Description

The Web of Data allows for sharing of knowledge and information across different domains. However, the target for linked data sources and applications based on those sources has been mostly in the developed world. In developing rural areas such as sub-Sahel Africa, there also is a need for knowledge sharing and re-use. One of the most important opportunities to apply the Web for these areas are market information systems. In this project, we investigate a) how market information from developing areas can be represented as linked data and show why this is a good fit and b) develop (voice-based) applications and services on top of this data.
