SEMANTIC SICILY is a project led by PMF Research which involved 23 Sicilian SMEs. The consortium goal is the research and development in the field of the Semantic Web for the increasing number of types of information. The technological platform employed in the project is based on modern techniques of cloud computing, which means that instead of running locally, the applications run in a data center shared by the partners of the project. The objective of the project is thus to develop a semantic core platform shared by all partners and distributed on cloud computing hardware. The semantic core platform is used as the starting point for the development of applications in the field of e-learning, semantic document management, semantic networks, voice recognition and text mining, real-time translation, reverse engineering, semantic web gis, ERP, etc.
PMF Research incorporates a semantic engine purposely made by CNR into the e-learning platform. The integration allows the insertion of supplementary material related to the contents of the platform itself.
