Venue: SIC 301, 'C' Block, 03rd Floor, KReSIT
ABSTRACT: The "Semantic Web" has been riding up the hype curve for the past couple of years. In this talk, we will seek to demystify this hype by introducing you to the basic ideas and technologies behind the semantic web (ontologies, RDF/S, OWL). In information systems, ontologies are explicit formal specifications of a domain's concepts, objects, and relations. Ontologies provide both a model of information to be represented and a vocabulary to use in describing it. The semantic web languages RDF and OWL have been developed and standardized by the W3C to allow data and knowledge to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. We will also show how the semantic web technologies are being used to build distributed systems, especially distributed information systems.
