An ontology is a formalist that can be used to represent knowledge, describing information as concepts and relations between these concepts. The adoption of these formalisms has increased in the last years, and are used in many fields like artificial intelligence and software engineering, or in the semantic web. Mainly in situations where relational databases (or more recently no-SQL solutions) may not be the most fit approach to store and manipulate data.

This talk introduces how ontologies can be exploited to create rich applications using Perl. How we can store information using ontologies, retrieve and update information, infer new knowledge, and produce any arbitrary side effect. Finally we do a briefly overview of an useful application created using these technologies.
