GLAMorous LOD and ResearchSpace introduction

  1. 1. ‘GLAMorous’ LOD and ResearchSpace Introduction Dr. Barry Norton, Development Manager, ResearchSpace* The British Museum * supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam May 2014
  2. 2. Agenda • Ten years… where’s the ‘Semantic Web’? ! • OK, but… isn’t this just about the Web? ! • If we give away our precious data, won’t people make untrue claims?
  3. 3. Semantic Web? • 13 years since this article • 13 years ago, a young PhD student is glamorised by meeting TimBL • 8 years ago, teaching alongside Jim… to European PhD students • 2 years ago teaching in Berkeley every Summer, switch to training BBC, Wiley, British Museum…
  4. 4. Wait… what?
  5. 5. … what?
  6. 6. … what? “40% decline in traffic when the structured data was broken”
 BBC
  7. 7. What changed? • Stopped trying to build Semantic Web as precursor to people wanting to use it • Starting putting data out there so people could incrementally build clever things ! !
  8. 8. Two datasets http://collection.britishmuseum.org http://linkedbrainz.org
  9. 9. Back to the Web but…
  10. 10. Back to the Web
  11. 11. More on the Web ! ! ! ! ! • This is (was?) the wrong picture
  12. 12. Two large graphs • Goo Google Knowledge Graph disambiguates search entities and provides data Wikidata disambiguates Wikipedia entities and provides data
  13. 13. Is this just about the Web? • Can now include events and people as Linked Data in email • Import into (different) calendar • Can announce music- related events in Linked Data and calendar • Looking for richer model for music for schema.org This is now about systems integration
  14. 14. Richer models ! ! ! ! ! ! ! rich enough model to talk about Yale’s Hadleigh Castle and relationship to ours
  15. 15. Untrue claims? • For years a (naive) objection to Linked Data has been: • “If I publish my data and give my things identifiers (URIs), won’t people make untrue claims?” ! ! <http://collection.britishmuseum.org/id/object/YCA62958> crm:P52_has_current_owner <http://semanticweb.org/id/Barry_Norton>
  16. 16. ResearchSpace • a reusable set of Linked Data-based components, making up • a platform that allows researchers to make claims (additions and changes to GLAM data) - • that preserves and aggregates canonical data across Museums (LAMs), • attributes claims, • records arguments based on • provenanced data annotation, • image annotation • forum-based discussion with explicit annotation • will allow inference over claims
  17. 17. RS Search
  18. 18. RS Data Annotation
  19. 19. RS Image Annotation
  20. 20. RS ‘Data Basket’
  21. 21. RS Dashboard
  22. 22. RS (Conjunctive) Search
  23. 23. Fundamental Relationships
