Interview: Sophie Calle

You're one of France's best-known living conceptual artists. You're 51 and visiting Berlin. Your mobile beeps, it's an email from your boyfriend. In a hideously self-absorbed message about human emotion, he dumps you electronically, saying it hurts him more than you. He signs off: "Take care of yourself. " Sophie Calle has filled the French pavilion of the Venice Biennale with a praised exhibition about her emailed dumping letter. "The idea came to me very quickly, two days after he sent it," she said.

At first it was therapy; then art took over. Sitting under a pair of stuffed bull's heads in Calle's warehouse home south of Paris, surveyed by her taxidermy housemates (a bear in a rocking chair, a tiger in a necklace and a zebra), it's hard not to wonder what man would send her a monstrous email like this. He must have known he would be immortalised by French art's game-player in chief, the Marcel Duchamp of emotional dirty laundry. Was she looking for revenge? Peanut Butter Wolf. Linked Data - Design Issues. Up to Design Issues The Semantic Web isn't just about putting data on the web.

Linked Data - Design Issues

It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data. With linked data, when you have some of it, you can find other, related, data. Like the web of hypertext, the web of data is constructed with documents on the web. However, unlike the web of hypertext, where links are relationships anchors in hypertext documents written in HTML, for data they links between arbitrary things described by RDF,. Use URIs as names for things Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names. Simple. The four rules I'll refer to the steps above as rules, but they are expectations of behavior.

The first rule, to identify things with URIs, is pretty much understood by most people doing semantic web technology. The second rule, to use HTTP URIs, is also widely understood. The basic format here for RDF/XML, with its popular alternative serialization N3 (or Turtle). Basic web look-up or in RDF/XML. Creating, Deploying and Exploiting Linked Data (1) Creating, Deploying and Exploiting Linked Data. About. DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web.


DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link the different data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope that this work will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in some new interesting ways. Furthermore, it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking, and improving the encyclopedia itself. Upcoming Events News Call for Ideas and Mentors for GSoC 2014 DBpedia + Spotlight joint proposal (please contribute within the next days)We started to draft a document for submission at Google Summer of Code 2014: are still in need of ideas and mentors. The DBpedia Knowledge Base Knowledge bases are playing an increasingly important role in enhancing the intelligence of Web and enterprise search and in supporting information integration.

Disco Hyperdata Browser

The browser renders all information, that it can find on the Semantic Web about a specific resource, as an HTML page. This resource description contains hyperlinks that allow you to navigate between resources. While you move from resource to resource, the browser dynamically retrieves information by dereferencing HTTP URIs and by following rdfs:seeAlso links. News 04.03.2007: SemanticWebCentral provides another Linked Data browser called Objectviewer. 03.10.2007: OpenLink has published a new Data Web Browser which, like Disco, also enables you to browse Linked Data on the Web. 01.16.2007: Ivan Herman has written a Disco Bookmarklet. 1. The browser is a server-side application that can be used without installing anything on your machine.

Linked Data

In computing, linked data (often capitalized as Linked Data) describes a method of publishing structured data so that it can be interlinked and become more useful. It builds upon standard Web technologies such as HTTP, RDF and URIs, but rather than using them to serve web pages for human readers, it extends them to share information in a way that can be read automatically by computers. This enables data from different sources to be connected and queried.[1] Tim Berners-Lee, director of the World Wide Web Consortium, coined the term in a design note discussing issues around the Semantic Web project.[2] Principles[edit] Tim Berners-Lee outlined four principles of linked data in his Design Issues: Linked Data note,[2] paraphrased along the following lines: All kinds of conceptual things, they have names now that start with HTTP.I get important information back.
