An Integrated Model in E-Government Based on Semantic Web, Web Service and Intelligent Agent
One urgent problem in E-government service is to improve service efficiency through breaking information islands while constructing integrated service systems. Web Service provides a set of standards for the provision of functionality over the Web, and Web Service descriptions are pure syntactic instead of semantic content. Semantic Web provides interoperability from syntactic level to semantic one not only for human users but also for software agents. Semantic Web and Intelligent Agent are highly complementary, and the existing technologies have made their unification quite feasible, which brings about a good opportunity to the development of E-government. Based on Semantic Web and Intelligent Agent technologies an integrated service model of E-government is suggested in this paper.
