The drive towards net-centric applications that enable ubiquitous computing has led to the need for computing systems that operate and interact at knowledge level. In order for this vision to be realised, knowledge need to be modelled as a resource that is made available to computing systems on a global scale. To address this issue, the authors envisage a grid infrastructure that allows computing systems to interact at semantic level, and have capabilities to share, learn and evolve knowledge representations. Some solutions that seek to achieve this goal have been proposed. These include techniques emanating from the semantic web, semantic grid and knowledge grid efforts.
