Semantic Web Mashup: Wikipedia-Open_Calais-Goggle-Amazon

Do you want to see the power of Semantic Web  mashup services  ?

Then check this out:

http://kapustar.punkt.at/labs/knowledgelounge.org/?q=Semantic%20Web

This is an experimental mashup service from the Semantic Web Company (Credit goes to Rene Kapusta)

What does it do ?

This prototype  shows how to use semantic based  term extraction and the Amazon API to search for relevant books for a specific topic.

How it works

  1. The search input  is send to wikipedia.org
  2. The respective wikipedia page is sent to the Open Calais service to extract the terms
  3. The extracted terms are sent to google, and get enriched by related terms using the google labs service "google suggest".
  4. and last but not least the  terms are sent to the Amazon API and the relevant books from Amazon are displayed

Pretty cool !

Hello Peter!

Thanks for the credits and description of the app!

There is a newer prototype available at: http://researchr.evo42.net/better/ -- now with better search results. Using the Wikipedia Thesaurus from http://wikipedia-lab.org

By the end of the month there will be a "final release" with some other nice features like embedded RDFa...
