The Semantic Web: the inside story
OVERVIEW: In this talk I look at the Semantic Web idea of adding knowledge to the Web in ways compatible with machine processing. Emerging in the late 90s, and growing since then,the languages , usage and uptake of semantic technologies has been increasing. I'll discuss the genesis of this idea, some key steps in its history, and current usage. I also proposes challenges: Having far surpassed the original vision, how do we continue to use and grow the semantic web?
