Two-phase Semantic Web Service Discovery Method for Finding Intersection Matches using Logic Programming

László Kovács, András Micsik, Peter Pallinger
2006 IEEE European Conference on Web Services  
Discovering Web Services based on logical matching of capabilities is a new requirement for Semantic Web Services which cannot be solved with traditional information retrieval (IR) techniques.  ...  The logicbased step of discovery uses a novel technique based on Prolog-style unification of terms.  ...  Acknowledgement The presented work was supported by the INFRAWEBS project funded by the European Commission.  ...

Knowledge-based Grids

Reagan Moore
2001 Mass Storage Systems and Technologies(MSS), Proceedings of the NASA Goddard Conference on  
In a knowledge-based grid, data objects are discovered by mapping from scientific domain concepts, to the attributes used within a data grid collection, to the digital objects residing in an archival storage  ...  Knowledge-based grids provide concept spaces for discovering relevant data objects.  ...  The knowledge environment must also provide access mechanisms that support discovery and retrieval of data, information, and knowledge.  ...
