reuse of this information. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the research we’re doing at DIG and describe some of our projects including a Semantic Web browser, a policy reasoner that uses a truth maintenance system to track provenance and dependencies, privacy-awareness in social networks, enabling license appropriate content reuse, and propagator networks for distributed reasoning.
