2004: A Semantic Web Odyssey
by Jens Bowman, Sudhir Poole, Boris 9000
The PL oracles said they will be…
not always available
Therefore, as willing and eager PhD
students we decided to build…
The Semantic (Web) Oracle!
Main Research Hypothesis
Main problems in SW:
Difficult to access knowledge sources
unnatural query languages
Difficult to interpret results
Who wants to read RDF fragments?
Existing user interfaces suck!
We need a better one!
Our 24 Hrs. (Research) Goals
Provide a query-answering system
based on natural text
Make Philipp jealous – we implemented
the system in 24 hrs. without having a
clue of what we’re doing
Make Nenad jealous – we developed in
24 hrs. new query refinement
