1 RDF: The Resource Description Framework Machine Understandable Metadata for the Web Ralph R. Swick W3C/MIT 2-November-1998

2 2-Nov-1998/swick2 Introducing: RDF Improve on PICS, HTML, and XML Machine understandable metadata Support structured values Support metadata bureaus Encourage authenticated metadata Base for a variety of descriptions: –cataloging, privacy, accessibility, IPR,...

3 2-Nov-1998/swick3 RDF Components Formal data model Syntax for interchange of data Schema Type system (schema model) Syntax for machine-understandable schemas Query and profile protocols

4 2-Nov-1998/swick4 RDF Data Model Imposes structural constraints on the expression of application data models – for consistent encoding, exchange and processing of metadata Enables resource description communities to define their own semantics Provides for structural interoperability

5 2-Nov-1998/swick5 RDF Data Model Directed labeled graphs Model elements –Resource –Property –Property value –Statement

6 2-Nov-1998/swick6 RDF Model Primitives ResourceValue Property Statement

9 2-Nov-1998/swick9 RDF Syntax Uses eXtensible Markup Language (XML) Highly formalized –graph serialization Property Names and Values are always unambiguous

22 2-Nov-1998/swick22 Summary RDF is a general-purpose framework RDF provides structured, machine- understandable metadata for the Web Metadata vocabularies can be developed without central coordination RDF Schemas describe the meaning of each property name Signed RDF is the basis for trust
