Abstract:

The development of the Semantic Web, with machine-readable content,
has the potential to revolutionize the World Wide Web and its
use. emantic Web Primer provides an introduction and guide to this
emerging field, describing its key ideas, languages, and
technologies. Suitable for use as a textbook or for self-study by
professionals, it concentrates on undergraduate-level fundamental
concepts and techniques that will enable readers to proceed with
building applications on their own. It includes exercises, project
descriptions, and annotated references to relevant online
materials. emantic Web Primer is the only available book on the
Semantic Web to include a systematic treatment of the different
languages (XML, RDF, OWL, and rules) and technologies (explicit
metadata, ontologies, and logic and inference) that are central to
Semantic Web development. The book also examines such crucial related
topics as ontology engineering and application scenarios.

After an introductory chapter, topics covered in succeeding chapters
include XML and related technologies that support semantic
interoperability; RDF and RDF Schema, the standard data model for
machine-processable semantics; and OWL, the W3C-approved standard for
a Web ontology language more extensive than RDF Schema; rules, both
monotonic and nonmonotonic, in the framework of the Semantic Web;
selected application domains and how the Semantic Web would benefit
them; the development of ontology-based systems; and current debates
on key issues and predictions for the future.

Grigoris Antoniou is Professor at the Institute for Computer Science,
FORTH (Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas), Heraklion,
Greece. Frank van Harmelen is Professor in the Department of
Artificial Intelligence at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, the
Netherlands.
