SEMANTIC WEB: THE FUTURE OF THE WEB
Semantic web indicates the transformation of the world wide web into an environment where documents are linked to information and data which determine the semantic context in a format that is ideal for the interrogation, the interpretation and the automatic elaboration.
Thanks to the evolution of the web, researches become more efficient since they are based not only on hyperlink, but on different keywords contained in the document and on specific operation which are useful to create networks of relations and connections among documents.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN SEMANTIC INTELLIGENCE AND WEB 3.0
P.M.F. has been operating for several years in the R&D sector and, in particular, in the field of semantic intelligence and web 3.0.
Semantic intelligence indicates the technologies which are able to structure unstructured information: for example, in the case of a website, the collection of structured information can be interpreted and automatically elaborated on the basis of the semantic properties of the data.
Semantic intelligence underpins Web 3.0 which is rapidly evolving. The world wide web transforms itself into an environment where the published documents can be interpreted thanks to the help of metadata.
“Semantic Sicily” has represented an application of the new technology: the project has been developed within the OP ERDF Sicily 2007/2013, it has involved over 23 Sicilian SMEs in the IT sector.
The “Semantic Sicily” Supply Chain Development Plan has proposed the development of business solutions in the field of semantic web also by using the potential of the cloud computing.
FORMAZIONE PROFESSIONISTI: THE E-LEARNING PLATFORM WITH A SEMANTIC HEART
The “Semantic Sicily” project made it possible the development of an innovative platform for distance learning which integrates semantic technology with e-learning.
Thanks to the technological evolution it has been possible to implement a new distance learning platform which, through the combination of e-learning and semantic web, has given the right interpretation of the online training courses on search engines and an adequate recognition in the organic searches.
