Open Knowledge Conference 2010

December 9, 2009 - 12:24 pm by Sören Auer - No comments »

OKCon, now in its fifth year, is the interdisciplinary conference that brings together individuals from across the open knowledge spectrum for a day of presentations and workshops.

Open knowledge promises significant social and economic benefits in a wide range of areas from governance to science, from culture to technology. Opening up access to content and data can radically increase access and reuse; improving transparency, fostering innovation and increasing societal welfare.

In addition to high-profile initiatives such as Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and the Human Genome Project, there is enormous growth among open knowledge projects and communities at all levels. Moreover, in the last year, many governments across the world began to open up their data.

And it doesn’t stop there. In academia, open access to both publications and data has been gathering momentum, and similar calls to open up learning materials have been heard in education. Furthermore, this gathering flood of open data and content is the creator and driver of massive technological change. How can we make this data available, how can we interlink it, how can we use it to collaborate and share our work?

Today is the second day of the Triple-I Conference in Graz / Austria. Thomas presented the SWORE Ontology for Requirements Engineering which is part of our Softwiki project and I will present the LDAP 2 SPARQL project tomorrow.

Graz is really a nice city with many cultural places of interest and a great old city center with small alley and this castle hill.

LDAP 2 SPARQL: Accessing RDF Knowledge Bases via LDAP Clients

June 6, 2007 - 3:50 pm by Sebastian Tramp - One comment »

In order to exploit the client support of LDAP directories with the semantic expressivity of RDF knowledge bases, we aim at integrating RDF knowledge bases into LDAP directory services.

LDAP 2 SPARQL is a Backend to the widely used OpenLDAP server. It translates LDAP queries into SPARQL queries, asks a SPARQL endpoint and translates the result back to LDIF.

We’ve just released LDAP 2 SPARQL 0.2, the first official version the backend. It was presented as a Demo at the 4th European Semantic Web Conference this week …
