An autosuggest service based on lod backlinks

This video was recorded at 10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Bonn 2011. Augmented and meaningful interlinking between the triple- stores of the lod cloud is vital to the success of the linked-data movement; the employment of URIs alone is not enough to integrate datasets and make them accessible to humans and machines. In this paper, a layered interlinking architecture is presented, based on the concept of a registry, a place where linked-data services can store information about entities in an open and expandable way. As a demonstrator for the Billion Triple Challenge, an autosuggest application is presented (, capable of enhancing the interlinking among diverse datasets through the utilization of backlinks, i.e. references to the URIs of a local dataset originating from remote datasets.
