Linked Open Services

Linked Open Services are a radical re-evaluation of the means to produce, describe and compose services on the Semantic Web. They harness the technologies favoured by Linked Data - RDF, SPARQL and HTTP - rather than imposing rule languages, SOAP and WSDL. Like Linked Data, and unlike traditional Semantic Web Services, they aim towards contribution to the knowledge on the Semantic Web. They are open in the sense that they are openly exposed, using only the Web as a platform, not hidden away inside closed services infrastructures. To these ends Linked Open Services are based, like Linked Data, on a simple set of principles to be explored, refined and supported in an open, community-driven manner.
