  • 24. Semantic Web: Web of Data The vision of a Semantic Web:  building a global Web of machine-readable data  Berners-Lee, Hendler & Lassila, 2001; Marshall & Shipman, 2003The first step is putting data on the Web in a form that machines cannaturally understand, or converting it to that form. This creates what I call aSemantic Web - a web of data that can be processed directly or indirectly bymachines. Therefore, while the Semantic Web, or Web of Data, is the goal orthe end result of this process, Linked Data provides the means to reach thatgoal. -- Tim Berners-Lee, et al., http://linkeddata.org/docs/ijswis-special-issue, Jan, 2009 Linked Data Foundation  can lower the barrier to reuse, integration and application of data from multiple, distributed and heterogeneous sources.  the more sophisticated proposals associated with the Semantic Web vision, such as intelligent agents, may become a reality. skhan@wku.ac.kr 24
  • 25. Linked Data: Web of Data Goal: Web-scale Data Integration  Alternative to classic data integration systems in order to cope with growing number of data sources.  Querying across data sources Global distributed database RDF  Extend the Web with a single global data space  Giant Global Graph (GGG) Demonstrate the possibility of Semantic Web  By using RDF to publish structured data RDF  By setting links between data single RDF universal information space.

  • 27. Linked Data PrinciplesSet of best practices for publishing structured data on the Web in accordance withthe general architecture of the Web. Use URIs as names for things.  Use URIs as names for things, not just for documents or homepages Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names. When someone looks up a URI, provide useful RDF information. Include RDF statements that link to other URIs so that they can discover related things. URI URI URI URI RDF Link URI RDF triple Information URI HTTP URI URI skhan@wku.ac.kr 27
  • 28. Linked Open Data Community effort to  publish existing open license datasets as Linked Data on the Web  interlink things between different data sources  develop clients that consume Linked Data from the Web  began early 2007 skhan@wku.ac.kr 28
  • 29. LOD Data sets on the Web 25 billion RDF triples, which are interlinked by around 395 million RDF links (Sep. 2010). http://richard.cyganiak.de/2007/10/lod/lod-datasets_2010-09-22_colored.svg skhan@wku.ac.kr 29
  • 30. Summary: Web of Linked Data A global, distributed database built on a simple set of standards  RDF, URI, HTTP Explicit semantics of content and links Resources are connected by semantic links.  creating a single global data graph that span data sources  enables the discovery of new data sources Provides for data co-existence  Anyone can publish data to the Web of Linked Data  Data publishers are not constrained in choice of vocabularies with which to represent data. Designed for computer first, humans later skhan@wku.ac.kr 30

  • 42. Linked Data: Overview Benefits of Linked Data Enables web-scale data distributed publication with web-based discovery mechanisms. Linked Data Web Resources are generic real-world data objects or entities:  People, Places, and other physical things  Abstract concepts (e.g., emotion, notion,…)  Subject matter (e.g., science, economics, arts,…) Linked Data is not just structured data published on the Web. Linked Data is based on well-established Web standards Linked Data adds value: less redundancy, greater discoverability, network effects. skhan@wku.ac.kr 42
  • 43. Linked Data Principles (TimBL, 2006) Use URIs as names for things  not just for documents  http://dbpedia.org/resource/ontology  you are not your homepage  http://mentalist.com/actor/patrick_jane Use HTTP URIs  globally unique names, distributed ownership  allows people to look up those names Provide useful information in RDF  when someone looks up a URI Include RDF links to other URIs  to enable discovery of related information skhan@wku.ac.kr 43

