  • Discussion

    • Conclusion

      • Extensible Framework

      • Enables community development

      • Provides uniform, customizable search interfaces

    • Future Work

      • Service-level discovery metadata

      • Provenance tracking / SAF integration

      • Web browser plugins


Benefits of semantics
Benefits of Semantics Design

  • Claim: S2S leverages semantics to provide a metadata vocabulary, and, in future versions, will use linked data practices for dereferenceable framework metadata.



Benefit of semantics1
Benefit of Semantics Design

  • Claim: S2S provides explicit semantics for the relationships between web services, search parameters, and user interface widgets.



Benefit of semantics3
Benefit of Semantics Design

  • Claim: S2S leverages RDFS reasoning to infer sub-class transitivity for type checking, and, in future versions, will use OWL-DL to perform instance integrity checking using cardinality and value qualifiers.


Benefit of semantics4
Benefit of Semantics Design

  • For integrity checking…

    • …In component registration/validation

      • OpenSearchServicehasDescriptionDocumentexactly 1 xsd:anyURI

      • WidgethasGeneratorFunctionexactly 1 xsd:string

    • …In real-time user interface building

      • HierarchicalWidgetforWidgetonly OrdinalParameter

  • For sub-class reasoning…

    • …To answer queries like “select all widgets” when many widgets are not directly classified as type s2s:Widget


Project status
Project Status Design

  • Introduction (drafted)

  • Related Work (90% drafted)

  • Research Methods (drafted, reviewed)

  • Application Ontology (75% drafted)

  • Application Prototype (outlined)

  • Results (outlined)

  • Conclusion (outlined)


Stats
Stats Design

  • 16-20 pages (with figures)

  • 7 sections

  • 6 figures

  • 1 table

  • ~30 references

  • 6 month duration (3-4 solid weeks)

  • 75 cups of coffee


Questions from class
Questions from Class Design

  • Jin: See slides 8, 10, and 12

  • Peter:

    • Claim 1: Vocabulary and metadata are not Semantic Web terms. For an explanation of linked data see: http://bit.ly/PmwsA

    • Claim 2: Semantics is also not a Semantic Web term. Basically, I provide a directed graph where the vertices denote concepts and the arcs denote relationships between concepts in the framework. See: http://bit.ly/ebKcRV

    • Claim 3: See slide 12


Questions from class1
Questions from Class Design

  • Scott: S2S uses only lightweight semantics. Basically:

    • Structured metadata

    • Explicit semantics

    • Automated integrity checking

    • …propose alternative solution for reusable user interface and a federated search platform that spans web service standards?

  • Ping: Swoogle searches for ontologies, S2S is a search platform. Yes, I created the metadata.
