MalariaWorld is now ready for Web3.0

October 9, 2009 - 14:20 -- Serge Christiaans

What is the Semantic Web? The guy given credit for inventing the internet, Tim Berners-Lee, explains:

"I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The intelligent agents; people have touted for ages will finally materialize"

 At MalariaWorld we stand for Open Acces. Information for everybody, anywhere. That's why we also use Open source software. We want to make all the world's malaria content more accessible, interoperable and valuable. Some call it Web 2.0, Web 3.0, the Semantic Web or the Giant Global Graph. Whatever you call it, MalariaWorld is ready for it.

You can now feed MalariaWorld with blogs and scientific articles as unstructured web documents and it will tag (or index) these documents in a useful and intelligent way–by Relations, Organizations, Industry Terms, Company, Person, Country, and City. It will generate rich semantic metadata for all MalariaWorld content. It automatically creates rich semantic metadata for the content you submit – in well under a second. Using natural language processing (NLP), machine learning and other methods, MalariaWorld analyzes your document and finds the entities within it. But it goes well beyond classic entity identification and returns the facts and events hidden within your text as well.

What does it mean? It means that all our content is being prepared for consumption by search robots. It makes searching our site a breeze.
