Semantic Web Technologies: Trends and Research in Ontology-based Systems

Buy
The Semantic Web combines the descriptive languages RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language), with the data-centric, customizable XML (eXtensible Mark-up Language) to provide descriptions of the content of Web documents. These machine-interpretable descriptions allow more intelligent software systems to be written, automating the analysis and exploitation of web-based information.

Software agents will be able to create automatically new services from already published services, with potentially huge implications for models of e-Business.

Semantic Web Technologies provides a comprehensive overview of key semantic knowledge technologies and research.   The authors explain (semi-)automatic ontology generation and metadata extraction in depth, along with ontology management and mediation. Further chapters examine how Semantic Web technology is being applied in knowledge management (“Semantic Information Access”) and in the next generation of Web services.

Semantic Web Technologies:

  • Provides a comprehensive exposition of the state-of-the art in Semantic Web research and key technologies.
  • Explains the use of ontologies and metadata to achieve machine-interpretability.
  • Describes methods for ontology learning and metadata generation.
  • Discusses ontology management and evolution, covering ontology change detection and propagation, ontology dependency and mediation.
  • Illustrates the theoretical concepts with three case studies on industrial applications in digital libraries, the legal sector and the telecommunication industry.

Graduate and advanced undergraduate students, academic and industrial researchers in the field will all find Semantic Web Technologies an essential guide to the technologies of the Semantic Web.

About the Author
Dr John Davies leads the Next Generation Web research group at BT. Current interests focus on the application of semantic web technology to knowledge management and semantic web services. John is industrial chair of the Semantic Web Services Initiative, co-organiser of the European Semantic Web Conference series and Project Director of the SEKT EU integrated project (Semantically-Enabled Knowledge Technologies).  He has written and edited many papers and books in related areas.

Rudi Studer is Professor at Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods, University of Karlsruhe.  His research spans the fields of business intelligence, e-learning, knowledge discovery and management, ontology-based knowledge management systems and the semantic web.  He has authored numerous journal and conference papers on these topics.

Paul Warren works in BT's Next Generation Web research group, where he is SEKT project manager and also responsible for the project's exploitation strategy.   Paul has published widely on technology management, technology foresight, and recently the application of the Semantic Web.

Querying Moving Objects Detected by Sensor Networks (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)
Querying Moving Objects Detected by Sensor Networks (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)

Declarative query interfaces to Sensor Networks (SN) have become a commodity. These interfaces allow access to SN deployed for collecting data using relational queries. However, SN are not confined to data collection, but may track object movement, e.g., wildlife observation or traffic monitoring. While rational approaches are well suited for...

Quantitative Assessment of Securitisation Deals (SpringerBriefs in Finance)
Quantitative Assessment of Securitisation Deals (SpringerBriefs in Finance)
Securitisation deals have come to the fore during recent years owing to the challenges involved in their assessment and their role in the recent credit crises. These deals are created by the pooling of assets and the tranching of liabilities. The latter is backed by collateral pools. Tranching makes it possible to create liabilities...

Programming Groovy: Dynamic Productivity for the Java Developer (Pragmatic Programmers)
Programming Groovy: Dynamic Productivity for the Java Developer (Pragmatic Programmers)
The strength of Java is no longer in the language itself; it's in the Java Platform (the JVM, JDK, and rich frameworks and libraries). But recently, the industry has turned to dynamic languages for increased productivity and speed to market.

Groovy is one of a new breed of dynamic languages that run on the Java platform. You can use these new...

The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Finding and Exploiting Security Flaws

This book is a practical guide to discovering and exploiting security flaws in web applications. By “web applications” we mean those that are accessed using a web browser to communicate with a web server. We examine a wide variety of different technologies, such as databases, file systems, and web services, but only in the context...
