  • 8. Web 3.0 / Semantic Web Linked Data
  • 9. Technical bit ahead! WARNING
  • 10. Linked Data
    • URIs – a generic means to identify entities or concepts in the world
    • HTTP – a simple yet universal mechanism for retrieving resources, or descriptions of resources
    • RDF – a generic graph-based data model with which to structure and link data that describes things in the world
    • SPARQL – RDF query language

  • 11. RDF Resource Description Framework Triples Subject --- Predicate ---> Object ALPSP --- Held at ---> BIR ALPSP --- web site ---> alpsp.org Triple Store SPARQL Query Language
  • 12. Linked Data
    • Use URIs as names for things
    • Use HTTP URIs so people can look up those names
    • When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using standards (RDF, SPARQL)
    • Include links to other URIs. So they can discover more things.
