Trina Myers' research interests focus predominately on semantic technologies, sensor technologies, knowledge management, collective intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT). Semantic technologies (linked data) are a subset of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that enables the integration of knowledge, information and disparate data.  Her dissertation articulated an eco-informatics use-case that applied semantic technologies in the marine biology domain to enable observational hypothesis-driven research through semantic inference over disparate marine and ecological datasets.

Trina's current research projects include: combining text mining with semantic context for intelligence data extraction from the information found on the Web (current applications are in the mining and tourism sectors); semantic enablement of IoT and collective Intelligence for more efficient water conservation resource management; and data and AI driven virtual reality environments.
