Tool voidGen released

As part of our winning submission at the 2010 Billion Triple Challenge at the International Semantic Web Conference, we developed several algorithms to facilitate automatic creation of VoID (Vocabulary of Interlinked Data) descriptions for Web-scale Linked Data.

We have now officially released a tool called "voidGen" that bundles these algorithms and provides a user-friendly interface to generate VoID metadata using an Apache Hadoop Cluster (hosted either locally or in the Amazon Compute Cloud EC2).

Details about our submission and the tool can be found here.
