MOVING successfully participated in the 15th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2018). The ESWC is one of the major venues to discuss the recent research on Semantic Web. This year, it was held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece from 3rd to 7th June 2018 and accounted for roughly 250 participants from different countries around the world.
Mohammad Abdel-Qader presented the MOVING paper “Analyzing the Evolution of Vocabulary Terms and their Impact on the LOD Cloud” in the research track. The paper studies the impact of vocabulary change on the knowledge graphs. Some experiments are conducted on three large-scale KGs: the Billion Triples Challenge (BTC) datasets, the Dynamic Linked Data Observatory (DyLDO) dataset, and Wikidata. The results show that the change frequency of terms is rather low, but can have a high impact due to a large amount of distributed graph data on the web. Furthermore, most of the newly coined terms are adopted immediately afterward. The talk included many results related to the change, use, and adoption of vocabulary terms.
