Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL

By Dean Allemang, James Hendler

The promise of the Semantic internet to supply a common medium to replace facts info and information has been good publicized. there are various resources too for uncomplicated details at the extensions to the WWW that let content material to be expressed in usual language but utilized by software program brokers to simply locate, proportion and combine details. formerly contributors engaged in growing ontologies-- formal descriptions of the techniques, phrases, and relationships inside of a given wisdom domain-- have had no assets past the technical criteria files.

Semantic internet for the operating Ontologist transforms this data into the sensible wisdom that programmers and topic area specialists want. Authors Allemang and Hendler start with options to the elemental difficulties, yet don’t cease there: they show find out how to boost your personal suggestions to difficulties of accelerating complexity and make sure that your talents will preserve speed with the ongoing evolution of the Semantic net.

• offers sensible details for all programmers and material specialists engaged in modeling info to slot the necessities of the Semantic Web.
• De-emphasizes algorithms and proofs, focusing as an alternative on real-world difficulties, artistic options, and hugely illustrative examples.
• offers unique, ready-to-apply “recipes” to be used in lots of particular situations.
• indicates how you can create new recipes from RDF, RDFS, and OWL constructs.

The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles

By Noam Nisan, Shimon Schocken

In the early days of machine technological know-how, the interactions of undefined, software program, compilers, and working process have been basic sufficient to permit scholars to determine an total photograph of ways desktops labored. With the expanding complexity of laptop know-how and the ensuing specialization of data, such readability is usually misplaced. in contrast to different texts that hide just one point of the sector, The components of Computing Systems offers scholars an built-in and rigorous photo of utilized desktop technology, as its involves play within the building of an easy but robust desktop system.

Indeed, the right way to know how desktops paintings is to construct one from scratch, and this textbook leads scholars via twelve chapters and tasks that gently construct a simple platform and a contemporary software program hierarchy from the floor up. within the approach, the scholars achieve hands-on wisdom of structure, working structures, programming languages, compilers, information buildings, algorithms, and software program engineering. utilizing this confident method, the e-book exposes an important physique of desktop technology wisdom and demonstrates how theoretical and utilized innovations taught in different classes healthy into the final picture.

Designed to aid one- or two-semester classes, the booklet is predicated on an abstraction-implementation paradigm; every one bankruptcy provides a key or software program abstraction, a proposed implementation that makes it concrete, and an exact venture. The rising computing device procedure could be outfitted by means of following the chapters, even though this can be just one alternative, because the tasks are self-contained and will be performed or skipped in any order. the entire desktop technology wisdom worthwhile for finishing the initiatives is embedded within the e-book, the single pre-requisite being a programming experience.The book's website presents all instruments and fabrics essential to construct all of the and software program structures defined within the textual content, together with 2 hundred try courses for the twelve initiatives. The initiatives and structures should be changed to fulfill numerous educating wishes, and the entire provided software program is open-source.

IPv6 Network Administration

By Niall Richard Murphy, David Malone

What as soon as appeared approximately most unlikely has become fact. The variety of to be had net addresses is now approximately exhausted, due generally to the explosion of business web content and entries from an increasing variety of nations. This starting to be scarcity has successfully placed the web community--and a few of its such a lot amazing engineers--on alert for the final decade.Their resolution used to be to create IPv6, a brand new net average with a purpose to eventually exchange the present and antiquated IPv4. because the new spine of the net, this new protocol might repair the main tricky difficulties that the net faces today--scalability and administration. or even notwithstanding IPv6's implementation has met with a few resistance during the last few years, all indicators are actually pointing to its sluggish world wide adoption within the very close to destiny. eventually, all community directors might want to comprehend IPv6, and now could be a great time to get started.IPv6 community management bargains directors the full within details on IPv6. This ebook finds the various advantages in addition to the capability downsides of this next-generation protocol. It additionally exhibits readers precisely tips on how to manage and administer an IPv6 network.A must-have for community directors far and wide, IPv6 community management promises an even-handed method of what is going to be the main primary switch to the web seeing that its inception. a number of the different IPv6 resources which are coated include:routingintegrated auto-configurationquality-of-services (QoS)enhanced mobilityend-to-end securityIPv6 community management explains what works, what doesn't, and so much of all, what's useful while contemplating upgrading networks from the present protocol to IPv6.
