We will have a telcon on Dec 12. Dec 19 telcon TBD
<AxelPolleres> I would not be able to attend on either 12 or 19
First 2 action items done!
Satya: I have incorporated Sebastian's comments
Juan: Shd we comment on the paper or the Wiki?
Ashok: Set a deadline for comments, say early Jan\
Satya: I will send out email.
Juan: When does this group finish?
... Please read Proposed Recommendation
Axel: RIF syntax is not
... Open to alternate syntax
... We can also add extensions
Ashok: Please look at proposed recommendation and see what you want to add
<scribe> ACTION: Axel to propose changes to recommendation to use RIF. By X'mas. Discuss on Jan 8 Telcon [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2008/12/05-RDB2RDF-minutes.html#action01]
Themis discusses OKKAM work
<AxelPolleres> Is there a link for ENS?
<AxelPolleres> So, it is not yet there... I suggest then to reword "The Entity Name System (ENS) is a web-scale system for assigning and managing unique identifiers to entities in the WWW" to "The Entity Name System (ENS) is a planned web-scale system for assigning and managing unique identifiers to entities in the WWW that is worked upon in the OKKAM project."
Ashok: How do you find URIs in this database?
Themis: It's like a web search
Ashok: Looks like it requires a human being?
Themis: No, not always
Axel: How far is this ENS
... It's a good idea
Themis: We have a prototype with all the geolocations, people, etc.
We are adding protien identifiers.
Expect a public prototype early next year
Ahmed: Asks about primary key
Themis: Not a close relation with
... Need to formulate a query with relevant information
Juan: If you get more than 1 result what do you do?
Themis: Needs human intervention. We have some ideas for resolving such conflicts
<AxelPolleres> Except best practices, what is it what you aim at standardising here at this point? I believe in ENS being a useful tool here, but how does it fit in a standardised RDB2RDF pipeline, i.e. what is the action/potential for W3C in general and RDB2RDF in particular at this point?
Ashok: Good question, Axel!
I see it as a facility that can be used as part of the mapping process.
I do not see it as part of the standard
<AxelPolleres> Does it mean that RDB2RDF can generate any RDF and ENS couls be used to "repair" the generated RDF or should ENS be directly in the pipeline?
I need to think about that
Discussion about how ENs would be used in the mapping
Jenny: Another usecase
Ashok: I'm think of this as a helper function
<AxelPolleres> a helper function which could be ENS, or any other service, could be invoked in the mapping process... I think that we would only need to provide a "hook" for that.
