Extending faceted navigation for RDF data
Data on the Semantic Web is semi-structured and does not, follow one fixed schema. Faceted browsing is a natural technique, for navigating such data, partitioning the information space into orthogonal conceptual dimensions. The document develops an, expressive faceted interface for semi-structured data, then develops metrics, for automatic ranking of facet quality, bypassing the need for manual, construction of the interface. A prototype for faceted navigation of arbitrary RDF data.

Query + Metadata + Logic = Metalog
A paper on a querying language, Metalog, which allows users to write inference rules and queries in English-like syntax. Shows how these reasoning rules have equivalent representation both as RDF descriptions and as logic programs. (December 05, 1998)
