Semantic Web Workshop

A session at Salt Lake Software Symposium

Saturday 30th June, 2012

2:45pm to 4:15pm (MST)

The Web is changing faster than you can imagine and it is going to continue to do so. Webs of Documents are giving way to machine-processable Webs of Information. We no longer care about data containers, we only care about data and how it connects to what we already know.

Perhaps the concepts of the Semantic Web initiative are new to you. Or perhaps you have been hearing for years how great technologies like RDF, SPARQL, SKOS and OWL are and have yet to see anything real come out of it.

Whether you are jazzed or jaded, this workshop will provide you with the understanding of a technological tidal wave that is heading in your direction.

In this workshop, we will:

Explain the Web and Web architecture at a deeper level Apply Web and Semantic Web technologies in the Enterprise and make them work together Integrate structured and unstructured information Create good, long-lived logical names (URIs) for information and services Use the Resource Description Framework (RDF) to integrate documents, services and databases Use popular RDF vocabularies such as Dublin Core, FOAF, DOAP Query RDF and non-RDF datastores with the SPARQL query language Model and Do Inference with the Web Ontology Language (OWL)

Bring your laptops. This is a hands-on workshop.
