Like in real-life, computers interact in complex interconnected ecosystems, where each element of the system can constrain the behavior of many others. Data is fast, changes often & is in motion. Data & application behavior & enhancements are often tightly coupled, consequently its hard to change either independently.

Semantic technologies attempt to solve this by decoupling applications from data by use of an abstract model for knowledge representation, releasing the mutual constraints on applications & the data consumed, allowing the developer to focus on the behavior of the application rather than on data processing.

Representing the expression & meaning of unstructured data is hard. Both NOSQL or SQL databases have opaque or rigid schema limitations. Enhancing existing tables or combining data across collections is difficult, & more often than not data is only useful once processed & manipulated by code in the application itself.

In this meetup, you will learn...

- The mechanics of a microservice [1] that consumes semantic data deployed on RedHat Kubernetes OpenShift
- How Semantic data allows users to combine data in new ways & allows users to make connections & relationships that were previously hidden like plotting crime statistics on a map or finding nearby restaurants within walking distance of a movie you want watch.
- How to combine & query semantic data with SPARQL or Prolog to extract useful facts. For example, list all dinosaurs that eat plants.
