What is Turing's Test? What is G del's UndecidabilityTheorem? How is Berners-Lee's Semantic Web logic going to overcomeparadoxes and complexity to produce machine processing on theWeb?
Thinking on the Web draws from the contributions of TimBerners-Lee (What is solvable on the Web?), Kurt G del (Whatis decidable?), and Alan Turing (What is machine intelligence?) toevaluate how much "intelligence" can be projected onto the Web.
The authors offer both abstract and practical perspectives todelineate the opportunities and challenges of a "smarter" Webthrough a threaded series of vignettes and a thorough review ofSemantic Web development.
