DartGrid: A Semantic Grid and Application for Traditional Chinese Medicine

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4088)


The rapid growth of web along with the increasing decentralization of organizational structures has led to the creation of a vast interconnected network of distributed electronic information in many fields such as medical science, bioinformatics, high-energy physics etc. The data produced and the knowledge derived from it will lose value in the future if the mechanisms for sharing, integration, cataloging, searching, viewing, and retrieving are not quickly improved. Building upon techniques from both Semantic Web [1] and Grid [2] research areas, we propose the DartGrid [3][4] which exhibits a Dynamic, Adaptive, RDF-mediated and Transparent (DART) approach for building semantic grid applications.
