karlUshi: Is there a commented example? (more explanations)
crschmidt: Now commented, although it didn't really seem that difficult to me, so I'm not sure what comments are needed
karlcow: RDF Templates work in a similar fashion to XSLT. However, instead of acting upon an XML document, an RDF Template acts on an RDF graph.
chimezie: Hmm.. has some eeiry similarities to Versa (and GraphPath). Not so ironic considering Versa takes the path-based approach to isolating nodes in a graph instead of patterns (but uses a less direct analogy with XPath).
chimezie: But wouldn't the use case of transforming one RDF graph to another be covered with inference rules? Or vice versa?
chimezie: Other path-based syntax: RDF Path, SBP on RDF Path, rdftwig
shellac: Yet more ReoPath, N3 Paths, Treehugger
shellac: RxPath
shellac: And also SPARQL results via XSLT (Alberto had a demo somewhere...), SPARQL construct...
karlcow: """In a closed world, what is not known to be true is believed to be false. With this assumption, negation as failure is possible. If using the Open World Assumption instead, having as a justification can only be applied if is consistent with the current knowledge."""
karlcow: It would be good to add this information to CWM Homepage
karlcow: Right now it says """Originally, the name is from from "Closed World Machine" because it processed information in a limited space, cwm does not make any assumptions about a closed world. Think of it as defined area but with openings - like a valley."""
karlcow: but you have to know the initial concept to understand the sentence.
