This conference was held at the Keio University in Tokyo. Prof. Hideaki Takeda gave his invited talk titled “Ontology for People — Vagueness and multiplicity”. He talked about how conceptualizations are naturally vague and essentially lead to multiple concept definitions depending on the user’s perspective. He introduced my work, StYLiD, as a system to consider with such vagueness and multiplicity 🙂

It is interesting that Freebase is making Wikipedia data available in machine readable XML form and promise to keep it updated. I hope it will be useful.
This is an interesting work to utilize microformats and RDFa. Besides visualizing the embedded metadata it would be useful to offer structured forms to search arbitrary metadata formats. I am also using RDFa for my ongoing work, StYLiD. Hope I can microsearch data in my system with this. I am also looking forward to social software tools being available for anyone to author embedded metadata easily.
