COHSE: Informed WWW Link Navigation Using Ontologies

The aim of this project is to research into methods to improve significantly the quality, consistency and breadth of linking of WWW documents at retrieval time (as readers browse the documents) and authoring time (as authors create the documents). It plans to produce a COHSE (Conceptual Open Hypermedia Services Environment) using three leading-edge technologies:

  1. an ontological reasoning service which is used to represent a sophisticated conceptual model of document terms and their relationships;
  2. a Web-based open hypermedia link service that can offer a range of different link-providing facilities in a scalable and non-intrusive fashion;
  3. the integration of the ontology service and the open hypermedia link service to form a conceptual hypermedia system to enable documents to be linked via metadata describing their contents;

The result of the integration will be evaluated and refined with two real case study applications drawn from commercial collaborators.
