This is a quick assignment! Study section 1.3 in “Algorithms of the Intelligent Web” and blog on the following: For each of the domains identified there (a total of 6 are discussed under sections 1.3.1 to 1.3.6), identify the three ingredients of an intelligent web (refer to Figure 1.1)
Doc: Ingredients of an Intelligent Web
Doc: Intelligence Web Applications
Content: Users. The users can share files with each other, comment on current events or other people’s page.
Reference Structures: The reference structures would be the user profile of User.
Algorithms: Taking the data from the user gives them and providing suggestions of friends and making adding users in to groups by their profile.
Content: The Mashups don’t actually own the content that they display at least, a big part of it. The content is physically stored in geographically dispersed location.
Reference Structures: The reconciliation and classification of the content require one or more reference structure for interpreting the meaning of the content.
Algorithms: Elements of the reference structures are contained within the various pieces collected. How content that has been retrieved from difference sites should be categorized for viewing purpose.
Content: The data comes from sites like Google News. These sites gather news stories from thousands of sources and automatically groups news under heading.
Reference Structures: The structure is that of grouping articles from the different sources regardless of source itself, and categorizing.
Algorithms: It should be categorizes the content into the structures (heading) already mentioned.
Content: The content comes from various users, and is all dynamic.
Reference Structures: The creation workflow has a built in structure that annotates the content. You can assign an article to a category and link in articles that refer to the same subject.
Algorithms: The pages of wiki will have natural linkage which provides fertile ground for advanced searching, clustering, and other analytical techniques.
Media Sharing Sites:
Reference Structures: The videos and audio files have to be categorized in some way. I think this is pretty primitive in YouTube, as it seems to be just provided by the user, and could be misleading as it often times is.
Algorithms: Used for categorization and hierarchy.
Content: The user profiles, statistics, achievements, played games, interaction with friends.
Reference Structures: The reference structures would be the characterizations of data elements an input.
Algorithms: To make rules in games.
