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.
