  • 3. Resources for the codelab: Eclipse Luna for J2EE developers - Java SE 1.8 - Apache Tomcat 8.0.5 - Axis2 1.6.2 - Apache Jena 2.11.1 - Dbpedia Sparql endpoint: - BigData & Wikidata - no lies

  • 5. The Semantic Web The Semantic Web is a project that intends to add computer-processable meaning (semantics) to the Word Wide Web. SPARQL A a protocol and a query language SQL-like for querying RDF graphs via pattern matching VIRTUOSO Both back-end database engine and the HTTP/SPARQL server. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 6. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 7. Is the Semantic Web mirror of Wikipedia. RDF Is a data model of graphs on subject, predicate, object triples. APACHE JENA A free and open source Java framework for building Semantic Web and Linked Data applications. ARQ - A SPARQL Processor for Jena for querying Remote SPARQL Services BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 8. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 9. extracts from Wikipedia editions in 119 languages, convert it into RDF and make this information available on the Web: ★ 24.9 million things (16.8 million from the English Dbpedia); ★ labels and abstracts for 12.6 million unique things; ★ 24.6 million links to images and 27.6 million links to external web pages; ★ 45.0 million external links into other RDF datasets, 67.0 million links to Wikipedia categories, and 41.2 million YAGO categories. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 10. The dataset consists of 2.46 billion RDF triples (470 million were extracted from the English edition of Wikipedia), 1.98 billion from other language editions, and 45 million are links to external datasets. DBpedia uses the Resource Description Framework (RDF) as a flexible data model for representing extracted information and for publishing it on the Web. We use the SPARQL query language to query this data. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 11. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 12. What is a Triple? A Triple is the minimal amount of information expressable in Semantic Web. It is composed of 3 elements: 1. A subject which is a URI (e.g., a "web address") that represents something. 2. A predicate which is another URI that represents a certain property of the subject. 3. An object which can be a URI or a literal (a string) that is related to the subject through the predicate. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 13. John has the email address (subject) (predicate) (object) Subjects, predicates, and objects are represented with URIs, which can be abbreviated as prefixed names. Objects can also be literals: strings, integers, booleans, etc. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 14. Why SPARQL? SPARQL is a quey language of the Semantic Web that lets us: 1. Extract values from structured and semi-strutured data 2. Explore data by querying unknown relatioships 3. Perform complex join query of various dataset in a unique query 4. Trasform data from a vocabulary in another BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 15. Structure of a SPARQL query: ● Prefix declarations, for abbreviating URIs ( PREFIX dbpowl: <> = dbpowl:Mountain) ● Dataset definition, stating what RDF graph(s) are being queried (DBPedia, Darwin Core Terms, Yago, FOAF - Friend of a Friend) ● A result clause, identifying what information to return from the query The query pattern, specifying what to query for in the underlying dataset (Select) ● Query modifiers, slicing, ordering, and otherwise rearranging query results - ORDER BY, GROUP BY BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 16. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 17. ##EXAMPLE - Give me all cities & towns in Abruzzo with more than 50,000 inhabitants PREFIX dbpclass: <> PREFIX dbpprop: <> SELECT ?resource ?value WHERE { ?resource a dbpclass:CitiesAndTownsInAbruzzo . ?resource dbpprop:populationTotal ?value . FILTER ( ?value > 50000 ) } ORDER BY ?resource ?value BigData & Wikidata - no lies

  • 21. Wikipedia articles consist mostly of free text, but also contain different types of structured information: infobox templates, categorisation information, images, geo-coordinates, and links to external Web pages. DBpedia transforms into RDF triples data that are entered in Wikipedia. So creating a page in Wikipedia creates RDF in DBpedia. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 22. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 23. Example: describes the movie. DBpedia creates a URI: (where wikipedia_page_name is the name of the regular Wikipedia html page) = Underscore characters replace spaces. DBpedia can be queried via a Web interface at ttp:// . The interface uses the Virtuoso SPARQL Query Editor to query the DBpedia endpoint. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 24. Public SPARQL Endpoint - use OpenLink Virtuoso Wikipedia page: DBPedia resource: InfoBox: dbpedia-owl:abstract; dbpedia-owl:starring; dbpedia-owl:budget; dbpprop:country; dbpprop:caption ecc. For instance, the figure below shows the source code and the visualisation of an infobox template containing structured information about Pulp Fiction. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 25. Big&Wikidata - no lies
  • 26. Big&Wikidata - no lies PREFIX prop: <> PREFIX res:<> PREFIX owl:<> SELECT DISTINCT ?name ?abstract ?caption ?image ?budget ?director ?cast ?country ?category WHERE { res:Pulp_Fiction prop:name ?name ; owl:abstract ?abstract ; prop:caption ?caption; owl:thumbnail ?image; owl:budget ?budget ; owl:director ?director ; owl:starring ?cast ; prop:country ?country ; dcterms:subject ?category . FILTER langMatches( lang(?abstract), 'en'). }

  • 28. Linked Data is a method of publishing RDF data on the Web and of interlinking data between different data sources. Query builder: ➢ ➢ ➢ ➢ ➢ Prefix variables start with "?" BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 29. The current RDF vocabularies are available at the following locations: ➔ W3: vCard Ontology - for describing People and Organizations Geo Ontology - for spatially-located things SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization System BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 30. ➔ GEO NAMES: geospatial semantic information (postal code) ➔ DUBLIN CORE: defines general metadata attributes used in a particular application ➔ FOAF: Friend of a Friend, vocabulary for describing people ➔ UNIPROT:, for science articles BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 31. ➔ MUSIC ONTOLOGY:, provides terms for describing artists, albums and tracks. ➔ REVIEW VOCABULARY: , vocabulary for representing reviews. ➔ CREATIVE COMMONS (CC): , vocabulary for describing license terms. ➔ OPEN UNIVERSITY: BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 32. ➔ Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC): www.sioc-, vocabulary for representing online communities ➔ Description of a Project (DOAP):, vocabulary for describing projects ➔ Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS):, vocabulary for representing taxonomies and loosely structured knowledge BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 33. BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 34. SPARQL queries have two parts (FROM is not indispensable): 1. The query (WHERE) part, which produces a list of variable bindings (although some variables may be unbound). 2. The part which puts together the results. SELECT, ASK, CONSTRUCT, or DESCRIBE. Other keywords: UNION, OPTIONAL (optional display if data exists), FILTER (conditions), ORDER BY, GROUP BY BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 35. SELECT - is effectively what the query returns (a ResultSet) ASK - just looks to see if there are any results COSTRUCT - uses a template to make RDF from the results. For each result row it binds the variables and adds the statements to the result model. If a template triple contains an unbound variable it is skipped. Return a new RDF-Graph DESCRIBE - unusual, since it takes each result node, finds triples associated with it, and adds them to a result model. Return a new RDF-Graph BigData & Wikidata - no lies
  • 36. What linked data il good for? Don’t search a single thing, but explore a whole set of related things together! 1) Revolutionize Wikipedia Search 2) Include DBpedia data in our own web page 3) Mobile and Geographic Applications 4) Document Classification, Annotation and Social Bookmarking 5) Multi-Domain Ontology 6) Nucleus for the Web of Data BigData & Wikidata - no lies
