Okkam - Enabling the Web of Entities (2008 - 2010)

The OKKAM project aims at enabling the Web of Entities, namely a virtual space where any collection of data and information about any type of entities (e.g. people, locations, organizations, events, products, ...) published on the Web can be integrated into a single virtual, decentralized, open knowledge base. OKKAM will contribute to this vision by supporting the convergence towards the use of a single and globally unique identifier for any entity which is named on the Web (so called OKKAM ID). LSIR contributes to the project with a distributed entity storage and indexing facility.
