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] Linked data infographic.

We are very pleased to announce that five of our papers were accepted for presentation at ESWC 2014. These papers range from natural-language processing to the acquisition of temporal data.

OpenLink Data Explorer Extension. DBpedia. 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. Sémanticpédia. Thinkbase. ConceptNet 5. Open Data.

Crée en 1996 Dadi, produit pionnier et phare de l’URFIST de Lyon, a eu pour objectif de recenser les ressources libres disponibles sur le Web à une époque où ce dernier faisait ses premiers pas, sans moteurs de recherches. Jean Pierre Lardy, alors co-responsable de l’Urfist de Lyon et enseignant chercheur en physique, a imaginé puis animé Dadi pendant une quinzaine d’années, dans le but de donner à voir les ressources du web invisible en libre accès utiles au monde académique. Véritable aide à la recherche dans un univers en pleine mutation, DADI connaîtra un usage important et comptera parmi les ressources incontournables en France pour la recherche d’information. Son impact rayonnera dans les pays francophones comme la Belgique et le Canada. La Bibliothèque Nationale de France a réalisé un archivage régulier de Dadi.

Parts of the project are released as OpenCyc, which provides an API, RDF endpoint, and data dump under an open source license. Overview[edit] The project was started in 1984 as part of Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation. The objective was to codify, in machine-usable form, millions of pieces of knowledge that compose human common sense. CycL presented a proprietary knowledge representation schema that utilized first-order relationships.[1] In 1986, Doug Lenat estimated the effort to complete Cyc would be 250,000 rules and 350 man-years of effort.[2] The Cyc Project was spun off into Cycorp, Inc. in Austin, Texas in 1994.

The primary aims of the UPTAP initiative are to: build capacity in secondary data analysis; promote the use of large-scale social science data sets, both qualitative and quantitative; improve our understanding of demographic trends and processes which affect society and the population; and collaborate and communicate with user groups and policy-making individuals and organisations.


The initiative is predominantly targeted at early or mid-career researchers wishing to enhance their skills, experience, knowledge and expertise in secondary data analysis. Consequently, the principal objectives of the UPTAP initiative are to: The UPTAP initiative aims to complement the activities of the National Centre for Research Methods and its nodes around the country.

Bienvenue. Databases - United Nations. Making Data Social. The Socrata Open Data API (SODA) allows software developers to access data hosted in Socrata data sites programmatically.

Making Data Social

Developers can create applications that use the SODA APIs to visualize and “mash-up” Socrata datasets in new and exciting ways. Create an iPhone application that visualizes government spending in your area, a web application that allows citizens to look up potential government benefits they'd overlooked, or a service that automatically emails you when new earmarks are added to bills that you wish to track. To start accessing this dataset programmatically, use the API endpoint provided below. For more information and examples on how to use the Socrata Open Data API, reference our Developer Documentation. Bases de données. Socrata. New York Times - Linked Open Data. Build Your Own NYT Linked Data Application. Now that we’ve published nearly 10,000 of our tags as Linked Open Data, you’re probably wondering what kind of cool applications you can build with this data.

To help you get started (and since linked data applications are a little different from your average Web application), we thought we’d provide a sample application and detailed information about how we built it. Our sample application, “Who Went Where,” lets you explore recent Times coverage of the alumni of a specified college or university. The Who Went Where application (click for larger image) You can find the application here and beautified source code here. Before we dive into the source, let’s take a high-level look at the application’s control (which is fairly straightforward).

Despite the enthusiasm and curiosity that such a ubiquitous and important item merits, arguably the only people to discuss them are those with curiosity enough to thumb through the dry and technical literature that chronicles the database's ascension.1 Which is a shame, because the use of databases actually illuminates so much about how we come to terms with the world around us.

The history of databases is a tale of experts at different times attempting to make sense of complexity. As a result, the first information explosions of the early computer era left an enduring impact on how we think about structuring information. The practices, frameworks, and uses of databases, so pioneering at the time, have since become intrinsic to how organizations manage data.
