Abstract

SOUZA, Renato Rocha  and  ALVARENGA, Lídia. Web Semantics and its contributions to information science. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2004, vol.33, n.1, pp. 132-141. ISSN 0100-1965.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652004000100016.

This article explores the updating process that is taking place in the World Wide Web in the transition to what is being called "The Semantic Web". In this sense, we try to identify the technologies, the associated organizations and institutions, the conceptualization and the philosophy that underlie this new web. The article also tries to show the interconnections between the semantic web and the field of information science, and how the semantic web technologies can broaden the traditional information science research subjects.

Keywords : Semantic Web; Information science; Internet; Systems of information retrieval; Hypertext.
