Conceptual Modeling for a Web of Knowledge

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The current web is a web of linked pages. Frustrated users search for facts by guessing which keywords or keyword phrases might lead them to pages where they can find facts. Can people make it possible for users to search directly for facts? Equivalently, can they turn the web into a web of facts (instead of a web of pages containing facts)? Ultimately, can the web be a knowledgebase - a web of knowledge - that can provide direct answers to factual questions and also provide the confidence necessary to make those answers believable? The authors answer these questions by showing how to superimpose a web of data over the web of pages, resulting in a web of knowledge.
