Description & Coverage
Description:

The Semantic Web has evolved as a blueprint for a knowledge-based framework aimed at crossing the chasm from the current Web of unstructured information resources to a Web equipped with metadata and oriented to delegating tasks to software agents.

Semantic Web Personalization and Context Awareness: Management of Personal Identities and Social Networking communicates relevant recent research in Semantic Web-based personalization as applied to the context of information systems. This book reviews knowledge engineering for organizational applications, and Semantic Web approaches to information systems and ontology-based information systems research, as well as the diverse underlying database and knowledge representation aspects that impact personalization and customization.

Coverage:

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

  • Agent-Based Simulation
  • Automatic summarization
  • Collaborative Filtering
  • Knowledge Engineering
  • Ontology-based user modeling
  • Semantic recommender system
  • Social and Semantic Web technologies
  • Social networking and trust
  • Standardization of virtual objects
  • Web-based information systems
Reviews and Testimonials

"The function of Semantic Web Personalization and Content Awareness is well supported by the structure I have come to associate with books from the Information Science Reference: a brief table of contents followed by a detailed table of contents giving the titles, authors, and their affiliations, as well as detailed abstracts." [...] "This is an excellent text for reference and supporting research."

– Ina Fourie, University of Pretoria, Online Information Review, Vol. 36, No. 4
