Using the Semantic Web in Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing


Ora Lassila, Nokia Research Center


This keynote talk views the Semantic Web as a means to improve the interoperability between systems, applications, and information sources. Emerging personal computing paradigms such as ubiquitous and mobile computing will benefit from better interoperability, as this is an enabler for a higher degree of automation of many tasks that would otherwise require the end-users' attention. Specific application areas of Semantic Web technologies with direct ramifications to these new paradigms include Web Services, context-awareness and policy modeling.
