ITtalks semantic web application demo (c. 2001)

February 23rd, 2006

Semantic Web research at UMBC began in 2000 when we (UMBC, JHU/APL and MIT/Sloan) were awarded a research contract under the DARPA DAML program. One theme of our award was to investigate the integration of software agents and DAML. That winter we began developing a research testbed application which was a portal with information about information technology talks. The result was the ITTALKS system, which you can see in this demo done in June 2001. We recently found it gathering dust on one of our servers and uploaded to Google Video, partly for posterity and partly to give Google Video a try.
