  • 1. University of Rome Tor Vergata VOCBENCH 2.0 A Collaborative Environment Web Application for the Development of Large Scale Thesauri and Concept Schemes Armando Stellato+, Sachit Rajbhandari*, Andrea Turbati+, Caterina Caracciolo*, Manuel Fiorelli+ Johannes Keizer*, Maria Teresa Pazienza+ +ART Group, Dept of Enterprise Engineering, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Via del Politecnico 1, 00133 Rome, Italy *Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00153 Rome, Italy Contacts: {surname}@info.uniroma2.it {name.surname}@fao.org LOD2014 Linked Open Data: where are we? Roma, 20th - 21st Feb 2014
  • 2. Why was it built? University of Rome Tor Vergata AGROVOC (big agriculture vocabulary developed by FAO) – In 2004: >32 000 concepts in up to 22 languages – A global group of terminologists. – No tool to support their work – No existing tool that met FAO’s needs 20/02/2014 LOD2014, Rome, February 2014 2
  • 3. University of Rome Tor Vergata V1 - 2010 • • • • • • Google Web Toolkit Lucene Protégé API OWLART API GWT / Presentation MySQL Business logic Custom OWL OWLART API Protégé 3.4 model MySQL 20/02/2014 LOD2014, Rome, February 2014 3
  • 4. V1 Problems University of Rome Tor Vergata • Couldn’t support other triple stores (Glued to Protégé API) • Custom OWL model • No support for emerging standards, e.g. SKOS • No import • No support for alignments – AGROVOC aligned to a dozen other vocabularies • Complicated export • No SPARQL endpoint 20/02/2014 LOD2014, Rome, February 2014 4
  • 5. Objectives for VB2.0… • University of Rome Tor Vergata A completely rebuilt backing framework for the service and data layers, based on an already existing open source project: Semantic Turkey1 – Based on OSGi Open Services Gateway – Open Connectibility to most notable RDF middleware and triple storing technologies (Sesame2, Jena, Allegrograph…) – Native support for SKOS and SKOSXL over RDF (no more conversions from internal legacy models), other than OWL • VB1.0 User Interface remains mostly unchanged in the first release of VB2.0 1. http://semanticturkey.uniroma2.it/ 20/02/2014 LOD2014, Rome, February 2014 5
  • 6. University of Rome Tor Vergata Vocbench 2.0 (and ST) Architecture Three layered extensible architecture • Presentation Layer – • GWT (Google Web Toolkit) Vocbench User Interface (Mozilla apps in the original framework) Services Layer – – HTTP based Services accessed through the Ajax paradigm – • Enables communication between the client (Vocbench UI) and the ontology persistence layer. OSGi Extensible Servicing System Persistence Layer – Access to ontological knowledge. – Based on dedicated ontology API, which can be implemented through use of different technologies. 6

  • 8. VB “desktop version”: Semantic Turkey for Firefox University of Rome Tor Vergata
  • 9. V2 Interested Partners • VocBench is ready!!! • University of Rome Tor Vergata Here is a list of interested partners adopting, or willing to adopt, VB2.0: – – Italian Senate (Teseo) – European Environment Agency (GEMET) – Harvard (UAT: Unified Astronomy Thesaurus) – Netherland Fire Brigade – INSEE, France – Arizona Geological Survey – EC Parliament Library – • EU Documentation Office (EUROVOC) …and others more And people willing to collaborate on it – Temis – NetAge – Reto Bachmann-Gmür (Apache Community) – possible liaison with Ontotext (we have been invited by them to participate the next LDBC/TUC workshop and present VB as a success story of integrating real triple stores into end user RDF development systems) 20/02/2014 LOD2014, Rome, February 2014 9
