The Intelligent Wireless Web
The Intelligent Wireless Web provides for the reader both a preview of the Web's "near future" as well as an overview and discussion of the technology components in place today that will lead to that future.
The book examines the convergence and synergy among five key technological components: speech used as a primary user interface; wireless personal area networks (WPANs); an integrated wired/wireless network infrastructure; supporting wireless protocols; and intelligent applications. It investigates available technologies and standards that are currently being developed to bring these goals into the mainstream of Internet use.
- Speech recognition and understanding text-to-speech generators, and Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML)
- Personal Area Networks (PANs),Bluetooth(TM), Jini(TM), and Universal Plug & Play
- Spread Spectrum, wireless networks, and the IEEE 802.11 standard
- Wireless handheld devices and third-generation TDMA and CDMA
- Mobile IP, Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), and Wireless Markup Language (WML)
- Web Services, .NET, J2EE(TM), SOAP, UDDI, WSDL, and XML
- Machine learning and Distributed Artificial Intelligence
- Semantic Web Architecture
Ongoing research projects, such as MIT's Project OXYGEN, are used throughout to illustrate elements of the intelligent wireless Web in action. With an understanding of the trends, goals, and technologies described in The Intelligent Wireless Web, you will be well-positioned to develop your own strategic planning for the coming world of the ubiquitous Internet.
