Nigel Shadbolt – School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, England

Abstract:
Governments around the world collect information. This information is often non-personal public sector information. It relates to transport and education, health and the environment, business and leisure. Publishing and releasing this information in a machine readable way could lead to huge economic and social improvements. It would also make the process of Government more transparent and give rise to new classes of information business.

This talk will outline developments in the UK and US which are showing the potential of building a Web of Open Linked Data using Semantic Web Standards. It will discuss the technical as well as social and cultural challenges. It will show examples of the applications that can result. It will consider the impact this could have across a number of dimensions.

Webtermine.at illustriert selbst, wie das Web eingesetzt werden kann, um über einen Themenbereich relativ mühelos den Überblick zu behalten:
Verschiedene Personen tragen die sie jeweils interessierenden Veranstaltungen zu den Themen Internet, Web, Technologie und Netzkultur zusammen - aus den verschiedenen Perspektiven ergibt sich ein breites, vielfältiges Programm, ohne dass es dazu einer Chefredaktion bedarf.
