A research collaboration is underway between the information and communications technology giant Fujitsu and the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) at NUI Galway. It could very well change the way we look at linked data. Silicon Republic brought this news to us in their article, “Semantic web breakthrough could make sense of big data faster.”

There is potential for researchers and organizations to unlock open data sets of massive numbers and merge them with their own data. This will enable them to gain new insights into everything from financial information to healthcare breakthroughs.

The current challenge is that the data sets are located in various places and not together. This semantic web breakthrough could make sense of big data faster and better, which could only be a good thing.
