By Grigoris Antoniou, Frank van van Harmelen

The advance of the Semantic net, with machine-readable content material, has the capability to revolutionize the realm broad net and its use. A Semantic net Primer presents an advent and consultant to this rising box, describing its key principles, languages, and applied sciences. compatible to be used as a textbook or for self-study via pros, it concentrates on undergraduate-level basic techniques and strategies that would permit readers to continue with construction functions on their lonesome. It comprises routines, undertaking descriptions, and annotated references to appropriate on-line fabrics. A Semantic internet Primer is the one on hand publication at the Semantic net to incorporate a scientific remedy of the several languages (XML, RDF, OWL, and ideas) and applied sciences (explicit metadata, ontologies, and good judgment and inference) which are crucial to Semantic internet improvement. The publication additionally examines such the most important comparable themes as ontology engineering and alertness situations. After an introductory bankruptcy, subject matters coated in succeeding chapters comprise XML and similar applied sciences that help semantic interoperability; RDF and RDF Schema, the normal info version for machine-processable semantics; and OWL, the W3C-approved typical for an online ontology language extra wide than RDF Schema; ideas, either monotonic and nonmonotonic, within the framework of the Semantic net; chosen software domain names and the way the Semantic net would get advantages them; the improvement of ontology-based structures; and present debates on key concerns and predictions for the long run.

Principles of Transaction Processing, Second Edition (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems)

The above query is of importance [again] because the net has brought on swap and stream within the TP house up to wherever else.
Those people over, say, 60, will consider a few of what's written within the booklet; many people, together with these over 60, may have forgotten much more.

So, given the adjustments and extending velocity with which know-how is relocating, it truly is greater than helpful to contemplate one of many very primary issues in company and IT: that of transactions.

We behavior them on a daily basis with out giving them a lot concept, be it via an ATM, on the internet or just by way of procuring whatever with a credits card.

This publication does a good task answering loads of questions and of overlaying loads of very complex and complicated floor in a readable and comprehensible demeanour: from long ago whilst to the present day!

Its authors are to be heartily congratulated, not just at the content material, yet on completing a frightening activity of creating a good booklet even better.

Thank you, Phil and Eric!

Semantic Digital Libraries

Libraries have constantly been an idea for the criteria and applied sciences built by means of semantic internet actions. despite the fact that, apart from the Dublin center specification, semantic internet and social networking applied sciences haven't been generally followed and extra constructed via significant electronic library projects and initiatives.

Physically Unclonable Functions: Constructions, Properties and Applications

Bodily unclonable capabilities (PUFs) are leading edge actual protection primitives that produce unclonable and inherent instance-specific measurements of actual gadgets; in lots of methods they're the inanimate identical of biometrics for humans. considering that they can securely generate and shop secrets and techniques, they permit us to bootstrap the actual implementation of a data protection method.

Data Warehouse Designs: Achieving ROI with Market Basket Analysis and Time Variance

Industry Basket research (MBA) offers the power to repeatedly display screen the affinities of a company and will aid a company in attaining a key aggressive virtue. Time version facts allows information warehouses to without delay affiliate occasions some time past with the individuals in each one person occasion. some time past besides the fact that, using those strong instruments in tandem ended in functionality degradation and ended in unactionable or even destructive details.

Example text

The structure of a document can be made machine-accessible through DTDs and XML Schema. We also discuss namespaces; accessing and querying XML documents using XPath; and transforming XML documents with XSLT. In Chapter 3 we discuss RDF and RDF Schema. RDF is a language in which we can express statements about objects (resources); it is a standard data model for machine-processable semantics. RDF Schema offers a number of modeling primitives for organizing RDF vocabularies in typed hierarchies. Chapter 4 discusses OWL, the current proposal for a Web ontology language.
