This is a comprehensive and primer review of RDF. I don't know if "linked data" is a specific term, but in this book, it's RDF, and not just "casual" RDF. It's not just embedded metadata -- this is a hardcore look at creating what are essentially distributed databases based on RDF data. Not for the faint of heart, and not something you're going to retain unless you're following along and working through the materials. ...more

Linked data is ontology for masses. Knowledge mining requires efficient ontological data structures and once was only a limited field of study good for academics. But the explosion of public networked systems, namely the internet, and more importantly the availability of scalable data centres that can hold large terabytes of data for low-cost, pushed the knowledge-mining frontier onto public.

It is good to see a book that covers the linked-data in reasonable depth for all to understand easily and

The book represents a great introduction into the field of linked data. It is neither a survey nor an academical course but a deep consistent overview aimed at a practitioner. It can be very useful for anyone who wants some single source to get quick understanding of main concepts in linked data. The book is full of examples illustrating every minor and major concept introduced. Even listings of document sources which may seem too long at the first glance ultimately turn to complement the text ...more

Linked Data or Semantic Web was one of the gray areas to me before I read what seems to be the only popularized publication of this kind in the Universe. But it is such a pity that not enough effort was devoted to propelling the Semantic Web capabilities further. I can tell now why after I read this book: it supercharges the web! For example it opens new capabilities to ‘machine to human’ or vice versa interactions. Also it allows a web developer to tightly integrate disperse data sources, or si ...more

Being a newbie and implementing this technology recently I found the book a good introduction to linked data.

The book is well organized, and the chapters are explained step by step with techniques, and tools. It first starts with an introduction of what linked data is, and gives examples of how it is used by BBC, Google, Facebook, BestBuy, and others, and how it has improved their click through rates.

Then talks about how LOD cloud has grown with a visual that shows how things are linked to eac

A solid overview of using linked data. Disappointed that the examples didn't go into more detail, but a great starting point. ...more

Nice review of best practices how to intentionally accrue and then heroically fight accidental complexity.

If you've found yourself stuck with a RDF store you can't get rid of - then it's a great and useful book, no objections at all. If you need to import/export Semantic Web formats, that's fine too.

Just don't try to use them for internal storage and processing. It's like trying to build a house out of candy, sounds cool until in a couple months you find yourself with a ton of ants, worms and o
