Cambridge Semantic Web Monthly Meetup

Overview of Semantic Web

presented by Lee Feigenbaum, Co-founder Cambridge Semantics 

This 90 minute talk will present a nuts-and-bolts introduction to many of the W3C Semantic Web technologies. We will motivate the introductions with use cases and examples, and we will also attempt to dispel some of the myths and some of the hype around the Semantic Web.

The intro will cover the following technologies:

  •    RDF (data model)
  •    RDFS (schema language)
  •    OWL (ontology language)
  •    SPARQL (query language)
  •    RDFa (embedding RDF in HTML)

Please Note:

Kiva conference room at MIT Stata Ctr, 4th floor

90 minute presentation

Attendance is capped to 120.  Please RSVP if you are coming.

    I was generally aware of the Semantic Web. Lee's presentation put a framework on my understanding. I am looking forward to the Sparql presentation next month.

    Content rich by a knowledgeable presenter. He repeated the audience questions, which always helps but people seldom do.

    One of the most accessible and informative presentations I have ever attended!

    Lee Feigenbaum is a gifted teacher. His authoratative and articulate explanantion of such a potentially confusing collection of technologies was absolutely brilliant.

    Thanks, Lee and William.
