    US military branches are undergoing a shift in the structure and missions that's designed to help them become lighter and more agile, able to move easily and quickly to hot spots. Long-range planning to prepare for modern warfare includes developing robotics for military use. For instance, the Army's Future Combat Systems program plans to make a third of its ground forces robotic within about 15 y... View full abstract»

    Ontologies have become ubiquitous in information systems. They constitute the semantic Web's backbone, facilitate e-commerce, and serve such diverse application fields as bioinformatics and medicine. As ontology development becomes increasingly widespread and collaborative, developers are creating ontologies using different tools and different languages. These ontologies cover unrelated or overlap... View full abstract»

    Once the realm of high-performance computing for scientific applications, grid computing is rising as a key enabling infrastructure for resource sharing and coordinated problem solving in dynamic multiinstitutional virtual organizations. Grids build over networking technology to provide middleware support such as locating files over a network of computers, scheduling the distributed execution of j... View full abstract»

    Specifying semantic Web services requires designing the semantic description at a conceptual level to guarantee its correctness and avoid inconsistencies. We present a framework for designing and composing semantic Web services at the knowledge level in a language-independent manner. We base our framework on a stack of ontologies that explicitly describes different semantic Web services features, ... View full abstract»

    Web Services power through explicit representations of Web resources underlying semantics and the development of an intelligent Web infrastructure that can fully exploit them. Semantic Web languages, such as OWL, extend RDF to let users specify ontologies comprising taxonomies of classes and inference rules. Both people and software agents can effectively use Semantic Web Services.' Agents will in... View full abstract»

  • Filtering and selecting semantic Web services with interactive composition techniques

    To demonstrate the utility of semantic Web service descriptions for service composition, we've developed a goal-oriented, interactive composition approach that uses matchmaking algorithms to help users filter and select services while building the composition. filtering and selecting services helps the user drive the composition process. We've implemented composition. Indeed, it is the filtering a... View full abstract»

    Web services will soon handle users' private information. They'll need to provide privacy guarantees to prevent this delicate information from ending up in the wrong hands. More generally, Web services will need to reason about their users' policies that specify who can access private information and under what conditions. These requirements are even more stringent for semantic Web services that e... View full abstract»

  • Value Webs: using ontologies to bundle real-world services

    Real-world services - that is, nonsoftware-based services - differ significantly from Web services, usually defined as software functionality accessible and configurable over the Web. Because of the economic, social, and business importance of the service concept in general, we believe it's necessary to rethink what this concept means in an ontological and computational sense. We deal about the OB... View full abstract»

    The semantic Web research community has developed ontologies and languages for semantically describing Web services. For example, OWL-S is an ontology developed using the OWL semantic Web description language. The purpose of OWL-S, formerly DAML-S, is to describe Web services so that software agents can read these descriptions and reason about how to interact with the services they describe. These...

  • Why evaluate ontology technologies? Because it works!

    We deal with two types of ontology evaluation, content evaluation and ontology technology evaluation. Evaluating content is a must for preventing applications from using inconsistent, incorrect, or redundant ontologies. It's unwise to publish an ontology that one or more software applications will use without first evaluating it. A well-evaluated ontology won't guarantee the absence of problems, b...

    Unfortunately, we can't solve transportation problems by focusing on transportation systems alone. Rather, we must consider the combined effects with other metropolitan systems. Artificial systems, based on artificial societies and agent-modeling technology, are effective tools for this purpose. Metropolitan transportation, logistics, and ecosystems are intrinsically open, dynamic, unpredictable, ... View full abstract»

    We deal about the design in human-centered computing. Problem solving often involves recognizing and fiddling with tacit assumptions. Such realization can often come from seeing things from new perspectives. Appreciating the human-centered perspective may offer some hope for enriching design's scientific foundations and for crafting new and better approaches to it. Certainly this suggests a constr...
