Knowledge Enhanced Searching on the Web

Jaffri, Afraz and Glaser, Hugh (2007) Knowledge Enhanced Searching on the Web At 6th International Semantic Web Conference Doctoral Consortium.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The move towards a Semantic Web has been in progress for many years and more recently there have been applications that make use of semantic web technology. One of the features that made the Web so easy to use is the ability to search web pages in a matter of seconds through the use of search engines. Now that the use of OWL and RDF as a knowledge representation format is increasing, the possibility appears to improve the quality of searching by using the semantic web to enhance the ‘ordinary’ Web. This paper outlines an ar-chitecture for using distributed knowledge bases to assist and improve search-ing on the web.
