Do you want to see the power of Semantic Web mashup services ?

Then check this out:

http://kapustar.punkt.at/labs/knowledgelounge.org/?q=Semantic%20Web

This is an experimental mashup service from the Semantic Web Company (Credit goes to Rene Kapusta)

What does it do ?

This prototype shows how to use semantic based term extraction and the Amazon API to search for relevant books for a specific topic.

How it works

  1. The search input is send to wikipedia.org
  2. The respective wikipedia page is sent to the Open Calais service to extract the terms
  3. The extracted terms are sent to google, and get enriched by related terms using the google labs service “google suggest“.
  4. and last but not least the terms are sent to the Amazon API and the relevant books from Amazon are displayed

Pretty cool !
