Weekend Brain Dump of Ideas

Published 10 years ago by James Simmons

  • Semantic metadata for video and other multimedia?
  • Will a new platform away from the browser have huge success? (ala Joost)
  • How can video games benefit from what we're doing with the Semantic Web?
  • Is Wikipedia the best playground for natural language processors to test their ability?
  • Does the World Wide Web as we know it need to be replaced?
  • Is HTTP inadequate for the future of the Web where streaming and maintaining state are becoming increasingly important?
  • Are we entering another brutal browser war? Maybe this one will be different because we know the importance of compatability
  • Will RDF or RDF/a be adopted by mainstream Web developers to markup semantic metadata?
  • ...Or will something come along that's better suited and easier for beginners to pick-up
  • Are we making any progress as-is towards our goal, or do we need to look for a different approach?
  • Is the best course bottom-up (building the Semantic Web from the ground up by using semantic markup, microformats, RDF, etc) or is it top-down (using natural language processors to read the Web and make sense of it for us).
  • With the freedom to create any RDF vocabulary or any ontology for that matter, will the real power be in mapping my meaning to your meaning?

5 Problems of the Semantic Web

Published 10 years ago by James Simmons

I like to consider myself fair and balanced when speaking about most topics. To educate the uneducated and to balance things out a bit I have compiled a list of 5 problems we will likely run into when we reach the Semantic Web. Each problem is a side-effect of advances in technology, rushes to fill new niches, or the previous two plus the desire to make a quick dollar.

The Semantic Web is a thing of data purity and interconnectedness the likes of which we have not seen. However, people are selfish. On top of that, people are lazy and fallible. All of these qualities in humans form a road block that we must get past if we hope to create the Semantic Web. We need to both satisfy the selfishness of man and overcome our error-prone nature if we are to reach our goal.

The most pertinent issue surrounding the Semantic Web is why it has not yet gained strong traction from the development community. First, when I say grassroots I'm referring to the initiative of people like you and I to create the Semantic Web from the bottom-up. The ivory towers is the W3C and their initiative to create the Semantic Web. Both groups are pivotal to the acceptance and adoption of new standards and technologies. Without grassroots initiatives we would not have adoption and without the W3C we would not have standards (which we all have learned the Web most certainly requires).

More and more people are starting to discuss the Semantic Web, but few truly understand how it is different from the traditional World Wide Web. Though the Semantic Web will be realized as a layer upon the current Web, some of their basic philosophies are going to be updated significantly. This post tries to list some truth about the Semantic Web that is critical but often overlooked.

This entry is a response to I will never support the Semantic Web by Brian of d'bug.

I'm getting tired of reading about how the Semantic Web is some kind of pipe dream that will never be realized. The Semantic Web is completely and entirely within our technological reach. People may have been given the impression that we cannot create the Semantic Web because of its complexity, the number of years it has been in development, or even the unanswered questions that still exist for certain problems we will face. These are valid reasons to doubt our progress, but progress is certainly what we are making.

SIOCSemantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC for short) is a framework aimed at connecting online communities and discussions from blogs, forums, content management systems mailing lists, and anything else. In the current Web, communities such as forums and blogs are like islands - they contain valuable information but are not well connected or queryable. SIOC allows you to connect these sites, and enables the extraction of semantic information from unlimited discussion platforms.

Microsoft has taken steps in the direction of supporting Semantic Web standards such as RDF, OWL, and SPARQL. While their support is minimal and not hyped very broadly it is still nice to see the them implementing these standards in their software. I also haven't seen any evidence that they wish to formulate a proprietary brand of these standards, so I have no complaints.

Ping the Semantic WebPing the Semantic Web, the repository for RDF documents, has a page that lists every namespace they've come across as well as the number of references to each namespace. I've listed the top 20 namespaces and the number of references to each. It's interesting to see the sharp drop in references once you get past the top 5. Each of the links below point to a Zitgist Browser page for that namespace so that you can explore them further.
