Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data

  1. 1. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data (www.opencalais.com) Emilian-M ădălin Irimiea, Software Engineering Sys tems Master student, 2 nd year “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University, Faculty of Computer Science, Ia şi, România
  2. 2. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>1. Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>The term Linked Data is used to describe a method of exposing, sharing, and connecting data via dereferenceable URIs on the Web. </li></ul><ul><li>Linked Data has four principles: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Use URIs identify things. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Use HTTP URIs so that these things can be referred to and looked up (dereferenced) by people and user agents. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Provide useful information (metadata) about the respective thing when its URI is dereferenced. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Include links to other, related URIs, in the exposed data to improve discovery of other related information on the Web. [1] </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>2. OpenCalais [2] </li></ul><ul><li>OpenCalais is a Web service that allows people to automatically annotate their content with rich semantic metadata, including </li></ul><ul><li>entities such as people, companies and events and facts such as acquisitions and management changes. </li></ul><ul><li>The following are aspects of the OpenCalais Web service: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Preprocessed content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Usage quotas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- API invocation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Forming API calls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Semantic metadata </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Interpreting the API response </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- RDFS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Error messages </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>3. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data </li></ul><ul><li>The OpenCalais API can be used to process either complete or incomplete texts for which its response (output) will be in RDF </li></ul><ul><li>format that can be interpreted by appli-cations such as CalaisViewer ( http://viewer.opencalais.com ) or demo applications such as </li></ul><ul><li>http://opencalais.com/applications/rest-api-call-calais-r3 . </li></ul><ul><li>3.1 CalaisViewer </li></ul><ul><li>This Web application processes input text (Fig. 1) and outputs a page containing linked data information (Fig. 2). </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 1. The input text is “Microsoft has released its newest operating system, Windows 7.”. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 2. The left panel contains information regarding linked data entitites, events and facts. The right side displays the processed text and the most relevant </li></ul><ul><li>portions of text are highlighted. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 3. Here it can be seen that the string “Microsoft” has been identified as a company name and associated with linked data related to Microsoft Corporation. </li></ul><ul><li>Relevance: 67%. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 4. The text “operating system” has been linked to the “technology” entity, with a relevance of 67% as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 5. OpenCalais has determined that “Windows 7” is an operating system. Relevance: 67%. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 6. Left panel: “Microsoft Corporation”, company entity. </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 7. The link for the “Microsoft Corporation” entity leads to the company’s linked data Web page (Fig. 8). </li></ul>
  9. 9. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 8. Microsoft Corporation’s linked data page. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 9. Left panel: “Windows 7”, operating system entity. </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 10. The link for the “Windows 7” entity leads to the operating system’s linked data Web page (Fig. 11). </li></ul>
  11. 11. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 11. Windows 7’s linked data page. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 12. Left panel: “operating system”, technology entity. </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 13. The link for the “operating system” entity leads to the technology’s linked data Web page (Fig. 14). </li></ul>
  13. 13. Using OpenCalais in the context of linked data <ul><li>Fig. 14. Operating system’s linked data page. </li></ul><ul><li>Fig. 15. The link for the “technology” entity leads to the linked data page regarding events, facts and entities (Fig. 16 and 17). </li></ul>
