This has provided a broad overview of semantic Web mining.
We examined the semantic Web concepts and
described the impact of Web mining. We started with a discussion of
semantic Web mining concepts and discussed a concept of operation.
Then we discussed mining XML and RDF documents as well as the semantic
interoperability of these documents. We also discussed the use of
agents in semantic Web mining and described the notion of incorporating
mining into the semantic Web when the semantic Web is considered to be
a heterogeneous database manager. Finally, we discussed the evolution of
the semantic Web and also examined the use of Web mining in E-commerce.
