zLinks: Semantic Framework for Invoking Contextual Linked Data – April 2008 – LDOW 2008 – This first-ever demonstration of the new zLinks plug-in shows how any existing Web document link can be automatically transformed into a portal to relevant Linked Data. Each existing link disambiguates to its contextual and relevant subject concept (SC) or named entity (NE). The SCs are grounded in the OpenCyc knowledge base, supplemented by aliases and WordNet synsets to aid disambiguation. The NEs are drawn from Wikipedia as processed via YAGO, and other online fact-based repositories. The UMBEL ontology basis to this framework offers significant further advantages. The zLinks popup is invoked only as desired via unobtrusive user interface cues.
