We will reinvigorate national research systems and will share information and best practices. We will improve access to knowledge.world food summit 2009agricultural information management standards and services - dr. johannes keizerCIARD Linked Open Data Infrastructure, Ithaca 2011, May 12

agricultural information management standards and services - dr. johannes keizerCIARD Linked Open Data Infrastructure, Ithaca 2011, May 12What does this mean in practice? I will show this with an example from the BBC.

The biggest consumers (and producers) of LOD are as I know the BBC and the New York times (But now also the US government)15Humboldt Squid page, pulled together from a diversity of Linked Data sources

Today most webpages are driven by databases that can be dynamically queried. They contain through RSS feeds also data from other websitesThis BBC webpage is a big jump further. I has not been composed by humans and it is not from one database generated. It is generated from different datasources that were present as linked open data, linked only through common URIs16..to talk about nowVocabularies and Linked Open DataAn Idea about an InfrastructureElements for the InfrastructureAGROVOC and the VocBenchAgroTagger and OpenCalaisLODE-BDToolsThe RINGImplementation Example: AGRIS

Already now we can easily link to material indexed with Eurovoc, here an example from EuroLex. If the UNBIS thesaurus would be restructured to a concept scheme and published as LOD, related UN documents could be attached automatically by the machine.
