Special Issue on Software Engineering for Web Intelligence
Jonathan Lee and Jong Yih Kuo
Software engineering, in applying engineering to software, advocates the application of systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approaches to development, operation, and maintenance of software. Software engineering is also considered a transformational process that models the real world on a corresponding software world. Recent advances in software engineering applied to Web intelligence have been recognized as a wave in scientific research and development, exploring basic roles and practical impact of advanced information technology on next-generation Web-empowered products, systems, and services. Various web systems and services currently provide many benefits to users, with Web intelligence becoming increasingly important in research and business. Such Web intelligent systems have been realized through related technologies as software engineering, interactive machine learning, etc.
This special issue brings together researchers who have inspired software engineering in Web intelligence. Submissions have been reviewed for relevance, originality, significance, and presentation based on JACIII review criteria. This special issue presents four papers describing outstanding studies on project management, service-oriented architecture, semantic Web technologies, and service composition planning in Web intelligence. All papers introduce promising approaches and interesting results that readers will find highly relevant!
We believe that software engineering in Web Intelligence has tremendous potential as a new, active research field, and we hope this issue will motivate researchers to expand their own studies on software engineering in Web Intelligence.