  • 56. 4. Create Vocabularies • Vocabulary Creation • Common Namespace • Definition skhan@wku.ac.kr 56
  • 57. Guideline for Vocabulary Creation Do not define new vocabularies from scratch, but complement existing vocabularies with additional terms (in your own namespace) to represent your data as required. Provide for both humans and machines. Use rdfs:comments for each term invented. Always provide a label for each term using the rdfs:label property. Make term URIs de-referenceable following the W3C Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF Vocabularies. Make use of other peoples terms. Using other peoples terms, or providing mappings to them, by means of rdfs:subClassOf or rdfs:subPropertyOf. State all important information explicitly. For example, state all ranges and domains explicitly. Do not create over-constrained, brittle models; leave some flexibility for growth. Do not use full-featured OWL or RDF to define your vocabulary. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, use RDF Schema to define vocabularies. skhan@wku.ac.kr 57
  • 58. Potential Ontologies / Vocabularies Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF), vocabulary for describing people. Dublin Core (DC) defines general metadata attributes. See also their new domains and ranges draft. Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (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. Music Ontology provides terms for describing artists, albums and tracks. Review Vocabulary, vocabulary for representing reviews. Creative Commons (CC), vocabulary for describing license terms Geo, vocabulary for describing geographical locations GoodRelations, vocabulary for describing products skhan@wku.ac.kr 58

  • 63. Resource Identification Separation of Identity and Representation Identity  Identity (URI) of an Object or Entity should be unambiguous and globally unique Representation  On the Web a URI should provide an unambiguous data access path Access  Reference to abstract (physically inaccessible)  Objects or Entities is only achievable via conduit documents that carry representations of entity descriptions (which at best are facets of an entire description) URI Requirements:  Keep out of other peoples namespaces  Use a namespace that you control  Abstract away from implementation details (Short is better…)  Stable and persistent  Hash or Slash  Use common URI patterns skhan@wku.ac.kr 63
  • 64. URI URI: Unique Resource Identifier home page?? (Web document) http://www.example.com/people/alice information object ??URI: identification of people, products, places, ideas and concepts such asontology classes, including URLs for Web documents hash URI Two Approaches slash URI skhan@wku.ac.kr 64
  • 65. Hash / Slash URI Hash URI  URIs can contain a fragment, a special part that is separated from the rest of the URI by a hash symbol (“#”).  http://www.example.com/products/BiBimBab#this  http://www.travel.com /nation/Korea/KyungJu#main  simply publish a description document containing RDF about the things at the base URI Slash URI  examples:  http://www.example.com/products/BiBimBab  http://www.travel.com /nation/Korea/KyungJu  must publish your description document at another, distinct URI. skhan@wku.ac.kr 65

  • 68. Slash vs. Hash Slash URI  HTTP redirection (30X response) is required in order for resource "Identity" to be separated from "representation". :  http://www.skyhigh.com/person/hero/GilDong/id (URI of an Organization Entity)  http://www.skyhigh.com/person/hero/GilDong/page (HTML representation of Entity description)  http://www.skyhigh.com/person/hero/GilDong/data (RDF representation that describes the Entity which could be: Turtle, N3. RDF/XML etc. based data serialization) Hash URI  HTTP redirection isnt required in order for resource "Identity" to be separated from "representation". :  http://demo.openlinksw.com/Northwind/Customer/ALFKI#this (URI of an Organization Entity)  http://demo.openlinksw.com/Northwind/Customer/ALFKI a document (HTML, Turtle, N3, RDF/XML, representation of Entity description). skhan@wku.ac.kr 68

  • 80. RDF Features Best Avoided Do not use the full expressivity of the RDF data model.  Use a subset of the RDF features No blank nodes.  It is impossible to set external RDF links to a blank node, Do not use RDF reification as the semantics of reification  unclear and cumbersome to query with the SPARQL query language.  Metadata can be attached to the information resource instead Be careful before using RDF collections or RDF containers  do not work well together with SPARQL skhan@wku.ac.kr 80

