TOP 10 Linked Data Research Issues

put it on http://linkeddata.org/research, send out to public-lod and call for review; identify/approach the 'Professors' in the respective fields.

Research Topics

  • Privacy (addressing the problem of increasing data availability about persons)
  • Interculturalization (Multilingual datasets)
  • Updating LD (Synchronizing Datasets and Links, SPARUL Federated Transactions, History, logs, change sets, temporal tracking)
  • Creating LD (Creating and maintaining links, Co-Reference, design methodology for creating linked data, exploring vocabulary creation and usage, using NLP for extracting links)
  • Creating links (schema-level mappings, long-term goal: fusion)
  • Note: we should revise the previous two points
  • Evaluation, metrics, benchmarks
  • Trust (measures, data provenance)
  • Publish LD (access control, licensing/IPR issues (legal and social implications))
  • UI Research (user interface/interaction and usability, visualizing linked data, Ways to search for URIs (not only keyword based), using natural language interfaces)
  • Internet of Things (devices, sensors)
  • Social Impact (economic values and impact)
  • Web scale data management (indexing, crawling)
  • Web Architecture
  • Note: Old DB work applied schema mapping and data fusion

Other Topics (Tools, Applications, etc.)

  • tools to generate linked data, computer aided, default mapping, then refine
  • Multimedia (fragments), addressing and describing parts of media items
  • community/Web-based schema creation and maintainance
