untitled Part I. Getting Started Chapter 1. 5 Graph Databases to Consider Of the major categories of NoSQL databases - document-oriented databases, key-value stores and graph databases - we've given the least attention to graph databases on this blog. That's a shame, because as many have pointed out it may become the most significant category. Graph databases apply graph theory to the storage of information about the relationships between entries. RDFa Primer We begin the introduction to RDFa by using a subset of all the possibilities called RDFa Lite 1.1 [rdfa-lite]. The goal, when defining that subset, was to define a set of possibilities that can be applied to most simple to moderate structured data markup tasks, without burdening the authors with additional complexities. Many Web authors will not need to use more than this minimal subset. 2.1.1 The First Steps: Adding Machine-Readable Hints to Web Pages

Developers Guide to Semantic Web Toolkits for different Programming Languages Abstract This guide collects links to Semantic Web toolkits for different programming languages and gives an overview about the features of each toolkit, the strength of the development effort and the toolkit's user community. Table of Contents This guide collects links to Semantic Web toolkits for different programming languages.

BigOWLIM Installation - OWLIM35 - Ontotext Wiki This section is for users and system administrators that are unfamiliar with the BigOWLIM semantic repository software. The information contained in the following pages should be enough to get started with BigOWLIM, i.e. to install and configure the software so that repository instances can be created and used. BigOWLIM is packaged as a Storage and Inference Layer (SAIL) for the Sesame RDF framework. BigOWLIM can be used in two different ways: One approach is to integrate it in an application using it as a library. An example of doing this is given in the 'getting-started' folder of the BigOWLIM distribution zip file.

Mereology Mereology has been axiomatized in various ways as applications of predicate logic to formal ontology, of which mereology is an important part. A common element of such axiomatizations is the assumption, shared with inclusion, that the part-whole relation orders its universe, meaning that everything is a part of itself (reflexivity), that a part of a part of a whole is itself a part of that whole (transitivity), and that two distinct entities cannot each be a part of the other (antisymmetry). A variant of this axiomatization denies that anything is ever part of itself (irreflexive) while accepting transitivity, from which antisymmetry follows automatically. Standard university texts on logic and mathematics are silent about mereology, which has undoubtedly contributed to its obscurity.

Which freaking database should I use? August 02, 2012 Follow @acoliver I've been in Chicago for the last few weeks setting up our first satellite office for my company. While Silicon Valley may be the home of big data vendors, Chicago is the home of the big data users and practitioners. So many people here "get it" that you could go to a packed meetup or big data event nearly every day of the week. Planning a Semantic Web site This article discusses what you need to know to make your Web site part of the Semantic Web. It starts with a discussion of the problems the Semantic Web tries to solve and then moves to the technologies involved, such as Resource Description Framework (RDF), Web Ontology Language (OWL), and SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language (SPARQL). You'll see how the Semantic Web is layered on top of the existing Web.
