Semantic web indicates the transformation of the world wide web into an environment where documents are associated with information and data which determine the semantic context in a format that fits with the interrogation, the interpretation and the automatic elaboration.
With the evolution of the web, researches become more efficient since they are based not only on hyperlink, but also on the presence in the document of different keywords and specific operations that are useful to create networks of relations and connections among documents.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN SEMANTIC INTELLIGENCE
A real example of this new technology is “Semantic Sicily”: 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 aimed at developing business solutions in the semantic web field by using the potential of cloud computing.
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING: 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.
Technological evolution enabled the implementation of a brand-new distance learning platform which, through the combination of e-learning and semantic web, contributed to the right interpretation of the online training courses on search engines and an adequate recognition in the organic searches.
