No More Semantic Web Post !!!

May 21, 2009

in past I was so attracted to learn About Semantic Web  and wrote many some post about it but now no more posts!!!!. well, to be honest i still attracted 🙂 but in other way ,mmmmm  let me explain more  : in last few months  i read about Information Retrieval and its Models Like Vector Model, Extended Boolean,…….. and The Most Attractive one : Was The LOGICAL MODEL ,this model is still under researches  and it’s Really  the future of IR  it talks about semantics appraoches  and stronge data representation on witch we can apply resoning  and  many other important research areas and “Semantic Web” is  one of those reseached areas .

we (me and my  friends ) made a seminar  about Logical Model of IR  and  we  will  publish it on the web may be in Knol (Google ‘s Enclopedia), we will let you know as it happens.

simple Introduction to semantic web !

February 10, 2009

Semantic web is all about capturing the meaning and to be more specific it;s about making the web page machine readable BUT the Question is How we can achieve that ?!!
A web page is composed of text and picture witch is easy to read by people BUT is machine unreadable ,the computer can’t understand that page content but the simple solution to this problem is to add a meta data to the page witch is invisible to people but understood by computer ,this meta describe the object in the page and their relationship in a way that the computer can understand.
As result the search engine and agent will use that meta data to simplify their works and that’s why the search result will be more accurate .
it worth knowing that semantic web is not a replacement of the current web but it is an extension to it ,To apply semantic web each site must add meta date to its pages.
One drawback to Semantic search is that results take a long time to get back to you.
To describe how to use the metadata I make a lot of search on the web and I got very complex and  in-depth details but the best site I came across  is  “how stuff work”  it’s the most simplest and good as start , visit  here .

Note :you might find the above information so abstract but they are good as a basic guidelines
beside i will update this post later with any new guideline


how Stuff Works

Today is The Day

March 14, 2008

Today is the day of yahoo, I ‘ve always thought about this day The day that one of the search engine giants (google & yahoo) will start to think about applying “Semantic Web” to it’s search engine…and it’s now happening yahoo .
at 14/March/2008 announced its adoption of some of the key standards of the “semantic web” and this could mean a challenge for Google .
actually I was disappointed because I Thought that Google will start that challenge but that doesn’t matter what’s only matter now for me that the semantic web will be applied to search engine.
the search operation will be more powerful by use of semantic web because the engine will try to capture the meaning…that’s key witch makes me so attracted to Learn more about semantic web,So today is beginning .
