Computing isn't simply about hardware or software, or calculation or applications. Computing, writes Paul Rosenbloom, is an exciting and diverse, yet remarkably coherent, scientific enterprise that is highly multidisciplinary yet maintains a unique core of its own. In On Computing, Rosenbloom proposes that computing is a great scientific domain on a par with the physical, life, and social sciences.
Integrates two powerful software approaches to dramatically enhance enterprise computingBased on the author's own course materials, this book takes enterprise computing to the next level by offering readers a tested and proven method for applying semantic web tools to model-driven software engineering. It integrates and takes advantage of the latest advances from such disciplines as ontologies, description logics, domain-specific modeling, model transformation, and ontology engineering. Before advancing to practical applications, Semantic Web and Model-Driven Engineering lays a foundation of fundamental concepts.
