Proposal for Extending New Linked Data Rules for the Semantic Web

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6686)


Semantic content annotations are not enough to construct the Semantic Web; these semantic data need to be linked. This is what the Linked Data fourth rule covers. Apparently, only the author of the content can do this task, but in this article we explore the possibilities of semantic technology and we study whether it is possible to create some types of semantic links more automatically, without intervention by the author. Furthermore, we study the problem of guaranteeing that the annotation in fact represents the content to which it refers, bearing in mind that the annotation should be as immediate as possible. As a result of these considerations, two new rules are proposed that make very clear the need to develop tools that automate the common-ontology based data link, thereby facilitating the update, security and consistency of the semantic information.
