Tonight's dessert: Semantic Web Layer Cakes
Tim Berners-Lee's "Semantic Web Layer Cake" is one of the most used figures in our field. It has changed numerous times over the years, as new technologies have come along, and as the field has changed. Despite this, it appears to be incomplete - lots happening in the field is not included. In this talk, we take a look at the layer cake as it has changed over time and see what it can tell us about current and future Semantic Web work.
