Author David Stuart
ImprintChicago : ALA Neal-Schuman, 2016

"Today more data and information are being produced and shared than ever before; data is streaming forth from new online social behaviours as well as high-specification digital tools and instruments. If we are to extract the maximum value from this data then we need to make use of the most appropriate tools and technologies. Ontologies, formal representations of knowledge with rich semantic relationships, are one such tool, and the focus of this book"-- Page [1]
