A semantic web primer

  title={A semantic web primer},
  author={Grigoris Antoniou and F. V. Harmelen},
The development of the Semantic Web, with machine-readable content, has the potential to revolutionize the World Wide Web and its uses. A Semantic Web Primer provides an introduction and guide to this continuously evolving field, describing its key ideas, languages, and technologies. Suitable for use as a textbook or for independent study by professionals, it concentrates on undergraduate-level fundamental concepts and techniques that will enable readers to proceed with building applications on… 

A grammar based approach to introduce the Semantic Web to novice users

An easy-to-use system that helps users create simple RDF documents and construct a small-scale Semantic Web like environment is built and experimental results indicated that non-expert users could have a concrete image about theSemantic Web even without knowing the technical details because they understood what is meant by representing information in a machine understandable way.

The Semantic Web and Its Applications

The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.

The proposed approach will first identify taxonomic relations to start building an ontology and then enhance the ontology by enrichment and refinement, which has been evaluated on several domains and indicates that the approach is effective.

Music domain ontology applications for intelligent web searching

This work develops anontology of Argentinean music, which is an explicit speci¯cation of a conceptualization that includes machine-interpretable de¯nitions of basic concepts in the domain and relations among them.


Methods that allow end-users to view ontology-based knowledge representations of the Semantic Web in the form of automatically generated texts in multiple natural languages are considered.

A Study on Semantic Web Languages and Technologies

The overview of web languages and technologies used now-a-days in present era is given and the language used should be a natural language so that users find it comfortable to deal with any web pages or Applications.

Discovering interesting information with advances in web technology

The goal is to show that all these areas of Web technology can be as useful for knowledge discovery as the HTML-based part of the Web.

Semantic Web & Relative Analysis of Inference Engines

This paper is a study work & survey, which demonstrates a comparison of different type of inference engines in context of semantic web, to distinguish among different inference engines which may be helpful to judge the various proposed prototype systems with different views on what an inference engine for the semantic web should do.

SPARQL Semantics and Execution Analysis in Semantic Web Using Various Tools

This paper focuses on role and usage of SPARQL along with illustrations, a comparison of SParQL with SQL and an execution analysis ofSPARQL with some tools.

Automatic extraction of logically consistent ontologies from text corpora

This work presents a novel method for developing patterns based on the use of alignments between patterns, which can efficiently solve a novel NP-hard optimisation problem and form a consistent ontology by finding the network closest to the relation extraction system’s output, which is consistent with these restrictions.

Owl web ontology language guide

This document demonstrates the use of the OWL language to formalize a domain by defining classes and properties of those classes, define individuals and assert properties about them, and reason about these classes and individuals to the degree permitted by the formal semantics of theOWL language.

OWL Web ontology language overview

This document provides an introduction to OWL by informally describing the features of each of the sublanguages of OWL, the Web Ontology Language by providing additional vocabulary along with a formal semantics.

Reviewing the design of DAML+OIL: an ontology language for the semantic web

DAML+OIL's relation with its key ingredients is reviewed, the design decisions and trade-offs that were the basis for the language definition are discussed, and a number of implementation challenges posed by the current language are identified.

Enabling knowledge representation on the Web by extending RDF schema

It is shown how RDFS can be extended to include a more expressive knowledge representation language, Ontology Inference Layer (OIL), which would enrich it with the required additional expressivity and the semantics of that language.

Professional Xml Meta Data

From the Publisher: This book is for developers who are familiar with basic XML concepts and are seeking new methods for building data/process descriptions, resource discovery/retrieval, and

SEAL: a framework for developing SEmantic PortALs

This paper develops a domain-independent approach for developing semantic portals, viz.

Learning of Ontologies from the Web: the Analysis of Existent Approaches

The requirements for machine learning algorithms to be applied for the learning of the ontologies of each type from the Web documents are discussed, and the existent ontology learning and other closely related approaches are surveyed.

Learning to map between ontologies on the semantic web

Glue is described, a system that employs machine learning techniques to find semantic mappings between ontologies and is distinguished in that it works with a variety of well-defined similarity notions and that it efficiently incorporates multiple types of knowledge.

The Semantic Web: The Roles of XML and RDF

It is argued that a further representation and inference layer is needed on top of the Web's current layers, and to establish such a layer, a general method for encoding ontology representation languages into RDF/RDF schema is proposed.

Towards the Semantic Web: Ontology-driven Knowledge Management

From the Publisher: "Towards the Semantic Web focuses on the application of Semantic Web technology and ontologies in particular to electronically available information to improve the quality of
