The Next Web of Linked Data -- University of St Thomas SEIS 708


Published on

With hundreds of millions of active web sites on the web and millions of
new web pages added every day, the knowledge contained on the internet far
surpasses even the largest cache of big data. Today, many web developers
still publish web pages and services solely for human consumption.
However, there is a growing movement to put machine friendly data on the
web in various forms to create a web of Linked Data rather than a web
comprised of simple documents.

This talk will examine the history, technology and examples around Linked
Data, onotologies, and the movement that will enable a smarter
web -- not just for search, but also next-gen data tools and applications
that will connect entities and facts from across the internet, all enabled
by developers publishing data directly to the web.
