Stardog - Clark & Parsia, Kendall Clark
Clark & Parsia is a leading supplier of innovative semantic technologies, with a focus on OWL automated reasoning. The OWL reasoning system, Pellet, provides a solution for expressive reasoning and modeling with semantic data. Kendall will present Stardog, the forthcoming commercial RDF database from C&P, featuring full OWL2 reasoning capabilities and fast query performance in a lightweight, pure Java implementation.
Needle - Glenn McDonald
Needlebase is a data acquisition, integration, correction, analysis and republishing platform, which lets you assemble, explore and query graph-structured databases. It does not represent these databases as sets of triples, doesn't serialize them as RDF, and doesn't query them with SPARQL. Glenn will talk about why not, and what Needle does instead, and why it might matter.
