Semantic Web Technologies: A Tutorial Li Ding University
Semantic Web Technologies: A Tutorial Li Ding University of Maryland Baltimore County Joint work with Deborah McGuinness, Tim Finin and Anupam Joshi Presented at Kodak Research Laboratories, Rochester, New York 18 July 2006 @ The Web has made people smarter craigslist 2 del.icio.us @ 3 But what about machines? tell register Machines still have a very minimal understanding of text and images. @ 4 Motivation: machine friendly data Natural Language Li Ding is a person as seen by a person
as seen by a machine XML represent structures Li Ding as seen by a person <> as seen by a machine Semantic Web - represent more semantics represent structures enable common vocabulary associate symbols with logic interpretation for inference @ Semantic Web Technologies @ 6 Semantic Web Layers Semantic Aspect Web Aspect HTTP
"The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. Berners-Lee, Hendler & Lassila, Scientific American, 2001 Image source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:W3c_semantic_web_stack.jpg @ 7 The Semantic Web is simple Each URI denotes a concept Don't say "colour" say URIs are connected by triples Relational database RDF (Resource Description Framework) Machines read data as directed RDF graph Source: Tim Berners-Lee, Putting the Web back into Semantic Web, ISWC2005 Keynote @ 8 Example: RDF graph and syntax http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name t1 Li Ding
http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type t2 http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person RDF Graph URI, Literal, BNode Triple The entire graph means: there exist a person whose name is Li Ding.
