1. Brainstorming

1.1 Tools

  • Crawling and Indexing (Synchronization)
  • Link Discovery
  • UI/Linked Data Browsers
  • Programming Frameworks (e.g. RDF in Active Resource for Ruby)
  • Revise Best Practices
  • Answers on the LD FAQ
  • Reasoning and Inference
  • Easier RDB to RDF/LD
  • Collaborative tool to maintain vocabs and schemas
  • Querying Linked Data
  • Finding URIs

1.3 Best Practices for consuming Linked Data

  • Create Linked Data ecosystem: share results of linked data combination as linked data so others can reuse it.

1.4 What are the things on the web that we can't do easily now

  • Finding the most relevant research papers. Finding papers on new topics in which you may not know the correct keywords
  • Finding the optimal hotels when traveling
  • Optimal travel from start to finish
  • Track threads on news
  • Mashup applications
  • Analyze scientific datasets
