ConceptNet | Common Sense Computing Initiative ConceptNet aims to give computers access to common-sense knowledge , the kind of information that ordinary people know but usually leave unstated. The data in ConceptNet is being collected from ordinary people who contributed it on sites like Open Mind Common Sense . ConceptNet represents this data in the form of a semantic network, and makes it available to be used in natural language processing and intelligent user interfaces. ConceptNet is an open source project, with a Python implementation and a REST API that anyone can use to add computational common sense to their own project.

XML Disadvantages XML Disadvantages The extensive markup language is the way to go for developing future web applications, and it almost defines the future of web development. There are no doubts about its performance in this arena. Lack of Applications Processing XML needs an application processing system . Other disadvantages of XML include the fact that it is more difficult, more demanding and more precise when compared to the HTML. XML as a language is very flexible, but its flexibility can potentially become one of its disadvantages, since there may be disagreement in its tags. General Weaknesses of XML Since XML is a verbose language, it is totally dependant on who is writing it. Disadvantages for XML Documents XML documents can be difficult and also expensive to setup. XML and Unicode Disadvantages While implementing programs which are multiple in number are incompatible, when XML is split between these it may really turn out into a bad thing. Comments comments
Understanding Web Technologies 07 June 2010 Posted in Project Planning & Management The following is an excerpt from our Web Designer Certification Program. If you want to become a Dev Department Certified Web Designer, you can register for free here. There is a vast range of technologies available to today's web developer, and it is very easy to become bogged down in trying to understand and accommodate sales and markets for each. Web Technologies: HTML/XHTML and CSS As previously mentioned, HTML and CSS are the technologies used to assemble a design into a functional web page. CSS allows for the very specific positioning and formatting of web page content and also allows the programmer to quickly change styles for an entire site within a single file. A style-sheet is referenced in the HEAD section of every HTML page to which it applies and several style-sheets can be referenced for each page of a site. Style-sheets use a process known as inheritance to override previously defined styles.
HTML Responsive Web XML Common Sense Computing Initiative | at the MIT Media Lab Years ago, we made a decision to put all our Python packages in a common namespace called csc . To put it simply, this did not work well. Today, we have finally undone this decision by deprecating the csc namespace and renaming every single one of our modules. Python programmers, please learn from our mistake and never make a namespace package. If you upgrade our software, you'll get more straightforward names for our modules. The new names to import are: csc.conceptnet → conceptnet csc.divisi2 → divisi2 csc.nl → simplenlp csc.util → csc_utils csc.corpus → conceptnet.corpus csc.lib → conceptnet.lib csc.django_settings → conceptnet.django_settings csc.pseudo_auth → conceptnet.pseudo_auth csc.webapi → conceptnet.webapi There's still a package called csc , and basically what it's there for is to make your old code keep working. Read on for more details, including how to update your installation.
XML Tutorial How can I learn the basics of web development and server management How does the Internet work? - HowStuffWorks Even though the Internet is still a young technology, it's hard to imagine life without it now. Every year, engineers create more devices to integrate with the Internet. This network of networks crisscrosses the globe and even extends into space. To understand the Internet, it helps to look at it as a system with two main components. Other types of hardware that support the Internet include routers, servers, cell phone towers, satellites, radios, smartphones and other devices. These elements are connections. All of this hardware wouldn't create a network without the second component of the Internet: the protocols. We'll take a closer look at protocols and how information travels across the Internet on the next page.
