Watson Semantic Web Search This is the Watson Web interface for searching ontologies and semantic documents using keywords. This interface is subject to frequent evolutions and improvements. If you want to share your opinion, suggest improvement or comment on the results, don't hesitate to contact us... At the moment, you can enter a set of keywords (e.g. "cat dog old_lady"), and obtain a list of URIs of semantic documents in which the keywords appear as identifiers or in literals of classes, properties, and individuals. You can also use "jokers" in the keywords (e.g., "ca?

Making Data Social The Socrata Open Data API (SODA) allows software developers to access data hosted in Socrata data sites programmatically. Developers can create applications that use the SODA APIs to visualize and “mash-up” Socrata datasets in new and exciting ways. Create an iPhone application that visualizes government spending in your area, a web application that allows citizens to look up potential government benefits they'd overlooked, or a service that automatically emails you when new earmarks are added to bills that you wish to track. To start accessing this dataset programmatically, use the API endpoint provided below.

What is the Semantic Web really all about? - Web Science - the World of the World Wide Web Blog The Semantic Web is based on the relatively straightforward idea that to be able to integrate (link) data on the Web we must have some mechanism for knowing what relationships hold among the data, and how that relates to some “real world” context. The following is a lot of detail that comes from this simple idea. To answer this question properly, let me start back in the early Web era. While I’m going to do some potentially boring personal history, I’ll note the key ideas as I go along. Circa 1995, my research group began playing with an idea (first proposed by my then student Sean Luke now a faculty member at GMU) that if web markup (it was all HTML back then) contained some machine readable “hints” to the computer, then we could do a better job of Web tasks like search, query, and faceted browsing. “Linked Data” (or “Web of Data”) – close to the original vision.

Open Repositories Repositories increasingly play a pivotal role in the emerging information landscape. Through a format that blends open user group meetings for DSpace, Fedora, and Eprints, followed by general conference sessions that cover cross-cutting and overarching issues, Open Repositories attempts to create opportunities to explore the challenges faced by user communities and others in today’s world. The many repository platforms available today are changing the nature of scholarly communication. Institutions such as universities, research laboratories, publishers, libraries, and commercial organizations are creating innovative repository-based systems that address the entire lifecycle of information — from supporting the creation and management of digital content, to enabling use, re-use, and interconnection of information, to ultimately ensuring long-term preservation and archiving.

How British do you feel? Visualised Visualising data online and in a newspaper is like the difference between speaking Spanish and conversing in French; there have the same roots and are ostensibly similar - but in practice are completely different. So it's proven with the results of our online Britishness survey, where we asked readers to rate how they felt about their nationality. The results provide a fascinating insight into how different parts of the UK really feel about the nation as a whole. Online, it works just like a Google map - where you can zoom in and see how people feel in each place, ranked by the maps of each country.

Linked Data and URI:s for Enterprises: Mind maps just begging for RDF triples and formal models Earlier this week CDISC English Speaking User Group (ESUG) Committee arranged a webinar: "CDISC SHARE - How SHARE is developing as a project/standard” with Simon Bishop, Standards and Operations Director, GSK. I did find the comprehensive presentation from Simon, and his colleuage Diane Wold, very interesting. Interesting as the presentation in an excellent way exemplifies how "Current standards (company standards, SDTM standards, other standards) do not current deliver the capability we require" Also, I do find the presentation interesting as it exemplifies mind maps as a way forward as "Diagrams help us understand clinical processes and how this translates into datasets and variables." (Quotes from slide 20 in the presentation: Conclusions.) Below a couple of examples of mind maps from the presentation.

List of academic databases and search engines the general list of search engines for all-purpose search engines that can be used for academic purposesbibliographic databases for information about databases giving bibliographic information about finding books and journal articles. Note that "free" or "subscription" can refer both to the availability of the database or of the journal articles included. This has been indicated as precisely as possible in the lists below.

Open Repository Blog : ALA Midwinter 2012 BioMed Central’s Open Repository recently exhibited at the ALA Midwinter Conference in Dallas. Warm and sunny, it was a great change of scenery with excellent food! In a climate of stretched budgets, attendance at the conference seemed low. However it was great that our representatives: Bob Schatz and Nish Thiru were kept very busy at the booth. It was also fantastic to see the support of open access from the attendees and for us to provide an opportunity to inform them about how Open Repository’s hosted solution could help them meet their green, open access needs. Bob Schatz presented a very well-received workshop entitled Institutional Repositories and the Open Repository Solution.
