Agency and the Semantic Web

This hugely topical textual content considers the development of the subsequent new release of the internet, referred to as the Semantic net. this can let pcs to instantly devour Web-based info, overcoming the human-centric concentration of the internet because it stands at the present, and expediting the development of a complete new category of knowledge-based functions that may intelligently make the most of websites.

Advanced Approaches to Intelligent Information and Database Systems

This e-book comprises 35 chapters featuring various theoretical and functional elements of clever details and Database structures. these days either clever and Database platforms are utilized in many of the parts of human actions which necessitates extra study in those components. during this publication a variety of fascinating concerns on the topic of the clever details versions and techniques in addition to their complicated purposes, database structures purposes, facts versions and their research and electronic multimedia equipment and functions are provided and mentioned either from the sensible and theoretical issues of view.

Example text

A. Noureddine et al. [49] define Green IT from a software perspective as a ‘‘discipline concerned with the optimization of software solutions with regards to their energy consumption’’ [21, 49]. Their focus is on the environmental impacts caused by software, mainly CO2 emissions related to power consumption. ’’ [49, p. 27] Both the software product and the processes of software engineering can be developed in the direction of sustainability (see the chapter by Naumann et al. [50] in this volume).

This refers to actions that are enabled by the application of ICT. In the context of sustainability, it is important to understand the effects of these actions on resource use. We therefore view all actions as processes of production or consumption. All impacts of ICT will be viewed as special types of substitution, thus linking the LES model to the definition of substitutability given further above (see Sect. 2, Definition 4). The model differentiates between three types of enabling impact, each of which is based on substitution and can occur in both production and consumption: process optimization, media substitution, and externalization of control.

1, which treats optimization and substitution as distinct concepts. In the LES model, process optimization is instead regarded as a special type of substitution. M. Hilty and B. , as a special case of decoupling; see Sect. 20 Externalization of Control. Whenever a process requires information as one of its inputs, it is possible to externalize control over that process. , from within the organization or household), this source can be replaced or complemented by an external source. Typically, this is enabled by a prior media substitution.
