Data and Knowledge Engineering
|Mohameth François Sy is the Section Manager for Data and Knowledge Engineering in the Simulation Neuroscience Division.
A knowledge graph engineer and software developer, he leads a team building systems, applications and processes to support large-scale data, knowledge management and governance throughout their life cycle. His team’s focus is to build data and knowledge products and use graph analytics and state of the art methods for machine learning on graphs to support various downstreaming tasks at BBP.
Some of those tasks include:
Mohameth François Sy contributed to various projects at Blue Brain including Blue Brain Nexus and BlueGraph.
Before joining Blue Brain, Mohameth was a postdoctoral researcher at the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (LIG) of the Université Grenoble Alpes, France where he led the development of a knowledge graph to support Adaptive Learning use cases. Specifically he developed generic semantic graph based representations for entities involved in teaching and learning maths and French language competencies in French elementary schools reusing and implementing a theoretical framework named Anthropological Theory of the Didactic.
Mohameth obtained his PhD from the LGI2P Lab, Ecole des Mines d’Ales, University of Montpellier, France and a Masters degree in Computer Science from Gaston Berger University, Saint-Louis, Senegal.
In his free time, he enjoys hiking and reading.
