The slides for my keynote at RuleFest 2011 are here.
Excellent presentations on complex event processing by Paul Vincent of TIBCO and Mauricio Salatano who showed simple, effective integration of events and rules using Drools. Mauricio’s was a good demo and Paul’s slides are worth perusing once they go on-line. (Some comments from Carlos about Paul’s, Mauricio’s, and my presentations are here, here and here, FYI.)
Christian St. Marie and Hugues Citeau each of Ilog (IBM) on improving RIF support in JRules and the worthy ONTORULE project, respectively. Both presentations confirm the gulf between production rules and sufficient logical expressiveness to support natural language or natural logic knowledge management, but IBM is clearly aware of and trying to address the challenges raised in my presentation.
