+      <li>Adding machine-readable information to web pages using for example

+      paintings could be enriched by linking them to the corresponding artists in <a href="">Wikidata</a>, 
+      therefore giving access to a wide range of information about them and related resources.</li>
+      <li>Interlinking API feeds, making sure that clients can easily discover how to access more information.</li>
+      <li>Using the datasets currently published as Linked Data [[LINKED-DATA]], for example
+      building aggregations of data around specific topics.</li>
+      <li>Building distributed social networks by interlinking RDF descriptions of people
+      across multiple web sites.</li>
+      <li>Providing a standard-compliant way for exchanging data between graph databases.</li>
+      <li>Interlinking various datasets within an organisation, enabling cross-dataset queries to
+      be performed using SPARQL [[RDF-SPARQL-QUERY]].</li>
