Demonstrating The Entity Registry System: Implementing 5-Star Linked Data Without the Web

Marat Charlaganov, Philippe Cudré-Mauroux, Christian Dinu, Christophe Guéret, Martin Grund and Teodor Macicas
Linked Data applications often assume that connectivity to data repositories and entity resolution services are always available. This may not be a valid assumption in many cases. Indeed, there are about 4.5 billion people in the world who have no or limited Web access. Many data-driven applications may have a critical impact on the life of those people, but are inaccessible to such populations due to the architecture of today's data registries. In this demonstration, we show how our new open-source ERS system can be used as a general-purpose entity registry suitable for deployment in poorly-connected or ad-hoc environments.
