Making the Semantic Web a Reality through Active Semantic Spaces

Bridging the Gep between Semantic Web and Web 2.0 (SemNet 2007), page 111-118. (2007)

One reason for the slow acceptance of the Semantic Web is the lack of simple, straightforward, and attractive end-user showcases. Interest from end-users is an essential driving force of all web technolo- gies. In this position paper we propose active semantic spaces (ASpaces) as a possible showcase. An ASpace is built on a combination of Semantic Web technologies, service agent technologies, and Web 2.0 technologies. Semantic Web technologies support producing machine-processable con- tent on ASpaces. Service-agent technologies support proactive machine agents on ASpaces that communicate with both their human users and their peers. Web 2.0 technologies support friendly user interaction and the capability of dynamically collecting remote feedback from ASpace agents. By combining these technologies together, users can issue per- sonal requests to ASpace agents, which then look for answers on other ASpaces. ASpace agents automatically blog results back to users as if they had come from remote human users. This showcase is an example of bridging the gap between the Semantic Web and Web 2.0.
