    • KEYNOTE: The Game Changer: Siri, a Virtual Personal Assistant


      from Semantic Web Added 52K 88 6

      We are beginning to see a new interaction paradigm for the web: the Virtual Personal Assistant (VPA). A VPA is task focused: it helps you get things done. You interact with it in natural language, in a conversation. It gets to know you, acts on your behalf, and gets better with time. The VPA paradigm builds on the information and services of the web, with new technical challenges of semantic intent understanding, context awareness, service delegation, and mass personalization. Siri is a virtual personal assistant for the mobile Internet. Although just in its infancy, Siri can help with some common tasks that human assistants do, such as booking a restaurant, getting tickets to a show, and inviting a friend. We will describe the technology underlying Siri and how it fits in the larger ecosystem of services and data providers. And we will offer a vision of where assistants like Siri are going.

            • SPINMap: SPARQL-based Ontology Mapping


              from Holger Knublauch Added 2,480 4 0

              This video tutorial introduces SPINMap, a SPARQL-based mapping language to describe transformations between two RDF or OWL ontologies. SPINMap is using SPIN templates and functions as a declarative mapping modeling language. These mappings can be edited either graphically or directly on RDF level. SPINMap models can be edited with TopBraid Composer SE, but executed with TBC Free Edition or the open source SPIN API. The presentation is given by Holger Knublauch, with apologies for his thick German accent.

                from Marco Neumann Added 1,903 26 1

                Sandro Hawke, June 8, 2010 - MIT Cambridge, MA World Wide Web Consortium http://www.w3.org Although the first Semantic Web standards are more than ten years old, only recently have we begun to actually see machines sharing data on the Web. The key turning point was the acceptance of the core Linked Data principle, that object identifiers should also work with Web protocols to access useful information. This talk will cover the basic concepts and techniques of publishing and using Linked Data, assuming some familiarity with programming and the Web. No prior knowledge of Semantic Web technologies is required. Slides: http://files.meetup.com/1336198/LinkedDataPresentation-SandroHawke.pdf

                  from Maarten Added 1,609 11 0

                  A 5 minute video with Nova Spivack. In the interview he talks about the semantic web (putting meta data into data), the web is the database (linked data) and that Facebook will become a search engine. In ten years he expects reasoning will be online. Not Artificial Intelligence but assisting agents. He doesn't believe in AI. Nova Spivack is an entrepreneur, semantic web pioneer, and technology visionary. He founded among other: EarthWeb in 1994 and Radar Networks in 2003. He is the grandson of Peter Drucker. Twine, his first semantic web product is out in beta from Radar Networks.

                    from Jeffrey Penka Added 1,223 0 0

                    Is Your Library Ready for Linked Data and BIBFRAME? Watch this video to learn more about Zepheira's new online training curriculum, designed to help your whole library team prepare for an exciting set of opportunities to better meet your audiences when and where they need you. Library relevance on the Web begins with visibility, Linked Data and BIBFRAME will play a key role in the Web understanding libraries and reflecting what libraries have to offer. Through Zepheira’s work with hundreds of librarians, we found a need for a clear baseline of knowledge and awareness about where to begin on this path to relevance and visibility. Building on our experience over the last twenty years and our leadership role in shaping the Web, Linked Data, and BIBFRAME, we have developed a experience-driven training series focused on libraries, their data, their audiences, and their local needs.
