reex2014 – a Rule Engine EXercise for 2014

I’m a Computer Science Engineer and I do believe there is a whole new range of unexplored applications for Expert Systems (AI) in Big Data scenarios, also within the Corporate business. You can read more about me on my LinkedIn profile.

I’ve found interest in Rule Engine applications while studying at University, and since, this has grown as a kind of NERD interest also on a personal perspective.

This is the reason every year I attempt an hobby-project where I can find an interesting application.

The theme I’ve chosen for this year 2014, is to solve a very practical problem: monitor data sources and social media for potential public transport issues, which I use for commuting. From a technological perspective, I’ve also wanted to seize a chance to experiment integrating several technologies.

In summary

GOALs

  • Monitor data sources and social media for potential public transport issues
  • Use Expert Systems (AI) – Rule Engine (Drools)
  • Experiment for integration of other technologies with Java EE: like PaaS (OpenShift), Camel, Android

NON-GOALs

  • This is not an exercise of Sentiment analysis nor of Natural language processing
  • This is not an exercise to imitate other more complex systems for public transport information communications
