Linked Open Data: Discussion

Linked Open Data: Discussion

This video was recorded at 4th European Semantic Technology Conference (ESTC), Vienna 2010. Linked Data, if it were plotted on a hype curve today, may arguably be best placed at the peak of inflated expectations. Like the Semantic Web before it, it is presented as a solution for every imaginable problem. Like the Semantic Web before it, it will most likely be used successfully in specific cases and fail to get uptake in other domains. Is the expenditure on solutions in e-government justified? Are there industries losing out by not looking at Linked Data? In this panel, we will explore where the opporunities for Linked Data technology will be found once it passes through the trough of disillusionment and reaches the slope of enlightenment?
