This talk is about the application of Semantic Web Standards to Personal Computers resulting in the Semantic Desktop. In the talk, several projects working towards the Semantic Desktop vision are presented. The integrated NEPOMUK project provides a standardized architecture which is implemented in several sub-projects: Aperture, KDE 4.0 (Xesam, Strigi), PSEW, Beagle++, gnowsis. DBIN, Haystack, OpenIris and Idealiance are alternative approaches. Most of the technology is available as open source components and can be used as a basis for your own work.
The ESTC conference is a European Semantic Web conference for professional providers and customers seeking products and consulting.
