Opinion / Analysis
Linked Data uptake
Linked Data … was meant to be the second big information revolution after the world wide web. It was supposed to complement the web of documents with the web of data so that humans and machines can use the Internet as if it is a single database while enjoying the benefits of decentralisation… Yet, Linked Enterprise Data, just like Linked Open Data, is still marginal. Why is that so? And what can be done about it?
Good questions, and Ivo Velitchkov is well-placed to provide some answers. (9 min.)
Brains are Not prediction machines
If you read Dan McCreary’s article we recently featured that was inspired by Jeff Hawkins’ A Thousand Brains, you’ll want to read this piece from John Ball (27 min.). Hawkins and Ball are not using ‘prediction’ in the same way — a good question for the next quiz! I just finished Hawkins’ book and recommend it. It’s written for a general audience.
