- Semantic Web models and technologies provide information in machine-readable languages that enable computers to access the Web more intelligently and perform tasks automatically without the direction of users. These technologies are relatively recent and advancing rapidly, creating a set of unique challenges for those developing applications. Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist is the essential, comprehensive resource on semantic modeling, for practitioners in health care, artificial intelligence, finance, engineering, military intelligence, enterprise architecture, and more. Focused on developing useful and reusable models, this market-leading book explains how to build semantic content (ontologies) and how to build applications that access that content. New in this edition: Coverage of the latest Semantic Web tools for organizing, querying, and processing information - see details in TOC below Detailed information on the latest ontologies used in key web applications including ecommerce, social networking, data mining, using government data, and more . Provides practical information for all programmers and subject matter experts engaged in modeling data to fit the requirements of the Semantic Web. . De-emphasizes algorithms and proofs, focusing instead on real-world problems, creative solutions, and highly illustrative examples. . Presents detailed, ready-to-apply "recipes" for use in many specific situations. . Shows how to create new recipes from RDF, RDFS, and OWL constructs., What is the Semantic Web? -- Semantic modeling -- RDFS -- the basis of the Semantic Web -- Semantic Web application architecture -- Querying the Semantic Web -- SPARQL -- RDF and inferencing -- RDF schema -- RDFS-Plus -- Using RDFS-Plus in the wild -- SKOS -- managing vocabularies with RDFS-Plus -- Basic OWL -- Counting and sets in OWL -- Ontologies on the Web -- putting it all together -- Good and bad modeling practices -- Expert modeling in OWL -- Conclusions.
