Session - Next Steps Toward Easier RDF

Session Organizers


This will be an interactive session to discuss possible steps toward lowering the adoption barrier for RDF. The goal is to enable average developers (middle 33% of ability) to develop successful RDF applications. Several practical steps will be proposed and discussed, including:

  • creating a central RDF website;
  • standardizing knowledge graphs and n-ary relations;
  • standardizing canonical RDF;
  • standardizing query-friendly arrays; and
  • deprecating RDF/XML

Several areas of research will also be proposed, including:

  • support for RDF molecules;
  • stable scoped identifiers;
  • integrating RDF inference rules into programming languages;
  • node renaming; and
  • simplifying the RDF model to one identifier space based on URIs/IRIs.
