Generating and Summarizing Explanations for Linked Data

Generating and Summarizing Explanations for Linked Data

This video was recorded at 11th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC), Crete 2014. Linked Data consumers may need explanations for debugging or understanding the reasoning behind producing the data. They may need the possibility to transform long explanations into more understandable short explanations. In this paper, we discuss an approach to explain reasoning over Linked Data. We introduce a vocabulary to describe explanation related metadata and we discuss how publishing these metadata as Linked Data enables explaining reasoning over Linked Data. Finally, we present an approach to summarize these explanations taking into account user specied explanation ltering criteria.
