  • 14. shared innovationIssues, PDF through Microdata• Structure, parseability – How do we validate what were extracting? – Is there an underlying data model?• How do we know what the data means?• How do you relate parts of the data together?• How do consumers discover related data?
  • 15. shared innovationData on the Web != A Web of Data

  • 23. shared innovationWhy I  RDF• Clear underlying data model• Linkability baked into the data model• Ways to express what the data means• Many different ways to write it (for different use cases)• Very easily parsed (in some cases)
  • 24. shared innovationRDF Serialisation Formats• RDFa• RDF/XML• N-Triples• Turtle• RDF/JSON
  • 25. shared innovationIdentifying Things in the Graph• Use URIs• But not any old URIs• HTTP URIs – (almost completely) distributed ownership – anyone (with a credit card) can create/own them – can identify anything – lookup mechanism is baked in
