An Introduction to Linked Data by Sandro Hawke
Date: June 8, 2010
Loctaion: MIT Cambridge, MA
Speaker: Sandro Hawke
Although the first Semantic Web standards are more than ten years old by now, only recently have we begun to actually see machines sharing data on the Web in critical size. The key turning point was the acceptance of the core Linked Data principle, that object identifiers should also work with Web protocols to access useful information. This talk will cover the basic concepts and techniques of publishing and using Linked Data, assuming some familiarity with programming and the Web. No prior knowledge of Semantic Web technologies is required.
