MISM 516 - Taxonomies, Ontologies and Semantic Web
The internet has brought forth with it, the tools to publish and create information. This can be seen in the phenomenal popularity of blogs, wiki and other user driven content media, on account of which there has been high information overload. Information retrieval would be much easier in the over crowded web, if the information is integrated intelligently, where the meaning of the page is stated explicitly. This is called as Semantic Web. Taxonomies and Ontologies would in turn facilitate the definition markups in building up the Semantics. A Semantic web would facilitate the integration and communication between the various widgets available online and makes web searching more intelligent.
