Presents the latest research on both Semantic Web and Web 2.0
The first consideration of using other technologies to further Web 2.0 and Semantic Web growth
The first volume to look at matching Semantic Web technology to existing Web 2.0 applications
Web 2.0 describes the trend in Web technology and design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, especially, collaboration among users. Semantic Web refers to the intelligent interaction among systems and applications on the Web by deploying ontologies, semantic annotation of Web content, and reasoning. Its ultimate goal is to make data understandable to computers, and thus open to far greater utility and manipulation.
This special issue of AoIS presents cutting-edge research on both of these often opposed trends in computing and will support discussion on both the synergies and controversies inherent in the two technologies, while also considering what other technologies can contribute to both. Dramatic advances in service-oriented architectures, model-driven engineering, and Web mining technologies are but a few of the developments that might have a considerable impact on both Web 2.0 and Semantic Web, and they will all be covered in this volume.
