On-the-fly Integration of Static and Dynamic Sources
Buchtitel: Proceedings of the ISWC 2013 workshop on Consuming Linked Data
The relevance of many types of data perishes or degrades over time; to support timely decision-making, data integration systems have to provide access to live data. In addition, data integration systems may need to be extended to include new sources quickly and in a flexible manner. We outline methods, based on web architecture, to achieve (near) real-time access to a variety of data sources in a range of data formats and access modalities. We further show how to rapidly integrate hitherto unaccessible sources via modeling the sources based on a domain ontology, and to use these models to generate a Linked Data interface to live sources. Finally, we present initial experimental results of a scenario involving several static and dynamic sources from the web.
