Linked Data is Merely More Data

Prateek Jain, Pascal Hitzler, Peter Yeh, Kunal Verma, Amit Sheth
In this position paper, we argue that the Linked Open Data (LoD) Cloud, in its current form, is only of limited value for furthering the Semantic Web vision. Being merely a weakly linked "triple collection," it will only be of very limited benefit for the AI or Semantic Web communities. We describe the corresponding problems with the LoD Cloud and give directions for research to remedy the situation.
