"The Semantic Web is a new area of research and development in the field of computer science that aims to make it easier for computers to process the huge amount of information on the Web, and indeed other large databases, by enabling them not only to read, but also to understand the information. Based on successful courses taught by the authors, and liberally sprinkled with examples and exercises, this comprehensive textbook describes not only the theoretical issues underlying the Semantic Web, but alsoalgorithms, optimisation ideas and implementation details. The book will therefore be valuable to practitioners as well as students, indeed to anyone who is interested in Internet technology, knowledge engineering or description logics. Supplementary materials available online include the source code of program examples and solutions to selected exercises"--

Enabling Collaboration on Semiformal Mathematical Knowledge by Semantic Web Integration

Mathematics is becoming increasingly collaborative, but software does not sufficiently support that: Social Web applications do not currently make mathematical knowledge accessible to automated agents that have a deeper understanding of mathematical structures. Such agents exist but focus on individual research tasks, such as authoring, publishing, peer-review, or verification, instead of complex collaboration workflows. This work effectively enables their integration by bridging the document-oriented perspective of mathematical authoring and publishing, and the network perspective of threaded discussions and Web information retrieval. This is achieved by giving existing representations of mathematical and relevant related knowledge about applications, projects and people a common Semantic Web foundation. Service integration is addressed from the two perspectives of enriching published documents by embedding assistive services, and translating between different knowledge representations inside knowledge bases. A usability evaluation of a semantic wiki that coherently integrates knowledge production and consumption services points out the remaining challenges in making such heterogeneously integrated environments support realistic workflows. The results of this thesis will soon also enable collaborative acquisition of new mathematical knowledge, as well as the contributions of existing knowledge collections of the Web of Data.

Das Buch Semantic Web – Grundlagen vermittelt als erstes deutschsprachiges Lehrbuch die Grundlagen des Semantic Web in verständlicher Weise. Es ermöglicht einen einfachen und zügigen Einstieg in Methoden und Technologien des Semantic Web und kann z.B. als solide Grundlage für die Vorbereitung und Durchführung von Vorlesungen genutzt werden. Die Autoren trennen dabei sauber zwischen einer intuitiven Hinführung zur Verwendung semantischer Technologien in der Praxis einerseits, und der Erklärung formaler und theoretischer Hintergründe andererseits. Nur für letzteres werden Grundkenntnisse in Logik vorausgesetzt, die sich bei Bedarf jedoch durch zusätzliche Lektüre und mit Hilfe eines entsprechenden Kapitels im Anhang aneignen lassen. Das Lehrbuch richtet sich primär an Studenten mit Grundkenntnissen in Informatik sowie an interessierte Praktiker welche sich im Bereich Semantic Web fortbilden möchten. Aus den Rezensionen: "... RDF, RDF-S und OWL. Diese Sprachen ... werden von den Autoren dargestellt. Bei der Darstellung ... fallen sie selten zu schwierigen Fachslang, sondern liefern eine gut nachvollziehbare Schilderung mit einfachen Beispielen, auch Übungsaufgaben runden die Kapitel ab. ... Semantic Web ist ein einfach geschriebenes und anschauliches Buch, das In die Grundkonzepte der Semantic-Web-Techniken einführt. Wer sich schnell in RDF, RDF-S und Co. einarbeiten muss und etwas Vorbildung in Logik und Algebra mitbringt, der trifft mit diesem Lehrbuch sicherlich eine gute Wahl ..."

IT's Going Global... From Shanghai to San Francisco, IT is playing an increasingly vital role in helping organizations gain the competitive advantage around the globe. That's why the Fifth Edition of "Information Technology for Management" offers a global perspective on how IT is transforming business. In this comprehensive, up-to-date Fifth Edition, Efraim Turban, Ephraim McLean, James Wetherbe, and new coauthor Dorothy Leidner present late-breaking developments in the field, as well as a new chapter on Global Interorganizational Systems. IT's About Transformation: The text focuses on how organizations operate and compete in the digital economy, and how IT can assist this transformation. The new edition also features increased strategy coverage. IT's Current: The Fifth Edition introduces new research, current examples and case studies, and updated reference materials. IT's Managerial: The text's strong managerial orientation makes IT relevant and interesting to business students. Technological topics are conveniently covered in six technology guides at the end of the text. IT's Wireless: A special chapter covers innovations and opportunities in mobile computing and the wireless revolution. IT's Hands-on: Students solve realistic IT problems when they are "hired" as interns at The Wireless Cafe, a simulated high-tech restaurant in Shanghai.
