Back from the Linked Data Planet

I am just back from the Linked Data Planet. Flying all the way from Tokyo, New York seemed to be as far as another planet for me. It was a great opportunity to be in that planet, thanks to the Semantic Web Company for providing me this opportunity by selecting me in the Linked Data Vision competition. I had the honor of meeting Andreas Blumauer, CEO of the Semantic Web Company and having a talk with him. He also talked about StYLiD and offered me some good suggestions.

The Linked Data Planet was really the place to be for the Semantic Web people that time. I had the opportunity to listen to great keynote speakers including Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Kingsley Idehen, Ian Davis, Atanas Kiryakov and Anant Jhingran. I also had an opportunity to talk to Michael Bergman, CEO of Zitgist. I am a frequent reader of his AI3 blog. I also talked with people from Calais and watched a demo from TopQuadrant. Other exhibitors included OpenLink Software, Inc., Franz Inc. (AllegroGraph), Ontotext Lab and others. It seems that interest is growing in the business community about the Semantic Web and Linked Data.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.ย  This was my first time to attend the WWW conference. Quite an honor to be in such a great conference ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here is my paper and here are my slides.

Linked data browsers

Recently, I was playing with several linked data browsers to view data from StYLiD. Amazing to see so many data browsers available today ๐Ÿ™‚

There are also many RDF visualization tools like

…. and so on. Wow! what an impressive list. Please add to it if I missed some.

However, I do not think that these generic RDF or linked data browsers will be useful or usable for general users, who do not know what is RDF or Semantic Web. The user will get lost in the complex data network, with lot of wanted and unwanted data, shown monotonously. I feel that it would be better to hide all this data network from the user and rather provide them useful functionalities or present only some useful data in user friendly way.
