[ANN] RapidMiner Linked Open Data Extension

Hi all,

we are happy to announce the first version of the RapidMiner Linked Open 
Data extension [1], available from the RapidMiner marketplace [2].

The extension provides access to Linked Open Data within the open source 
data mining tool RapidMiner [3]. Data from Linked Open Data can be used 
both as an input to data mining processes, as well as for enriching 
existing data mining problems with background knowledge. Possible use 
cases include:

* Importing data from a Linked Data source, such as Eurostat, into 
RapidMiner, and analyze it using RapidMiner operators
* Adding data about population, GDP, and literacy from Eurostat to a 
data set of countries
* Adding data about universities and companies to a data set of cities
* Adding data about turnover and number of employees to a data set of 

The project web site contains [1] detailed workflow examples, including 
links to myExperiment.

Any feedback is welcome! Happy mining,

Heiko, Evgeny, Petar, and Chris
