Scalable Uncertainty Management
MetadataShow full item record
Originally, managing uncertainty and inconsistency has especially been explored in the field of artificial intelligence. During recent years, particularly with theavailability of massive amounts of data in different repositories and the possibility of integrating and exploiting these data, technologies for managing uncertainty and inconsistency have started to play a key role in databases and the Web. Some of the most prominent of these technologies are probably the ranking algorithms behind Web search engines. Techniques for handling uncertainty and inconsistency are expected to play a similarly important role in the Semantic Web.
