  1. Tetherless World Constellation Jim Hendler Deb McGuinness http://tw.rpi.edu/

  2. What is a Constellation? • "Rensselaer Plan" identifies constellations • Multiple chaired professors (3 is typical) • May be from multiple depts • Outside Dept Structure • Integrative centers for interdisciplinary work • Separate funding lines • Faculty lines not charged to dept (I.e. don't compete w/dept hires) • Report to President's Office • Key areas: Biotechnology and Information Technology

  3. Figure 1: The Web presents new challenges to software engineering and application development. Tetherless World Constellation • Tetherless World started in 2007 • Originally aimed at robots and mobility • Now focused on "beyond the Web" computing • Now focused on Semantic eScience • Affiliate Program Started • Fujitsu Labs of America, Lockheed Martin ATL • Significant joint work with MIT CSAIL DIG Group • Joint grants • Joint (no cost) appts • Creating new courses • Semantic Web (F/07) • Web Science (S/08) • Semantic eScience (F/08)

  4. Leaders in Semantic Web • Berners-Lee, Hendler, Lassila, 2001 • > 5000 citations in 5 years • Hendler DARPA PM for "DAML" program, McGuinness seedling developer and major fundee • Hendler Chaired "Web Ontology Working Group", McGuinness key player and author of several key documents • Several highly cited coauthorships • Work w/industry in and out of W3C • "Web 3.0" startups • Leaders in research community • Both have chaired major conferences in AI, Sem Web, KR, etc.; Hendler is VP, McGuinness Board member of Semantic Web Science Association • > 200 papers in area from Md and Stanford • Significant Govt consulting/contracting/reporting in Sem Web Area • Natl Academy, Air Force Science Board, DTO/iARPA • Both hold clearances, do classified consulting • Hendler helped form US Govt Knowledge Sharing Sig

  5. Lots going on • Semantic (Web) technology companies starting & growing • Siderean, SandPiper, SiberLogic, Ontology Works, Intellidimension, Intellisophic, TopQuadrant, Data Grid, Mondeca, ontoPrise… • Web 3.0 new buzzword: Metaweb, RadarNetworks, Garlik, Joost, Talis, … • Bigger players buying in • Adobe, Cisco, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, Sun, Vodaphone… announcements/use in 2007 • Gartner identifies Corporate Semantic Web as one of three "High impact" Web technologies • Tool market forming: AllegroGraph, Altova, TopBraid, … • Government projects in and across agencies • US, UK, EU, Japan, Korea, China, India… • Several "verticals" looking into Sem Web adoption • Health Care and Life Sciences • Interest Group at W3C • Financial services • Sciences other than Life Science • Virtual observatory, Geo ontology, … • Many open source tools available • Kowari, RDFLib, Jena, Sesame, Protégé, SWOOP, Pellet, Onto(xxx), Wilbur, …

  6. Digital asset management Semantic Web portals Semantic Web and social networking Ontology editors (and other tools)

  9. Figure 1: The Web presents new challenges to software engineering and application development. Web Science • The features that make the web work • The threats of fragmentation • The macro from the micro • How to incorporate semantics • How to exploit statistics • How to build services • How to instill trust, resilience and dependability Berners-Lee Lovelace Lecture 07 The original version

  10. Tetherless World/Web • The pervasive, mobile. Information rich and ubiquitous Web, requires Web Science • Info beyond the desktop (tetherless) • Understanding the Web as a network at all scales • Below the Web graph • Powerlaws to people • Social Machines • Engineer the Future of the Web • Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 necessary, but not sufficient… • Policy Aware Computing • End to end semantic accountability • Privacy protection • Security needs • Intellectual property rights (and wrongs)
