Overview

The development of the Semantic Web, with machine-readable content, has the potential to revolutionize the World Wide Web and its uses. A Semantic
Web Primer
provides an introduction and guide to this continuously evolving field, describing its key ideas, languages, and technologies. Suitable for use as a textbook or for independent study by professionals, it concentrates on undergraduate-level fundamental concepts and techniques that will enable readers to proceed with building applications on their own and includes exercises, project descriptions, and annotated references to relevant online materials.

The third edition of this widely used text has been thoroughly updated, with significant new material that reflects a rapidly developing field. Treatment of the different languages (OWL2, rules) expands the coverage of
RDF and OWL, defining the data model independently of XML and including coverage of
N3/Turtle and RDFa. A chapter is devoted to OWL2, the new W3C standard. This edition also features additional coverage of the query language SPARQL, the rule language
RIF and the possibility of interaction between rules and ontology languages and applications. The chapter on Semantic Web applications reflects the rapid developments of the past few years. A new chapter offers ideas for term projects.
Additional material, including updates on the technological trends and research directions, can be found at http://www.semanticwebprimer.org.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"The third edition of A Semantic Web Primer catches up with the fast evolving semantic web technologies. The book takes the reader from the beginning to the details of developing semantic web applications in a few easy chapters. Not only is the book updated, but it offers an improved reorganization emphasizing key technologies such as SPARQL and discussing new trends such as linked data." -- Jerome Euzenat, Senior Research Scientist, National
Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), France

The MIT Press

"The 'Web of Data' is growing fast but if you really want to understand what's going on then you need to understand what's beneath the gloss. This book strips away the varnish and shows how 'semantic' systems work at scale, and what limits them. It remains the original and best textbook for those engineering knowledge for the web." -- Dave Robertson, Head of School of
Informatics, University of Edinburgh

Jeff Heflin
"This book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to learn about the SemanticWeb. By gathering the fundamental topics into a single volume, it spares the novice from having to read a dozen dense technical specifications. I have used the first edition in my Semantic Web course with much success."—Jeff Heflin, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science andEngineering, Lehigh University
