Around the room

Outstanding Items

Proposed: alternativeOf: An entity is alternate of another if they specialize a common Entity. specializationOf: An entity is a specialization of another if the latter is a more general entity than the former.

RETURN TO validator

Jiao prov:ends in May. TODO: where is code, TODO: Tim what is masters student doing? What code access do they have? http://tw.rpi.edu/web/project/SWaMP/WorkingGroup/PML_Validator

RETURN TO Jim Caching scenario -> mirroring

discovery of alt locs for data. bottom up, provenance use to find alternative copies. prox NOT caching, mirroring If you have client/server transcoding, the provenance assertions between the sources will be different (since the manifestations are different), we need the FRBR stack to resolve that what the doctor saw was what was sent (at the expression level). Take the introduction up a level of abstraction to broaden its impact.
