Towards Knowledge in the Cloud
Source: University of Trento
Knowledge in the form of semantic data is becoming more and more ubiquitous, and the need for scalable, dynamic systems to support collaborative work with such distributed, heterogeneous knowledge arises. The authors extend the "Data in the cloud" approach that is emerging today to "Knowledge in the cloud", with support for handling semantic information, organizing and finding it efficiently and providing reasoning and quality support. Both the life sciences and emergency response fields are identified as strong potential beneficiaries of having "Knowledge in the cloud".
