Finally … Assisted Link Discovery

COLANUT configuration windows

Hello world,

We are happy to announce that LIMES has been extended with an interface that will make linking easier than ever before. The COLANUT (Complex Linking in a NUTshell) interface implements time-efficient schema matching algorithms that allow LIMES to discover and suggest initial class and properties matchings for linking. The whole is embedded in an easy-to-use GUI that allows you to create link specifications easily and download them as XML files or simply to run them online. Check COLANUT out at A technical description can be found here.

And before I forget, two papers centered around linking with LIMES were accepted at OM2011, the ontology matching workshop at ISWC. Come around and get all details on the exciting development around LIMES and Link Discovery in general.

Assisted Linked Data Consumption

August 10, 2011 - 11:47 pm by AxelNgonga - One comment »

Yet another project for improving the access to Linked Data! It is our pleasure to announce the first version of the Assisted Linked Data Consumption Engine (ALOE). The aim of ALOE project is to assist users during the consumption from and fusion of Linked Data sources. ALOE achieves this goal by discovering class and property mappings across endpoints even when no schema information is available. Moreover, ALOE provides several functions for transforming the data from the source knowledge base into a format that corresponds to that of the target knowledge base. Therewith, ALOE enables lay and experienced users to consume Linked Data with great ease. More information on ALOE can be found at


Semantics and Media

July 16, 2011 - 3:14 pm by AxelNgonga - No comments »

We partook in the organization of the Semantics and Media Workshop at the University of Mainz, where Axel is a Research Fellow. The aim of the workshop was to bring practitioners and research all around media and semantics together and to discuss the application of semantic technologies to achieve media representation, retrieval and convergence. The workshop took place from the 14th to the 15th and attracted four dozen practitioners and researchers from multiple areas such as publishing, semantic web, information retrieval and classification as well as digital humanities. Results from our research projects LOD2 and SCMS were received with great interest by the participants. The presentations (incl. Sören’s) will be available here soon. Furthermore, the talks will be published asap.

Stay tuned,
