A Review of Piggy Bank and How it Compares to SADIe

Simon Harper, Darren Lunn

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    The Semantic Web vision is one where information and presentation are separated in order for automated tools and computer agents to find and extract the information that the user wants more accurately. To be able to do this, machines will need to be able to freely access data and information contained within web documents and for these documents to be reasoned over. Piggy Bank is a tool which attempts to extract pure data from a web page in order to provide users with some of the information retrieval power of the Semantic Web without fully adopting the tools and technologies that will be required for the Semantic Web to come into existence. SADIe is a tool that uses the structure of the web page in order to transcode it so that it better suits the accessibility needs of the user. This paper will look at what Piggy bank can do with the data it extracts from a web page and how this compares with SADIe.@unpublished{hcwlab58, number = {SADIe Technical Report 2}, month = {November}, author = {Darren Lunn}, note = {SADIe Technical Report 2}, type = {Discussion Paper}, address = {School of Computer Science}, title = {A Review of Piggy Bank and How it Compares to SADIe}, publisher = {Human Centred Web Lab}, year = {2005}, institution = {The University of Manchester}, keywords = {SADIe, Semantic Web, Screen Scraping, Annotation}, url = {http://wel-eprints.cs.manchester.ac.uk/58/}}
