Software Engineering and the Semantic Web: A match made in heaven or in hell?


Bernstein, Abraham (2010). Software Engineering and the Semantic Web: A match made in heaven or in hell? In: Software Language Engineering: THIRD International Conference, SLE 2010, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 1 January 2010 - 1 January 2010, 203-205.

Abstract

The Semantic Web provides models and abstractions for the distributed processing of knowledge bases. In Software Engineering en- deavors such capabilities are direly needed, for ease of implementation, maintenance, and software analysis.Conversely, software engineering has collected decades of experience in engineering large application frameworks containing both inheritance and aggregation. This experience could be of great use when, for ex- ample, thinking about the development of ontologies.These examples—and many others—seem to suggest that researchers from both fields should have a field day collaborating: On the surface this looks like a match made in heaven. But is that the case? This talk will explore the opportunities for cross-fertilization of the two research fields by presenting a set of concrete examples. In addition to the opportunities it will also try to identify cases of fools gold (pyrite), where the differences in method, tradition, or semantics between the two research fields may lead to a wild goose chase.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
