GIDS: Global Interlinked Data Store

Braines, Dave, Jones, Gareth, Smart, Paul R, Bao, Jie and Huynh, Trung Dong (2009) GIDS: Global Interlinked Data Store At 3rd Annual Conference of the International Technology Alliance (ACITA'09), United States. 23 - 24 Sep 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper introduces the Global Interlinked Data Store1 (GIDS), a technique to support the easy creation and retrieval of interlinked semantic data within a web-scale distributed network environment such as the World Wide Web (WWW). The GIDS enables the network to be treated as a data store without worrying about files, databases or other traditional data storage concerns. Data created on the network can be subsequently accessed and navigated by end users and software agents alike. The GIDS proposes a novel three-stage data storage process which enables the data to be stored in up to three contextually relevant locations to enhance subsequent retrieval opportunities. We believe that the capability offered by the GIDS will be of significant use to rapidly formed diverse coalitions who wish to communicate and exchange semantic data in a large network environment such as the WWW.
