What Does it Mean for a URI to Resolve?

Book Title: Proceedings of the AAAI Spring Symposium on Linked Data Meets Artificial Intelligence

Abstract: Amongst the best practices that constitute Linked Data, one of the foremost is to use only HTTP-URIs as identifiers for RDF resources. This is so that the URI will resolve in a Linked Data browser to give information about the named resource.

At the same time, Linked Data takes a resource-centric, as opposed to page-centric, approach to resolution. We argue that this approach can, in certain cases, obviate the need for insisting on HTTP-URIs. As a use of our “expanded” notion of Linked Data, we present as an example Life Science Identifiers.
