Abstract

Many real world RDF collections are large compared with other real world data structures. Such large RDF collections evolve in a distributed environment. Therefore, these changes between RDF versions need to be detected and computed in order to synchronize these changes to the other users. To cope with the evolving nature of the semantic web, it is important to understand the costs and benefits of the different change detection techniques. In this paper, we experimentally provide a detailed analysis of the overall process of RDF change detection techniques namely: explicit change detection, forward-inference change detection, backward-inference change detection and backward-inference and pruning change detection. The results show that pruning is relatively expensive by comparison with inferencing.
