Abstract / Description

Linked Data is one of the emerging ways to publish and link structured and machine-processable data on the Web, however, the existing techniques to perform live query Linked Data are based on recursive URI look-up process. These techniques contain a limitation for the query patterns having subject unbound and object containing a foreign URI. In such cases, the live query does not produce any answers to the query as the querying process could not be initiated due to unavailability of subject field in the triple pattern. In this paper, we make use of backlinking to extract and store foreign URIs and using this information for executing the queries live where the subject is unbound.
