Using a Natural Language Understanding System to Generate Semantic Web Content
(IGI Global, 2007-11-01)
We describe our research on automatically generating rich semantic annotations of text and making it available on the Semantic Web. In particular, we discuss the challenges involved in adapting the OntoSem natural language ...
RDF123: a mechanism to transform spreadsheets to RDF
We describe RDF123, a highly flexible open-source tool for transforming spreadsheet data to RDF. Existing spreadsheet-to-RDF tools typically map only to star-shaped RDF graphs, i.e. each spreadsheet row is an instance, ...
Using the Semantic Web to Support Ecoinformatics
We describe our on-going work in using the semantic web in support of ecological informatics, and demonstrate a distributed platform for constructing end-to-end use cases. Specifically, we describe ELVIS (the Ecosystem ...
Swoogle: Searching for knowledge on the Semantic Web
Swoogle is an implemented system that discovers, analyzes and indexes knowledge encoded in semantic web documents on the Web. Swoogle reasons about these documents and their constituent parts (e.g., terms and triples) and ...
Semantic Analytics on Social Networks: Experiences in Addressing the Problem of Conflict of Interest Detection
In this paper, we describe a Semantic Web application that detects Conflict of Interest relationships among potential reviewers and authors of scientific papers. This application discovers various "semantic associations" ...
Tracking RDF Graph Provenance using RDF Molecules
The Semantic Web facilitates integrating partial knowledge and finding evidence for hypothesis from web knowledge sources. However, the appropriate level of granularity for tracking provenance of RDF graph remains in debate. ...
Analyzing Social Networks on the Semantic Web
We report on a recent study of the way FOAF and other semantic web ontologies are being used to describe people and their social relations.
A Pervasive Computing Ontology for User Privacy Protection in the Context Broker Architecture
Privacy protection is a key requirement for the future pervasive computing systems. This paper describes the design and implementation of a privacy protection framework that exploits the SOUPA policy ontology and its ...
Semantic Web in in the Context Broker Architecture
This document describes a new architecture that exploits Semantic Web technologies for supporting pervasive context-aware systems. This architecture called Context Broker Architecture (CoBrA) differs from other architectures ...
A Personal Agent Application for the Semantic Web
The Semantic Web is a vision to simplify and improve knowledge reuse on the Web. It is all set to alter the way humans benefit from the web from active interaction to somewhat passive utilization through the proliferation ...
