I’ve been getting started with a new project, for which I need to get up to speed on this whole semantic web/linked data business. I was as let down by the results of my websearching as I was elevated by the tagged-and-up-voted material on Stack Overflow. Here is a little link library:
- What is the semantic web? http://stackoverflow.com/a/725480/1935494
- What is the difference between RDF and OWL? http://stackoverflow.com/a/1813585/1935494
- Is there a killer app for this technology? http://stackoverflow.com/q/2543507/1935494
- Where do I test SPARQL queries? http://stackoverflow.com/a/13907450/1935494
- What are some exploratory queries to run on a database? http://stackoverflow.com/a/2940696/1935494
Why am I doing this? Because supercomputer company Cray, Inc. has built a new type of supercomputer which is optimized for graph searching, and searching RDF with SPARQL is a low-overhead way to use it. And they are running a contest for scientists to do something interesting with their new tool, in which I am a contestant.
