The current implementation assumes basic Linked Data Fragments, but we'll eventually extend that to many other types of fragments (yet performance will highly depend on what kind of fragments are available).
Public SPARQL endpoints are indeed not the way to provide reliable access to data.
I believe in live querying of publicly available data sources on the Web, just like people can browse websites for the information they need. That's why we designed the the Triple Pattern Fragments API, which enables clients to execute queries on live data: http://client.linkeddatafragments.org/.

Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of interacting with machines in a more natural way than we currently do. Most people will agree machines are difficult sometimes.
Wouldn't it be great if a computer could understand what we want, instead ofus having to explain our desires to a computer (in the way the computer wants it)?
In the Semantic Web vision, automated agents browse the Web for us—much like we do it ourselves these days. However, there is still a long way to go…
Yet, I believe things are heading in the right direction, and I want to be part of it.
This is why I'm pursuing a PhD degree at Multimedia Lab, a research group of iMindsand Ghent University. My interests include the Semantic Web, hypermedia APIs, Web services, adaptive hypermedia, and more.
