The Internet has become an integral part of human life, yet the web still utilizes mundane interfaces to the physical world, which makes Internet operations somewhat mechanical, tedious, and less human-oriented. Filling a large void in the literature, Intelligent Technologies for Web Applications is one of the first books to focus on providing vital fundamental and advanced guidance in the area of Web intelligence for beginners and researchers.
The book covers techniques from diverse areas of research, including:
- Natural language processing
- Information extraction, retrieval, and filtering
- Knowledge representation and management
- Machine learning
- Data, web, and text mining
- Human–computer interaction
- Semantic web technologies
To develop effective and intelligent web applications and services, it is critical to discover useful knowledge through analyzing large amounts of content, hidden content structures, or usage patterns of web data resources. Intended to improve and reinforce problem-solving methods in this area, this book delves into the hybridization of artificial intelligence (AI) and web technologies to help simplify complex Web operations. It introduces readers to the state-of-the art development of web intelligence techniques and teaches how to apply these techniques to develop the next generation of intelligent Web applications.
The book lays out presented projects, case studies, and innovative ideas, which readers can explore independently as standalone research projects. This material facilitates experimentation with the book’s content by including fundamental tools, research directions, practice questions, and additional reading.

Rajendra Akerkar is a professor/senior researcher at the Western Norway Research Institute (Vestlandsforsking), Norway. His research and teaching experience includes over 20 years in the Academia spanning different universities in Asia, Europe and North America. As founder, he is instrumental in ensuring that the Technomathematics Research Foundation (TMRF) lends a platform for research in India. Under his leadership, TMRF has become one of the well-known organizations amongst the research community worldwide. His current research agenda basically concentrates on learning and language - how each works in the human and how they can be replicated in a machine. He received DAAD fellowship in 1990 and also awarded prestigious BOYSCASTS Young Scientist award of Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, in 1997. He is an Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Computer Science & Applications, and Associate Editor of International Journal of Metadata, Ontologies and Semantics. He is
