MusicBrainz as Information Service

This is an is:InfoService individual for MusicBrainz as proof-of-concept example. Therefore, I used also some category definitions from DBpedia (important is also the property is:main_subject for associating a main subject of an Information Service). more…

Scientific Research Interests Example

This example is originally taken from the E-foaf:interest Vocabulary Specification 0.2 (http://wiki.larkc.eu/e-foaf:interest) and was transformed to be conform with the current version of the Cognitive Characteristics Ontology. This example describes a person (here Ricardo Baeza-Yates), who is interested in (foaf:topic_interest) a specific topic (here “The World Wide Web”). This interest is described more in detail with help of a cco:CognitiveCharacteristic instance (ex:WebInterest). It has a current weight (wo:weight), a total weight (cco:overall_weight) and two attention durations – a ultimative duration (cco:ultimative_duratation) and a longest duration (cco:longest_duration). All these values can be timestamped, e.g. re. their date of modification (dcterms:modifified). A cco:CognitiveCharacteristic instance (ex:ASpecificConcext) describes the appearing of this interest in a certain context (here a specific paper). To describe the different weightings, different scales can be associated to them. more…
