Transcript

  • 1. ‘GLAMorous’ LOD and ResearchSpace Introduction Dr. Barry Norton, Development Manager, ResearchSpace* The British Museum * supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam May 2014
  • 2. Agenda • Ten years… where’s the ‘Semantic Web’? ! • OK, but… isn’t this just about the Web? ! • If we give away our precious data, won’t people make untrue claims?
  • 3. Semantic Web? • 13 years since this article • 13 years ago, a young PhD student is glamorised by meeting TimBL • 8 years ago, teaching alongside Jim… to European PhD students • 2 years ago teaching in Berkeley every Summer, switch to training BBC, Wiley, British Museum…
  • 4. Wait… what?
  • 5. … what?
  • 6. … what? “40% decline in traffic when the structured data was broken”
 BBC
  • 7. What changed? • Stopped trying to build Semantic Web as precursor to people wanting to use it • Starting putting data out there so people could incrementally build clever things ! !
  • 8. Two datasets http://collection.britishmuseum.org http://linkedbrainz.org
  • 9. Back to the Web but…
  • 10. Back to the Web
  • 11. More on the Web ! ! ! ! ! • This is (was?) the wrong picture
  • 12. Two large graphs • Goo Google Knowledge Graph disambiguates search entities and provides data Wikidata disambiguates Wikipedia entities and provides data
  • 13. Is this just about the Web? • Can now include events and people as Linked Data in email • Import into (different) calendar • Can announce music- related events in Linked Data and calendar • Looking for richer model for music for schema.org This is now about systems integration
  • 14. Richer models ! ! ! ! ! ! ! rich enough model to talk about Yale’s Hadleigh Castle and relationship to ours
  • 15. Untrue claims? • For years a (naive) objection to Linked Data has been: • “If I publish my data and give my things identifiers (URIs), won’t people make untrue claims?” ! ! <http://collection.britishmuseum.org/id/object/YCA62958> crm:P52_has_current_owner <http://semanticweb.org/id/Barry_Norton>
  • 16. ResearchSpace • a reusable set of Linked Data-based components, making up • a platform that allows researchers to make claims (additions and changes to GLAM data) - • that preserves and aggregates canonical data across Museums (LAMs), • attributes claims, • records arguments based on • provenanced data annotation, • image annotation • forum-based discussion with explicit annotation • will allow inference over claims
  • 17. RS Search
  • 18. RS Data Annotation
  • 19. RS Image Annotation
  • 20. RS ‘Data Basket’
  • 21. RS Dashboard
  • 22. RS (Conjunctive) Search
  • 23. Fundamental Relationships
