Semantic and Web: The Semantic Part

Sven Groppe, Paulo Rupino da Cunha


The Web is everywhere in daily life. Business is not possible any more without the fast communication through the web. The knowledge of the humans is reflected in the information accessible in the web. New challenges occur with the flood of information and electronic possibilities for the human being. The current World Wide Web enables an easy, instant access to a vast amount of online information. However, the content in the Web is typically for human consumption, and is not tailored to be machine-processed. The Semantic Web, which is intended to establish a machine-understandable web, thereby offers a promising and potential solution to mining and analyzing web content. The Semantic Web is currently changing from an emergent trend to a technology used in complex real-world applications. This part of the special issue "Semantic and Web" especially investigates how semantic technologies can help the human being to open the new possibilities of the web. The papers, which contribute more to Web technologies, are published in Open Journal of Web Technologies (OJWT).
