Webinar: Semantic Web for Developers

GotoWebinar, March 20: Semantic Web for Developers – building semantic applications with PoolPartyWeb based ontology manager which can serve as a central hub for your knowledge organization. With PoolParty you can organize and maintain knowledge models based on widely accepted specifications like RDF, SPARQL and SKOS.

This webinar gives insights into software development based on semantic web standards. We will give a short overview over frequently used standards (SPARQL, SKOSSimple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a family of formal languages designed for representation of thesauri, classification schemes, taxonomies, subject-heading systems, or any other type of structured controlled vocabulary. SKOS is built upon RDF and RDFS, and its main objective is to ... and RDF), application scenarios and technologies (OpenRDF, Virtuoso, Solr/Lucene) and we will give live-demos on how to make use of PoolParty technologies to build a variety of semantic applications.

Part 1 (15min):
Short introduction to semantic web and linked data standards, overview over typical application scenarios

Part 2 (30min):
PoolParty architecture, components and APIs: making use of the linked data front end, Sparql endpoint, PoolParty reports, thesaurusA thesaurus is a book that lists words grouped together according to similarity of meaning, in contrast to a dictionary, which contains definitions and pronunciations. The largest thesaurus in the world is the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary, which contains more than ... APIAn application programming interface (API) is an interface implemented by a software program to enable interaction with other software, similar to the way a user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers. APIs are implemented by applications, libraries and operating systems ... (PPT API), extractor API (PPX API) and semantic search API (PPS API) -  for each API, an example will be shown (incl. returned formats and how to make use of it in a programming language like PHP)

Part 3 (10min):
Putting the pieces together: Combine the APIs to build

- a semantic search engine
- a content recommender
- a linked data mashup
