Web agents that work

S. Luke, J. Hendler
1997 IEEE Multimedia  
The most successful off-line agents to date have been text-indexing search engines such as Lycos or AltaVista. There are also "on-line" agents which search the Web with a query in-hand.  ...  There are "off-line" agents which gather all the information they can possibly find on the Web, then later let users query this information according to their needs.  ...  More importantly, Apple's web page can do more than just ward off prospective fruit-searchers; SHOE data can detail various facets of the company and of its web site.  ...

Mind the Web

Valentin Zacharias, Andreas Abecker, Denny Vrandecic, Imen Borgi, Simone Braun, Andreas P. Schmidt
2007 International Semantic Web Conference  
Starting from these negative observations we argue that emergent semantics and ontology maturing are more suitable approaches for dealing with ontologies on the Web.  ...  Furthermore, the main thread of reasoning research focusses on approaches that can never scale to anything similar to the Web.  ...  Emergence and Change on the Semantic Web The main thread within the Semantic Web community that deals with changing ontologies is based on the ideas of schema evolution and versioning of databases [8,  ...

Web 2.0 vs. the Semantic Web: A Philosophical Assessment

Luciano Floridi
2009 Episteme: A journal of individual and social epistemology  
In this paper, I look at the development of the so-called Semantic Web and Web 2.0 from this perspective and try to forecast their future.  ...  ABSTRACTThe paper develops some of the conclusions, reached in Floridi (2007), concerning the future developments of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and their impact on our lives.  ...  Subject and object are each identified by a Universal Resource Identifier (URI), just as used in a link on a Web page.  ...

Metcalfe's law, Web 2.0, and the Semantic Web

James Hendler, Jennifer Golbeck
2008 Journal of Web Semantics  
The power of the Web is enhanced through the network effect produced as resources link to each other with the value determined by Metcalfe's law.  ...  In this article, we discuss putting these together, with linked semantics coupled to linked social networks, to deliver a much greater effect.  ...  , but we contend they are just a start.  ...

Introduction to Semantic Web Services and Web Process Composition [chapter]

Jorge Cardoso, Amit Sheth
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper deals with two of the hottest R&D and technology areas currently associated with the Web -Web services and the Semantic Web.  ...  Systems and infrastructures are currently being developed to support Web services.  ...  We have presented how applying semantics to each of the steps in the Semantic Web Process lifecycle can help address critical issues in reuse, integration and scalability.  ...

A conceptual architecture for semantic web enabled web services

Christoph Bussler, Dieter Fensel, Alexander Maedche
2002 SIGMOD record  
Semantic Web Enabled Web Services (SWWS) will transform the web from a static collection of information into a distributed device of computation on the basis of Semantic Web technology making content within  ...  In this paper we introduce the vision of Semantic Web Enabled Web Services, describe requirements for building semantics-driven web services and sketch a first draft of a conceptual architecture for implementing  ...  It might be that a same or better-equipped laptop together with the service contract is cheaper then if both are bought separately.  ...

Taming the inaccessible web

Simon Harper, Sean Bechhofer, Darren Lunn
2006 Proceedings of the 24th annual conference on Design of communication - SIGDOC '06  
Visually impaired users are hindered in their efforts to access the largest repository of electronic information in the world, namely the World Wide Web (Web).  ...  In this way we find that we can indeed 'tame' inaccessible Web pages.  ...  Toggle Menu Toggle menus on and off to remove the need for skip links.  ...

The hidden web, XML and the Semantic Web

Fabian M. Suchanek, Aparna S. Varde, Richi Nayak, Pierre Senellart
2011 Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Extending Database Technology - EDBT/ICDT '11  
The World Wide Web no longer consists just of HTML pages. Our work sheds light on a number of trends on the Internet that go beyond simple Web pages.  ...  On the way, we also illustrate the current research avenues in these domains.  ...  Several large-scale ontologies are available online and are interlinked in the spirit of the Semantic Web.  ...

Searching the deep web

Alex Wright
2008 Communications of the ACM  
To determine the subject domain of a particular form, they fire off sample queries to develop a better sense of the content inside.  ...  The wrappers are then added to a master ontology stored in a database table.  ...

Web Ontology Language: OWL [chapter]

Grigoris Antoniou, Frank van Harmelen
2004 Handbook on Ontologies  
However, the Web Ontology Working Group of W3C 3 identified a number of characteristic use-cases for Ontologies on the Web which would require much more expressiveness than RDF and RDF Schema.  ...  In this chapter, we first describe the motivation for OWL in terms of its requirements, and the resulting non-trivial relation with RDF Schema.  ...  Figure 3 shows the graphical representation of the statement that branches are parts of trees. Below we show the ontology, with comments written using rdfs:comment.  ...

Ontology-focused crawling of Web documents

Marc Ehrig, Alexander Maedche
2003 Proceedings of the 2003 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '03
