About the book
Semantic metadata can be implemented to develop traffic from search engines, as such, metadata can provide search engines with more valuable information about the content being searched. While the modern search engines maintain their own sets of synonyms, they may not be as complete as those that can be given by a specialized publisher. The rapidly increasing volume of data available on the Web and different sources makes information retrieval a tedious and difficult task. The vision of the metadata and semantics introduces the next generation of the Web by establishing a layer of machine-understandable data, e.g., for software agents, sophisticated search engines and Web services. The success of the Semantics in Web crucially depends on the easy creation, integration, and use of semantic data.
This book shows state-of-the-art techniques that could make the metadata more “semantic”. Beyond the state-of-the-art, this book also describes open research areas and presents major current research programs in this domain.
