Sample text

1, and we have also created an imaginary agent to help us accomplish our goal. In this section, we will take a closer look at this common task on the Web. Let us say you decide to try some Indian food for your weekend dining out. You first search the Web to find a list of restaurants specialized in Indian cuisine, you then pick one restaurant, and you write down the address. Now you open up a new browser and go to your favorite map utility to get the driving direction from your house to the restaurant.

To see this, recall that Sect. 2 has described some requirements for both the current Web and agents, in order to bring the concept of the Semantic Web into reality. 1 summarizes how those requirements summarized in Sect. 2 can be mapped to the Semantic Web’s major technologies and standards. 1 may not make sense at this point, but all the related technologies and standards will be covered in detail in the upcoming chapters of this book. 1, you should be able to understand it with much more ease.

Now you open up a new browser and go to your favorite map utility to get the driving direction from your house to the restaurant. This process is a simple integration process: you first get some information (the address of the restaurant) and you use it to get more information (the direction), and they collectively help you to enjoy a nice dining out. Another similar but more complex example is to create a holiday plan that pretty much every one of us has done.
