Enabling Knowledge Discovery Services on Grids
The Grid is mainly used today for supporting high-performance compute intensive applications. However, it is going to be effectively exploited for deploying data-driven and knowledge discovery applications. To support these classes of applications, high-level tools and services are vital. The Knowledge Grid is a high-level system for providing Grid-based knowledge discovery services. These services allow professionals and scientists to create and manage complex knowledge discovery applications composed as workflows that integrate data sets and mining tools provided as distributed services on a Grid. This paper presents and discusses how knowledge discovery applications can be designed and deployed on Grids. The contribution of novel technologies and models such as OGSA, P2P, and ontologies is also discussed.
