About this product
- DescriptionTo date, the relation between multilingualism and the Semantic Web has t yet received eugh attention in the research community. One major challenge for the Semantic Web community is to develop architectures, frameworks and systems that can help in overcoming national and language barriers, facilitating equal access to information produced in different cultures and languages. As such, this volume aims at documenting the state-of-the-art with regard to the vision of a Multilingual Semantic Web, in which semantic information will be accessible in and across multiple languages. The Multilingual Semantic Web as envisioned in this volume will support the following functionalities: (1) responding to information needs in any language with regard to semantically structured data available on the Semantic Web and Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud, (2) verbalizing and accessing semantically structured data, ontologies or other conceptualizations in multiple languages, (3) harmonizing, integrating, aggregating, comparing and repurposing semantically structured data across languages and (4) aligning and reconciling ontologies or other conceptualizations across languages. The volume is divided into three main sections: Principles, Methods and Applications. The section on Principles discusses models, architectures and methodologies that enrich the current Semantic Web architecture with features necessary to handle multiple languages. The section on Methods describes algorithms and approaches for solving key issues related to the construction of the Multilingual Semantic Web. The section on Applications describes the use of Multilingual Semantic Web based approaches in the context of several application domains. This volume is essential reading for all academic and industrial researchers who want to embark on this new research field at the intersection of various research topics, including the Semantic Web, Linked Data, natural language processing, computational linguistics, termilogy and information retrieval. It will also be of great interest to practitioners who are interested in re-examining their existing infrastructure and methodologies for handling multiple languages in Web applications or information retrieval systems.
- Author BiographyDr. Paul Buitelaar is a senior research fellow and head of the Unit for Natural Language Processing of the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Before joining Insight (formerly DERI) in 2009, he was a senior researcher at the DFKI Language Technology Lab and co-head of the DFKI Competence Center Semantic Web in Saarbrucken, Germany. His main research interests are in the development and use of Natural Language Processing methods and tools for semantic-based information access. Prof. Dr. Philipp Cimiano is full professor of computer science at the University of Bielefeld and leads the Semantic Computing group at CITEC. Prior to this, he was assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, where he worked in the Web Information Systems Group. He has published over 100 research papers in NLP, Ontologies, Knowledge Acquisition and Semantic Web and was nominated one of AI's 10 to Watch by the IEEE Intelligent Systems Magazine.
