Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) -luonnoksia: Format, Best Practices, Primer

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2007-12-19 , uutislähde )

2007-12-19: The Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) Working Group has published three documents: First Public Working Drafts of EXI Best Practices and EXI Primer, as well as a Working Draft of EXI Format 1.0. EXI is a very compact representation for the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Information Set that is intended to simultaneously optimize performance and the utilization of computational resources. Using a relatively simple algorithm, which is amenable to fast and compact implementation, and a small set of data types, it reliably produces efficient encodings of XML event streams. The primer and best practices documents complement the format specification. The best practices document also presents information suitable for the general reader interested in EXI's intended role in the expanding Web.

Cool URIs for the Semantic Web discusses two strategies for choosing URIs for the Semantic Web, gives pointers to several Web sites that use these solutions, and briefly discusses why several other alternatives are less effective. Comments on this draft are requested by 21 January, to be integrated into a final document at the end of the Group's charter. Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity. (Permalink)

Teollisuusjohtajat keskustelevat videon integroinnista Webiin

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2007-12-12 , uutislähde )

2007-12-12: Video on the Web is hot! That is why Adobe, Apple, Canon, CBS Interactive, Cisco, Comcast, Disney, Hitachi, Motorola, Mozilla, Nokia, Opera, RealNetworks, Samsung, Sony, Sun, Turner Broadcasting, Web3D Consortium, YouTube, and other industry leaders have chosen to meet in San Jose (California) at the W3C Video on the Web Workshop on 12-13 December 2007 to discuss the video landscape. More and more people are publishing high-quality video, social networks are sprouting up around Web-delivered media, and IPTV (Internet-based delivery of television programming) is maturing rapidly. These and other changes pose challenges to the underlying technologies and standards to support the platform-independent creation, authoring, encoding/decoding, and description of video. To ensure the success of video as a "first class citizen" of the Web, W3C has invited the community to explore how to build a solid architectural foundation that enables people to create, navigate, search, and distribute video, and to manage digital rights; see the full agenda. W3C thanks Cisco for hosting the Workshop and to all the participants who sent position papers. (Permalink)

Kolme RIF-luonnosta: Basic Logic Dialect, RDF and OWL Compatibility ja Core Design (Placeholder)

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2007-10-31 , uutislähde )

2007-10-31: The Rule Interchange Format Working Group has published three documents: RIF Basic Logic Dialect , RIF RDF and OWL Compatibility, and RIF Core Design - Placeholder; the first two are First Public Working Drafts. Basic Logic Dialect specifies a basic format that allows logic rules to be exchanged between rule-based systems. Rules interchanged using the Rule Interchange Format RIF may depend on or be used in combination with RDF data and/or RDF Schema or OWL data models. RIF RDF and OWL Compatibility specifies compatibility of RIF with the Semantic Web languages RDF and RDFS; in the future the document will address OWL as well. Finally, the Placeholder document resets expectations about the core RIF design. The Working Group has decided that that the design previously published as RIF Core is better considered as the basis for Logic Rules, rather than all kinds of rules. In the future, a new Core may be published, but for now, interested parties should refer to the Basic Logic Dialect. Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity. (Permalink)
