The Search for Meaning on the Web: The Semantic Web and Managing a Lifetime's Information

 
  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web (WWW) was not his original aim, which was closer to what we now call the Semantic or Data Web (SW): documents and images where the system itself ‘understands’ its content as the WWW certainly does not, any more than a television knows what it is showing. 

Professor Wilks will describe the Semantic Web and its origin in annotation methods from the humanities and will argue the need for this form of AI to manage a lifetime’s information on the web.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture

Cost: Free of Charge
