The Web of data, also described as a web of things in the world, described by data on the Web, is the result of the process of publishing linked data on the Web. Various tasks in publishing and maintaining linked data require human contribution at several ends. In this paper, the authors discuss the role of human intelligence in data interlinking. This justifies the necessity of incentive models, motivation mechanisms, and applying the paradigm of human computation to the interlinking process. To conclude, they give examples for using human computation for interlinking by summarizing "Games with a purpose" that address tasks in data interlinking.
