Linked Data - Like It or Loathe It?

  • Speaker:   Dr  Peter F. Patel-Schneider  (Bell Labs)
  • Host:   Uli Sattler

Linked Data was supposed to be "the Semantic Web done right", at least according to Tim Berners-Lee. But just what is Linked Data? How is Linked Data different from the Semantic Web? Is Linked Data really a better way to add semantics to the web, or is it just a way to throw data out on the Web in a way that can be used in hacks? There are some signs that some order is coming to Linked Data, but is this just doing (or redoing) the work that remains to be done (has been done) in the Semantic Web?
