Semantic data extractor - QA @ W3C This tool, geared by an XSLT stylesheet, tries to extract some information from a HTML semantic rich document. It only uses information available through a good usage of the semantics defined in HTML. Detects GRRDL and RDFa.
A Prototype Knowledge Base for the Life Sciences The prototype we describe is a biomedical knowledge base, constructed for a demonstration at Banff WWW2007 , that integrates 15 distinct data sources using currently available Semantic Web technologies such as the W3C standard Web Ontology Language [OWL] and Resource Description Framework [RDF]. This report outlines which resources were integrated, how the knowledge base was constructed using free and open source triple store technology, how it can be queried using the W3C Recommended RDF query language SPARQL [SPARQL], and what resources and inferences are involved in answering complex queries. While the utility of the knowledge base is illustrated by identifying a set of genes involved in Alzheimer's Disease, the approach described here can be applied to any use case that integrates data from multiple domains.
Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest Group W3C is pleased to announce the launch of the Semantic Web Education and Outreach Interest Group, chaired by Susie Stephens (Oracle). The group is is chartered to collect proof-of-concept business cases, demonstration prototypes, etc, based on successful implementations of Semantic Web technologies, collect user experiences, develop and facilitate community outreach strategies, training and educational resources.
Re: FW: draft findings on Unsafe Methods (whenToUseGet-7) from Roy T. Fielding on 2002-04-23 I can say with authority that the W3C
was created by big businesses specifically to prevent their own marketing
departments from destroying the value inherent in the Web through their
own, and their competitors', short-sighted, quarterly-revenue-driven
pursuit of profits The only reason SOAP remains in the W3C for standardization is because
all of the other forums either rejected the concept out of hand or
refused to rubber-stamp a poor implementation of a bad idea.
A Semantic Web Primer for Object-Oriented Software Developers This note introduces Semantic Web languages such as RDF
Schema and OWL, and shows how they can be used in tandem with mainstream
object-oriented languages. We show that the Semantic Web can serve as a platform
on which domain models can be created, shared and reused.
