Just came across this. This is a cool visualization of freebase data as nodes and edges. The nodes have icons depending on their types. Nice to play with.

StYLiD wins with the vision of a future where ordinary people publish structured data

The Semantic Puzzle | And the winner is: The vision of a future where ordinary people publish structured data

Good news 🙂 The vision of StYLiD was selected as the winner in the Linked Data Vision competition organized by the Semantic Web company for the Linked Data Planet conference and expo. The announcement is online with nice appraisal.

I am thankful to the people who appreciated my thoughts and offered me such an honor. I hope this will really help in bringing my ideas to light, making the StYLiD application widely used by people for their own benefit and joining the global efforts to realize the Giant Global Graph.

StYLiD: Social Information Sharing with Free Creation of Structured Linked Data

StYLiD: Social Information Sharing with Free Creation of Structured Linked Data

I presented this paper about StYLiD in the Social Web and Knowledge Management Workshop (SWKM 2008), April 22nd, co-located at the 17th World Wide Web Conference WWW2008, Beijing, China. It was a half-day workshop with only 6 selected papers. The session was interesting and very relevant to my area of research.  This was my first time to attend the WWW conference. Quite an honor to be in such a great conference 😉

Here is my paper and here are my slides.

Semantic Web Pipes

Semantic Web Pipes

The presentation about the Semantic Web Pipes from DERI in the WWW 2008 conference, developers track was very impressive. It is based on the idea of yahoo pipes of mixing and channeling data through operators, but for semantically structured data which offers more powerful operations. It also offers impressive GUI for handling the pipes though not as beautiful as yahoo pipes GUI. Sometime ago I had also presented similar idea of Semantic Web pipes for SocioBiblog, a semantic blogging system for decentralized flow of bibliographic information in communities. However, it only had limited operations of mixing feeds and filtering by metadata elements.
