— A cyber world (CW) is a digitized world created on cyberspaces inside computers interconnected by networks including the Internet. a smart world (SW) created on both cyberspaces and real spaces. It is mainly characterized by ubiquitous intelligence or computational intelligence pervasion in the physical world filled with smart things. In recent years,… (More)
In the ubicomp/percomp era, more ubiquitous computation/information/service would be the main driving force, and the corresponding essential element would be the various smart/intelligent ubiquitous things or u-things with attached/embedded/blended computers. Based on the soon available ubiquitous networking infrastructures and services, such ordinary… (More)
Tailoring large ontologies can be a very cumbersome task. The Grid enables resource sharing to handle such tasks over a distributed environment. It makes sense then, to investigate the possibility of using resources on the Grid to tailor large Ontologies. This paper proposes a distributed ontology framework for tailoring ontologies in the Grid.
