The web is evolving from a repository and provider of text and images to a provider of services -- both information-providing services, and services that have some effect on the world. Today's web was designed primarily for human interpretation and human use. Nevertheless, we are seeing increased automation of service interoperation, primarily in B2B and E-Commerce applications. Under the auspices of the DARPA Agent Markup Language (DAML) Program , Stanford Knowledge System's Lab's DAML-Enabled Web Services Project seeks 1) to create semantic markup of web services that enables them to be computer-interpretable, use-apparent, and agent-ready; and 2) to develop agent technology that exploits this semantic markup to support automated interoperability of web services. For further information on this research project, please contact Dr. Sheila McIlraith.
