The Future of Libraries, Linked Data and Schema.Org Extensions - semanticweb.com

The Future of Libraries, Linked Data and Schema.Org Extensions - semanticweb.com | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

Yesterday The Semantic Link Podcast featured Karen Coyle, a consultant in library technology who’s consulted for esteemed institutions including the Library of Congress. Coyle discussed libraries’ long history with metadata, including with the MARC (machine-readable cataloging) format for nearly 50 years, and of sharing that metadata. That history helps explain why libraries, she said, are looking at semantic web technology – but also why changes to established processes are huge undertakings. “The move toward Linked Data will be the most significant change in library data in these two centuries,” she said, requiring the move from mainly textual data into using identifiers for things and data instead of strings.

 

Today, The Semantic Web Blog continues the discussion by sharing some perspectives on the topic from OCLC technology evangelist Richard Wallis. As noted in yesterday’s podcast, change has its challenges. “Getting the library community to get its head around Linked Data as a replacement for MARC … will be a bit of a challenge,” Wallis says. While more members of the library community are starting to “get” Linked Data, and what can be accomplished by extracting entities and linking between them, some still struggle with why change can’t just occur within the MARC format itself or its successor Resource Description and Access (RDA), that provides atomistic, machine-actionable data and machine-interpretable relationships. RDA, Wallis reminds us, took a decade from inception to publication and business model.

The term "Big Data" was coined by Haseeb Budhani, presently founder and CEO of BubblewrApp, in 2008 while at Infineta Systems. "Big Data" caught on quickly as a blanket term for any collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database

RDF 1.1 and the Future of Government Transparency - Semanticweb.com

RDF 1.1 and the Future of Government Transparency - Semanticweb.com | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

Following the newly minted “recommendation” status of RDF 1.1, Michael C. Daconta of GCN has asked, “What does this mean for open data and government transparency?” Daconta writes, “First, it is important to highlight the JSON-LD serialization format.  JSON is a very simple and popular data format, especially in modern Web applications.  Furthermore, JSON is a concise format (much more so than XML) that is well-suited to represent the RDF data model.  An example of this is Google adopting JSON-LD for marking up data in Gmail, Search and Google Now.  Second, like the rebranding of RDF to ‘linked data’ in order to capitalize on the popularity of social graphs, RDF is adapting its strong semantics to other communities by separating the model from the syntax.  In other words, if the mountain won’t come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain.”

Gus Creedon's curator insight, June 12, 11:46 AM

The Federal Government needs to develop a strategy for publishing its content on the web using RDF. This will  enable a more open and transparent Government; something the taxpayer deserves and federal analysts will use. But I wonder who in the Government has the authority to work RDF into a Government-wide policy, and then affect funding to enable agencies to comply. Enabling semantic web standards can only lead to smarter searching, which becomes a workforce multiplier.

The Fate of the Semantic Web (2010) | Pew Internet & American Life Project

 

Some 895 experts responded to the invitation of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center to predict the likely progress toward achieving the goals of the semantic web by the year 2020. Asked to think about the likelihood that Berners-Lee and his allies will realize their vision, often called Web 3.0, these technology experts and stakeholders were divided and often contentious.

Irina Radchenko's insight:

Technology experts and stakeholders who participated in a recent survey believe online information will continue to be organized and made accessible in smarter and more useful ways in coming years, but there is stark dispute about whether the improvements will match the visionary ideals of those who are working to build the semantic web.
