Introduction to Semantic Web

and Linking Information Across Disparate Sources


by Eric Franzon

What is Linked Data? And what is it not? What's the value? What are all these acronyms people keep talking about: RDF, OWL, SPARQL? What's a "triple" and why should you care? Does this have anything to do with "the Semantic Web"? Linked Data (or Linked Open Data) is an emerging set of concepts and technologies for combining and integrating data. Originating on the World Wide Web, the simplicity and scalability of Linked Data is now bringing the concept into enterprise data architectures as well.

As enterprise data is growing at a much faster rate than traditional technologies can cope, some different approach to large-scale information management is warranted. The World Wide Web is the only information system we know that scales to the degree that it does and is robust to both changes and failure of components.

This session will explain Linked Data principles and technologies and introduce some real-world examples of Linked Data in use.

Presenter: Eric Franzon, Semantic Universe
During his last ten years with Wilshire Conferences, Eric Franzon has been exploring the world of enterprise data. As VP of Semantic Universe, he has worked to raise awareness and explain the usage of semantic technologies in business and consumer settings.

A lifelong learner and teacher, Eric is frequently called on as a consultant, coach, and trainer around complex technical topics. He is an advisory committee representative with the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) and an Affiliate Analyst with Guidewire Group (www.guidewiregroup.com).

Eric has taught improvisational comedy, early childhood education, blues harmonica, and gender studies. He lives in Los Angeles.
