  • From RSS

Today we open the registration for the seminar, which will be held May 25 (Tuesday) as part of the cycle of scientific seminars .

This time we invited Yorick Alexander Wilks, Oxford Internet Institute, Professor of Artificial Intelligence Department of Computer Science University of Sheffield.

Traditionally, the seminar will be held in the Moscow office of Yandex .

Topic : The WWW and the Semantic Web — what is their relationship?

Abstracts : The aim of the paper is to discuss implications of the so-called Semantic Web, particularly for the future of science; some might call this Berners-Lee's second big idea, and part of the talk will be about whether and how different this is from the World Wide Web we all know, and whether Berners-Lee's original conception was not closer to this second idea than the first, the WWW. I illustrate some of the indispensable aid the Semantic Web idea is giving to modern sciences, and the basis of residual skepticism about it, which may all turn out to be misplaced, as has proved the case with Machine Translation and Artificial Intelligence. I contrast this development with two neighboring developments: Wikiscience and the organization of personal knowledge on the Internet.

You can ask questions to the speaker and discuss the declared topic at the club .
