Hello! I am a SPbSTU aspirant perusing a PhD in the 05.13.11 specialization.
Maybe you can help me choose a topic for my dissertation? I'm undecided.

Some broad areas of my interests include semantic web, information-retrieval and relativity, rating systems, user-adaptive systems, intention-driven systems, kinetic-typography UIs, methods for using the social graph & associations to improve usability, and a hundred more fields. They all seem exciting, but I do not have enough knowledge in any given field to find problems to research and solve and make a dissertation.

Perhaps you can help me see which areas are inline with the 05.13.11 specialization and are being actively researched. At least in semantic-web or the area of real-time web-streams. It's hard to understand which parts of it need research investments that would give a topic for dissertation or at least a paper.

By background is programming websites and different web technologies, but only for developing solutions for end-users. My master's thesis project is http://lan-crawler.sf.net which used Lucene for IR and scanned local files within a LAN.

I'll spend my time reading dissertations and trying to find the edge of science in different fields. :)

I can be reached via [email protected], gtalk, twitter/cdima.

Let's face it; Twitter these times does not only serve as a means of communication with friends and loved ones, but also for the general public. This could be attributed to its range of use that even the latest news in the community is now available at Twitter headlines.
