So in this effort we may actually be defining a dynamic computing model that can, under certain conditions, be ‘trained’ to appropriately ‘learn’ the meaning of related cloud & infrastructure resources based on an common ontology / taxonomy. In a sense, we are talking about the Semantic Web applied to API’s or more broadly, a unified cloud interface.
What is the Semantic Web and why does it matter for a unified cloud interface?
TheWikipedia describes the semantic webas “a vision of information that is understandable by computers, so that they can perform more of the tedious work involved in finding, sharing and combining information on the web.”
