Artivity presentation at SEMANTiCS 2016

The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, and understand its benefits and know its limitations. Our highlight this year is the Artivity Presentation at the Linked Data Exposure track, held by Sebastian Faubel.

Leipzig University campus

This year’s conference is located at Leipzig University in Germany. As every year, the Semiodesk Team will be on site and we are looking forward to meeting friends and making new contacts. The conference features a very interesting conference programme with talks about effective enterprise Linked Data adoption and capturing human context in Social Media, to name just a few highlights.

On the eve of the SEMANTiCS conference, there is also a meetup where experts on Big and Linked Data gather to discuss the future agenda on research and implementation of a joint technology development.

Presenting the Artivity project

The project is a cooperation of Semiodesk and the University of the Arts, London and allows for easily recording and sharing the entire creation process of digital artwork. He will be talking about our experiences with building a cross-platform, scalable Linked Data application which captures and integrates provenance data from a variety of web browsers and digital imaging applications, including tools from the industry leading the Adobe Creative Cloud product line.

The software was build using Semiodesk Trinity, our Enterprise Linked Data platform for .NET, and is currently available as a public alpha version. At the University of the Arts we are currently in the preparation phase for large-scale distribution at the university network. The slides of the Artivity presentation will be published at SlideShare after the conference.

Introducing the Artivity ontology

In addition to the presentation of the Artivity project, the Artivity ontology has been submitted to the SEMANTiCS Vocabulary Carnival. The event is a great opportunity for us to showcase and share the vocabulary we have been developing for Artivity. The ontology consists of extensions to the W3C PROV ontology for capturing changes to the properties of entities over time. In addition, the vocabulary provides terms which are specific for the computer graphics domain which can be used for modelling shapes, viewports, canvases and bounding geometries.
