W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device. Although the boundaries of the platform continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone for this platform. But the full strength of the platform relies on many more technologies that W3C and its partners are creating, including CSS, SVG, WOFF, the Semantic Web stack, XML, and a variety of APIs. W3C develops these technical specifications and guidelines through a process designed to maximize consensus about the content of a technical report, to ensure high technical and editorial quality, and to earn endorsement by W3C and the broader community. If you are learning about Web technology, you may wish to start with the introduction below, and follow links for greater detail.

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) IBM forms board to explore Watson's role in healthcare IBM has convened the Watson Healthcare Advisory Board. The panel members include medical leaders with expertise in areas such as primary care, oncology and biomedical informatics. Officials say they'll provide IBM with insights on healthcare issues that could be positively impacted by Watson.

[See also: 5 things to know about Watson's role in healthcare.] The advisory board will specifically focus on medical industry trends, clinical imperatives, regulatory considerations, privacy concerns and patient and clinician expectations around Watson technology and how it can be incorporated into clinician workflows, officials say. Charles Barnett, Ascension Health. Watson's analytical solutions and decision support systems, using deep content analysis and evidence-based reasoning and natural language processing, hold the potential for huge advances in medicine.

CSS Tutorial World Wide Web Consortium - Wikipedia The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the main international standards organization for the World Wide Web (abbreviated WWW or W3). Founded and currently led by Tim Berners-Lee,[3] the consortium is made up of member organizations which maintain full-time staff for the purpose of working together in the development of standards for the World Wide Web. As of 26 July 2017[update], the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has 476 members.[2] The W3C also engages in education and outreach, develops software and serves as an open forum for discussion about the Web. History[edit] The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was founded by Tim Berners-Lee after he left the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) in October, 1994. The organization tries to foster compatibility and agreement among industry members in the adoption of new standards defined by the W3C. In January 2013, Beihang University became the Chinese host.

HTML Tutorial untitled RDF - 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”). This linking structure forms a directed, labeled graph, where the edges represent the named link between two resources, represented by the graph nodes. Recommended Reading The RDF 1.1 specification consists of a suite of W3C Recommendations and Working Group Notes, published in 2014. A number of textbooks have been published on RDF and on Semantic Web in general. Discussions on a possible next version of RDF W3C has recently set up a new RDF Working Group, whose charter is to make a minor revision of RDF. Last modified and/or added All relevant tools
