While the current Web provides access to an enormous amount of information, it is currently only human-readable. In response to this problem, the Semantic Web allows for explicit representation of the Semantics of data so that it is machine interpretable. "Semantic Web for Knowledge and Data Management: Technologies and Practices" provides a single record of technologies and practices of the Semantic approach to the management, organization, interpretation, retrieval, and use of Web-based data. This groundbreaking collection offers state-of-the-art information to academics, researchers, and industry practitioners involved in the study, use, design, and development of advanced and emerging Semantic Web technologies.
