    Recently, there is an increasing tendency to embed the functionality of recognizing emotions from the user generated contents, to infer richer profile about the users or contents, that can be used for various automated ...
  • Privacy, security and policies: A review of problems and solutions with semantic web technologies 

    Kirrane, Sabrina; Villata, Serena; d’Aquin, Mathieu (IOS Press, 2018)
    Semantic Web technologies aim to simplify the distribution, sharing and exploitation of information and knowledge, across multiple distributed actors on the Web. As with all technologies that manipulate information, there ...
  • RDFS & OWL Reasoning for Linked Data 

    Hogan, Aidan; Delbru, Renaud; Umbrich, Jurgen (na, 2013)
    Linked Data promises that a large portion of Web Data will be usable as one big interlinked RDF database against which structured queries can be answered. In this lecture we will show how reasoning - using RDF Schema (RDFS) ...
