After a two months hiatus, I have just updated AI3's listing of semantic Web and -related tools to version 11; follow the links below.
This version adds 72 new tools — one of the largest additions ever — since the last update on September 16, bringing the new total to 650 tools.
Like prior versions, this new Sweet Tools listing is provided either as:
Background on prior listings and earlier statistics may be found on these previous posts:
With interim updates periodically over that period.
In thanks to Henry Story, whose chat note prompted me to post this long overdue update, I have also included some of the tools breakdowns he enjoys.
Here is a table of tools categories, showing both the last breakdown from about 9 months ago when there were 500 tools in the listing, and today with 650 tools:
|13||23||Query Language or Service|
|23||37||Browser (RDF, other)|
|22||28||Wiki- or blog-related|
|30||33||Parser or Converter|
|22||23||Wrapper (Web data extractor)|
|3||3||Description or Formal Logics|
|—||2||Rules and related|
|6||12||NOT ACTIVE (???)|
The fastest growing categories are listed first, with RDF, ontologies, and search growing the most. Note some categories have been added and others are being re-classified or delisted as time and familiarity with the listing grows. Certain areas of current interest, such as NLP, also see increased listings as a result. Of course, all such categorizations have a degree of arbitrariness.
You’ll be pleased to see, Henry, that Java is still holding serve on market share!
Note: Because of comments expirations on prior posts, this entry is now the new location for adding a suggested new tool. Simply provide your information in the comments section, and your tool will be included in the next update. (Hopefully, that will not take another two months!)
