  • DAML Ontology Schema (Semantic Web in RDFS) 10/15/00 Who points to it? 18 - DAML-ONT is a schema for representing ontologies in RDFS that is being developed as a part of the DARPA Agent Based Computing program. DAML-ONT roughly corresponds to a frame-based or description logic knowledge representation language and allows the definition of classes andsubclasses, their properties, and a set of restrictions thereon. Thelanguage does not yet include any specification of explicit inferencerules, which we hope will follow.

  • DAML could take search to a new level 2/21/00 Who points to it? 14 - (By Jim Rapoza, PC Week Labs, PC WeekFebruary 6, 2000)It may seem that the last thing the world needs is another Web standard, but there is always roomfor an intelligent addition. A new language known as DAML addresses an important, unmetneed—making Web sites understandable to programs and nontraditional browsing devices.DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Agent Markup Language is a steptoward what Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web, calls a "semantic Web"where agents, search engines and other programs can read DAML mark up to deciphermeaning—rather than just content—on a Web site. A semantic Web also lets agents utilize all thedata on all Web pages, allowing it to gain knowledge from one site and apply it to logicalmappings on other sites.

  • USC/ISI Ariadne Project 1/23/00 Who points to it? 13 - This project at USC's ISI is developing the technology and tools for rapidly constructing intelligent agents to extract, query, and integrate datafrom web sources. We are developing the tools to construct wrappers that make web sources look like databases and we are developing the mediatortechnology required to dynamically and efficiently answer queries using these sources. The resulting system, which we call Ariadne, will make it fast andcheap to build new agent applications from existing web sources. The mediator and wrapper approach also makes it easy to maintain these applicationsand incorporate new sources as they become available.
