Readings for today’s class (Feb 26)

We are going to look at two areas related to document databases, the semantic web and multimedia retrieval.  These might also prove to be a source of inspiration for your course project.

There are two books on the CU Chinook Library website that we will look at.  They are:

Multimedia Retrieval, by Blanken et al., published by Springer.

Spinning the Semantic Web: Bringing the World Wide Web to Its Full Potential by Fensel et al, published by MIT Press.
