Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence?

Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence? | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

Representing the Digital Enterprise Research Institute, Liam Ó Móráin , recently discussed the work of the DERI on the Semantic Web and the move from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.

Liam explains how the evolution of Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 (also known as Semantic Web) is taking the web experience to the user in a new and more powerful way. Web 3.0 will quickly and easily combine information from very diverse sources and serve the information to the user, based on intelligent browsing.

 CDISC's recently announced that it plans to use SOA's Semantic Manager, an industry-leading repository and governance platform  for  data and metadata management to power its Shared Health And Clinical Research Electronic (SHARE) Library project.

CDISC SHARE will provide a global electronic repository for developing, integrating and accessing CDISC metadata standards for clinical research in electronic format.that can support the requirements through configuration, rather than hardcoded behavior that requires custom modification to adapt to changing requirements.

What is a Dataset?

As my last post highlighted, I’ve been thinking about how we can find and discover datasets and their related APIs and services. I’m thinking of putting together some simple tools to help explore and encourage the kind of linking that my diagram illustrated.

There’s some related work going on in a few areas which is also worth mentioning:

Within the UK Government Linked Data group there’s some work progressing around the notion of a “registry” for Linked Data that could be used to collect dataset metadata as well as supporting dataset discovery. There’s a draft specification which is open for comment. I’d recommend you ignore the term “registry” and see it more as a modular approach for supporting dataset discovery, lightweight Linked Data publishing, and “namespace management” (aka URL redirection). A registry function is really just one aspect of the model.There’s an Open Data on the Web workshop in April which will cover a range of topics including dataset discovery. My current thoughts are partly preparation for that event (and I’m on the Programme Committee)There’s been some discussion and a draft proposal for adding the Dataset type to Schema.org. This could result in the publication of more embedded metadata about datasets. I’m interested in tools that can extract that information and do something useful with it.

Thinking about these topics I realised that there are many definitions of “dataset”. Unsurprisingly it means different things in different contexts. If we’re defining models, registries and markup for describing datasets we may need to get a sense of what these different definitions actually are.

As a result, I ended up looking around for a series of definitions and I thought I’d write them down here.

Introduction to: Triplestores - semanticweb.com

Introduction to: Triplestores - semanticweb.com | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

Triplestores are Database Management Systems (DBMS) for data modeled using RDF. Unlike Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS), which store data in relations (or tables) and are queried using SQL, triplestores store RDF triples and are queried using SPARQL.

A key feature of many triplestores is the ability to do inference. It is important to note that a DBMS typically offers the capacity to deal with concurrency, security, logging, recovery, and updates, in addition to loading and storing data. Not all Triplestores offer all these capabilities (yet).

NXP Blog » Is Linked Data the future of data integration in the enterprise?

In today’s multi-screen world we need to be able to get relevant content to the customer, at the right time in their format and language of choice. Life is no longer as simple as making PDF documents, we need to feed consistent information to all our multi-channel publications (web/mobile/print) and those of our partners. This blog post explains how NXP is tackling these challenges.

At NXP, similar to many other large organizations, we have what you might call a ‘brownfield’ information landscape. Data and content is scattered and duplicated across numerous applications and databases leading to inconsistent information, complex systems and inefficient processes. The outcome is that people are unable to find what they are looking for, or find conflicting information. Common approaches like Data Warehousing, Master Data Management and Service-Oriented Architecture all tackle parts of the problem, but none provide a total solution.

Semantic Web and Link Building without Links > The Future for SEO? | SEO Calgary | MikeHoyles.com | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

Another key element of semantic ‘link building’ is to build out your relevance to widen the scope of what you are ‘about’. If Google is looking to diversify results then the more words and phrases you can associate yourself with the better.

This means expanding your repertoire. Writing more about those peripheral semantic phrases that are still on brand but may help you rank for a greater number of related searches.

CSV linked data

CSV linked data | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

I’ve been thinking for years about what is now called “linked data“: about how long the idea has been limping along, and about whether it will ever catch on the way HTML did. As we discovered over two decades ago with HTML, the simple act of linking things together has enormous value, and it’s about time we did it with data.

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.

Matt Shearer of the BBC recently reported that the BBC’s News Lab team will begin exploringlinked data technologies. He writes, “Hi I’m Matt Shearer, delivery manager for Future Media News. I manage the delivery of the News Product and I also lead on BBC News Labs. BBC News Labs is an innovation project which was started during 2012 to help us harness the BBC’s wider expertise to explore future opportunities. Generally speaking BBC News believes in allowing creative technologists to innovate and influence the direction of the News product. For example the delivery of BBC News’ responsive design mobile service started in 2011 when we made space for a multidiscipline project to explore responsive design opportunities for BBC News.
