The number of datasets published in the Web of Data as part of the Linked Data Cloud is constantly increasing. The Linked Data paradigm is based on the unconstrained publication of information by different publishers, and the interlinking of web resources through “same-as” links which specify that two URIs correspond to the same real world object. In the vast number of data sources participating in the Linked Data Cloud, this information is not explicitly stated but is discovered using instance matching techniques and tools.
Peter Haase from Metaphacts kicked-off the afternoon presentations during last LDBC TUC Meeting in Barcelona with the presentation "Querying the Wikidata Knowledge Graph"
Next 31st of May the GRADES workshop will take place in Melbourne within the ACM/SIGMOD presentation. GRADES started as an initiative of the Linked Data Benchmark Council in the SIGMOD/PODS 2013 held in New York. Read more information about the event here.
LDBC is presenting two papers at the next edition of the ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference held in Melbourne from May 31st to June 4th, 2015. The annual SCM SIGMOD/PODS conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools and experiences.
During last TUC Meeting in Barcelona we were glad to welcome Mark D. Wilkinson from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid with his presentation "SADI: A design-pattern for “native” Linked-Data Semantic Web Services".
Check the slides and video to learn more about how SADI uses OWL and RDF and about SHARE the health research environment that answers SPARQL queries with SADI.
The second part of presentations during the first day at the TUC Meeting in Barcelona started with the presentation from Jerven Bolleman from the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics called "20 billion triples in production".
Watch Jerven Bolleman talking about why and how the Uniprot SPARQL endpoint allows working with billion of triples from biological datasets.
To end the first day slot of the morning presentations during last 6th TUC Meeting in Barcelona Claudio Martella from VUA was presenting Lighthouse: Large-scale graph pattern matching on Giraph.
Watch Claudio Martella to learn more about Lighthouse and how it uses Giraph and Cypher.
For the third presentation this last 6th TUC Meeting held in Barcelona we were pleased to welcome Tomer Sagi from HP.
Watch his presentation called "HP Labs: Titan DB on LDBC Interactive" where Tomer introduced the history of the research performed at HP along with his latest work fields.
The second presentation during last LDBC's 6th TUC Meeting that took place in Barcelona was called SPIMBENCH: A Scalable, Schema-Aware, Instance Matching Benchmark for the Semantic Publishing Domain and presented by Tzanina Saveta from FORTH.
Watch Tzanina Saveta presenting the benchmark for the Semantic Publishing domain.
Last 19th and 20th of March took place the sixth edition of the Technical User Community Meeting held in Barcelona. During these two days LDBC hosted more than 15 presentations from key members of the industry and research regarding graphs and RDF that we are going to share as independent blog posts during the following weeks.
