Science, Lightweight Reasoning, and the Web of Data
Thomas, Edward and Pan, Jeff Z. and Taylor, Stuart and Ren, Yuan (2010) Science, Lightweight Reasoning, and the Web of Data. In: Proceedings of the WebSci10: Extending the Frontiers of Society On-Line, April 26-27th, 2010, Raleigh, NC: US.
In the last five years, more than thirteen billion facts have been posted in public, open, semantically rich data sets on the World Wide Web. These data sets and the links between data sets contain an enormous amount of information which is of interest of scientists from all disciplines, but the sheer size of them, combined with the complexity of the underlying languages, makes these data sets unwieldy when tackled with traditional knowledge management tools. In this paper, we look at some new techniques which are available to deal with these problems, and see how and when they should be applied.
