A Query and Inference Service for RDF

Description:
Abstract: 'The creation of RDF raises the prospect of a widely accepted standard for representing expressive declarative knowledge on the Web. However, just representing knowledge and information is not enough: users as well as information agents have to query and use the data in several ways. An RDF Query specification would allow a range of applications to exploit any information source which can be represented in terms of the RDF data model. This paper describes some existing techniques used in logic program evaluation and discusses the way in which the RDF data model relates to this framework.'

The original WWW proposal, "Information Management: A Proposal"

Description:
This is an HTML version of the original March 1989 proposal that gave rise to the World Wide Web. It includes a number of ideas very closely related to those formalised as RDF some time later. Specifically, it proposes a directed, labelled graph model with link and node types that encompass metadata applications in addition to providing for simpler document linking.
