- Abstract: The Semantic Web has made huge progress in the last decade, and now comprises hundreds of knowledge bases (KBs). The Linked Open Data cloud connects the KBs in this Web of data. However, the links between the KBs are mostly concerned with the instances, not with the schema. Aligning the schemas is not easy, because the KBs may differ not just in their names for relations and classes, but also in their inherent structure. Therefore, we argue in this paper that advanced schema alignment is needed to tie the Semantic Web together. We put forward a particularly simple approach to illustrate how that might look.
