The Semantic Web changes the way we deal with data, because assumptions about the nature of the data that we deal with differ substantially from the ones in established database approaches. Semantic Web data is (i) provided by different people in an ad-hoc manner, (ii) distributed, (iii) semi-structured, (iv) (more or less) typed, (v) supposed to be used serendipitously. In fact, these are highly relevant assumptions and challenges, because they are frequently encountered in all kind of data-centric challenges – also in cases where Semantic Web standards are not in use. However, they are only partially accounted for in existing programming approaches for Semantic Web data including (i) semantic search, (ii) graph programming, and (iii) traditional database programming approaches. The main hypothesis of this talk is that we have not yet developed the right kind of programming paradigms to deal with the proper nature of Semantic Web data, because none of the mentioned approaches fully considers its characteristics. Thus, I want to outline empirical investigations of Semantic Web data and recent developments towards Semantic Web programming that target the reduction of the impedance mismatch between data engineering and programming approaches.

Cool! Thanks

Comment7 George Rice, January 9, 2021 at 2:08 a.m.:

Thank you for the rather informative conference. You seem to be proposing a very robust concept for data distribution. I wonder, given the use of the semantic web, will the response speed of the database itself increase? And to what extent is the time spent on programming the Semantic Web greater than the time spent on creating a conventional database with known relationships? I would like you to post such conferences on Instagram, because the audience there is much larger and you can read authoritative comments. Recently I came across a couple of programming conferences there and they were all posted on accounts with about 48 thousand subscribers! I am sure their authors use services to buy subscribers.

The fundamental theory of this discussion is that we have not yet built up the correct sort of programming standards to manage the appropriate idea of Semantic Web information. By :

I haven't been working on Semantic Web for a long time but after working for https://www.affordable-dissertation.c... for over five years, I would like to say that Semantic Web will change the face of web and Web Consortium.

An investment property is a property that has been purchased for the sole purpose of generating income. Investment properties in Bali can produce a return on investment in the form of rental returns or capital growth. Capital growth occurs when the value of the property has increased over time.
