Introduction to the Semantic Web, Semantic Bazaar and Garlik
New to the Semantic Web? This is the session for you! Christine Connors will introduce you to the basic concepts and foundations of the Semantic Web. Evan Sandhaus will take you to the emerging Linked Data cloud and Sergey Chernyshev will close the session with an introduction to RDFa for embedding rich metadata within your Web documents.
In addition we will introduce the Semantic Bazaar, an opportunity for start-ups, companies and enthusiasts alike to present their projects, products and ideas to the community. The Semantic Bazaar will open it's doors at 4:30pm and will close at 6pm.
Between 6pm and 6.45pm we will have Mischa Tuffield from Garlik to show us how they make use of Semantic Web technologies in their live systems, and how they benefit from using a triplestore, what the business incentives are and why it makes sense to them to deploy Semantic Web technologies. Later Mischa will talk about 4store and 5store with some example applications that are based on Garlik technology. The Garlik presentation will be geared towards a more advanced audience and is applicable for professional deployment.
