Intelligent navigation of linked data with a graphical interface based on semantic similarity uri icon


  • © 5th International Conference of the Virtual and Augmented Reality in Education, VARE 2019. All rights reserved.Semantic Web Technology proposes the use of linked data and ontologies as a mean for providing meaning to information. Even though several tools for the analysis and visualization of linked data exist, these tools require a lot of specialized knowledge to fulfill a purpose. Additionally, this complexity hardens its use for non-experienced users therefore limiting semantic web applications. This paper describes a tool that combines the use of a recommendation system and an intuitive dynamic user interface for navigating linked data. The tool guides the user to find resources of interest by highlighting those related to his search intention. This is, the platform learns on the fly the user interest and makes recommendations based on the connections between resources.
