45 minutes is actually not a long time to discuss the semantic web. What I'm going to try and focus on is the practical aspects in three areas:
I gather most of the audience is at least familiar with the basic concepts. I will therefore only speak about them briefly. I hope to make this a pretty hands-on experience, you can follow the talk at the link above. The slides should be online, and several examples are linked. I would greatly appreciate any feedback, so be sure to hit the Github Repo for the talk! In particular I will want to cover the notions of best-practice, openness and hopefully something that you can use.
"My centre is giving way, my right is in retreat, situation excellent. I attack." ― Ferdinand Foch
Taking Marechal Foch's sentence as an example, what might we want to do to provide context?
When humans read a piece of text, what they are doing is looking at labels which they translate into concepts. We have the concept of the Triangle of reference. There's a thing, we have a conceptualisation of that thing, and we communicate that with a symbol. There's lots of complexity there in reconciling the three.
