The Human Face of the Web of Data: A Cross-sectional Study of Label

Labels in the Web of Data are the key element for humans to access the data.

We gain an insight into the current state of labels and multilinguality on the web of data. We analyze the datasets based on a set of metrics including completeness, unambiguity, multilinguality, labeled object usage, and monolingual islands.
