According to the W3C, "The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries".
The Semantic Web is therefore regarded as an integrator across different content, information applications and systems.
The standards promote common data formats and exchange protocols on the Web, most fundamentally the Resource Description Framework (RDF).
This primer is designed to provide the reader with the basic knowledge required to effectively use RDF. It introduces the basic concepts of RDF and shows concrete examples of the use of RDF.
The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a family of World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) specifications originally designed as a metadata data model.
It has come to be used as a general method for conceptual description or modeling of information that is implemented in web resources, using a variety of syntax notations and data serialization formats.
RDF was adopted as a W3C recommendation in 1999. The RDF 1.0 specification was published in 2004, the RDF 1.1 specification in 2014.
a set of attribute-level extensions to HTML, XHTML and various XML-based document types for embedding rich metadata within Web documents.
Linked Data Platform (LDP) is a Linked Data specification defining a set of integration patterns for building RESTful HTTP services that are capable of read-write of RDF data.
The Linked Data Platform allows use of RESTful HTTP to consume, create, update and delete both RDF and non-RDF resources.
In addition, it defines a set of "Container" constructs—buckets into which documents can be added with a relationship between the bucket and the object similar to the relationship between a blog and its constituent blog posts.
Solid is an exciting new project led by Prof. Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, taking place at MIT. The project aims to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in true data ownership as well as improved privacy.
