Keynote talk at the 18th International Conference on Business Information Systems, 24-26 June 2015, Poznań, Poland
Motivated by Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, and Facebook, hundreds of thousands of websites have started to annotate structured data within their pages using markup formats such as Microdata, RDFa, and Microformats. In parallel, the adoption of Linked Data technologies by government agencies, libraries, and scientific institutions has risen considerably. In his talk, Christian Bizer will give an overview of the content profile of the resulting Web of Data. He will showcase applications that exploit the Web of Data and will discuss the challenges of integrating and cleansing data from thousands of independent Web data sources.
