Abstract:
Semantic representation of information has some evident advantages from an integration point of view, but there are many situations in which this approach is not directly applicable, as information is stored in several formats without (implicit or explicit) knowledge of its semantics. We present a distributed middleware able to unify the access to any arbitrary information source by doing a semantic translation of its contents.
