Semantic Web

The Semantic Web is a mesh of data that are associated in such a way that they can easily be processed by machines instead of human operators. It can be conceived as an extended version of the existing World Wide Web, and it represents an effective means of data representation in the form of a globally linked database. By supporting the inclusion of semantic content in Web pages, the Semantic Web targets the conversion of the presently available Web of unstructured documents to a Web of information/data. The term Semantic Web was coined by Tim Berners-Lee.

Intelligent Systems

Intelligent System (IS) can be defined as the system that incorporates intelligence into applications being handled by machines. Intelligent systems perform search and optimization along with learning capabilities. Different types of machine learning such as supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning can be modeled in designing intelligent systems. Intelligent systems also perform complex automated tasks which are not possible by traditional computing paradigm. Various diagnostic, robotics and engineering systems are results of intelligent procedures implemented in Intelligent System Design.

Big Data

Big data refers to a process that is used when traditional data mining and handling techniques cannot uncover the insights and meaning of the underlying data. Data that is unstructured or time sensitive or simply very large cannot be processed by relational database engines. This type of data requires a different processing approach called big data, which uses massive parallelism on readily-available hardware.

Internet of Things

The internet of things (IoT) is a computing concept that describes the idea of everyday physical objects being connected to the internet and being able to identify themselves to other devices. The term is closely identified with RFID as the method of communication, although it also may include other sensor technologies, wireless technologies or QR codes.

Knowledge-Based Software Engineering

Knowledge-based software engineering is focused in automating the software engineering life cycle, software engineering resources which are shifting towards knowledge acquisition and the automated reuse of expert knowledge for developing software artifacts. Knowledge in software applications is becoming more significant because the domains of many software applications are inherently knowledge-intensive and this knowledge is often not explicitly dealt with in software development.

Machine Learning

Machine learning is an artificial intelligence (AI) discipline geared toward the technological development of human knowledge. Machine learning allows computers to handle new situations via analysis, self-training, observation and experience. Machine learning facilitates the continuous advancement of computing through exposure to new scenarios, testing and adaptation, while employing pattern and trend detection for improved decisions in subsequent (though not identical) situations. Machine learning is often confused with data mining and knowledge discovery in databases (KDD), which share a similar methodology.
