Semantic Integration Workshop at the Second International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC-2003)

AI Magazine

In numerous distributed environments, including today's World Wide Web, enterprise data management systems, large science projects, and the emerging semantic web, applications will inevitably use the information described by multiple ontologies and schemas. We organized the Workshop on Semantic Integration at the Second International Semantic Web Conference to bring together different communities working on the issues of enabling integration among different resources. The workshop generated a lot of interest and attracted more than 70 participants.

The third workshop on activity context-aware system architectures sought to explore architectures for intelligent context-aware systems delivering complex functionality, with direct access to information, simplifying business processes and activities while providing domain-specific and task-specific depth in interactive banking, insurance, wealth management, finance, clinical, legal, telecom customer service, operations, supply chain, connected living room, and personal assistants. Such systems understand not just words, but intentions and the context of the interaction. Such architectures are expected to dramatically improve the quality of proactive decision support provided by virtual agents by enabling them to seek explanations, make predictions, generate and test hypotheses, and perform what-if analyses. The systems can provide extreme personalization (N 1) by inferring user intent, making relevant suggestions, maintaining context, carrying out cost-benefit analysis from multiple perspectives, finding similar cases from organizational and personal episodic memory before such cases are searched for, finding relevant documents and answers, and finding issues resolved by experts in similar situations. The architectures are expected to enable meaningfully relating, finding, and connecting people and information sources through discovery of causal, temporal, and spatial relations.