  • 82. Link ! Reuse !! Reuse. Do not invent the wheel again…  The URIs are de-referenceable.  For instance, using the DBpedia URI http://dbpedia.org/page/Doom to identify the computer game Doom gives you an extensive description of the game including abstracts in 10 different languages and various classifications.  The URIs are already linked to URIs from other data sources.  For instance, you can navigate from the DBpedia URI http://dbpedia.org/resource/Innsbruck to data about Innsbruck provided by Geonames and EuroStat.  Therefore, by using concept URIs form these datasets, you interlink your data with a rich and fast-growing network of other data sources. skhan@wku.ac.kr 82
  • 83. Types of Linking to other Data Sets Relationship Links  point at related things in other data sources, for instance, other people, places or genes. <http://www.skyhigh.com/people/GilDong> rdf:type foaf:Person ; foaf:name “Hong, Gil-Dong" ; foaf:based_near <http://dbpedia.org/resource/Seoul> ; foaf:topic_interest <http://dbpedia.org/resource/Justice> ; foaf:knows <http://dbpedia.org/resource/HalBingDang> . Identity Links  point at URI aliases used by other data sources to identify the same real-world object or abstract concept. <http:// www.skyhigh.com/people/GilDong > <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#sameAs> <http://www.korea.org/history/hero> Vocabulary Links  point to the definitions of related terms in other vocabularies <http://www.university.org/terms/professor> rdf:type rdfs:Class ; rdfs:subClassOf <http://dbpedia.org/ontology/Person> . rdfs:subClassOf <http://sw.opencyc.org/concept/Mx4rvbGdrcN5Y29ycA> ; owl:equivalentClass <http://rdf.dictionary.com/entry/facultyMember> skhan@wku.ac.kr 83
  • 84. Link to other Data Sets URI aliases  In an open environment like the Web it often happens that different information providers talk about the same non-information resource. As they do not know about each other, they introduce different URIs for identifying the same real-world object.  http://dbpedia.org/resource/Berlin  http://sws.geonames.org/2950159/  URI aliases provide an important social function to the Web of Data as they are de-referenced to different descriptions of the same non-information resource and thus allow different views and opinions to be expressed.  owl:sameAs Common Properties  rdfs:seeAlso, foaf:knows, foaf:based_near, foaf:topic_interest,… Two approaches for linking data:  RDF Links Manually  Auto-generating RDF Links skhan@wku.ac.kr 84
  • 85. RDF Links Manually Find the similar data sets as suitable linking targets manually search in these for the URI references you want to link to. If a data source doesnt provide a search interface, you can use Linked Data browsers like Tabulator or Disco to explore the dataset and find the right URIs. Useful sites:  Sindice and Falcons provide indexes to identify candidate URIs for linking.  CKAN site : a registry of open linked data and projects.  Uriqr - A URI Search Engine: http://dev.uriqr.com/  Freebase: http://www.freebase.com MOAT: Meaning Of A Tag Framework  For manually interlinking tags with Semantic Web URIs (such as URIs from DBpedia, Geonames … or any knowledge base) Remember that data sources might use HTTP-303 redirects to redirect clients from URIs identifying non-information resources to URIs identifying information resources that describe the non-information resources. skhan@wku.ac.kr 85
  • 86. Auto-generating RDF Links Various approaches  Pattern-based Algorithms  Similarity-based Approaches  Complex property-based Algorithms  Yves Equivalence Miner: interlinking Jamendo and Musicbrainz. Equivalence Mining and Matching Frameworks  Silk - A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data.  Silk can be run on a single machine or on a Hadoop cluster (for instance Amazon EC2).  LIMES - Link Discovery Framework for Metric Spaces.  time-efficient and lossless approaches for large-scale link discovery based on the characteristics of metric spaces.  DSNotify - Detecting and Fixing Broken Links in Linked Data Sets  TopBraid Composer  a wizard for linking ontology instances to corresponding DBpedia concepts.  SemMF  a flexible framework for calculating semantic similarity between objects that are represented as arbitrary RDF graphs. http://esw.w3.org/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData/EquivalenceMining skhan@wku.ac.kr 86

Publishing Descriptions of a Data set Help others discover and index your data Apply a license or waiver to your data set Metadata about the published linked data set  authorship of a data set, its currency (i.e., how recently the data set was updated), its licensing terms, the provenance and timeliness of a data set and the terms for licensing Important issues:  Provenance:  the ability to track the origin of data  key component in building trustworthy, reliable applications  Open Provenance Model84  Licenses vs. Waivers  Norms : a means for data publishers who waive their legal rights (through application of a waiver) to define expectations they have about how the data is used Two primary mechanisms  Semantic Sitemaps: http://sw.deri.org/2007/07/sitemapextension/  voiD : http://semanticweb.org/wiki/VoiD skhan@wku.ac.kr 88
