Streamed Linked Data
Many (semi-)structured data sources, especially from the social domain (such as news feeds, etc.) can be understood as linked data. We investigate the requirements and use cases of streamed linked data in this theme.
Data streams are nowadays found in many guises: news feeds such as RSS or Atom, stock market information in proprietary format, data from ActiveRFID chips, and so on. We are slowly learning how to deal with large-scale data volumes, how to process, search and reason with them. What is currently missing is an approach for treating virtually any kind if data stream in a uniform way, enabling to build applications out-of-the-box.

We are currently working on a white-paper that collects requirements regarding streamed linked data, highlighting research issues and providing a road-map for the next couple of years.
