Abstract

Metadata is the foundation of Semantic Web. The MetaData Pro project seeks to build a metadata processing platform for web resource. The system architecture has three key components– Metadata Extraction, Ontology Management, and Metadata Retrieval. The system can automatically extract metadata about web resource: if the web resource itself contains metadata, extracts them; otherwise, automatically generates the metadata for the resource according to Dublin Core by applying automatic keyword extraction and text summarization techniques. To manage the metadata, MetaData Pro integrates Protégé to create domain ontology, makes use of HowNet to help ontology construction, and provides an ontology-based metadata retrieval.

Keywords

Query Language Text Summarization Query Request Metadata Element Ontology Management 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
