Sesame: A Generic Architecture for Storing and Querying RDF and RDF Schema
TLDR
This work presents an overview of Sesame, an architecture for efficient storage and expressive querying of large quantities of metadata in RDF and RDF Schema, and its implementation and the first experiences with this implementation.
The Semantic Web: The Roles of XML and RDF
TLDR
It is argued that a further representation and inference layer is needed on top of the Web's current layers, and to establish such a layer, a general method for encoding ontology representation languages into RDF/RDF schema is proposed.
SeRQL: A Second Generation RDF Query Language
TLDR
This position paper introduces a set of general requirements for an RDF query language, compiled from discussions between RDF implementors, experience and user feedback, and goes on to show how these requirements have been compiled into drafting the SeRQL query language.
Enabling knowledge representation on the Web by extending RDF schema
TLDR
It is shown how RDFS can be extended to include a more expressive knowledge representation language, Ontology Inference Layer (OIL), which would enrich it with the required additional expressivity and the semantics of that language.
Bibster - A Semantics-Based Bibliographic Peer-to-Peer System
TLDR
The design and implementation of Bibster, a Peer-to-Peer system for exchanging bibliographic data among researchers, is described, which is a fully implemented open source solution built on top of the JXTA platform.
The Ontology Inference Layer OIL
TLDR
This paper presents OIL which is a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, based on existing proposals such as OKBC, XOL and RDF, and enriches them with necessary features for expressing rich ontologies.
A Comparison of RDF Query Languages
TLDR
This paper outlines and categorizes features that any RDF query language should provide and compares the individual languages along these features and concludes with a comparison of the expressiveness of the particular query languages.
Bibster - A Semantics-Based Bibliographic Peer-to-Peer System
This chapter describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of Bibster, a Peer-to-Peer system for exchanging bibliographic data among researchers. Bibster exploits ontologies in data-storage,
Ontology-based information visualisation
The main contribution is to show how visual representations of information can be based on ontological classifications of that information. We first discuss the central role of ontologies on the
Inferencing and Truth Maintenance in RDF Schema
TLDR
A detailed algorithm for truth maintenance for RDF(S) is given, which tracks all deductive dependencies between statements, and uses this to determine which other statements will have to be removed as a consequence of a single deletion.
