We make the measurability of our R&D results one of our primary tasks. We want to show to the world that semantic technologies are becoming reality. Find out more about our results and our spin-off companies.

A Minimal Triple Space Computing Architecture

The visionary approach of Triple Space Computing was recently introduced based on the insight that Web Services do not follow the Web paradigm of ‘persistently publish and read’ [Fensel, 2004]. Instead, Web Services currently require a synchronous connection to transmit data transparently bypassing and ignoring the power of the Web paradigm. Triple Space Computing proposes to publish communication data analogous to the publication of Web pages: persistently for anybody to read who has access to it at any point in time. This has several benefits. The provider of data can publish it at any point in time (time autonomy), independent of its internal storage (location autonomy), independent of the knowledge about potential readers (reference autonomy) and independent of its internal data schema (schema autonomy). This article introduces a minimal Internet-scalable Triple Space Computing architecture based on Semantic Web technology that implements these four types of autonomy in the simplest way possible with as minimal functionality as feasible to be useful with no or almost no impact to publishers and reader of communication data.
