The Semantic Web In Breadth

For a high-level interview, take a look at Sandro Hawke's The Semantic Web (Put Simply). On the other hand, if you're a Web developer who's interested in building Semantic Web Sites or Semantic Web Services, check out The Semantic Web (for Web Developers). Now back to your regularly scheduled article. Identifiers: Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) If I want to discuss something, I must first identify it. To identify items on the Web, we also use identifiers. The URI is the foundation of the Web. You're probably already familiar with one form of URI: the URL or Uniform Resource Locator.

Because the Web is far too large for any one organization to control it, URIs are decentralized. This means that you don't need anyone's permission to create a URI. A common practice for creating URIs is to begin with a Web page. I just got a new pet dog. The Semantic Web, Syllogism, and Worldview.

The canonical syllogism is: Humans are mortal Greeks are human Therefore, Greeks are mortal with the third statement derived from the previous two.

C Semantic Web Activity

There is lots of data we all use every day, and it is not part of the web. I can see my bank statements on the web, and my photographs, and I can see my appointments in a calendar. But can I see my photos in a calendar to see what I was doing when I took them? Can I see bank statement lines in a calendar? Why not? SemanticWebTools - ESW Wiki.
