linked data quality
Since the start of the Linked Open Data Cloud, we have seen an unprecedented volume of structured data published on the web, in most cases as RDF and Linked (Open) Data. The quality of these datasets can hardly be better than the original data source. We see datasets originating from crowdsourced sources like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap and highly curated sources e.g. from the library domain. Quality is of course fitness for use, thus DBpedia currently can be appropriate for a simple end-user application but could never be used in the medical domain for treatment decisions.
