This investigation of novel, model-based techniques for semantic search on the Web shows how these new methods, using the extra data to be found on the Semantic Web, augment and improve traditional search results based on information retrieval technology.

Review:

"This book is the only one I have encountered that is deeply centered on data--or, more precisely, on effective and scalable methods and techniques for accessing information from the web, the world’s largest and most volatile database. [...] It goes deeply into several different aspects of the topic. [...] The editors of this book have done a good job of covering interesting topics and making the book readable as a whole. The chapters present deep insight into the research results of top teams, as evidenced by several well-known names among the contributors." M. Bielikova, ACM Computing Reviews, August 2013

From the Back Cover:

The Web has become the world’s largest database, with search being the main tool that allows  organizations and individuals to exploit its huge amount of information. Search on the Web has been traditionally based on textual and structural similarities, ignoring to a large degree the semantic dimension, i.e., understanding the meaning of the query and of the document content. Combining search and semantics gives birth to the idea of semantic search. Traditional search engines have already advertised some semantic dimensions. Some of them, for instance, can enhance their generated result sets with documents that are semantically related to the query terms even though they may not include these terms. Nevertheless, the exploitation of the semantic search has not yet reached its full potential.

In this book, Roberto De Virgilio, Francesco Guerra and Yannis Velegrakis present an extensive overview of the work done in Semantic Search and other related areas. They explore different technologies and solutions in depth, making their collection a valuable and stimulating reading for both academic and industrial researchers.

The book is divided into three parts. The first introduces the readers to the basic notions of the Web of Data. It describes the different kinds of data that exist, their topology, and their storing and indexing techniques. The second part is dedicated to Web Search. It presents different types of search, like the exploratory or the path-oriented, alongside methods for their efficient and effective implementation. Other related topics included in this part are the use of uncertainty in query answering, the exploitation of ontologies, and the use of semantics in mashup design and operation. The focus of the third part is on linked data, and more specifically, on applying ideas originating in recommender systems on linked data management, and on techniques for the efficiently querying answering on linked data.
