overview • what is the BBC doing with Linked Data • what have we learnt • what are our main challenges
Linked Data Pla3orm • “To organise the BBC's online content around the things that ma5er to our audience” • Link, reuse content and expose it in novel and interesAng ways • Available to many online products
what does that mean? • A lot of data • Deﬁning the scope and the data model very well and clearly • Enabling tools and services, self provisioning
TRIPLESTORE CLIENT APIs CLIENT APIs DOMAIN APIs LDP CORE LDP WRITER key components SHARED LIBRARIES
data • creaAve works (content) • things (reference data) • ontologies – content – things – management and ownership
services • live sites – /sport – /educaAon – news pilot • coming soon – music news – radio
lessons learnt Adding complexity while not directly adding value to the proposiAon is not a good idea • “Nice to have”, “cool thing to do” are not compelling reasons when dealing with a producAon, 24/7 live pla3orm
lessons learnt • Trying to be a good LOD ciAzen should be done carefully • Examples – more than 1M unused FOAF triples – Geonames ontology very large and diﬃcult to delete. • Very hard to manage unused models when serving many clients.
lessons learnt • CauAously use restricAons – blank nodes – funcAonal properAes – disjointness – domains and ranges (cause inference, they are not for type checking)
main challenges • decommissioning legacy • shared ownership of common topics • culture – tagging with a purpose – what is your proposiAon (why you want to do it)
main principles • what is the audience proposiAon? – only build what delivers the funcAonality and extend iteraAvely – only add data that add business value • clear ownership – content, concepts, ontologies – management and permissions • bo^om up approach – ﬁrst test, then generalise – controlled pilot builds
