The availability of large volumes of Semantic Web data has created the potential of discovering vast amount of knowledge, among which semantic relation discovery fundamentally changes the way the authors acquire and use knowledge. Due to the decentralized and distributed nature of Semantic Web development, semantic data tend to be created and stored independently in different organizations; under such circumstances, the full exposition of the Semantic Web data faces numerous challenges such as usability, scalability, and heterogeneity. This paper proposes an effective strategy to discover semantic relationships over large-scale distributed systems such as peer-to-peer and grid network, which allows users to share their local knowledge to collectively make new discoveries.
