This module introduces the main principles of Linked Data, the underlying technologies and background standards. It provides basic knowledge for how data can be published over the Web, how it can be queried, and what are the possible use cases and benefits. As an example, we use the development of a music portal (based on the MusicBrainz dataset), which facilitates access to a wide range of information and multimedia resources relating to music. The module also includes some multiple choice questions in the form of a quiz, screencasts of popular tools and embedded videos.

poor lecture. not all researchers are good teachers. poor attendees of summer school paid 800 euros for registration and thats what they had. Better check youtube tutorials.

With the rapid development of mobile internet and Internet of Things applications, the conventional centralized cloud computing is encountering severe challenges, such as high latency, low Spectral Efficiency (SE), and non-adaptive machine type of communication.

Below we will provide you with key specs regarding some of the models listed above so you have a better understanding on what to expect. More specifically, this is the data regarding three models from the Twinpeak 2, the N-Peak, and the Alpha series, respectively.REC offers a variety of solar panels perfect for either residential or commercial systems. Because they are many, in our REC solar panels review, we will mainly focus on six. These include the new series, Alpha, which came out recently and offers top solar cells quality specially designed for powering houses.

You should know the pros and cons of data publishing over the web. This meeting was amazing to know the basics of knowledge and data that is published over the websites and they can visit <a href="">visit this page</a> for personal background check on myself. The background data and the linked data are very important for your website. These can make your sites well and famous.
