RIF scope - exchange of RDFS/OWL fact models
To what extent will RIF address exchange of fact models in RDFS and OWL
www.w3.org/TR/swbp-vocab-pub describes best practices for publishing an RDFS or OWL vocabulary or ontology on the Web.
Does this address all that the RIF needs for exchanging fact models (fact types and instances)?
If not, what else is needed, and:
- • How much of it is within the scope of RIF • How much of it should be somewhere else because it addresses wider requirements than this of the RIF? • Will the RIF be exchanged by a similar publishing mechanism (www.w3.org/TR/swbp-vocab-pub)?
Position in the DC structure
1.3. Consistency with W3C specifications
- Alignment with Semantic Web
- Support RDF
- RIF should accept RDF triples as data. See The RIF Core must be able to accept RDF triples as data
- RIF should accept OWL knowledgebases as data. The RIF Core must be able to accept OWL KBs as data
- Support RDF
Critical success factor supporting Consistency with W3C specifications
We don’t want to include within RIF something that is well-addressed elsewhere
We don’t want to create dependencies on RIF of things that require only a standard for interchange of fact or knowledge bases
This has to be scoped correctly before we start detailed work.
