Wipro web3.0 seminar-brochure

  1. 1. rd23 June’10One day Knowledge Seminar OnWeb3.0,Semantics &Enterprise Computing
  2. 2. Seminar Overview As Enterprise Computing evolved from individual applications and systems to large scale integration and interoperability of Web Services, the Web itself has undergone a rapid transformation. From the phonographic Web of the early 90’s, it evolved into read-write web heralding Collaborative Computing paradigms and it is now fast evolving into a Semantic and Agentive Web. The Internet has become a computing, deployment and programming platform in itself. As content is evolving from data and information to machine understandable meaning, the underlying usage is evolving from individual usage to goal oriented, self organizing communities centered around content, information and other services. The semantic/agentive web is all about creating and harnessing the power of collective knowledge. This one day knowledge seminar focuses on bringing together in depth experiential insights on the underlying concepts, techniques and technologies that govern the semantic computing with an emphasis on architectural aspects of building Semantic applications. We cover such topics as representing domain knowledge using ontology design techniques and tools (RDF, RDFS, OWL, SPARQL), schemaless databases and their implications such as Mulgara. We illustrate with case studies the architectural challenges of organizing massively scalable content repositories, user experience models and issues in Page 2

The Seminar is brought to you by Canopus Consulting – a new generation enterprise architecture consulting firm. The speakers are leaders in Cultural Informatics, Semantic and Collaborative Computing with several patents and publications, awards and workshops to their credit. 9.30 - 10.30am The power and the pursuit of meaning A Historical and Interpretative tour of everything “semantic”, and the evolution of the Web and Computing from a technology and architecture perspective. The shift from phonographic to agentive and ultimately cultural web. The Information-Content-Culture shift and impacts on societies, enterprises, as a whole. The ownership of content, contextualizing content and goal oriented communities, the implications of creating collective and sharable knowledge. The various aspects of Ontologies and their role in domain representations. The web as a platform for application development, various aspects of large scale content repositories. 10.45 - 12.45pm From Logical to Ontological The fundamental aspect of semantic web technology is to facilitate "agentive" applications to interact without needing to integrate using application specific APIs. This enables applications to evolve and change independently, yet retain the ability to interact. At the heart of this capability is representing the semantics (behavior) of a domain as an ontology designed to be machine processed. Languages such as RDF, RDFS, OWL and SPARQL have emerged as accepted standards to represent, exchange and infer ontological information. In this session, we will illustrate how to represent domain knowledge as an ontology and make inferences. We will introduce schemaless databases as a means of unlocking the meaning within data. We will use a real world Page 3

We will discuss OWL, SPARQL, RDFS and RDF. 12.45 – 2.00 pm – Lunch Break 2.00 – 3.00 pm Folklore of User Experience Highlight Web 3.0: Design Metaphors “If you build, engage, share, collaborate, personalize, syndicate, secure and open policies …provide multiple device access to what they want, when they want it and how they want it… they will come” - Future Web 3.0 Design around Users & Data. Prototype – Create it, Learn from it, Change it and Refine it. Technology is a the driver along but it’s not what the software does; it’s what the user wants it to do. Linking Data is the power of 3.0. Key Factors: Always Connected, HTML 5, Semantic Web (Meaning of Data), Cloud Computing, Websites as Web Services, SaaS, Persistent Identities, Data as a Service 3.15 – 4.30pm Enterprising Semantics In this session, we focus on domain specific ontologies, using semantic computing techniques in Enterprise Applications, Architectural issues, challenges and insights into building an Ontological aware middleware. Embedding Semantics in Variable Names, embedding semantics in Object behavior, to representing knowledge using information models and formal Page 4
