dajobe: I'm going to www2005 (Tokyo), time to think of things to do
dajobe: sparql demo things? rdf, xml and joining with sparql? YA-redland thing?
jsled: Overview coverage of semweb, Semantic Technology Conference
jsled: Yes, indeed, this is a repost.
jsled: [from Mar 9th]
jsled: /me fades into the background.
danbri: Reports on a recent lecture by Nigel Shadbolt.
danbri: "Imagine clicking on a low point on an oil production graph to launch a web search that threw up only strictly relevant information including news stories about the Iraq war and reports on everything from international economy to effects on wildlife. This is a far cry from searching for ‘oil’ and getting hits ranging from car engines to massage services..."
danbri: "...and it is already reality among researchers developing what is known as the semantic web."
danbri: Nice usage scenario. Aside: searching swoogle for "oil" also finds stuff about Ontology Inference Layer.
