Social and Semantic Web: Adding the Missing Links
INRIA Research Center of Sophia-Antipolis
OVERVIEW: Since the mid-90s the Web re-opened in read-write mode and, almost as a side effect, paved the way to numerous new social media applications. Today, the Web is no longer perceived as a document system but as a virtual place where persons and software interact in mixed communities. These large scale interactions create many problems -- in particular, reconciling the formal semantics of computer science (e.g. logics, ontologies, typing systems, etc.) on which the Web architecture is built, with the soft semantics of people (e.g. posts, tags, status, etc.) on which the Web content is built. Wimmics, among other research labs, studies methods, models and algorithms to bridge formal semantics and social semantics on the Web. We focus on the characterization of typed graph formalisms to model and capture these different pieces of knowledge and hybrid operators to process them jointly. This talk will describe the basics of semantic web formalisms and introduce different initiatives using these frameworks to represent reason and support social media and social applications on the web.
