15th ESWC 2017 is a major venue for discussing the latest scientific results and technology innovations around semantic technologies.
Mohammad Abdel-Qader from ZBW 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 (KGs). 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.
