Semantically Enabled Robot Can Bring You Lunch

Scientists have put semantic search technology into motion, literally: “The following demo, from the University of Tokyo and Technische Universität München, puts semantic search to the test by tasking a PR2 with fetching a sandwich. The PR2 has no detailed information on sandwiches, but its database tells it that sandwiches are a type of food, and that food can be found in kitchens and restaurants, and from that, it figures out where to look.” (View the demo above.)

The Simplicity of RDFa

Bob DuCharme, the presenter of next week’s webcast SPARQL Queries, SPARQL Technology recently wrote a brief article showing how simple RDFa can be. DuCharme begins, “I got so tired of hearing people complain about how confusing RDFa is that while I was on hold during a recent phone call I threw together a demo of just how simple it can be. The document has the two basic kinds of triples: one with a literal for an object, with data typing thrown in for good measure, and one with a resource URI as its object.” Read more
