Omitola, Tope, Millard, Ian, Glaser, Hugh, Gibbins, Nicholas and Shadbolt, Nigel (2010) From Information to Sense-Making: Fetching and Querying Semantic Repositories In, KES 2010, Part IV, Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, volume 6279. Springer

Record type: Book Section


Information, its gathering, sharing, and storage, is growing at a very rapid rate. Information turned into knowledge leads to sense- making. Ontologies, and their representations in RDF, are increasingly being used to turn information into knowledge. This paper describes how to leverage the power of ontologies and semantic repositories to turn today’s glut of information into sense-making. This would enable better applications to be built making users’ lives easier and more effective.
