Hi guys, I want to know the best example (project/idea) which provides a strong edge of semantic web over the ordinary RDBMS and web 2.0. What can be a stong idea of developing a project. As in semantic web, we can integrate different databases, so what could be the best combination of different systems, to integrate them, so that we have an intelligent integrated, more efficient, reliable, and powerful system than what exists today.

Regards Tariq

Was discussing earlier today with Nathan lifestreaming. That is, taking everything you do - especially the things you do online - and integrating it into one chronologically organised feed/database.

This would typically involve reading data from many different sites (blogs, bookmark sharing, social networks, photo upload sites, forums, etc) in RDF if they provide it (e.g. a FOAF file or RSS 1.0 feed) or another format which can be uplifted to RDF and then combining it cleverly.

RDF fits this sort of task a lot better than traditional databases do, as each site would typically have its own specific sorts of data that would not be relevent for the others - e.g. the photo site might provide lots of photo-specific data such as resolution, camera model, orientation, etc.

I don't fully follow, but +1 for the cool name "lifestreaming"... (Orwell would be proud.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifestreaming provides reasonable info--it's a well-used name.

A good, easy and friendly semantic search site ! I love sindice, but i dont expect see my mother using a site like it. I have good ideas to put in practice in my future doctor degree...

can you please explain me the purpose of this site, and what's the usage ?

It's a semantic search engine. Maybe this would be better as a separate question.

I wrote a few blog posts of semantic web project ideas at http://bit.ly/i9IgRC a few years ago.

Sig.ma (based on Sindice), gives in my opinion a nice view of what becomes possible. Watch the video. In my point of view, a lot has been done so far to put in place the architecture, now we are ready to show the power of all that (as expressed here about the lifestreaming example) with tools as Sig.ma and also more specific and useful ones which will serve the end-user (eventhough the technology will still be hidden).
