Semantics-Empowered Social Computing

Here's another interesting looking article from the current issue of IEEE Internet Computing.

Amit Sheth and Meenakshi Nagarajan, Semantics-Empowered Social Computing, IEEE Internet Computing, v13n1, 2 pp 76-80, 2009.
"User-generated textual content on social media has unique characteristics owing to the interpersonal and interactional nature of the communication medium. Web 3.0 applications that aim to automatically create accurate annotations from user-generated content to common reference models will have to invariably deal with the informal nature of this content. In this article, the authors discuss opportunities in addressing challenges posed by this content by supplementing traditional statistical and NLP techniques with domain knowledge."
