Linked (Open) Data is a technology and a political initiative designed to facilitate general access to high quality data from diverse domains. It is a movement which inherits technologies from the Semantic Web effort, and to some extent grew out of some frustration with that initiative. I will discuss some of the background and the current state of the art in the linked data initiative. I will describe DBpedia, an automatically extracted linked dataset from WIkipedia. Finally I will demonstrate an iOS application I developed for using linked data in an educational tool, which has highlighted some of the frustrations with the current status of linked data.

Csaba Veres
I am an Associate Professor from the University of Bergen at the Department of Information and Media Studies, and associated with the Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology (SLATE) at UiB.

I received my Ph.D. in Psycholinguistics, where I was interested in the way semantic representations were computed in sentence comprehension. But my interests were more broad, encompassing everything to do with conceptual structure and how it is learned, and especially the way this interacted with language. In the years following my Ph.D., I drifted away from Psychology and into Computer Science, where I have maintained my interest in semantics and language through my work with semantic web technologies. I prefer working on practical rather than theoretical issues, which is one reason I drifted away from theoretical, experimental cognitive psychology. My focus has been to discover ways in which linguistic knowledge can be used in semantic web applications. This has given birth to a number of applications including semantic text markup and tools which support full blown ontology construction through natural language. I have also been working on what we call Social Semantic Information Systems, which aim to bring semantic technologies into social web applications.
