Building the Web of Data
Presented by Phil Archer (World Wide Web Consortia (W3C)
We have come a long way since Tim Berners-Lee posted a proposal for the creation of the World Wide Web at CERN in 1991. The power of the Internet to discover, view, share and publish data, as well as documents, is less well known, with people often preferring more traditional means of exchanging data, such as on USBs. Unique Reference Identifiers (URIs) and established protocols allow almost everything we need to do with data online. This presentation highlighted W3C’s guidelines for data sharing and linking to create the ‘web of data’.
