Semantic Web Mashup: Wikipedia-Open_Calais-Goggle-Amazon
By me on Mar 18, 2008
Do you want to see the power of Semantic Web mashup services ?
Then check this out:
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
- The search input is send to wikipedia.org
- The respective wikipedia page is sent to the Open Calais service to extract the terms
- The extracted terms are sent to google, and get enriched by related terms using the google labs service "google suggest".
- and last but not least the terms are sent to the Amazon API and the relevant books from Amazon are displayed
Pretty cool !
