Let’s assume you are the owner of a CSV file with some valuable data. You derive some revenue from it by selling it to consumers that do traditional data integration. They take your file and import it into their own data storage solution (for instance, a relational database) and deploy applications on top of this […]

Emerging online applications based on the Web of Objects or Linked Open Data typically assume that connectivity to data repositories and entity resolution services are always available. This may not be a valid assumption in many cases. Indeed, there are about 4.5 billion people in the world who have no or limited Internet access. Many […]

New version of Hubble CDS prototype

Posted by data2semantics in collaboration | computer science | large scale | semantic web | vu university amsterdam - (Comments Off on New version of Hubble CDS prototype)

Source: Data2Semantics
Last week we’ve been working very hard to reshape the CDS prototype system for the ESWC demo this evening. This required quite a lot of work on the UI and underlying data (e.g. linking BioPortal annotations to LLD and AERS was not as straightforward as one would hope) New stuff Publications cited in our example […]

The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) is a UK based institute specialised in development research, teaching and communications. As part of their activities, they provide an API to query their knowledge services data set compromising more than 32k abstracts or summaries of development research documents related to 8k development organisations, almost 30 themes and 225 countries and territories.

A month ago, Victor de Boer and myself got a grant from IDS to investigate exposing their data as RDF and building some client applications making use of the enriched data. We aimed at using the API as it is and create 5-star Linked Data by linking the created resources to other resources on the Web. The outcome is the IDSWrapper which is now freely accessible, both as HTML and as RDF. Although this is still work in progress, this wrapper already shows some advantages provided by publishing the data as Linked Data.
