Abstract:

The vast amount of data contained in the Web hinders the capacity of people to process the information it contains. Teknowledges Briefing Associate BA, developed under Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys DARPA DAML DARPA Agent Markup Language technical program, facilitates the composition and publication of semantically grounded briefings. BA rendered briefings that contain markups that describe the domain-specific content matter of the briefing. BA briefing may contain either original or imported semantic content. The BA generates DAML descriptions of a briefings original content as a byproduct of creating that contents visual depiction. Briefing authors select ontologically defined objects as predefined graphic shapes or icons to include in their briefing mediates the creation of web language markup, for original content. These visually annotated ontologies are demand-loaded into the BA to specialize it to a particular subject-matter domain. BA also graphically generates depictions of imported semantic content. BA is as an extension of Microsoft PowerPoint. The intent of this augmentation is to nearly eliminate any cost of producing this semantic markup beyond the costs inherent in producing the equivalent semantics-free version. Teknowledge similarly augmented Microsoft Word to enable authors to add DAML markup to their Word documents.
