Big Graph Data Panel

Big Graph Data Panel

This video was recorded at 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Boston 2012. he Semantic Web / Linked Data has grown immensely over the past years. When the Semantic Web community started working over a decade ago the main question was where to get the data from. By now the question of how to process ever increasing amount of semantic/linked data has come to people's utmost attention. The goal of this panel is to shed light on the various approaches/options for Big Graph Data processing. Possible questions include: Does the Semantic Web need any central infrastructures? (It's a Web, after all?) Or will a handful of large single-owner infrastructures dominate the Semantic Web, just as they now dominate the current Web? And if so, will such infrastructures be based on the standard relational model? Or on MapReduce-centric key/value-pairs? Is Google's (centralised) Knowledge Graph anathema to the Semantic *Web* ? Are triplestore vendors just reinventing the old database wheels? What is the role of clustered MapReduce-like solutions and where are their limits for processing semantic web data?
