A web observatory for the machine processability of structured data on the web

Wouter Beek, Paul Groth, Stefan Schlobach, Rinke Hoekstra
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM conference on Web science - WebSci '14  
General human intelligence is needed in order to process content on the Web of Documents. On the Web of Data (WoD), content is intended to be machine-processable as well.  ...  We present LOD Observer, a web observatory that studies the Web from a machine processor's point of view.  ...  By providing an observatory on the state of the machine processability of Web data, we hope to guide interventions at both the technical and social level.  ...

A Streaming Real-Time Web Observatory Architecture for Monitoring the Health of Social Machines

Ramine Tinati, Xin Wang, Ian Brown, Thanassis Tiropanis, Wendy Hall
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15 Companion  
In light of this, Web Observatories now are faced with the challenge of being able to process and republish real-time, big data, Web streams, whilst maintaining access control and data consistency.  ...  Over the past years, streaming Web services have become popular, with many of the top Web platforms now offering near real-time streams of user and machine activity.  ...  However, working with real-time big data sources introduces a number of new challenges for Web Observatory platforms which were initially built with technologies designed to process curated and structured  ...

Towards a taxonomy for web observatories

Ian C. Brown, Wendy Hall, Lisa Harris
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '14 Companion  
In this paper, we propose an initial structure to support a taxonomy for Web Observatories (WO).  ...  The work is based on a small sample of cases drawn from the work of the Web Science Trust and the Web Science Institute and reflects aspects of academic, business and government Observatories.  ...  The definition of Web Observatories (beyond being a repository of data on the Web) is still developing and in these cases Spiteri argues against the use of hierarchies/trees.  ...

Building a Real-Time Web Observatory

Ramine Tinati, Xin Wang, Thanassis Tiropanis, Wendy Hall
2015 IEEE Internet Computing  
We consider the current landscape and challenges of using data, analytics and visualisation, and describe a series of use cases where the Web Observatory can be used.  ...  To that end, we present the Web Observatory, a Web platform with an architecture capable of harvesting, querying, and analysing multiple real-time and historic heterogeneous data, whilst providing data  ...  with controllable access to data produced by human and machines, on and off the Web.  ...

From search to observation

Ian Brown, Wendy Hall, Lisa Harris
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13 Companion  
In this paper, we propose a set of concepts underlying the process and requirements of observation: that is, the process of employing web observatories for research.  ...  We refer to observation as a new concept, distinct from search, which we believe is worthy of study in its own right and note that the process of observation moves the focus of information retrieval away  ...  This highlights the need for new processes to address a problem not solved by existing search technologies: namely that of discovering and assembling well structured and curated results from the web of  ...
