Explorer�s Guide to the Semantic Web

By Thomas B. Passin

Greenwich, CT, June 29, 2004 -- The Semantic Web is coming and a new book
released by Manning Publications will guide readers through the basic concepts
and technologies that will come with it. A complex set of extensions to the
World Wide Web, the Semantic Web will make data and services more accessible to
computers and more useful to people. Some of these extensions are being deployed
now, and many are coming in the next years. "Explorer's Guide to the Semantic
Web" is the only book to explore the territory of the Semantic Web in a broad
and conceptual manner.

This guide introduces the basic ideas and technologies of the Semantic Web,
their roles and inter-relationships. The key areas covered include knowledge
modeling (RDF, Topic Maps), ontology (OWL), agents (intelligent and otherwise),
distributed trust and belief, "semantically-focused" search, and much more. The
book's basic, conceptual approach is accessible to readers with a wide range of
backgrounds and interests. This book will be released June 30, 2004.

Manning Publications is a publisher of high-quality technology books for
software developers and managers. Manning is based in Greenwich, CT.

Thomas B. Passin is Principal Systems Engineer with Mitretek Systems. He became
involved with XML-related work in 1998, with Topic Maps in 1999 and developed
the open-source TM4JScript JavaScript topic map engine. He has been working on
Web-related subjects like dynamic web sites since 1997. During a former career
(one of many), he trained dolphins in Hawaii. Mr. Passin is the coauthor of the
book Signal Processing in C. He lives in Reston, Virginia.
