  2. 2. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data The Emerging Web of Data: Achievements and Challenges  Web - a global, distributed platform for data, information and knowledge integration  exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using URIs and RDF Achievements Challenges 1. Extension of the Web with a 1. Coherence: Relatively few, data commons (currently expensively maintained links amounting to 25 Bn. facts) 2. Quality: partly low-quality dataJuly 2007 April 2008 September 2008 2. Vibrant, global RTD and inconsistencies community 3. Performance: Still substantial penalties compared to relational 3. Industrial uptake begins 4. Data Consumption: large-scale (e.g. BBC, Thomson Reuters, processing, schema mapping Eli Lilly) and data fusion still in its infancy 4. Emerging governmental 5. Usability: Missing direct end- adoption in sight user tools and network effect 5. Establishing Linked Data as a deployment path for the These issues are closely related Semantic Web. and should ultimately lead to an eco-system of interlinked July 2009 knowledge!

  4. 4. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data LOD2 in a Nutshell (2) LOD2 EC-funded collabarotive project that aims to utilize the Web as an integration platform for data and information Linked Data Linked Data provides the necessary basic technologies and standards to realize the goal of LOD2. Linked Open Data publicly accessible data which is to be integrated into the web and linked among one another and with non-public contents such as enterprise intranets Project Highlights Open Government Linked Data Initiative Common European platform publicdata.eu Leading Web 3.0 technologies are combined in the project into the coherent LOD2 Stack (e.g. DBpedia, Virtuoso, Sindice, Silk)EU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 .

Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP3: Multilingual Support for Information ExtractionStandard information extraction techniques can be used to extract the information fromdocuments in different natural languages, but the use of available linguistic resources (e.g.electronic dictionaries) can simplify their application.Goals: To integrate an information extraction tool into the LOD2 Stack that can use the available linguistic resources, which will be able to represent the information extracted from natural language documents in the linked data format To integrate the document searching tool, which will be able to learn domain-specific vocabularies (words and phrases) in different languages and then, using these vocabularies and previously processed natural language documents, to provide a list of similar documents sorted according to the semantic similarity to the given oneEU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 .

  32. 32. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP9: Open Government Data Use CaseOverviewPublicData.eu is a prototype of a pan-European data catalogue and federation mechanism, developed by OKFNas part of the FP7-funded LOD2 project. Based on the CKAN open-source data portal, the site is developed as ause case and an early adopter of the LOD2 linked data stack technologies.EU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 . Page 32 http://lod2.eu
  33. 33. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP9: Key Stats Publicdata.eu provides robust and useful search, filtering and previewing tools. It currently houses 17027 data sets, harvested from 18 data catalogues, and it provides the option to browse data sets by top-level categories.EU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 . Page 33 http://lod2.eu
  34. 34. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP9: ResultsTechnical improvements to Publicdata.eu during the past year In March 2012 we upgraded PublicData.eu to CKAN version 1.6, adding the data preview functionality (powered by Recline), improvements to search, interface improvements to dataset pages, newly added resource (file) pages and group pages. We also re-ran all the harvesters to have the most up to date set of datasets. Some catalogues have been migrated to groups on thedatahub.org and therefore cant currently be harvested without also including non EU datasets. In the future we may resolve this by extending the harvester to allow us to specify which groups or tags should be harvested. This would allow us to import relevant datasets from thedatahub.org without importing non EU datasets. Many new CKAN instances have recently been launched by various countries, which we hope to include in our harvesting for the intermediate launch (August 2013)EU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 .

  35. 35. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP9: Next Steps (1) Further technical improvements to Publicdata.eu :  Improvements that have been already implemented (Personalization features)  activity streams and follow support (i.e. allowing users to subscribe to information based on the region of interest, language and other Social /sharing buttons)  Improvements scheduled for the next site releases (Personalization features)  ability to rate datasets (by users or via QA extension)  allow users to add/revise their own data sets  users to contribute tools and mash-ups and visualization/Data store  “related" extension allowing users to link to and from their data  add Disqus comments extensionsEU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 . Page 35 http://lod2.eu
  36. 36. Creating Knowledge out of Interlinked Data WP9: Next Steps (2) Ckan core technology improvements (Harvesting)  ability to only harvest changed data  ability to harvest part of a site (i.e. A particular group)  automate the harvesting process so that the data in publicdata.eu is always up to date.Run harvesters more often/automatically  show harvesting info publicly - Success/Failure alerts in the UI Additional features  adding more advanced multilingual capabilities to the portal  adding an RDF datastoreEU-FP7 LOD2 Project Overview . 31.08.2012 .
