C Opens Data on the Web with SPARQL

Intro to the Semantic Web. Views Datasource. Swoogle Semantic Web Search Engine. Tim Berners-Lee Says the Time for the Semantic Web is Now - Read. In an hour long interview posted today about the Semantic Web, W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee says all the pieces are in place to move full steam ahead and realize the potential of a world of structured, machine readable data.

Tim Berners-Lee Says the Time for the Semantic Web is Now - Read

Available as a part of the Talking with Talis semantic web podcast series, the interview (listen here) is summarized on interviewer Paul Miller's new ZDNet blog dedicated to the semantic web. A full transcript is available here. It's an important conversation and a good introduction to what the semantic web is. Also notable is the way that Berners-Lee sees Semantics and Data Portability as very related. Some highlights are excerpted below. My standard explanation of the value of the Semantic Web is this: Once our software is capable of deriving meaning from web pages it looks at for us, then there's a whole lot of work that will already be done, allowing our human, creative minds to reach new heights.

On the topic of challenges still faced, Berners-Lee said: RDF-Gravity. Sunil Goyal, Rupert Westenthaler {sgoyal, rwestenthaler} Salzburg Research, Austria Download RDF Gravity RDF Gravity (v1.0): Click here to launch the online demo (~10 MB download).


Before downloading, please read the license agreement carefully. Download The demo requires Java Web Start to be installed on your machine You can download Java Web Start from here If you're using RDF Gravity for the first time, please check out the documentation page. Sample RDF files are available at - Some FOAF(Friend of a Friend) files in RDF are available at : 1) 2) OWL files 1)Camera Ontology: 2)Countries: 3)Wine Ontology: 4)Food Ontology: Note: Some ontology files (Wine & Food) might take time to load and have an improper layout after loading. For bigger ontologies, its preferred to clear the graph (display area) after loading, by clicking "Clear Graph" in the Local Filter Panel and then display the relevant parts via searching for interested resources.

IsaViz Overview

It is recommended to download IsaViz 3.0 which does work with any version of Java. An alpha release is available (see Download section), which should be as stable as IsaViz 2.1 except for the new, still under development, Fresnel and FSL features. IsaViz and GraphViz (2007-05-23) IsaViz 2.x is not compatible with GraphViz 2.10 or later. Several bugs have been fixed in the FSL engines for Jena, Sesame and the visual FSL debugger embedded in IsaViz.

Fresnel in IsaViz (2006-05-19) What Is RDF. What Is RDF by Joshua Tauberer | Pages: 1, 2, 3 Triples for Knowledge RDF provides a general, flexible method to decompose any knowledge into small pieces, called triples, with some rules about the semantics (meaning) of those pieces.

What Is RDF

The foundation is breaking knowledge down into a labeled, directed graph. Each edge in the graph represents a fact, or a relation between two things.
