Programming the Semantic Webby Toby Segaran
Synopses & Reviews
With this book, the promise of the Semantic Web — in which machines can find, share, and combine data on the Web — is not just a technical possibility, but a practical reality Programming the Semantic Web demonstrates several ways to implement semantic web applications, using current and emerging standards and technologies. You'll learn how to incorporate existing data sources into semantically aware applications and publish rich semantic data.
Stuck in the theory stage for years, semantic web technology is finally emerging in practice. This book explains how you can make use of semantic programming techniques to enrich and simplify your web applications, with real code examples you can use immediately. Programming the Semantic Web sorts through semantic standards and software, focusing on the technologies and patterns you'll find most useful in today's web programming environments. Each chapter takes you through a single piece of semantic technology, showing how you can use it to solve real problems, such as incorporating data sources into semantically aware applications. This book is one of the few resources available on the practical applications of semantic web.

About the Author
Toby Segaran is the author of "Programming Collective Intelligence", a very popular O'Reilly title. He was the founder of Incellico, a biotech software company later acquired by Genstruct. He currently holds the title of Data Magnate at Metaweb Technologies and is a frequent speaker at technology conferences.
Colin Evans combines machine learning and semantic analysis into a deadly one-two punch against information entropy and noisy data. The results of his efforts appear as millions of facts in Freebase. Prior to joining Metaweb, Colin helped users organize their world through his work on the IRIS semantic desktop project at SRI.
Jamie Taylor started one of the first ISPs in San Francisco while developing an Internet laboratory for studying economic equilibria. His goal was to get a better connection at home. He finally got a real job as CTO at DETERMINE Software (now a part of Selectica) helping create order in the unstructured world of Enterprise contract management. He is now helping to organize the world's structured information at Metaweb where he oversees data operations.
