Seattle Semantic Meetup Message Board › New Meetup: Pushing SPARQL - IML, Views, Regular Express Paths, Visual , U o
Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Semantic Meetup!
Bobbin and I had the chance of meeting with and having a presentation by Jim Brinkley's group at University of Washington this afternoon. Really fabulous! So we thought of roping them into an initial presentation next week! They Agreed! So join us if your in town and invite your friends!
See you there!
What: Pushing SPARQL - IML, Views, Regular Express Paths, Visual , U of W presents!
When: Thursday, July 22, 2010 6:00 PM
Where: Microsoft at The Bravern 2
11111 Northeast 8th Street Emerald Elevator, Building 2, second floor

Abstract: The purpose of our collaborative RO1 is to develop methods for deriving application ontologies from one or more reference ontologies so that they become practical for use in real-world applications. Our general approach is based on the database notion of a view, where for an ontology the view is defined by a query over the underlying reference ontology(s), in this case using extensions that we designed for the SparQL semantic web query language. In this talk I will describe some of our progress since my last presentation to this group in May 2008, including 1) vSparQL, an implemented extension to SparQL that permits regular path expressions, sub-queries and recursive queries, 2) a demonstration of the expressiveness of vSparQL in deriving a complex neuroanatomy view from the Foundational
Model of Anatomy, 3) creation of a view from two source ontologies, 4) incorporation of materialized views into Bioportal, 5) use of views in two driving use cases: RadLex, and biosimulation model integration, and 6) ongoing and planned work in additional use cases, intermediate languages, graphical view generation, and a portal for generating and saving vSparQL queries.
Jim Brinkley is the PI of the grant that works extensively with SPARQL will give the high-level overview
Marianne Shaw is a graduating computer science PhD student working with Dan Suciu in computer science, who developed extensions to SPARQL that make it easier to create views (vSparQL)
L. Detwiler (Todd) the software developer who implemented these extensions in a usable system
Nikki Dell is a PhD student in CSE working on this grant on ontology visualization and ways to graphically specify vSparQL views building on work of former researcher Gary Yngve
