Playsound is a simple and intuitive web-based tool for music composition based on sounds from Freesound, an online repository of diverse audio content with Creative Commons licenses. In this paper, we present an approach based on Semantic Web technologies to provide recommendations to Playsound users. A Semantic Web of Things architecture is outlined, showing loosely coupled, independent software agents interoperating by means of a semantic publish/subscribe platform and a set of ontologies to…

Playsound.space: Improvising in the browser with semantic sound objects
TLDR
This paper describes the development and evaluation of the online music making tool Playsound.space and provides directions for future artistic and pedagogical applications that can benefit the design of other ubiquitous music systems.
Building the Semantic Web of Things Through a Dynamic Ontology
TLDR
This article presents a working implementation of the WoT declined in its Semantic flavor through the adoption of a shared ontology for describing devices that includes patterns for dynamic interactions between devices and is defined as dynamic ontology.

TLDR
Results indicate that the system was found easy to use and supports creative collaboration and expressiveness irrespective of musical ability.
Linked Data and You: Bringing Music Research Software into the Semantic Web
TLDR
The extent to which the OMRAS2 tools and frameworks can assist in research and facilitate distributed work among audio and music researchers is assessed, and further steps to improve collaborative efforts in music informatics using the Semantic Web are motivated.
An Ontology for Audio Features
TLDR
Novel Semantic Web ontologies are proposed to provide a common structure for feature data formats and to represent computational workflows of audio features facilitating their comparison.

Dynamic Linked Data: A SPARQL Event Processing Architecture
TLDR
A decentralized Web-based architecture designed to support the development of distributed, dynamic, context-aware and interoperable services and applications that enables the detection and notification of changes over the Web of Data by means of a content-based publish-subscribe mechanism.
A Semantic Publish-Subscribe Architecture for the Internet of Things
TLDR
A novel event detection algorithm, tailored on the IoT specificities (i.e., heterogeneous events need to be detected and continuous updates of few RDF triples dominate with respect to more complex updates), is presented along with the envisioned application design pattern and performance evaluation model.
Enabling Interoperability in the Internet of Things: A OSGi Semantic Information Broker Implementation
TLDR
The authors describe that how SPedia can serve as central hub for the cloud of LOD of scientific publications, and shows the quality of extracted data by performing sample queries through SPedia SPARQL Endpoint and analyzing results.
Fab: content-based, collaborative recommendation
TLDR
It is explained how a hybrid system can incorporate the advantages of both methods while inheriting the disadvantages of neither, and how the particular design of the Fab architecture brings two additional benefits.
A SPARQL Extension for Generating RDF from Heterogeneous Formats
TLDR
A new language, SPARQL-Generate, that generates RDF from: (i) a RDF Dataset, and (ii) a set of documents in arbitrary formats, and it is shown that this first naive open source implementation performs better than the reference implementation of RML for big transformations.
Introducing Thing Descriptions and Interactions: An Ontology for the Web of Things
TLDR
A vocabulary for WoT is presented that aims at defining IoT concepts using terms from the Web, built upon the ontological pattern Identifier, Resource, Entity that was originally designed for the Semantic Web.
