Programming for Intelligent Web Services and Applications KIT405



In this unit you will learn about the advanced web technologies that enable the service providers to provide services intelligently and the user can use the web and other resources conveniently. Such that the technologies covered in this unit include the information collection technologies (e.g., crawling and monitoring), the information processing technologies (e.g., index, classification, information extraction, and human computation), and the information service technologies (e.g., Web services, cloud services, search engines, and recommendation).

For each technology, you will learn about the underlying concepts, design space, and tradeoffs. As each technology itself is too vast (sometimes a unit covers only each topic), the lectures provided will not cover all aspects of each technologies; rather the lectures try to provide a starting point of understanding for the specific technologies. With the technologies discussed in the lecture, students will explore one or two specific problems in the following week and present their research results in the following class. In addition to research, the students are required to choose one technology to specialise his/her understanding and also required to use the technology to develop a system for an advance web application.

At the end of this course, a student should understand the current web intelligent web technologies and be able to provide design recommendations for a particular application domain.
