An Entity Name System for Linking Semantic Web Data(About) The Semantic Web should provide a global space for the seamless integration of small knowledge bases (or local “semantic webs”)
into a global, open, decentralized and scalable knowledge
In this paper, we will try to defend the view that the practical realization of the grand vision of the Semantic Web as
a huge graph of interlinked data would be much easier and
faster if we could count on a service which, by analogy with
the DNS, we call an Entity Name System (ENS), namely a
service which stores and makes available for reuse URIs for
any type of entity in a fully decentralized and open knowledge publication space.
