  8. 8. Knowledge Production: automatic Semantic Annotation of ClaimsDigital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie Rhetorical Vocabulary (extremely simplified)Fritz Mauthner asan Historian For example, he argues that neither Duns Scotus nor Ockham could go any further than he did, because of the limits of the Latin they both used. Mauthner generally went to the original writings he discussed, although there is quite a lot of inevitable borrowing from secondary sources, when the original material was not available. Zufallsgeschichte, in this sense, means indeed that history is a series of accidents, and from this it follows that the appropriate explanatory concepts in history are modal concepts.

RDF – Resource Description Framework Graph based Data – nodes and arcs  Identifies objects (URIs)  Interlink information (Relationships) 2. Vocabularies (Ontologies)  provide shared understanding of a domain  organise knowledge in a machine-comprehensible way  give an exploitable meaning to the data Enabling networked knowledge 9 of 46 9
