Semantic Technologies as Enabler for Distributed Adaptive Hyperlink Generation

by Ruben Verborgh, Mathias Verhoeven, Erik Mannens, and Rik Van de Walle

It is difficult for publishers to include the right links in documents, because they cannot predict all actions their users might want to perform. Existing adaptive navigation systems can generate relevant links, but doing this on a Web scale is non-trivial, especially if the targets are dynamic actions. As a result, adaptation often happens in a centralized way on a limited or closed document and action set. Distributed affordance is a technology to automatically generate links from any Web resource to matching actions from an open set of Web services, based on semantic annotations. In this paper, we indicate how this technology can be applied to adaptive navigation. We investigate how the generated links can be represented and how their relevance can be guaranteed. Based on that, we conclude that semantic technologies are an enabler to perform adaptive navigation to dynamic actions in a distributed way.
