Michael Gorriz, CIO Daimler - Semantic website

Daimler manufacturing companies are facing increasing digitization of their products and processes

Computer aided design, need embrace this change

Open standards for data integration - standards (from w3c) are important

From networked computer to linked data

Uri, http,  use unique identifiers, include links to other identifiers so people can learn more, 

Linked data activities in daimler: mercedes benz website:  PoC - factual search, content processes, user experience- extractions of vehicle concepts and attributes from existing data, availability of vehicle concepts using search field

Technological and cultural changes together:

  • LD saves resources, lean technology, is sustainable, reliable w3c
  • Linked data is flexible and application neutral it can be use in various domain
  • LD drives cultural change of the Enterprise
  • building trust and reduce fear of data transparency

Mobile subscriptions 2018 9,3bn 

People expect live coverage of events service creators not only service enablers

Experience of user is critical factor for success

Open api

Today energy centered networks

Future distributed and participative market:

  • example: in Bayern, on one sunny day, 50% of energy came from solar - this caused problems for the grid which was build for old "unidirectional power generation" model

New market participants are prosumers, aggregators mobility service operators.

new approach to trust and security:

  • strategy shifted from prevention of abuse to mitigation of results of abuse

Malte Beyer-Katzenberger, DG CONNECT - The legal framework of the data value chain

EU's open data policy in hash tags, roughly:

  • #opendata
  • #ogd
  • #psi
  • #openaccess

resuse: if you allow it for one in EU, you have to allow it for any other in EU

Open Data is covered by one directive (PSI), but privacy is covered by other, older one and is referenced by PSI => when reusing Open Data, we need to follow also privacy directive

example for reuse: Norwegian Meteorological Institute is charging 0€ for data

A look at how and where the PostgreSQL advanced open source database is being used in European science and industry, for both big and small data, with discussion of how things are changing over time. Talk includes a look at the various requirements big data imposes for various use cases and how we currently cope  with these challenges. We also discuss the AXLE project and its impact and importance in various industries.

Delivering on Standards for Government Linked Data - A W3C Working Group Report


Three years ago, several pioneering members of the data transparency effort looked to the Web’s standards organization, the W3C, to help charter a working group to provide standards and other information to help governments around the world publish their data as effective and usable Linked Data. The

Government Linked Data working group, a part of the eGovernment Activity and closely connected with the Semantic Web Activity, has collected and is making available information about government Linked Data activities around the world. It has used that information and the experience of its participants to develop W3C  Recommendations for Best Practices and for RDF Vocabularies necessary for publication of government data as Linked Data.

The W3C Government Linked Data working group is comprised of over 60 group participants, of which more than 20 are active members who meet weekly and are predominantly from Europe. A third of the members are from commercial firms, a third from research / academic institutions and the balance from federal, central government and non-profit organizations (see: Collectively, the members are involved in government open data projects publishing content of global relevance.

This presentation will highlight the progress of this working group as the charter draws to a close in May 2013. We’ll describe:


The progress of the W3C Government Linked Data working group to date;

Highlight the Community Directory, Best Practices and Standard Vocabularies; and

Describe first steps that government authorities can take to start publishing 4 and 5star linked data to the Web of Data.
