"Semantic Web: Software View vs. Math View"

The Semantic Web is an idea to make data (on or off the Web) more amenable to machine interpretation and automated reasoning. Through standardized data formats and semantics, Semantic Web technologies enable the exchange, sharing and reuse of information across different Web sites and applications even in scenarios that were not engineered or planned in advance. In this talk we take a look at the Semantic Web from the practical software side while also discussing its formal foundations in graph theory and mathematical logic.
