Demos / Presentations

This presentation will provide an overview of biodiversity data, the challenges that they pose, and how we are working towards the development of a   semantic framework for their management. There will be some cursory discussion of thoughts for leveraging biodiversity knowledge within the context of both conservation and biomedical scenarios.
This talk summarizes four reasons why, and four mechanisms how, RDF will become the lingua franca for information exchange -- even when the data doesn't *look* like RDF -- and demonstrates a small proof-of-concept in IT management.  This is a highly abbreviated version of a presentation from this month's Semantic Technology Conference:
