Title: Combining NoSQL Products to Further Enhance Semantic Technologies  

AllegroGraph is a fully ACID and highly scalable RDF triplestore that can be programmed with compiled, server side JavaScript. This allows programmers to easily manipulate individual triples and create their own intelligent graph or reasoning algorithms. However, one wish that has been expressed by many programmers is to work on the level of objects instead of individual triples, where an object would be defined as all the triples with the same subject. So we created a MongoDB interface where programmers can add, delete and modify JSON objects directly into MongoDB like sub-stores. This gives us the best of both worlds. We get the beautiful simplicity of the MongoDB interface for working with objects and we get the all the properties of an advanced triple-store, in this case joins through SPARQL queries, automatic indexing of all attributes/values, ACID properties all packaged to deliver a simple entry into the world of the Semantic Web.

Level: Intermediate/Advanced

    Speaker had many interesting things to describe, and didn't hold back from showing sample code during the presentation. Many questions asked that I was curious about, so the audience was quite involved as well. Great meetup!

    Yans did a wonderful job explaining the capabilities of mongoDB and how Allegro Graph can be optimally deployed to get performance in the "trillions of triples". The manner in which the technology was presented and the use cases were right on the mark for the audience which included the newly semantic enlightened as well as highly experienced semantic web developers. The example of how the Franz technologies can be deployed to enhance search and other analytic capabilities were very convincing. The demonstration of Amdoc's AIDA CRM solution exemplifies how a traditional products vendor can employ semantic technology to extend or in this case maintain, it's market leadership and industry perception as a thought leader. Bravo!

    Thanks again to Yan and Craig for making the trip from The West Coast.
