The Talis Platform: A Generic Infrastructure for Next Generation Web Applications
This event took place on Wednesday 13 February 2008 at 11:30
The Talis Platform provides a generic infrastructure for building data-rich Web and Semantic Web applications. By taking care of the "heavy lifting" associated with data management and storage, developers are freed up to concentrate on building applications using the Platform's APIs and services. In this presentation I will outline the problems the Platform is attempting to solve, describe the principles on which our approach is based, and ground these in trends such as "Software as a Service". The capabilities of the Platform will be illustrated through demos of Platform services for mashing up heterogeneous data and providing faceted querying over data sets. I'll wrap up the talk by describing how members of the audience can use the Platform to support their own applications, and help shape its future development.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
