The Linked Data Strategy for Global Identity
March-April 2012 (vol. 16 no. 2)
pp. 68-71
Hugh Glaser, Seme4
Harry Halpin, World Wide Web Consortium

The Web's promise for planet-scale data integration depends on solving the thorny problem of identity: given one or more possible identifiers, how can we determine whether they refer to the same or different things? Here, the authors discuss various ways to deal with the identity problem in the context of linked data.
