Information Indexing and Search: Lucene 3.0
This presentation is aimed at people new to Lucene in general and existing Lucene users interested in Lucene 3.0. The presentation will give an overview of what Lucene is, where and how it can be used. We'll cover the basic Lucene concepts (index, Directory, Document, Field, Term), text analysis (tokenizing, token filtering, stop words, stemming), indexing (how to create an index, how to index documents), and searching (query syntax, how to run keyword, phrase, boolean and other queries). We'll peek at Lucene indices with Luke, a powerful desktop app for working with Lucene indices.
Semantic Web Programming
Applications bring the Semantic Web alive - revealing its value. Using open source tools and useful examples, we demonstrate practical methods to exercise the Semantic Web based upon on our Wiley book, "Semantic Web Programming". We open with a "Hello Semantic Web World" application that outlines the key components to a Semantic Web application, quickly moving on to our "FriendTacker" Semantic Web application that demonstrates integration through the semantic unification of Jabber Instant Message buddies, WordPress Blogs, Facebook Social networks, and more touching on longitudinal and geospatial considerations. We finish with the four key Semantic Web application challenges ahead as the Semantic Web progress pushes into new data frontiers to encourage us all to contribute to realize the Semantic Web's potential.
