Just playing around. I figured no one's reading this anyway. (I'm trying the slack-rss integration. It worked, after a minute or two. Let's try an update…)

On the 13th of February at 3 PM, Michael Röder will present the two papers "Evaluating Entity Linking: An Analysis of Current Benchmark Datasets and a Roadmap for Doing a Better Job" of van Erp et al. and "Moving away from semantic overfitting in disambiguation datasets" of Postma et al. in P702. Abstract 1 Entity linking has become a popular task in both natural language processing and semantic web communities. However, we find that the benchmark datasets for entity linking tasks do not accurately evaluate entity linking systems. In this paper, we aim to chart the strengths and weaknesses of ...

SLIPO, a new InfAI project kicked-off between the 18 th and 20 th of January in Athens, Greece. Funded by the EU-program "Horizon 2020" , the project is planned to have an operational time until the 31 st of December 2019. Scalable Linking and Integration of Big POI Data (SLIPO) has the goal to transfer the output of the GeoKnow researches to certain challenges of POI data, which becomes more and more indispensable for issues in the fields of tracking, logistics and tourism. Furthermore we are scheduling to improve the scalability of our key research frameworks, such as LIMES, DEER ...

2017-02-02, 2017-02-02, Many libraries are experimenting with publishing their metadata as Linked Data to open up bibliographic silos, usually based on MARC records, to the Web. The libraries who have published Linked Data have all used different data models for structuring their bibliographic data. Some are using a FRBR-based model where Works, Expressions and Manifestations are represented separately. Others have chosen basic Dublin Core, dumbing down their data into a lowest common denominator format. And still others are using variations of BIBFRAME. The proliferation of data models limits the reusability of bibliographic data. In effect, libraries have moved from MARC ...

In the upcoming Colloquium, Simon Bin will discuss the paper " Towards Analytics Aware Ontology Based Access to Static and Streaming Data" by Evgeny Kharlamov et.al. that has been presented at ISWC2017. Abstract Real-time analytics that requires integration and aggregation of heterogeneous and distributed streaming and static data is a typical task in many industrial scenarios such as diagnostics of turbines in Siemens. OBDA approach has a great potential to facilitate such tasks; however, it has a number of limitations in dealing with analytics that restrict its use in important industrial applications. Based on our experience with Siemens, we ...

The latest release informs about the conferences our team attended in 2016 as well as about the published blogposts. Furthermore it gives a short analysis about the survey by which we are able to verify requirements of our benchmarks and the new HOBBIT plattform. Last but not least the release gives a short outlook to our plans in 2017 including the founding of the HOBBIT association. Have a look at the whole press release on the HOBBIT website .

Summary An eventful 2016 draws to a close, steady progress has been made on standards, implementations and apps, for reading and writing to the web. Some press coverage is starting to emerge, with pieces on a decentralized web and putting data back in the hands of owners . Also published was a nice review and predictions for trends in 2017 on the (semantic) web. Linked Data Notifications has become a Candidate Recommendation, and expected to become a full recommendation next year, as the working group has been extended slightly. Data Best Practices on the Web is also now a Proposed ...

I had a seven year old google 'business' account (now called 'G-Suite', previously Google Apps, I think) from back when it was free. Danbri put me onto it, and it was brilliant because you can use your own domain with it. It's been very useful, but I've been thinking of moving to a paid-for service for a while.

I made this Raspberry Pi picture frame - initially with a screen - as a present for my parents for their wedding anniversary. After user testing, I realised that what they really wanted was a tiny version that they could plug into their TV, so I recently made a Pi Zero version to do that. It uses a Raspberry Pi 3 or Pi Zero with full-screen Chromium. I've used Flickr as a backend: I made a new account and used their handy upload-by-email function (which you can set to make uploads private) so that all members of the family can send pictures to it. I initially assumed ...

The idea here is to control a full-screen chromium webpage via a simple remote control (I'm using it for full-screen TV-like prototypes). It's very straightforward really, but I couldn't find the right kind of summary of
