I have been working on the application of Semantic Web technologies to different commercial sectors since 2001, where I was involved in one of the first projects applying that technology in
Europe (Daimler-Chrysler in Madrid, Spain). Since then, I’ve been working in the scientific side
(See my publications at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jose-Manuel_Lopez-Cobo/), the development side (defining and developing products and commercial projects with Semantic
Technologies, using the following technologies: Java, J2EE, RDF, OWL, WSMO, OWL-S, UPML, f-Logic) and the management of R&D and commercial projects.
I have been involved in J2EE application for several years (more than 8), using technologies and platforms like Spring MVC, Hibernate, JSF, Struts and others. I provide a strong background using version control and continuous integration. With respect to databases, I am proficient with relational databases, like Oracle, Mysql, SQL Server or Postgress and NoSql databases as MongoDB.
More recently, I have been involved in playence (http://www.playence.com), as Chief Technical
Officer, designing and overseeing the creation of playence Enterprise and playence Express, two enterprise search solutions that take full advantage of the application of Semantic Technologies. In particular, I helped to build a Semantic Search Engine based on Solr, Lucene and a strong NLP platform, using ontologies and Linked Data to annotate and link pieces of information and connecting them with third party information sources.
