Description

Although the majority of information that is published by the current web is aimed at human consumption, the browsers which contain this information are only able to interpret HTML mark-up to visualize this content. Semantic web intends to address the stability between human and machine.

Advancing Information Management through Semantic Web Concepts and Ontologies provides an analysis and introduction on the concept of combining the areas of semantic web and web mining. Emphasizing semantics in technologies, reasoning, content searching and social media, this book aims to be an essential source for practitioners, researchers and academics alike.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative Learning
  • Digital libraries
  • Knowledge management
  • Ontology Mapping and Visualization
  • Progressive Ontologies
  • Semantic web
  • Web mining

Reviews and Testimonials

In this work for policy makers, information technology directors, and researchers, international contributors in computer science and information management come together to share new theories, research findings, and case studies on semantic web and the role of information technologies. Some specific topics discussed include multimedia systems development, enterprise tomography, semantic web data partitioning, and knowledge building in online environments. Other subjects are an ontology-based search tool on the semantic web, identifying polarized Wikipedia articles, mining sentiment using conversation ontology, and ontology-based opinion mining. The editor is affiliated with the University of Oviedo, Spain.
