In Search of the Wisdom Web  
   Ning Zhong, Jiming Liu, Yiyu Yao 

Web intelligence offers a new direction for scientific research and 
development, pushing technology toward manipulating the meaning of 
data and creating a distributed intelligence that can actually get 
things done.  WI explores the fundamental and practical impact that 
artificial intelligence and advanced information technology will 
have on the next generation of Web-empowered systems, services, and 
environments.

The Web significantly affects both academic research and everyday life, 
revolutionizing how we gather, store, process, present, share, and use 
information. It offers opportunities and challenges in many areas, 
including business, commerce, finance, and research and development.

The next-generation Web will go beyond improved information search 
and knowledge queries and will help people achieve better ways of 
living, working, playing, and learning. To fulfill its potential, 
the intelligent Web's design and development must incorporate knowledge 
from existing disciplines, such as artificial intelligence and 
information technology, in a totally new domain.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Web and Social Networks  
Ravi Kumar, Prabhakar Raghavan, Sridhar Rajagopalan, Andrew Tomkins 

The sheer volume of Web data, together with its low signal-to-noise 
ratio, make it difficult for text-based search engines to locate 
high-quality pages. Analyzing the links between Web sites has 
dramatically improved the Web search experience and spawned research 
into the Web's link structure.  This research includes graph-theoretic 
studies of connectivity, which have shown the Web to have strong 
similarities with social networks.

Self-similarity is pervasive in social networks. While researchers have 
observed Web self-similarity in other contexts, finding a fractal 
structure in a graph-theoretic setting adds further evidence to the 
Web's small-world social nature. Thus, researchers seek to explain and 
exploit the human behavior implicit in the Web's evolving structure.

How can we combine the power of Web networks with networks resulting 
from other human activity?  Accomplishing this goal represents knowledge 
management's key challenge and opportunity.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Social Intelligence Design for the Web  
  Toyoaki Nishida 

Web intelligence reflects the view that eventually we will build a totally 
new kind of collective intelligence on the Web computing infrastructure. 
To reach this goal we must solve several major problems. For example, 
embedding Web computing into our everyday lives and society poses a more 
difficult problem than engineers might think. Because new technologies 
often consume financial resources without providing a comparable benefit, 
we must pay close attention to the social aspects of intelligence and how 
Web computing can augment knowledge processes, an attitude that underlies 
social intelligence design.

Computer-supported collaborative work takes a similar approach, focusing 
on well-structured, goal-oriented groups.  Social intelligence design, on 
the other hand, highlights collective knowledge processes in informal, 
loosely coupled groups.  It thus focuses not only on technological 
development for Web intelligence but also on the design and analysis 
of a social framework for embedding Web intelligence into everyday life.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: A Scenario Description Language for Interactive Agents  
   Toru Ishida 

Agent internal mechanisms form the basis for many of the languages 
proposed for describing agent behavior and interagent protocols. 
For the Web, however, we should also consider the needs of application 
designers such as sales managers, travel agents, and school teachers.

To this end, the author is developing Q, a language for describing 
interaction scenarios between agents and users based on agent external 
roles. Q also provides an interface between computing professionals 
and scenario writers.  Rather than depending on agent internal mechanisms, 
Q seeks to describe how scenario writers should request that agents behave. 
Scenarios help establish a bridge between the computing professionals 
who design agents and the scenario writers who design applications. 
Thus, we can expect an effective dialog to emerge from the interplay 
between the two different perspectives during the process of formalizing 
interaction patterns.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Toward Behavioral Intelligence in the Semantic Web  
   Joanna Bryson, David Martin, Sheila McIlraith, Lynn Stein 

Realizing the Web's full potential will require the development and 
support of agents that function as schedulers, planners, and searchers 
who, with minimal direction, can serve as an omnipresent staff of 
advisers, secretaries, brokers, and research assistants.  Electronic 
commerce has brought this capability tantalizingly near.  Organizations 
and individuals have connected an enormous variety of products and 
services to the Internet, making them accessible to other programs 
through simple communication protocols.

