Activities such as Web Services and the Semantic Web are working to create a web of distributed machine understandable data. In this paper we present an application called 'Semantic Search' which is built on these supporting technologies and is designed to improve traditional web searching. We provide an overview of TAP, the application framework upon which(More)
A central theme of the Semantic Web is that programs should be able to easily aggregate data from different sources. Unfortunately, even if two sites provide their data using the same data model and vocabulary, subtle differences in their use of terms and in the assumptions they make pose challenges for aggregation. Experiences with the TAP project reveal(More)
Activities such as Web Services and the Semantic Web are working to create a distributed web of machine understandable data. We address three important problems that need to be solved to realize this vision. We discuss the problem of scalable and deployable query systems and present a simple, but general query interface called GetData. We address the issue(More)
In this paper we describe TAP, an experimental system for identifying and researching many different of the different technical issues that lie on the path to achieving the vision of the Semantic Web. In particular, we address the issues of scalable query languages, sharing vocabularies, bootstrap knowledge bases, automated extraction of RDF from text and(More)
The web lacks support for explaining information provenance. When web applications return answers, many users do not know what information sources were used, when they were updated, how reliable the source was, or what information was looked up versus derived. Support for information provenance is expected to be a harder problem in the Semantic Web where(More)
Stanford University’s Knowledge Systems Laboratory (KSL) is working in partnership with Battelle Memorial Institute and IBM Watson Research Center to develop a suite of technologies for information extraction, knowledge representation & reasoning, and human-information interaction, in unison entitled “Knowledge Associates for Novel Intelligence” (KANI). We(More)
The future Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope is an interferometer array that will use a variety of collector types, including approximately 2500 dishes distributed with separations up to a few thousand kilometres, and about 250 aperture array (AA) stations located within 200 km of the core. The data rates associated with each individual collector(More)
