Availability: Ready to download

This book is about the power and potential of ontologies to enhance the electronic search process. It compares search strategies and results in the current search environment and demonstrates their potential transformation using ontologies and concept searching.

It compares search strategies and results in the current search environment and demonstrates their potential transformation using ontologies and concept searching. Simple descriptions, visual representations, and examples of ontologies bring a full understanding of how these concept maps are constructed to enhance retrieval through natural language queries. Readers will gain a sense of how ontologies are currently being used and how they could be applied in the future, and will be encouraged to think about how their own work and how their users’ search experiences could be enhanced by the creation of a customized ontology.

    Intended as a textbook, this book will also be a good read and reference for those who want to explore the "semantic" side of the web. Brandy King writes with clarity and a style that makes technical matter easy to digest. Examples abound and the later part of the book is devoted to case studies ranging from the realm of drug discovery to tracking terrorists. Topics range from building an ontology and natural language processing to the languages used to express ontologies (XML,RDF,OWL,SKOS)Highl Intended as a textbook, this book will also be a good read and reference for those who want to explore the "semantic" side of the web.
