Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The concept of the Semantic Web aims at machine processable and understandable data on the Internet. Based on the Semantic Web, Linked Data and its 5-star deployment scheme is a general foundation and roadmap for accessible and interoperable data. Linked Data gave momentum to new solutions in many areas, including government data, broadcasting, libraries, cultural heritage, biology, advertising, etc. A natural follow-up of the Semantic Web concept is the knowledge graph, which plays a more and more important role in both enterprises and everyday Internet usage. Ontologies and inferencing over Linked Data enable the construction of intelligent services and better information access. In this Special Issue, we are looking for new results or experience reports in the area, especially in the following topics:

  • Innovative applications using Linked Data or knowledge graphs;
  • Services mixing deep learning and ontologies (Semantic AI);
  • Semantic data lakes, big semantic data;
  • New intelligent solutions using ontologies or reasoning;
  • Emerging interoperability formats and solutions;
  • Distributed platforms with distributed knowledge;
  • Semantic Web criticism, amendments and alternative solutions.
