Open Data Intelligence

The Web is a vast source of information, to which more is added every day either in unstructured form (Web pages) or, increasingly, as partially structured sources of information, in particular as Open Data sets, which can be seen as connected graphs of data, most frequently described in the RDF data format recommended by the W3C. Further, RDF data is also the most appropriate format for representing structured information extracted automatically from Web pages, such as the DBPedia database extracted from Wikipedia or Google's InfoBoxes. To intelligently exploit such Open Data collections, Oak has developed a complete framework for RDF data analytics within the recently completed DW4RDF project and continues work on this topic within the ODIN project started this year.
