60 results for freebase linked data

FreebaseAt ISWC2008 Freebase released its new RDF service for generating RDF representations of Freebase topics, allowing Freebase to be used as Linked Data! To obtain the RDF data for a topic send a GET request to http://rdf.freebase.com/rdf/some.topic.id where "some.topic.id" is replaced by the desired topic identifier (slashes in the identifier must be replaced by dots). Topic data can be represented as N3, RDF/XML or Turtle depending on the preferences expressed in your client's HTTP Accept header. Try it out with the Freebase topic Semantic Web.

Cross-Pollinating DBpedia and FreebaseNow that Freebase is available as Linked Data a big question that comes to mind is whether these two major projects will move to assimilate one another. DBpedia and Freebase – two endeavors primarily focused on curating unstructured and semi-structured data about everything and releasing it back into the wild (with structure) – get the bulk of their information from Wikipedia, so the amount of topical overlap is assumed to be extremely high. DBpedia gains new information when it extracts data from the latest Wikipedia dump, whereas Freebase, in addition to Wikipedia extractions, gains new information through its userbase of editors.

The Seesaw Effect of Algorithms vs. DataOver the years I've noticed that the importance of algorithms and data tends to shift back and forth, depending on which at the time is hardest to duplicate (often from a business perspective). This effect seems to be caused by the availability or demand of one side increasing or decreasing, shifting the balance of importance to the other. At one point the world of software was dominated by the proprietary. The organization with the best software (backend, algorithms, etc) was the dominant entity and data (from say, a Web 2.0 perspective) was generally not the focus. This may have partly been the responsibility of a mindset formed during an era with very little storage space and before mass user activity on the Web.

The Semantic Web has been discussed and debated by academics for years, and really, we are not getting anywhere fast. This post will discuss how to start building semantics into your website from the ground up. While doing this won't create the create the great Semantic Web straight away, it will provide an underground layer of accessible data which applications can start processing and using.

This entry is a response to I will never support the Semantic Web by Brian of d'bug.

I'm getting tired of reading about how the Semantic Web is some kind of pipe dream that will never be realized. The Semantic Web is completely and entirely within our technological reach. People may have been given the impression that we cannot create the Semantic Web because of its complexity, the number of years it has been in development, or even the unanswered questions that still exist for certain problems we will face. These are valid reasons to doubt our progress, but progress is certainly what we are making.

SIOCSemantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC for short) is a framework aimed at connecting online communities and discussions from blogs, forums, content management systems mailing lists, and anything else. In the current Web, communities such as forums and blogs are like islands - they contain valuable information but are not well connected or queryable. SIOC allows you to connect these sites, and enables the extraction of semantic information from unlimited discussion platforms.

Update: Since originally posting this entry, I've added a few more blog posts by authors that are responding to posts listed below.

Recently discussion has erupted on the Web over of what the Semantic Web is and isn't, and if we can even create the Semantic Web. Not that this discussion is new, but of course everyone must be heard. Of the 13 posts I list, some I agree with, but others say things I don't agree with at all.

Here's a list of interesting links for your Saturday morning! I've included the chain of blog posts about recommended Semantic Web books, a post by Mike Bergman about how much he doesn't like the term "Web 3.0," and a few other interesting sites. Enjoy!

The Semantic Web In Part 2 of this series we reviewed Unicode, URI, and XML - three foundational technologies that permeate the existing Web and that are especially relevant to the emerging Semantic Web. We will put all three to use as we take our next step up the Semantic Web layer cake in a review of the Resource Description Framework (RDF). At the same time, we will be taking the visual RDF/OWL editor, Altova SemanticWorks, for a test drive. Since I will be using this tool for the very first time, you can expect an honest review that is rich with screenshots. If you do not already have the software, you may wish to download the trial version now so you can follow along.

Update: Joe from the Squio blog has posted a response to this entry.

Microformats vs. RDFMicroformats are a wildly popular set of formats for embedding metadata within normal XHTML. The primary advantage Microformats offer over RDF (including its embedded serializations) is that you can embed metadata directly in the XHTML, reducing the amount of markup you need to write (e.g. you don't have to write XHTML and additional RDF). Many people have contended that Microformats are a possible replacement for RDF, however Microformats were not designed to cover the same scope as RDF was. While both Microformats and RDF make it possible to store data about data, they simply do not work to solve the same set of problems.
