Abstract

Serendipity is defined as the discovery of a thing when one is not searching for it. In other words, serendipity means the discovery of information that provides valuable insights by unveiling previously unknown knowledge. This paper focuses on the problem of Linked Data serendipitous search. It first discusses how to capture a set of serendipity patterns in the context of Linked Data. Then, the paper introduces a Linked Data serendipitous search application, called the Serendipity Over Linked Data Search tool – SOL-Tool. Finally, the paper describes experiments with the tool to illustrate the serendipity effect using DBpedia. The experimental results present a promissory score of 90% of unexpectedness for real-world scenarios in the music domain.
