Silk - A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data

  title={Silk - A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data},
  author={Julius Volz and Christian Bizer and Martin Gaedke and Georgi Kobilarov},
Web of Data is built upon two simple ideas: Employ the RDF data model to publish structured data on the Web and to set explicit RDF links between entities within different data sources. [] Key Method Link conditions may be based on various similarity metrics and can take the graph around entities into account, which is addressed using a path-based selector language. Silk accesses data sources over the SPARQL protocol and can thus be used without having to replicate datasets locally.

Figures and Tables from this paper

LinksB2N: Automatic Data Integration for the Semantic Web
This paper presents LinksB2N, an algorithm for discovering information overlaps in RDF data repositories and performing data integration with no human intervention over data sets that partially share the same domain.
Link++: A Flexible and Customizable Tool for Connecting RDF Data Sources
This paper introduces Link++, an approach that enables the discovery of complex links in a flexible manner and enables the users to generate rich links by specifying a link pattern as well as rules and functions to discover them.
Graphical User Interface for Silk-A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data
This thesis document proposes an application which guides the users through the process of specifying linking conditions during the creation of the Silk LSL program, called Silk Magic, which provides various features for editing linking conditions.
Linkex: A Tool for Link Key Discovery Based on Pattern Structures
This position paper focuses on link key which consists of sets of pairs of properties identifying the same entities across heterogeneous datasets, and proposes to formalize the problem of link key discovery using Pattern Structures (PS), the generalization of Formal Concept Analysis dealing with non binary datasets.
Relational concept analysis for link key extraction ?
This work introduced the notion of link keys as a way to identify node pairs belonging to different classes of the datasets through links which identify individuals across heterogeneous datasets.
Semantic Data Integration for Knowledge Graph Construction at Query Time
A semantic data integration approach named FuhSen is devised that exploits keyword and structured search capabilities of Web data sources and generates on-demand knowledge graphs merging data collected from available Web sources, suggesting that FhSen data integration techniques accurately integrate similar entities semantically into knowledge graphs.
Analyzing broken links on the web of data: An experiment with DBpedia
The paper reports on an experiment to examine the causes of broken links, proposes some treatments for solving this problem, and analyzed and highlighted outgoing links from this hub in an effort to discover broken links.
Discovery of Link Keys in RDF Data Based on Pattern Structures: Preliminary Steps
This paper introduces a specific and original pattern structure where link keys can be discovered in one pass while specifying the pair of classes associated with each link key, focusing on the discovery process and allowing more flexibility.


A declarative framework for semantic link discovery over relational data
This framework is based on declarative specification of the linkage requirements by the user, that allows matching data items in many real-world scenarios to be translated to queries that can run over the relational data source.
How to Publish Linked Data on the Web - Proposal for a Half-day Tutorial at ISWC2008
This tutorial will provide participants with a solid foundation from which to begin publishing Linked Data on the Web, as well as to implement applications that consume Linked data from the Web.
Integration of Semantically Annotated Data by the KnoFuss Architecture
This paper describes how these features are exploited in the architecture KnoFuss, designed to support data-level integration of semantic annotations, in order to solve schema-level problems in the Semantic Web.
Automatic Interlinking of Music Datasets on the Semantic Web
This paper details the application of a particular interlinking algorithm, taking into account both the similarities of web resources and of their neighbours, in two contexts: to link a Creative Commons music dataset to an editorial one, and tolink a personal music collection to corresponding web identifiers.
Conceptual Graph Matching for Semantic Search
This paper proposes an approach for semantic search by matching conceptual graphs by calculating semantic similarities between concepts, relations and conceptual graphs using the detailed definitions of semantic similarity.
Duplicate Record Detection: A Survey
This paper presents an extensive set of duplicate detection algorithms that can detect approximately duplicate records in a database and covers similarity metrics that are commonly used to detect similar field entries.
Overview of Record Linkage and Current Research Directions
This paper provides background on record linkage methods that can be used in combining data from a variety of sources such as person lists business lists. It also gives some areas of current research.
