Introducing the Linked Data Research Centre

  1. 1. Introducing theLinked Data Research Centre<br />Dr. Michael Hausenblas<br /><br />
  2. 2. What is it about?<br />a new cluster?<br />a new project?<br />a new stream?<br />a new unit?<br />
  3. 3. What is it about?<br />No<br />
  4. 4. What is it about?<br />actually, it is about …<br />
  5. 5. What is it about?<br />YOU!<br />
  6. 6. What is it about?<br />You ?<br /><br />
  7. 7. Facts & Figures<br />The Linked Data Research Centre (LiDRC) is an effort to bundle activities around linked data<br />Operating horizontal to units, appointed to drive and lead the linked data research and development<br />Launched in June 2009<br />Currently we are<br />11 DERI researcher, and work together with <br />9 international peers<br />

  9. 9. Linked Data Principles*<br /> Use URIs to name things; not only documents, but also people, locations, concepts, etc.<br /> To enable agents (human users and machine agents alike) to look up those names, use HTTP URIs<br /> When someone looks up a URI we provide useful information; with &apos;useful&apos; in the strict sense we usually mean structured data in RDF.<br /> Include links to other URIs allowing agents (machines and humans) to discover more things<br />(*)<br />
  10. 10. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs for<br />documents<br /><br />
  11. 11. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs for<br />people<br /><br />
  12. 12. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs for<br />places<br />,-9.05178/500<br />
  13. 13. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs for<br />software<br /><br />
  14. 14. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs forabstract concepts<br />such asemotions<br /><br /><br />
  15. 15. URIs to name things<br />… or not so abstract …<br />
  16. 16. URIs to name things<br />HTTP URIs for<br />emotions(alias)<br /><br /><br />
  17. 17. Lookup yields useful information<br /> Some structured data<br />(hopefully)<br /><br />
  18. 18. Link to other entities<br /> typed links<br />==<br />relations between entities<br />and there are many relations one can think of …<br />
  19. 19. Relations between entities<br />person<br />to<br />person<br /><br />
  20. 20. Relations between entities<br />person<br />to<br />software<br /><br />
  21. 21. Relations between entities<br />software<br />to<br />data<br /><br />
  22. 22. Relations between entities<br />data<br />to<br />person<br /><br />
  23. 23. Principles applied …<br />Linked data principles, aka ‘RDF over HTTP’ are good, but they need to be applied<br />Linked data principles applied to<br />… open, freely available datasets (in various source formats such as CSV, XML, etc.), such as WikipediaLinking Open Data (LOD)<br />… enterprise data (CRM, XBRL, etc.)Enterprise linked data (eLD)<br />… (news) feeds, sensors, etc.Streamed linked data<br />… and what is about your domain?<br />
  24. 24. Linking Open Data<br />over 100 open data sets, incl. Wikipedia, Geonames, etc., providing over 4.7 billion RDF triples, interlinked by approximately 142 million RDF links<br />24 of XYZ<br />
  25. 25. So, how does it work?<br />The LiDRC operates within so calledResearch Themes<br />
  26. 26. LiDRC’s Research Themes<br />Discovery<br />Application Domains <br />Publishing <br />Streamed Linked Data<br />
  27. 27. LiDRC’s Research Themes<br />Publishing – creation, interlinking and deployment of linked data<br />Discovery – finding and using linked data<br />Application Domains – from specific content domains (software engineering, multimedia, etc.) to linked data driven applications)<br />Streamed Linked Data – researches data stream such as news feeds, microblogging, RFID/sensor data, etc.<br />
  28. 28. Services offered by LiDRC<br />Tutorials and consultancy regarding linked data publishing, consumption and usage<br />
