D4.5 - First Roadmapping Workshop Athens v1.1

This report summarizes the main aspects of the LIDER roadmapping workshop, held 21st March in alignment with the European Data Forum in Athens.

The workshop offered several short talks around the topics of linguistic resources available in the linked data format and their potential impact on research and industry.

We explored the advantages of promoting free, open and interoperable language resources as Linked Open Data (LOD) to lower the entry cost to innovating in the use of such resources and technologies in research and industry. We also discussed how Linguistic Linked Licensed Data open new opportunities for market-based linguistic data exchange.

The event brought together stakeholders involved in the linguistic data value chain in order to explore new use cases and business models for reusing existing and future language (open or licensed) linked data resources and platforms for the joint development and hosting of multi–language data sets and services in different types of applications such as content analytics, machine translation, sentiment analysis, term disambiguation, etc.
