In this paper we address the problem of scalable, native and adaptive query processing over Linked Stream Data integrated with Linked Data. Linked Stream Data consists of data generated by stream sources, e.g., sensors, enriched with semantic descriptions, following the standards proposed for Linked Data. This enables the integration of stream data with(More)
Online communities have become popular for publishing and searching content, as well as for finding and connecting to other users. User-generated content includes, for example, personal blogs, bookmarks, and digital photos. These items can be annotated and rated by different users, and these social tags and derived user-specific scores can be leveraged for(More)
Online communities have recently become a popular tool for publishing and searching content, as well as for finding and connecting to other users that share common interests. The content is typically user-generated and includes, for example, personal blogs, bookmarks, and digital photos. A particularly intriguing type of content is user-generated(More)
Sensing devices are becoming the source of a large portion of the Web data. To facilitate the integration of sensed data with data from other sources, both sensor stream sources and data are being enriched with semantic descriptions, creating Linked Stream Data. Despite its enormous potential, little has been done to explore Linked Stream Data. One of the(More)
The Web has long exceeded its original purpose of a distributed hypertext system and has become a global, data sharing and processing platform. This development is confirmed by remarkable milestones such as the Semantic Web, Web services, social networks and mashups. In parallel with these developments on the Web, the Internet of Things (IoT), i.e., sensors(More)
PageRank-style (PR) link analyses are a cornerstone of Web search engines and Web mining, but they are computationally expensive. Recently, various techniques have been proposed for speeding up these analyses by distributing the link graph among multiple sites. However, none of these advanced methods is suitable for a fully decentralized PR computation in a(More)
Over the last years the Web of Data has developed into a large compendium of interlinked data sets from multiple domains. Due to the decentralised architecture of this compendium, several of these datasets contain duplicated data. Yet, so far, only little attention has been paid to the effect of duplicated data on federated querying. This work presents DAW,(More)
For Linked Data query engines, there are inherent trade-offs between centralised approaches that can efficiently answer queries over data cached from parts of the Web, and live decentralised approaches that can provide fresher results over the entire Web at the cost of slower response times. Herein, we propose a hybrid query execution approach that returns(More)
We propose a live demonstration of MinervaLight, a P2P Web search engine. MinervaLight combines the (previously separate) focused crawler BINGO! (to harvest Web data), the local search engine TopX, and our P2P Web search system MINERVA under one common user interface. The crawler unattendedly downloads and indexes Web data, where the scope of the focused(More)
