Semantic Web of Things
The Semantic Web of Things is an emerging vision in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), joining together some of the most important paradigms of the decade: the Semantic Web and the Internet of Things.
The Semantic Web initiative  aims at allowing available information in the World Wide Web to be seamlessly shared, reused and combined by software agents. Each available resource in the semantic-enabled Web should be properly described in order to infer new information from the one stated in the semantically annotated resource descriptions.
The Internet of Things vision  promotes on a global scale the ubiquitous computing paradigm. In ubiquitous and pervasive contexts, intelligence is embedded into objects and physical locations by means of a large number of heterogeneous micro-devices, such as RFID tags or sensors, each conveying a small amount of information. Due to space, power and cost constraints, devices are usually endowed with very low storage, little or no processing capabilities and short-range, low-throughput wireless links allowing only a simple service/resource fruition.
In scope of this research area, at the end of 2014 we received funding from the Ministy of Education and Science for SemIoT project.
