Longer description

Interesting: Geo-spatial data management where text and geo-spatial data is indexed together. Oracle is trying to increase UDF capabilities via dynamic programming languages such as JavaScript to overcome variety (e.g., in LOD). Keynote by EPFL scientist who for instance 1) spoke about problems with finding out how the brain works. Neuron simulation and analysis. Navigation, crawling, seeding; very much similar to linked data setting; 2) spoke about NoDB where data gets scanned on site without copying the data to another place ("positional maps").
