This massive slide presentation covers a LOT of ground, including. It begins with the benefits of using RDF, RDFS/OWL entailment rules and how they can be used for inferencing, and a thorough discussion of the OWL language and its flavors. The next section covers the SPARQL query language , discussing its basic features and how it compares to SQL. Moving on, the next few sections cover semantic repositories as well as bench-marking and scalability. Then, the use of MapReduce for massively distributed RDF materialization is discussed, followed by RDBMS-to-RDF mapping approaches and tools. Finally, various RDF tools (including ontology editors, RDF-izers, and RDF APIs) are presented.
