EDSA Online Courses

The European Data Science Academy (EDSA) will establish a virtuous learning production cycle whereby we: a) analyse the required sector specific skillsets for data analysts across the main industrial sectors in Europe; b) develop modular and adaptable data science curricula to meet these needs; and c) deliver training supported by multi-platform and multilingual learning resources based on our curricula. The curricula and learning resources will be continuously evaluated by pedagogical and data science experts during both development and deployment.

Euclid Project Learning Resources

EUCLID Logo
Using Linked Data Effectively - Book cover

EUCLID is a European research project, facilitating professional training for data practitioners, who aim to use Linked Data in their daily work. EUCLID delivers a curriculum implemented as a combination of living learning materials and activities (eBook series, webinars, face‐to‐face training), validated by the user community through continuous feedback.

Euclid Project Modules

This module introduces the main principles of Linked Data, the underlying technologies and background standards. It provides basic knowledge for how data can be published over the Web, how it can be queried, and what are the possible use cases and benefits. As an example, we use the development of a music portal (based on the MusicBrainz dataset), which facilitates access to a wide range of information and multimedia resources relating to music. The module also includes some multiple choice questions in the form of a quiz, screencasts of popular tools and embedded videos.

EUCLID Module 2: Querying Linked Data

This module looks in detail at SPARQL (SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language) and introduces approaches for querying and updating semantic data. It covers the SPARQL algebra, the SPARQL protocol, and provides examples for reasoning over Linked Data. The module uses examples from the music domain, which can be directly tried out and ran over the MusicBrainz dataset. This includes gaining some familiarity with the RDFS and OWL languages, which allow developers to formulate generic and conceptual knowledge that can be exploited by automatic reasoning services in order to enhance the power of querying.

EUCLID Module 3: Providing Linked Data

This module covers the whole spectrum of Linked Data production and exposure. After a grounding in the Linked Data principles and best practices, with special emphasis on the VoID vocabulary, we cover R2RML, operating on relational databases, Open Refine, operating on spreadsheets, and GATECloud, operating on natural language. Finally we describe the means to increase interlinkage between datasets, especially the use of tools like Silk.

This module focuses on providing means for exploring Linked Data. In particular, it gives an overview of current visualization tools and techniques, looking at semantic browsers and applications for presenting the data to the end used. We also describe existing search options, including faceted search, concept-based search and hybrid search, based on a mix of using semantic information and text processing. Finally, we conclude with approaches for Linked Data analysis, describing how available data can be synthesized and processed in order to draw conclusions. The module includes a number of practical examples with available tools as well as an extensive demo based on analyzing, visualizing and searching data from the music domain.

This module gives details on technologies and approaches towards exploiting Linked Data by building LD applications. In particular, it gives an overview of popular existing applications and introduces the main technologies that support implementation and development. Furthermore, it illustrates how data exposed through common Web APIs can be integrated with Linked Data in order to create mashups.

EUCLID Module 6: Scaling up

This module addresses the main issues of Linked Data and scalability. In particular, it provides gives details on approaches and technologies for clustering, distributing, sharing, and caching data. Furthermore, it addresses the means for publishing data trough could deployment and the relationship between Big Data and Linked Data, exploring how some of the solutions can be transferred in the context of Linked Data.