Now the AI community must determine how it can build intelligent agents 
to exploit these services.  One strategy would change the Web itself, 
making it accessible to existing AI modeling and reasoning techniques. 
In this semantic Web, service and content providers would mark pages 
in accordance with standardized conventions designed to reduce ambiguity 
and make automated reasoning easier.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ontology-Based Knowledge Management  
   Dieter Fensel 

The Web's very popularity is making it more difficult to find, present, 
and maintain the data that users with a wide range of tasks and computer 
skills need.  Existing document management systems use keyword matching 
as a search method, combined with information retrieval rather than query 
answering.  In addition, these systems offer limited information-sharing 
facilities, and they don't support different views on documents or 
information maintenance.

To address these weaknesses, a European consortium formed the 
On-to-Knowledge Project to build an ontology-based tool suite that 
efficiently processes the many heterogeneous, distributed, and 
semistructured documents typically found in intra-nets and on the Web. 
The consortium's approach integrates semantic Web search technology, 
document exchange via transformation operators,automated information 
extraction, and systematic support for information maintenance and 
user-specific views. On-to-Knowledge's tools exploit the power of 
ontologies to provide automated support for acquiring, maintaining, 
and accessing weakly structured information sources.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Integrated Approach to Web Ontology Learning and Engineering  
   Michele Missikof, Roberto Navigli, Paola Velardi 

Developing the semantic Web-seeking to improve the semantic awareness 
of computers connected via the Internet-requires a systematic, 
computer-oriented world representation.  Researchers often refer to 
such a model as an ontology.

Despite the work done on them in recent years, ontologies have yet to 
be widely applied and used. Research has devoted only limited attention 
to such practical issues as techniques and tools aimed at an ontology's 
actual construction and content.

A software environment, centered around the OntoLearn tool, can build and 
assess a domain ontology for intelligent information integration within 
a virtual user community.  OntoLearn has already been tested in two 
European projects, where it functioned as the basis for a semantic 
interoperability platform used by small and medium-sized tourism 
enterprises.  Further, developers can easily adapt OntoLearn to work 
with other general-purpose ontologies.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Data Mining for Web Intelligence  
   Jiawei Han, Kevin Chang 

Searching, comprehending, and using the semistructured HTML, XML, and 
database-service-engine information stored on the Web poses a significant 
challenge: This data is more sophisticated and dynamic than the 
information commercial database systems store. To supplement keywordbased 
indexing, researchers have applied data mining to Webpage ranking. In 
this context, data mining helps Web search engines find high-quality 
Web pages and enhances Web click stream analysis. For the Web to reach 
its full potential, however, we must improve its services, make it more 
comprehensible, and increase its usability. As researchers continue to 
develop data mining techniques, the authors believe this technology will 
play an increasingly important role in meeting the challenges of developing 
the intelligent Web.

Ultimately, data mining for Web intelligence will make the Web a richer, 
friendlier, and more intelligent resource that we can all share and explore.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

>From Computational Intelligence to Web Intelligence  
   Nick Cercone, Lijun Hou, Vlado Keselj, Aijun An, 
   Kanlaya Naruedomkul, Xiaohua Hu 

Systems that can communicate naturally and learn from interactions will 
power Web intelligence's longterm success. The large number of problems 
requiring Webspecific solutions demand a sustained and complementary 
effort to advance fundamental machine learning research and incorporate 
a learning component into every Internet interaction.  Traditional forms 
of machine translation either translate poorly, require resources that 
grow exponentially with the number of languages translated, or simplify 
language excessively. Recent success in statistical, nonlinguistic, and 
hybrid machine translation suggests that systems based on these 
technologies can achieve better results with a large annotated language 
corpus.  Adapting existing computational intelligence solutions, when 
appropriate for Web intelligence applications, must incorporate a robust 
notion of learning that will scale to the Web, adapt to individual user 
requirements, and personalize interfaces.
