Keyword(s): Uncertainty reasoning; linked open data; semantic web

Abstract: Linked open data offers a set of design patterns and conventions for how to share data across the semantic web. In this position paper we enumerate the uncertainty representation and reasoning issues which apply to linked data and approaches to tackling them. We suggest the need for vocabularies to enable representation of link certainty, to handle ambiguous or imprecise values and to express sets of assumptions based on named graph combinators.
