To help the reader understand semantic technology, the authors provide extensive examples and background on all terms used in their definition: "Semantic technology is a dynamic enterprise capability derived from the application of special software technologies (such as reasoners, inference engines, ontologies and models) that infer, relate, interpret and classify the implicit meanings of digital content without human involvement, which in turn drive adaptive business processes, enterprise knowledge, business rules and enterprise application interoperability."
Interest in semantic technologies has accelerated since February 2004 when the World Wide Web Consortium announced final approval of the recommendation of Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the Web Ontology Language (OWL) as Semantic Web standards that provide a framework for asset management, enterprise integration and the sharing and reuse of data on the Web. This book will aid practitioners in understanding how what they've developed thus far in the way of using Internet technologies to enable global connectivity, and XML to structure data for information exchange, and web services for reusability are a foundation for what is to come.
The book can be ordered through Amazon.com via the Inner Circle zone of the Cerebra website (www.cerebra.com/products/inner_circle.html), an education and information zone for newcomers and experienced semantic technology professionals alike. The zone also features regular blogs by the book's author, Jeff Pollock.
