  7. 7. Our Digital Universe •  Unimaginable –  Scope –  Scale –  Opportunities –  Challenges •  “It amazes us because we simply don’t understand it.” –  Gérard Berry, Académie françaisewww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  8. 8. A Time of Fundamental Change •  Conventional approaches exhausted ? –  Does scope and scale lead to fundamental change •  From the Computing Era to the Problem Solving Era –  E.g., Social computingwww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  9. 9. What? •  Critical Applications @ scale: Healthcare •  Problem Solving •  Techy Stuff –  Big Data –  Services –  Cloud –  Semantic Web –  Semantic Technologies –  …www.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  10. 10. Why Are We Here? •  Semantic Technologies –  Pillar of Modern Computing •  Semantic Web –  Linked Data •  Social Semanticswww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  11. 11. Semantic Technology Adoption … •  Research –  Across computer science disciplines –  Across application disciplines, •  e.g. eHealth, life sciences, smart grids, … •  Commercialization –  Business applications •  Early adopters •  Mainstream application developerswww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  12. 12. Synergy Opportunities •  Databases –  NoSQL databases •  Information Retrieval –  Access structured and unstructured data in a uniform way •  Data / Text mining –  Bridge the gap to semantic representations •  Software Engineering –  Reuse-oriented development •  Social Sciences –  Analyze and understand the development of communitieswww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  13. 13. Topics… •  State-of-the-art: Where we are, trends, key issues, challenges –  Successes –  Adoption •  Future –  Application potential •  Grounded in pragmatics, use cases –  Challenges •  Visionary –  Strategic perspectives –  Grand challenges –  Topics for a 5 year research and development agendawww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  14. 14. Hard Questions •  Why hasn’t semantic web technology caught on in a commercially- interesting way? –  If I hear the answer “immature tools” again, I will be ill… –  Is there a commercial use case for page-based semantic markup beyond SEO and maybe GoodRelations? •  What is the role of logical inference in the Semantic Web? –  Data is often impossible to cache –  Data at this scale always includes mistakes –  What did LarKC’s experience teach us? •  How should the Semantic Web community react to the resurgence of “low semantics” data markup like Facebook OGP and schema.org? –  Main (technical) criticism was that webmaster authoring in RDFa was too difficult •  Where is the next big tranche of Semantic Web data coming from? –  Social data, transactional data, geolocation data, advertising data?www.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  15. 15. Attitude – Orientation •  AI-Database •  Semantics •  Engineeringwww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  16. 16. Summit Themes •  Big Data: Manage, Search, Integrate, … •  Making Linked Data Work –  Applications: Linked Data in Domains –  Linked Data + Services, Ontologies, … •  Social Semantics –  Social data is all about emergent phenomena –  Includes aspects of Big Data and Linked Data •  Adds unique issues of privacy, consensus/diversity, analytics, very loose data models (“friend,” “like,” “recommend”), etc.www.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  17. 17. Agenda•  Wednesday –  Managing Data Semantic Web Scale I: Michael –  Future of the Semantic Web: Rudi•  Thursday –  Social Semantics: Mark –  Linked Data in Domains: Mark –  Managing Data Semantic Web Scale II: Michael –  Making Linked Data Work I: Rudi –  The Story So Far I: Dieter, All•  Friday –  Making Linked Data Work II: Rudi –  The Story So Far II: All –  Closingwww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
  18. 18. Guidance •  Not a conference = not reports of research results •  Predominately open discussion •  Presentations –  Clear –  Short –  Provocativewww.sti2.org 7/2011 -Summit
