|Advancing Information Management through Semantic Web Concepts and Ontologies
Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos, Héctor Oscar Nigro, Robert D. Tennyson, Sandra Elizabeth Gonzalez Cisaro, Waldemar Karwowski.
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...
Cases on Open-Linked Data and Semantic Web Applications
Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos, Miltiadis D. Lytras, Robert D. Tennyson, José Emilio Labra Gayo.
With the purpose of building upon standard web technologies, open linked data serves as a useful way to connect previously unrelated data and to publish structured data on the web. The application of these elements leads to the creation of data commons called semantic web. Cases on Open-Linked Data and...
Semantic Web: Ontology and Knowledge Base Enabled Tools, Services, and Applications
Semantic web continues to be an increasingly important system for allowing end-users to share and communicate information online. Semantic Web: Ontology and Knowledge Base Enabled Tools, Services and Application focuses on the information systems discipline and the tools and techniques utilized for the...
Providing Information from Brazilian Politicians Using Linked Data
Jairo Francisco de Souza, Sean Wolfgand M. Siqueira, Lucas de Ramos Araújo, Rubens Nascimento Melo.
Since its inception, the Web has undergone continuous evolution in order to improve itself as a means of global communication and information sharing. Open Government Data are increasingly being published on the Web, contributing to the transparency and the reusability of public data. At the same time...
A Semantic Framework for Touristic Information Systems
Salvador Lima, José Moreira.
The Web is a crucial means for the dissemination of touristic information. However, most touristic information resources are stored directly in Web pages or in relational databases that are accessible through ad-hoc Web applications, and the use of automated processes to search, extract and interpret...
Semi-Automatic Knowledge Extraction to Enrich Open Linked Data
Elena Baralis, Giulia Bruno, Tania Cerquitelli, Silvia Chiusano, Alessandro Fiori, Alberto Grand.
In this chapter we present the analysis of the Wikipedia collection by means of the ELiDa framework with the aim of enriching linked data. ELiDa is based on association rule mining, an exploratory technique to discover relevant correlations hidden in the analyzed data. To compactly store the large...
Variables Performance for E-Services Acceptance: A Descriptive Statistical Analysis
This case study examines the Web Electronic Service framework for a University in Australia. The department is in the process of developing and implementing a Web-based e-service system. The user experience to use e-services requires insight into the attributes that shape the experience variable. The...
News Trends Processing Using Open Linked Data
Antonio Garrote, María N. Moreno García.
In this chapter we describe a news trends detection system built with the aim of detecting daily trends in a big collection of news articles extracted from the web and expose the computed trends data as open linked data that can be consumed by other components of the IT infrastructure. Due to the sheer...
Semantic Technologies for Business and Information Systems Engineering: Concepts and Applications
Stefan Smolnik, Frank Teuteberg, Oliver Thomas.
There are increasing opportunities to consider the application of semantic technologies for business information systems. Semantic technologies are expected to improve business processes and information systems, and lead to savings in cost and time as well as improved efficiency. Semantic Technologies...

Streamlining Semantic Integration Systems
Yannis Kalfoglou, Bo Hu.
Yannis Kalfoglou and Bo Hu argue for the use of a streamlined approach to integrate semantic integration systems. The authors elaborate on the abundance and diversity of semantic integration solutions and how this impairs strict engineering practice and ease of application. The versatile and dynamic...
XAR: An Integrated Framework for Semantic Extraction and Annotation
Naveen Ashish, Sharad Mehrotra.
The authors present the XAR framework that allows for free text information extraction and semantic annotation. The language underpinning XAR, the authors argue, allows for the inclusion of probabilistic reasoning with the rule language, provides higher level predicates capturing text features and...
