Data Management in Semantic Web

Publisher: Nova Science Publishers, Inc.

Volume (s) Editors: Hai Jin, Zehua Lv



Book Objectives & Mission

Data management or information management is a very important topic in every
aspects of society. Traditional data management mainly focuses on
information processing which generally only involves with data of a single
organization. In the systems, data are unified according to same schema and
there exists an agreement between the interacting units as to the correct
mapping between these concepts. Nowadays, data management systems have to
handle a variety of data sources, from proprietary ones to data publicly
available. Grasping relevant information and exchanging information has
become an essential challenge for data management. In a word, information
sharing is now primary goal of data management.

Information sharing is not a new concern, and some solutions based on the
syntactic functionality provided by exchange standards or standard
formatting were proposed. However, now information has to be sharable in an
open environment, where interacting units do not necessarily share a common
understanding of the world. Lack of common background generates the need for
explicit guidance in understanding the exact meaning of the data, i.e., its
semantics. This makes semantic data management emerge strongly which takes
the issue far beyond information sharing based on exchange standards or
standard formatting.  The aim of semantic data management is to make content
easier for machines to find, access and process by expressing data and
meaning in standard machine-readable format and supporting decentralized
definition and management.

Hence, the objective of this book is to explore the technology and
application of semantic data management by bringing together various
research studies, presumably in different subfields.

To provide greatest reading flexibility, the book will be organized in
self-contained chapters

Description logic;

Semantic web;

Semantic data representation;

Semantic data clustering;

Semantic data extraction: metadata extraction, entity identify etc;
