    Much of the contents of popular Internet information sources are highly dynamic: urgent in nature and sometimes relevant only for a short time. The typical approach to querying such dynamic sources is polling for updates often. This strains the traditional pull-based Internet and wastes network resources on transmitting redundant information. This paper focuses on how to structure the Internet to ... View full abstract»

    In the near future, it is anticipated that enormous semantic Web metadata described in RDF will be appearing. Thus, some researches on the management for the semantic Web metadata have been proposed. In most previous approaches, the semantic Web metadata as a form of triple is stored in a large relational table. Since it always requires the whole table to be scanned for processing a query, it may ... View full abstract»
