LOD2 Webinar Series: SILK – Link Discovery Framework

This webinar in the course of the LOD2 webinar series will present use cases and live demos of the Free University of Berlin’ SILK.

The 1st version of the LOD2 Stack has been published in September 2011 in the form of a LOD2 Stack demo and the downloadable LOD2 Stack virtual machine image – additional details and the instructions on installing the LOD2 Stack from scratch are available in the HOW-TO-START document.

SILK is a tool for discovering relationships between data items within different Linked Data sources. The declarative Silk Link Specification Language (Silk-LSL) allows the user to specify identity resolution heuristics which define the conditions data items must fulfil in order to be interlinked. The LOD2 stack employs Silk to identify URIs which represent the same real-world entity.”

This webinar will be presented by the LOD2 Partner: Free University of Berlin, Germany.

The LOD2 webinar series is powered by the LOD2 project organised and produced by the Semantic Web Company (Austria). If you are interested in Linked (Open) Data principles and mechanisms, LOD tools & services and concrete use cases that can be realised using LOD then join us in the LOD2 webinar series! The LOD2 team is looking forward to meeting you at the webinar!!

Date: 21.02. 2012, 04.00pm – 05.00pm CET
