    As researchers continue to create new languages in the hope of developing a Semantic Web, they still lack consensus on a standard. The authors describe how Protege-2000, a tool for ontology development and knowledge acquisition, can be adapted for editing models in different Semantic Web languages. View full abstract»

    Languages for representing data and knowledge are an important aspect of the Semantic Web, and there are a lot of languages around! Most languages are based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) or use XML as syntax; some have connections to RDF (Resource Description Framework) or RDF schemas. This tutorial briefly introduces XML, XML schemas, RDF and RDF schemas. View full abstract»

    Without semantically enriched content, the Web cannot reach its full potential. The authors discuss tools and techniques for generating and processing such content, thus setting a foundation upon which to build the Semantic Web. The authors put a Semantic Web language through its paces and answer questions about how people can use it, such as: how do authors generate semantic descriptions; how do ... View full abstract»

    The authors propose the markup of Web services in the DAML family of Semantic Web markup languages. This markup enables a wide variety of agent technologies for automated Web service discovery, execution, composition and interoperation. The authors present one such technology for automated Web service composition. View full abstract»

    KISS Institute's Botball program is a national program, designed for middle and high school students, that uses the activities of robot building and programming to engage students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Botball puts robotics equipment into schools, then trains students and teachers in that equipment's use. The program is organized into spring regional tournaments and ... View full abstract»

    The concept of colonizing Mars has lit the imagination of sci-fi novelists, B-movie makers, and wild-eyed dreamers for generations. Such people have typically envisioned the colonizers as brave men and women out to create a fresh start for an imperilled human race. Now, however, a project at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory proposes colonization by a less animated group of actors, one that might l... View full abstract»

  • OIL: an ontology infrastructure for the Semantic Web

    Researchers in artificial intelligence first developed ontologies to facilitate knowledge sharing and reuse. Ontologies play a major role in supporting information exchange across various networks. A prerequisite for such a role is the development of a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies. The authors present OIL, a proposal for such a standard. Ontologies applied to the World W... View full abstract»

    The Semantic Web relies heavily on formal ontologies to structure data for comprehensive and transportable machine understanding. Thus, the proliferation of ontologies factors largely in the Semantic Web's success. The authors present an ontology learning framework that extends typical ontology engineering environments by using semiautomatic ontology construction tools. The framework encompasses o...

    Many challenges of bringing communicating multi-agent systems to the World Wide Web require ontologies. The integration of agent technology and ontologies could significantly affect the use of Web services and the ability to extend programs to perform tasks for users more efficiently and with less human intervention.

    The author briefly describes some of the Jini networking system's features and attempts to show how this system's assumptions differ from those used to construct other distributed system frameworks. The author then characterizes mobile agent systems, showing such system's intrinsic differences from Jini and some of their basic problems. Finally, he discusses how agent systems could use the Jini sy... View full abstract»

    When you've visited someone in a large apartment or office complex, chances are that a security guard in the lobby granted you access. Perhaps over time, the guard has learned to associate you with the person you plan to visit and immediately notifies that person over the building intercom when you arrive. Argus, named after the vigilant watchman from Greek mythology, is an automated version of su... View full abstract»
