Continuous generation of versioned collections’ members with RML and LDES

by Dylan Van Assche, Julián Rojas Meléndez, Pieter Colpaert

When evolving datasets are used to generate a knowledge graph, it is usually challenging to keep the graph synchronized in a timely manner when changes occur in the source data. Current approaches fully regenerate a knowledge graph in such cases, which may be time consuming depending on the data type, size, and update frequency. We propose a contin…

Balancing RDF generation from heterogeneous data sources

by Dylan Van Assche

Knowledge graphs in RDF are often generated from heterogeneous data sources to power services. However, knowledge graph generation is an unbalanced effort for producers compared to consumers of a knowledge graph. In this paper, I present my research about (i) investigating current RDF knowledge graph production and consumption approaches, and (ii) …

RDF Graph Validation Using Rule-Based Reasoning

by Anastasia Dimou, Ben De Meester, Dörthe Arndt, Pieter Heyvaert, Ruben Verborgh

The correct functioning of Semantic Web applications requires that given RDF graphs adhere to an expected shape. This shape depends on the RDF graph and the application’s supported entailments of that graph. During validation, RDF graphs are assessed against sets of constraints, and found violations help refining the RDF graphs. However, existing v…

Rule-driven inconsistency resolution for knowledge graph generation

by Anastasia Dimou, Ben De Meester, Pieter Heyvaert, Ruben Verborgh

Knowledge graphs, which contain annotated descriptions of entities and their interrelations, are often generated using rules that apply semantic annotations to certain data sources. (Re)using ontology terms without adhering to the axioms defined by their ontologies results in inconsistencies in these graphs, affecting their quality. Methods and too…

Parallel RDF generation from heterogeneous big data

by Anastasia Dimou, Gerald Haesendonck, Pieter Heyvaert, Ruben Verborgh, Wouter Maroy

To unlock the value of increasingly available data in high volumes, we need flexible ways to integrate data across different sources. While semantic integration can be provided through RDF generation, current generators insufficiently scale in terms of volume. Generators are limited by memory constraints. Therefore, we developed the RMLStreamer, a …

Mapping languages: analysis of comparative characteristics

by Anastasia Dimou, Ben De Meester, Pieter Heyvaert, Ruben Verborgh

RDF generation processes are becoming more interoperable, reusable, and maintainable due to the increased usage of mapping languages: languages used to describe how to generate an RDF graph from (semi-)structured data. This leads to a rise of new mapping languages, each with different characteristics. However, it is not clear which mapping language…
