Winnipeg City’s NOW [Data] Portal

The Winnipeg City's NOW (Neighbourhoods Of Winnipeg) Portal is an initiative to create a complete neighbourhood web portal for its citizens. At the core of the project we have a set of about 47 fully linked, integrated and structured datasets of things of interests to Winnipegers.

The portal has six main sections: topics of interests, maps, history, census, images and economic development. The portal is meant to be used by citizens to find things of interest in their neibourhood, to learn their ...

Introducing a Graph-based Semantic Layer in Enterprises

Things, not Strings Entity-centric views on enterprise information and all kinds of data sources provide means to get a more meaningful picture about all sorts of business objects. This method of information processing is as relevant to customers, citizens, or patients as it is to knowledge workers like lawyers, doctors, or researchers. People actually do not search for documents, but rather for facts and other chunks of information to bundle them up to provide answers to concrete questions. Strings, or names for things are not the same as the things they refer to. Still, those two aspects of an entity ...

AKSW Colloquium, 15th August, 3pm, RDF query relaxation

On the 15th of August at 3 PM, Michael Röder will present the paper "RDF Query Relaxation Strategies Based on Failure Causes" of Fokou et al. in P702. Abstract Recent advances in Web-information extraction have led to the creation of several large Knowledge Bases (KBs). Querying these KBs often results in empty answers that do not serve the users' needs. Relaxation of the failing queries is one of the cooperative techniques used to retrieve alternative results. Most of the previous work on RDF query relaxation compute a set of relaxed queries and execute them in a similarity-based ranking order. Thus, ...

schema.org update: hotels, datasets, "health-lifesci" and "pending" extensions...

Schema.org 3.1 has been released ! Many thanks to everyone in the community who has contributed to this update, which includes substantial new vocabulary for describing hotels and accommodation , some improvements around dataset description, as well as the usual collection of new examples, bugfixes, usability, infrastructural, standards compatibility and conceptual consistency improvements. This release builds upon the recent 3.0 release . In version 3.0 we created a health-lifesci extension as a new home for the extensive collection of medical/health terms that were introduced back in 2012. Publishers and webmasters do not need to update their markup for this change, it ...

Article accepted in Journal of Web Semantics

We are happy to announce that the article " DL-Learner - A Framework for Inductive Learning on the Semantic Web " by Lorenz Bühmann , Jens Lehmann and Patrick Westphal was accepted for publication in the Journal of Web Semantics: Science, Services and Agents on the World Wide Web . Abstract: In this system paper, we describe the DL-Learner framework, which supports supervised machine learning using OWL and RDF for background knowledge representation. It can be beneficial in various data and schema analysis tasks with applications in different standard machine learning scenarios, e.g. in the life sciences, as well as Semantic Web ...

AKSW Colloquium, 18.07.2016, AEGLE and node2vec

On Monday 18.07.2016, Kleanthi Georgala will give her Colloquium presentation for her paper "An Efficient Approach for the Generation of Allen Relations" , that was accepted at the European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) 2016. Abstract Event data is increasingly being represented according to the Linked Data principles. The need for large-scale machine learning on data represented in this format has thus led to the need for efficient approaches to compute RDF links between resources based on their temporal properties. Time-efficient approaches for computing links between RDF resources have been developed over the last years. However, dedicated approaches for linking ...

Setting up a local SPARQL endpoint

... has never been easier, and I have to say, with Virtuoso it already was easy. Step 1: download the jar and fire up the server OK, you do need Java installed, and for many this is still the case, despite Oracle doing their very best to totally ruin it for everyone . But seriously, visit the Blazegraph website ( @blazegraph ) and download the jar and type: $ java -jar blazegraph.jar It will give some output on the console, including a webpage with SPARQL endpoint, upload form etc. That it tracks past queries is a nice extra. Step 2: there ...
