Semantic Web Vs Artificial Intelligence
- Considering the recent interest in "Semantic Web", as a part of the
SOA course, the students are discussing the "Semantic Web Vs
In "The Semantic Web Primer" book author's arguements are based on
'Partial solution' and 'need of human intelligence'.
We would like you know the viewpoint of AIMA authors, and thier
thoughts on compare/contrast of these two domains.
Thanks in advance.
- Hello Sorathia,
I'm not an AIMA author but found your message interesting and I'd
like to contribute:
Definition of "versus" http://126.96.36.199/dictionary/versus:
1 : against
2 : in contrast to or as the alternative of <free trade versus
So, it doesn't appropriate to use "versus" when analyzing the
relationships between AI and SW.
Google provides a great presentation on the relationships between AI
and SW, as its first result (use the following strategy: "artificial
intelligence" "semantic web"):

- Someone will correct me if incorrect but isnt semantic web completely disconnected (unrelated) with AI?
Semantic Web is all about adding meaning to 'everything' on the web (by humans) so that 'more meaning' can be generated out of the web 'collectively'
AI all about teaching machines to apply/learn intelligence
So AI is an effort to make machines 'intelligent' but SW is an effort to 'enable machines' to intrepret the web.
Of course, AI can be applied to SW but so can other fields of (computer) science ?

I would agree with the following : (Src : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantic_Web)
A Semantic Web is a type of weak AI. The concept of machine-understandable documents does not imply an artificial intelligence which allows machines to comprehend human-defined concepts. But it indicates a machine's ability to solve a well-defined problem by performing well-defined operations on existing well-defined data. In this respect, the Semantic Web is like a large-scale expert system.
