  • 2. <ul><li>Semantic Web: Where&apos;s the URI? </li></ul><ul><li>Why is the Semantic Web Not Important? </li></ul><ul><li>Why is the Semantic Web Important? </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul><ul><li>My Projects </li></ul><ul><li>Questions </li></ul><ul><li>References </li></ul>image: http://www.nature.com/jid/journal/v123/n4/suppinfo/5602511s1.html
  • 3. Semantic Web: Where&apos;s the URI? <ul><li>When grantless people ask about or define the semantic web, there&apos;s been a long standing problem of pointing to single handle, a manageable definition. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>image: http://www.crystal.chem.uu.nl/group-gros/ </li></ul></ul>
  • 4. Semantic Web: Where&apos;s the URI? <ul><li>A new kind of database... A triple store? </li></ul><ul><li>Data feeds and meta data I can mash up? </li></ul><ul><li>Ontological models of a system? </li></ul><ul><li>The largest shared graph of all data structures? </li></ul><ul><li>A trust and identity infrastructure? </li></ul><ul><li>A set of XML based data interchange standards managed by the W3C? </li></ul>
  • 5. Semantic Web: Where&apos;s the URI? <ul><li>The latest manifestation of description logic capable knowledge base? </li></ul><ul><li>XML +DAML+OIL + RDF + RDFS + OWL + RSS + OPML for multi agent systems? </li></ul><ul><li>A best practice? </li></ul><ul><li>An idea? </li></ul><ul><li>“ it has no boundary and [should] not intersect itself”? (see title image)‏ </li></ul>
  • 6. Semantic Web: Where&apos;s the URI? If you can&apos;t explain, you might either appear to be, or be , foolish.
  • 7. Why the Semantic Web Is Not Important <ul><li>Please don&apos;t throw things at projector screen </li></ul><ul><li>It&apos;s too much work. </li></ul><ul><li>It isn&apos;t ready. </li></ul><ul><li>I already have a database – and it has SQL </li></ul><ul><li>I already have a webpage. </li></ul><ul><li>There are better ways to data mine </li></ul><ul><li>It will never work </li></ul><ul><li>donuts – they are sweeter </li></ul>
  • 8. Why the Semantic Web Is Important <ul><li>Ignore the last slide </li></ul><ul><li>It is something new, when taken as a whole </li></ul><ul><li>opportunity for standardization of information </li></ul><ul><li>interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving </li></ul><ul><li>prevention and cures for diseases </li></ul><ul><li>world peace ... </li></ul>(What regular human beings should know)‏
  • 9. Who will be right? <ul><li>The reasons the Semantic Web is not important really just comes down to conventional thinking </li></ul><ul><li>The reasons it is important is going to be however the Semantic Web is used. </li></ul>
  • 10. Conclusion: What SemWeb Can Learn from OldWeb <ul><li>Since the Semantic Web will only exists outside convention, get non techies to build stuff with it. </li></ul><ul><li>The Semantic Web inherently requires grass-roots style buy-in. </li></ul><ul><li>The Semantic Web is a human problem now, not a technical one. </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborate on smaller projects that can gain momentum and fill a user space. </li></ul><ul><li>Build first, get user adoption, conform to all standards later. </li></ul>
