Semantic Web | charter | semantic-web | #swig weblog | ESW Wiki | planetrdf weblogs This is the homepage of W3C's Semantic Web Interest Group (SWIG), previously known as the RDF Interest Group . It provides a public forum to discuss the use and development of the Semantic Web . See the group's charter for details of its role and purpose. The Semantic Web Interest Group is designed as a forum to support developers and users of Semantic Web technologies ( RDF , OWL , SPARQL , etc). The group in particular serves to help developers create vocabularies and applications to support a Web data marketplace combining harvesting, syndication, metadata and Web Service techniques.
Posted: March 6th, 2013 | No Comments » Brain-computer interactions is a pet topic I investigate on the side for quite some time; actually since I was an undegrad in Cognitive Sciences back fifteen years ago. In the last ten years, we saw an interesting evolution in terms of hardware possibilities with the advent of headcaps… this led to a novel situation where prototyping interaction was less cumbersome as it used to be. Plus, the availability of software (games, relaxation apps, etc.) also allows to conduct tests and observe the usage of such devices out of the lab. This is a dimension I’m interested in as wearing these devices in public is not neutral (even more than Google glasses?)
From W3C Wiki News 2012-03-25: The accepted papers of the 5th Linked Data on the Web Workshop (LDOW2012) are online now.
6 September 2007 : W3C Launches the OWL Working Group . A. OWL is a Web Ontology language.
From Semantic Web Standards Overview RDF is a standard model for data interchange on the Web. RDF has features that facilitate data merging even if the underlying schemas differ, and it specifically supports the evolution of schemas over time without requiring all the data consumers to be changed. RDF extends the linking structure of the Web to use URIs to name the relationship between things as well as the two ends of the link (this is usually referred to as a “triple”). Using this simple model, it allows structured and semi-structured data to be mixed, exposed, and shared across different applications.
Many believe the web has entered a second phase, where new services and software - collectively known as web 2.0 - are transforming the web from a predominantly "read only" medium to one where anyone can publish and share content and easily collaborate with others. The "new" web is already having an impact in class, as teachers start exploring the potential of blogs, media-sharing services, and other social software, which, although not designed specifically for e-learning, can be used to empower students and create exciting new learning opportunities. These same tools allow teachers to share and discuss innovations more easily and, in turn, spread good practice.

Up to Design Issues An RDF language for the Semantic Web This article gives an operational semantics for Notation3 (N3) and some RDF properties for expressing logic. These properties, together with N3's extensions of RDF to include variables and nested graphs, allow N3 to be used to express rules in a web environment. This is an informal semantics in that should be understandable by a human being but is not a machine readable formal semantics. This document is aimed at a logician wanting to a reference by which to compare N3 Logic with other languages, and at the engineer coding an implementation of N3 Logic and who wants to check the detailed semantics.

The Tabulator project is a generic data browser and editor. Using outline and table modes, it provides a way to browse RDF data on the web. RDF is the standard for inter-application data exchange. You can use it in two ways
