Les ontologies et la représentation des connaissances. In my previous article, you can see here, I quickly introduced the notion of ontology, but not enough to really know what this can be.

Les ontologies et la représentation des connaissances

So we'll here see more in detail what may be an ontology with a field known as knowledge representation. I recommend before reading this article to read the previous. The representation of knowledge is a system defining a series of classes and a series of properties that connect the classes. You can also see it as an algebra: we have elements which defined operations. Additional reminder in the field of the Semantic Web, a concept is a class and a relationship corresponds to a property.

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is an open organization, incorporated in Singapore as a public, not-for-profit Company limited by Guarantee (registration number 200823602C), engaged in the development of interoperable metadata standards that support a broad range of purposes and business models.

DCMI is the maintenance organization for the vocabulary DCMI Metadata Terms. The Friend of a Friend (FOAF) Project aims at creating a Web of machine-readable pages describing people, the links between them, and the things they create and do, using an open, decentralized technology for connecting social Web sites and the people they describe. The FOAF Project is the maintenance organization for the FOAF Vocabulary. Preamble on shared goals The FOAF Vocabulary and DCMI Metadata Terms are often used together in applications, and both are consistently listed among the top vocabularies in the Linked Data space.

Open W3C-standards like SKOS provide a great chance to combine corporate information with Internet-based resources - PoolParty

Horst Baumgarten has worked for Roche for almost 25 years. He was head of Information Management at Roche Professional Diagnostics for 15 years and has become head of Scientific Information Technologies in 2010. His “mantra” is simple: “I want to support my colleagues at Roche to more easily find the needed information for their daily work”. Baumgarten is convinced, that the general data access problem can no longer be solved with the help of traditional approaches.

Instead, he started to implement semantic technologies at Roche. 20110307HabilTalk.pdf (Objet application/pdf) Community Network Blogs. After working for 2 ½ years in the research project Aletheia (see my last blog entry), I am now working in the research project CUBIST and will use this blog to inform you about this project.

So let me introduce CUBIST with its description from the CUBIST homepage. What is CUBIST about? Constantly growing amounts of data and an emerging trend of incorporating unstructured data into analytics is bringing new challenges to Business Intelligence (BI). Contemporary BI solutions fall short in the following aspects: First, they focus only on structured data and disregard the increasing amount of information hidden in unstructured data. Secondly, BI users dealing with increasingly complex analyses, but the complexity of BI tools becomes the biggest barrier to their success. Adresses URI sympas pour le Web sémantique.

Web 3.0: Powering Startups to Become Smartups

Web 2.0), then you are not thinking outside of the box anymore. The Web is constantly evolving: innovating and implementing new technologies; adapting in a more timely manner to user feedback and needs; redefining the roles of business partners; and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. This is the first article in my four-part series about powering startups to become smartups. You can find the timeline for future installments of my series at the end of this article. If you’re still beating the Web 2.0 drum then you are not thinking outside the box. An Introduction to Linked Data. Seth Grimes's Tweet on the Sandro Hawke's video presentation caught my attention.

An Introduction to Linked Data

The presentation, entitled An Introduction to Linked Data, was recorded in June 8, 2010 at the Cambridge Semantic Web Gathering, occurred at Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) in Cambridge, MA. Sandro works at World Wide Web Consortium, an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. From a Summary: "Although the first Semantic Web standards are more than ten years old, only recently have we begun to actually see machines sharing data on the Web. The key turning point was the acceptance of the core Linked Data principle, that object identifiers should also work with Web protocols to access useful information.

This talk will cover the basic concepts and techniques of publishing and using Linked Data, assuming some familiarity with programming and the Web. SKOS and OWL 2 are Now Interoperable. In tech news, SKOS has been altered to interoperate with OWL 2.

SKOS and OWL 2 are Now Interoperable

Up until now the two vocabularies haven’t been able to “play together nicely,” but thanks to a few simple tweaks to SKOS, they are now able to operate together smoothly. According to the article, “In the semantic Web, arguably SKOS is the right vocabulary for representing simple knowledge structures, and OWL 2 is the right language for asserting axioms and ontological relationships. In the early days we chose a reliance on SKOS for the UMBEL reference concept ontology, because of UMBEL’s natural role as a knowledge structure.” Simple changes to SKOS, fully explained in the article, have bridged the gap: “For UMBEL, and we think other vocabularies, the transition to OWL 2 is important for many reasons, including the ‘punning’ of individuals and classes.

Open LIDS (Linked Data Services) Implementing SPARQL 1.1 Query - first findings. I am currently in the middle of implementing SPARQL 1.1 Query Language into Sesame 2 (code can be found in Sesame's subversion repository, branch 2.4).

Implementing SPARQL 1.1 Query - first findings

The current working draft specifies a number of new features for SPARQL, and I will briefly make some points about the features I have implemented thus far, noting problems I encountered or where the current working draft was unclear to me. 1. Expressions in SELECT This new feature was fairly straightforward to implement, mainly as Sesame already had support for it in its query algebra. I only needed to adapt the parser. SPIN - SPARQL Inferencing Notation.

SPIN - SPARQL Syntax. Abstract This document describes the SPIN SPARQL Syntax, an RDF representation of the semantic web query language SPARQL.

SPIN - SPARQL Syntax

The SPIN SPARQL Syntax provides an alternative representation of SPARQL queries that goes beyond the textual format. The main benefit of this syntax is that it makes it possible to consistently store SPARQL queries together with the domain model. All resources from the domain model are represented as proper RDF resource references instead of only having them as strings. Having a triple-based SPARQL representation makes it easier to maintain hybrid models in which RDF/OWL definitions are mixed with SPARQL expressions.

Un catalyseur pour le web de données Datalift porte les données brutes structurées venant de plusieurs formats (bases de données, CSV, XML,GML, shapefile, ...) vers des données sémantiques interconnectées sur le Web de données. Le projet de recherche expérimentale Datalift a été supporté par l'agence nationale de la recherche. Aujourd'hui, le but du projet est atteint : développer une plateforme pour publier et interconnecter des jeux de données sur le web de données. Datalift à la fois publie des jeux de données provenant d'un réseau de partenaires et propose un ensemble d'outils facilitant le processus de publication de jeux de données.

Semantic Web Database Platform. Semantic data extractor - QA @ W3C. Does Linked Data need RDF ? Before going any further, let’s get a few things crystal clear; The recent success of the Linked Data meme is long overdue, very welcome, and entirely capable of carrying the Web of Data far beyond its current niche adherents. A lot of my current work involves arguing that more organisations should adopt this approach;The Resource Description Framework, RDF, is a key — and powerful — piece in W3C‘s Semantic Web Architecture.

Since its earliest days, I have played various parts in advocating the potential of RDF and will continue to do so;RDF is an obvious means of publishing — and consuming — Linked Data powerfully, flexibly, and interoperably. I will continue to argue this, and to advocate its wider adoption. Fourre-tout personnel virtuel de Got. RealTimeSemanticWeb (rtsw)
