Links for computers and humans

Posted by rdmpage on 20 Apr 2009 at 08:57 GMT

I think there's enormous potential in semantic markup of papers, but I worry that linking terms to HTML pages doesn't get us much further. Great for humans, not so good for computers. For example, using http://dbpedia.org URIs for institutions would be both humand and computer friendly, would be a step towards integrating this paper with Linked Data (http://www.linkeddata.org). I've written a more extensive discussion of this here: http://iphylo.blogspot.co...

Competing interests declared: I was a semi-finalist in the Elsevier Grand Challenge, for David Shotton is a judge.
