Next Generation Internet webinar on Linked Data

June 21, 2021 @ 09:30 - 11:30

NGI Zero

In this free online event, projects from across the Next Generation Internet universe present their state-of-the-art work on Linked Data and other forms of metadata. The event is organized by NLnet foundation on June 21st 2021 at 9.30 CEST.

The webinar brings together innovative projects advancing the state of art in Linked Data. These efforts funded by various funding programs of the Next Generation Internet initiative will share their progress to extract, add and use worthwhile metadata to our data and online information.

Linked Data is a broad field of research and development that aims to make digital information more structured, interlinked and meaningful (or “semantic”) — to computers but also to humans. This can for instance enable more personal and insightful search engine results, insights into complex data sets but also new avenues for online social networking (for example, the decentralized social networking protocol ActivityPub powering federated communities uses Linked Data). NGI projects are working on the technical and infrastructural hurdles to overcome before everyone can benefit from these richer online experiences.

During this online session a range of projects funded by the Next Generation Internet initiative will discuss their progress using, extracting and manipulating Linked Data and discuss how this field of research and development can move into the future.
