Re: [ANN] SView: a Web-based system for browsing Linked Data

Hi there,
This looks good.
But it doesn¡¯t seem to be fetching quite a lot of Linked Data.
I can get the ones on the home page, and I found
all give "RDF description not found¡±.
As far as I can verify, these three all do Conneg for Accept:application/rdf+xml

Also, would you like to integrate with, or some other sameAs services?

Users can sort, remove and add properties of the visited entity to form a better view of the concerned entity. Each user's viewpoint on property sorting is collected and then turned into a consensus sorting. The consensus sorting on involved properties is shared among all users.

Each user's viewpoint on entity coreference resolution is learned from the user's interaction, and all users' viewpoints are aggregated and then shared among all users.

It is under consideration that whether or not the SView should become an open platform that receives ¡°plug-ins¡± (e.g. views, navigators) from the developer community.
