Annotea is a W3C Semantic Web Advanced Development project that provides a framework for rich communication about Web pages through shared RDF metadata. An RDF model of bookmark classification permits multiple classification systems to be related to each
Welcome to RDFWeb's 'Friend of a Friend' (FOAF) project developer site. RDFWeb is an experimental linked information system, exploring some interconnected applications of the Semantic Web, beginning with the deployment of FOAF. FOAF documents are, in
In this column, Uche Ogbuji completes his introduction to XML and semantics, setting the stage for the more practical columns that will follow. Thinking XML addresses knowledge management aspects of XML, including metadata, semantics, Resource Description
Repeat after me: "There is no syntax." In order to use and gain advantage from RDF, you do not have to use any particular syntax -- not even the syntax specified in the RDF 1.0 specification. Uche Ogbuji discusses the importance of XML/RDF interchange, of
Uche Ogbuji moves on to a discussion of a far more sophisticated RDF query language than the primitive API he has discussed thus far. This is the foundation for establishing the middleware for the Issue Tracker article in coming installments. So far, in
The motivation is to enable the common and consistent description of persons (using the existing semantics of vCard) and to encode these in RDF/XML. RDF is an application of the Extensible Markup Language XML.
xmlns.com is an internet domain created for the purposes of simple Web namespace management. The rationale for registering xmlns.com was to secure a short, memorable domain suitable for naming concepts for use in RDF and XML vocabularies.
FOAFCorp: Corporate Friends of Friends What is this? RDF is a great data format for describing interconnected entities. With FOAF, we have a simple fun vocabulary for describing social networks, people, organisations etc. The FOAFCorp experiment extends
This column, the third in a series, shows how to add semantic knowledge to an RDF application by incorporating WordNet synonym sets. With the added knowledge of the WordNet lexical database, you can search a set of RDF data for related concepts, not just
The basis of RDF's strength as a knowledge-management tool is that it allows you to organize, interrelate, classify, and annotate this knowledge, thereby increasing the aggregate value of the stored data. RDF has a reputation for complexity that is belied
This Primer is designed to provide the reader with the basic knowledge required to effectively use RDF. It introduces the basic concepts of RDF and describes its XML syntax. It describes how to define RDF vocabularies using the RDF Vocabulary Description
This Thinking XML column shows how to combine metadata collected from multiple XML source documents into a single Resource Description Framework (RDF) model for effective querying. In this follow-up to his previous installment that introduced how to use X
This article introduces Resource Description Framework (RDF), developed by the W3C for Web-based metadata, using XML as an interchange syntax. RDF's essential aim is to make work easier for autonomous agents, which would refine the Web by improving search
