This paper takes as its premise that the web is a place of action, not just information, and that the purpose of global data is to serve human needs. The paper presents several component technologies, which together work towards a vision where many small micro-applications can be threaded together using automated assistance to enable a unified and rich interaction. These technologies include data detector technology to enable any text to become a start point of semantic interaction; annotations…

OWL Formal Ontology for the Social Structure in the OperA Meta-model

This thesis presents the OWL OperA meta-model, which is redelivered from the OperA approach description into OWL2, and OWLperettA as a plug-in for OPErettA to export the Social structure (SS) of an Organizational Model designed by Operett a into OWl2 format.

This paper proposes a semantic information model for IoT applications, named OntoIoT, which has a two-level architecture including a set of general upper ontology and flexible interfaces for different application domain ontology extensions.

Social Data: Biases, Methodological Pitfalls, and Ethical Boundaries

A framework for identifying a broad range of menaces in the research and practices around social data is presented, including biases and inaccuracies at the source of the data, but also introduced during processing.

UvA-DARE ( Digital Academic Repository ) Another take on tags ? What tags

This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.



Spreading Activation over Ontology-Based Resources: from Personal Context to Web Scale Reasoning

Methods are developed by which large external repositories, including corporate information and the web, can be linked to the user's personal ontology and thus allow automated assistance that is able to draw on the entire web of data.

Linked Data

This Synthesis lecture provides readers with a detailed technical introduction to Linked Data, including coverage of relevant aspects of Web architecture, and provides guidance and best practices on architectural approaches to publishing Linked data.

Semi-Automatic Ontology Extension Using Spreading Activation

This paper demonstrates how spreading activation improves the result by naturally integrating the mentioned methods to semi-automatically extend and refine ontologies by mining textual data from the Web sites of international online media.

Automatic information extraction from large websites

A novel approach to information extraction from websites is presented, which reconciles recent proposals for supervised wrapper induction with the more traditional field of grammar inference, and shows that, differently from other known classes, prefix mark-up languages and the associated algorithm can be practically used for information extraction purposes.

Exploiting space and location as a design framework for interactive mobile systems

A design framework consisting of taxonomies of location, mobility, population, and device awareness is described consisting of a semantic model of space for mobile systems that allows contextual information to be shared across a number of mobile devices.

Distributed cognition: toward a new foundation for human-computer interaction research

This article proposes distributed cognition as a new foundation for human-computer interaction, sketches an integrated research framework, and uses selections from earlier work to suggest how this framework can provide new opportunities in the design of digital work materials.

Tractable Reasoning and Efficient Query Answering in Description Logics: The DL-Lite Family

It is shown that, for the DLs of the DL-Lite family, the usual DL reasoning tasks are polynomial in the size of the TBox, and query answering is LogSpace in thesize of the ABox, which is the first result ofPolynomial-time data complexity for query answering over DL knowledge bases.
