Amit Sheth, "Semantic Web & Info. Brokering Opportunities, Commercialization and Challenges," Keynote talk at the workshop on Semantic Web: Models, Architecture and Management, September 21, 2000, Lisbon, Portugal.

This was the keynote given at probably the first international event with "Semantic Web" in title (and before the well known SciAm article). As in TBL's use of Semantic Web in his 1999 book, (semantic) metadata plays central role. The use of Worldmodel/Ontology is consistent with our use of ontology for (Web) information integration in 1994 CIKM paper. Summary of the talk by event organizers and other details are at: http://knoesis.org/library/resource.php?id=735

Prof. Sheth started a Semantic Web company Taalee, Inc. in 1999 (product was called MediaAnywhere A/V search engine- discussed in this paper in the context of one of its use by a customer Redband Broadcasting). The product included Semantic Web/populated Ontology based semantic (faceted) search, semantic browsing, semantic personalization, semantic targeting (advertisement), etc as is described in U.S. Patent #6311194, 30 Oct. 2001 (filed 2000). MediaAnywhere has about 25 ontologies in News/Business, Sports, Entertainment, etc.

Taalee merged to become Voquette in 2001 (product was called SCORE), Semagix in 2004 (product was called Semagix Freedom), and then Fortent in 2006 (products included Know Your Customers).

  • knoesis Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University at Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University Abstract: From the chairs' report published in SIGMOD record: The keynote address entitled 'Semantic Web and Information Brokering: Opportunities, Early Commercializations, and Challenges' was delivered by Amit Sheth (University of Georgia and Taalee Corp). Sheth characterized semantics as the next step in the evolution of the WWW and stressed the importance of semantically organized information for supporting ubiquitous, powerful, accurate and efficient access to this information. Sheth also reviewed proposals for semantic interoperability frameworks such as the DAML(DARPA Agent Mark-Up Language), the Oingo family of tools for defining concepts and extracting knowledge from large databases, as well as several scenarios on learning on the Web. He moved on to present the semantic services provided by Taalee, including semantic categorization, cataloguing, search, personalization and targeting. Although given mainly from a commercial perspective, Sheth's presentation made a clear statement about the importance of semantic enrichment in enabling information brokering on interoperable multidatabase systems. Terminology and language transparency, comprehensive metadata management, context-sensitive information processing and semantic correlation were characterized as the basis for enabling the symbiosis of semantic information brokering and the Semantic Web.
