Silicon Valley Semantic Technology (SVST) Group Message Board › SDForum 7/2 event: weaving the web of data
Palo Alto, CA
The next SDForum semantic web SIG event will be on July 2nd. We'll look at the web of data movement and technologies. Here is the brief intro. please see web site for details.
Weaving the Web of Data
In the beginning it was a Web of documents. These Web pages were simple and powerful. Static, yet capable of shrinking even the furthest distances. The static Web of pages yielded to a more dynamic Web of content, and Web 2.0 style content controlled by the collective mind of the masses. But today the Web is still predominantly a Web of documents. Will the Semantic Web and other linked data languages transform the WWW into a world-wide web of data, not just pages? Will Web mashups of the future become miscellaneous bits of data easily collected from far off places? In this SDForum interactive presentation we will explore these questions and more!
Join us for two unique presentations. First we will explore how you can make use of Metaweb's Freebase free web database technology for hosting your own content, posting stuff, or making mash-ups of other people's content. Second, our presenter from TopQuadrant will provide an instructional "how-to" for getting started with RDF and just a little bit of OWL ? these two Semantic Web languages are a foundational part of the emerging data web since they were designed from the ground-up to be web-based data languages. Finally, we'll tie things together with a joint question-answer session where both speakers respond to the SD Forum audience to help everybody stay on the same page.
Our expert guests include Jamie Taylor, Minister of Information from Metaweb Technologies and Dean Allemang, Chief Scientist from TopQuadrant. AJ Chen from Healthline and Jeff Pollock from Oracle will moderate this event.
