Semantic Web Meets Language Resources
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Nancy Ide and Chris Welty, Cohairs
This workshop is intended to bring together researchers in AI who are working on the semantic web and those involved in the development of standards for linguistic annotation, to enable an exchange of information and ideas. This is a critical point at which to bring together these two groups, who typically have little interaction. Those involved in developing language resources need to gain a deeper understanding of the potential of and requirements for the semantic web and standardized ontologies. AI researchers, who are working on a general model, will gain insight by considering an application of their work to actual content and, more generally, by considering the needs for a specific domain that requires complex representation mechanisms and sophisticated means to exploit the information.
