Re:AKT spreads the wordJane Whild, Monday 09 December 2002 | Annotate
Hot off the press, the Re:AKT newsletter is spreading the word about the AKT project – describing its goals and ambitions, results and achievements, and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. KMi are a member of the AKT consortium together with the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Sheffield, and Southampton. Funded by the EPSRC, the £7m, 6-year AKT project aims to develop and extend a range of technologies providing integrated methods and services for the capture, modelling, publishing, reuse and management of knowledge. According to AKT Director, Prof. Nigel Shadbolt, Re:AKT articulates the assumptions behind the SemanticWeb and how AKT is tackling one of the great challenges of the 21st Century – realising the potential of the extraordinary information repository that humankind is building.
