A Semantic Internet of Things
In some forms of philosophy, it is believed that language determines the scope of human intelligence. If there are no words to express it, it can not be understood. On the web, this is something that is known for quite some time. The Semantic Web, coined by Tim Berners-Lee, was a first and important step in gathering the vast amount of knowledge available on the web.
In this talk, we will look not only at the digital but the physical. How can the Internet of Things help us to create a knowledge repository to understand the world? How can we use tools like the cloud (GCP), graph-databases and schema.org (Google’s RDF-IoT extension) and what can we learn from social networks like Facebook and Google+ to truly understand our world. We will look at classical IoT and new forms of IoT.
