The Web of linked data is built upon the idea that data items on the Web are connected by RDF (Resource Description Framework) links. Sadly, the reality on the Web shows that linked data sources set some RDF links pointing at data items in related data sources, but they clearly do not set RDF links to all data sources that provide related data. In this paper, the authors present Silk Server, an identity resolution component, which can be used within linked data application architectures to augment Web data with additional RDF links. Silk Server is designed to be used with an incoming stream of RDF instances, produced for example by a linked data crawler.
