VICINITY project at “EnWoT - The first International Workshop on Engineering the Web of Things”, organised by researchers at Politecnico de Bari, Italy
UPM (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid) made a presentation about the accepted paper “Semantic Discovery in the Web of Things” introducing the VICINITY approach for semantic discovery, two of the three ontologies developed within the project (the WoT ontology and the Mappings ontology) and an example of how to use them.
Take-aways from the workshop include:
- Need to define security aspects in the ontology, there are other projects and organizations that are interested on that part of the model.
- VICINITY is one of the few projects in which ontologies are being published according to the best practices and providing human readable information and examples.
