A bunch of introductory links for students doing a thesis in the Semantic Web area (in no particular order).

What would be your picks?

    We’d pick Swoogle, of course. http://swoogle.umbc.edu/.

    The previous we is me, in this instance, at least.

  3. I would add the nice SPARQL / Maps hack by Leigh Dodds, its a perfect mashup that shows the power of RDF:

    And, If you teach other students, never forget D2RQ, perhaps someone will pick up the ball…

    I had a crack a while at Semantic Web Starting Points, which could do with updating with the rdf:about material and the updated xml.com What is RDF? piece. Also maybe some of Bijan KR intro stuff plus the What is a Knowledge Representation? paper, hmm maybe John Sowa’s Mathematical Background too. I vaguely remember Shelley did some tutorial stuff not long ago, probably particularly good for PHP/MySQL-heads.

    What I’d really like to see is a dynamic tutorial builder, so you’d fill in a form for what you were interested in & what you knew already, and the result would look something like this. Shouldn’t be too hard to make, and if you included something like a smarter version of del.icio.us tagging you could let other people put together the metadata…

  6. A practical demonstration of shared ontologies that demonstrates the essence of the Semantic Web’s “Web of Databases” aspect. See: http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com/wiki/main/Main/ODSSIOCRef

    Note that this page includes SPARQL Protocol links to a live demo instance for each of the queries. It is also a live document.

    You may also consider: http://demo.openlinksw.com/sparql_demo/ (a live Interactive SPARQL Query Service).

    Oh yeah, Kingsley got a point : showing is more effective than telling…

    Nice idea.

    What about adding:

    Li and Tim’s paper about Characterizing the Semantic Web
    which gives a nice overview about the current development status of the Semantic Web and clearly states that everything that is not ON THE WEB has nothing to do with the Semantic Web.

    A link to a toolkit list might also be interesting for students, for example
    http://esw.w3.org/topic/SemanticWebTools or
