Pascal Hitzler – Semantic Web and the Web of Data

Pascal Hitzler
Wright State University


The Semantic Web is gaining momentum. Driven by over 10 years of focused project funding in the US and the EU, Semantic Web Technologies are now entering application areas in industry, academia, government, and the open Web. Central to this transfer into practice is the Linked Data effort, which has already resulted in the publication, on the Web, of billions of pieces of information in Semantic Web compatible data formats such as RDF and OWL. This provides the basic data needed for establishing intelligent system applications on the Web in the tradition of Semantic Web Technologies.

In this talk, we discuss the current state of the art, with an emphasis on Linked Data and required next steps towards the bigger Semantic Web vision.
