The field of Semantic Computing brings together those disciplines concerned with connecting the often vaguely formulated intentions of humans with computational content. Edited by the foremost experts in the subject, Semantic Computing provides an in-depth and thorough examination on the state-of-the-art of semantic computing technologies. This fundamental guide for graduate and senior undergraduate students, industrial managers, researchers, and engineers presents cross-disciplinary solutions and their value in solving real life computing and communication problems and examines the art, engineering techniques, and the synergy of this interdisciplinary field and its impact on futuristic applications.
