October 19, 20051 Semantic Web Slide 2 October 19, 20052 Semantic Web Part 3: Semantic Web Slide 3 October 19, 20053 Should you care? Did the World Wide Web affect you? Would you have wished you had more advanced warning, earlier implication of the change? Slide 4 October 19, 20054 Slide 5 5 Look familiar? Slide 6 October 19, 20056 WWW growth Slide 7 October 19, 20057 The Semantic Web is Comparable Not a different web, but an extension of the current one. It is essentially the addition of meaningful tags to content on the web, such that software can help us find things. Slide 8 October 19, 20058 Ill Wait Lead time Skills development Leadership Slide 9 October 19, 20059 Naysayers Cory Doctorow: Metacrap: Putting the torch to seven straw-men of the meta-utopia http://www.well.com/~doctorow/metacrap.htm Russell Glass: Is Anyone Going to Tag all this Stuff? http://zoominfo.blogs.com/soughtafter/2005/03/semantic_web_is.html Clay Shirky: The Semantic Web, Syllogism, and Worldview http://www.shirky.com/writings/semantic_syllogism.html Peter Norvig, Google: Semantic Web Ontologies: What Works and What Doesn't http://www.alwayson-network.com/comments.php?id=P7480_0_3_0_C Slide 10 October 19, 200510 Weve heard all this before In 1995 the idea that the local restaurants, the muffler shop or the bed and breakfast would have their own web site was laughable. They would need people to program HTML They would need servers, admins, etc. Slide 11 October 19, 200511 Semantic Web is already here only 642,000 documents with.rdf extension & 9,000.owl Yet 20,000,000 rdf triples are accessible (DARPA) 5,000,000 FoaFnauts Oracle 10.2 Every Adobe 6.0 + document Slide 12 October 19, 200512 Adobe 6.0 and up Slide 13 October 19, 200513 So, what is the Semantic Web? How do we know what anything is? By analogy By difference By decomposition and description of the parts By subsumption & categorization By definition Slide 14 October 19, 200514 Analogy A giant disk drive (internet) A query engine for the internet Surfing the web Slide 15 October 19, 200515 By Difference Sometimes we understand things by what they are different from. Slide 16 October 19, 200516 Horseless carriage Slide 17 October 19, 200517 Wireless telegraph Slide 18 October 19, 200518 Paperless office Slide 19 October 19, 200519 Paperless Slide 20 October 19, 200520 Human-less search interpretation Slide 21 October 19, 200521 Decomposition and description of the parts Bicycle = frame + 2 wheels + gear train + brakes + seat + handle bars Semantic Web = shared ontologies + tagged content + inference engines + service composition Slide 22 October 19, 200522 By subsumption and categorization A badger is a nocturnal [categorization] omnivore [prototypical] mammal [subsumption] The Semantic Web is a federated [prototypical] web [subsumption] with RDF tagged content [categorization] Slide 23 October 19, 200523 By definition The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners. It is based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF), which integrates a variety of applications using XML for syntax and URIs for naming.RDF W3C The Semantic Web is a project that intends to create a universal medium for information exchange by giving meaning (semantics), in a manner understandable by machines, to the content of documents on the Web. Currently under the direction of its creator, Tim Berners-Lee of the World Wide Web Consortium, the Semantic Web extends the ability of the World Wide Web through the use of standards, markup languages and related processing tools.semanticsTim Berners-LeeWorld Wide Web ConsortiumWorld Wide Webmarkup languages Wikipedia Slide 24 October 19, 200524 A closer look The power of the SW comes from a set of standards, each of which provides just a few capabilities. What follows is the essence of what is added at each level in the standards stack, starting with those we already know and love.
