The RDF Primer.

Still prefer XTM :-(

Business Model for the Semantic Web

Business Model for the Semantic Web - Design Issues

Tim Berners Lee's seminal paper on the Semantic Web.

RDF Topic Sources is a great source of RDF files, covering things like famous people, kings and queens etc. Ideal Halo fodder.

SchemaWeb - RDF Schemas Directory

A home for RDF ontologies, and good links to the semantic web.

Piggy Bank

SIMILE | Piggy Bank

Silly name, but a revolutionary approach to the web, and possibly a key part of the semantic web. Piggy Bank defines "screenscrapers" which web site owners can write which convert the content of their web site into an RDF data structure which the Piggy Bank FireFox plug-in can then use in order to better access the information, combine it with other sources etc etc.

The interests for me are two fold:

1) Using it as part of ReaderBot to move to a next generation agent driven access device for visually impaired users

2) Getting my Halo AI to use it to extract information

Looks like I might have to learn OWL/RDF after all.

Pei Wangs Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System

Pei Wang's Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System (NARS) looks like the AI "pap(i)er de jour". Must see if there are any ideas for Halo whose about to have her XTM upgrade in September.

- interesting, his categorisation logic approach is a similar, but more advanced form, of what I'm looking to do with XTM.

Dakine Wave

Dakine Wave - VirtualStage

This looks like an excellent computer animation package - although I'd rather see cartoon characters than pseudo-human avatars. They say you can create your own though if you've got Poser or something similar.

Visual Feast and Visual Famine - BPost Column 050802

Every so often an application arrives on the Internet that takes your breath away. Google Earth is such an application. Using satellite photographs taken over the last three years Google has stitched together a complete image of the Earth. A globe which lets you zoom in with every increasing detail until you can see individual buildings, gardens and even cars. And when you get down to ground level you can tilt the entire image into a relief view so that mountains rise high above you, and seas spread out before you.
