The Semantic Web Technology Stack: Modeling Information with RDF

Themen: XML, RDF, RDFS, OWL, Data modeling.
Speaker: Dr. Morton Swimmer, Trend Micro, GmbH
Abstract: The talk is an introduction to modeling data in RDF, the Semantic Web language for describing resources on the World Wide Web. Starting from syntax-oriented XML language we will explore what shortcomings it had in information representation and how RDF was proposed to alleviate these issues. We start with the basics: what is a triple, and how these form graphs to model complicated knowledge. As foreshadowing to a future presentation, I will also briefly cover queries to RDF graphs, and how RDFS and OWL make RDF data far more useful than conventional representations.

    Excellent! Pretty basic, but very nice especially since it was my first Meetup I needed a refresher.

    I really liked the Meetup, thanks to everyone who attended and especially Morton! Also, If you'd like to give one more, that would be very welcome! ;) (Maybe vocabularies & ontologies?)
