A Cooperative Paradigm for Fighting Information Overload

Publication Date
  • Linguistics


The Web is mainly processed by humans. The role of the machines is just to transmit and display the contents of the documents, barely being able to do something else. Nowadays there are lots of initiatives trying to change this situation; many of them are related to fields like the Semantic Web [1] or Web Intelligence. In this paper we describe the Cooperative Web [2] that can be seen as a new proposal towards Web Intelligence. The Cooperative Web would allow us to extract semantics from the Web in an automatic way, without the need of ontological artifacts, with language independence and, besides of this, allowing the usage of browsing experience from individual users to serve the whole community of users.
