Smart University: An Architecture Proposal for Information Management Using Open Data for Research Projects

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 1137)

Abstract

The ubiquity of information is traditionally framed with Smart Cities in which, information is based on the integration of information, efficiency, sustainability and participatory governance. Ubiquity is present in all areas and domains, that is; why the “Smart University architecture” is proposed. The main goal of this work is to present the proposal for the information integration related to research projects of the “Universidad Nacional de Loja” (Ecuador). This proposal refers to the implementation of a three-layer architecture: (i) raw data collected manually or automatically from research projects; (ii) data structuration and data enrichment using external sources following the Open Data philosophy and (iii) exploitation and visualization of the information. The use of web services allows this architecture to automatically manage and share all the necessary information that serves as a basis to have the main characteristics of a smart university: adaptation, sensing, inferring, self-learning, anticipation and self-organization; and in addition, generate new business and research ideas.
