AIC Seminar Series

Semantics Wikis and Microformats: Bringing the Semantic Web to Today's Web

Adam Souzis

Notice:  hosted by Joshua Levy

Date:  2006-10-20 at 14:00

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)

   Abstract

This talk will discuss Semantic Wikis and other light-weight and user-friendly mechanisms for creating Semantic Web content, such as microformats and emerging W3C standards such as RDF/A and GRDDL. Semantic Wikis are wikis that let users add explicit semantics (usually represented as RDF) to content. Microformats and RDF/A are different approaches for annotating the content contained in a HTML page with explicit semantics and GRDDL is a mechanism for describing how to extract RDF out of arbitrary HTML or XML.

This talk will demonstrate these technologies using Rhizome, an open source Wiki-like content management and delivery system that treats all content, metadata, and structure as RDF and lets users edit any RDF resource as they would a wiki page. Rhizome supports microformats, RDF/A, and GRDDL through a process called "shredding": a flexible framework for specifying rules for characterizing semi-structured content with RDF and providing an ontology that can precisely describe the relationship between the source content and the resulting statements.
