Lately, there was much ado about this thing called the Semantic Web. Dries Buytaert put the topic on the forefront in his DrupalConSF Keynote earlier this year.
But what is the Semantic Web? Why is it important? And what's Drupals' role in this? Krimson has been part of a research project
sponsored by IWT called Archipel (http://www.archipel-project.be). Our role in the project is to publish Linked Open data, stored in a shared repository, in a consistent fashion. This means leveraging typical tools found on the Semantic Web like SPARQL and RDF.
In this session, I will:
* Give a very small introduction to the Semantic Web
* Give you a demo of SPARQL Views, a linked open data query tool build on top of the Views API.
* Show you a real life use case we've build with Drupal over the past months.
* Talk about why you should start considering the Semantic Web too.
