Linked Data provide a pragmatic approach to an evolution towards Semantic Web vision; the first priority here is the publication of open linked data, which, in turn, can lead to the development of more intelligent applications based on the use of meta-data and ontologies. This seminar will start by discussing the value of linked data in the UK Higher Education (HE) sector and by presenting a roadmap of semantic technology adoption, which was developed as part of recent project activities. It will subsequently discuss the motivation and the challenges to deploying a HE Linked Data Infrastructure and present relevant work on linked data repository deployment in HE institutions and on supporting distributed queries across such repositories. The Web Science perspective on studying the impact of such infrastructures in HE will also be discussed.
