With the development of Internet, there is lots of information on theInternet. Many applications have been developed to collection data (e.g.web pages) from the Internet, and try to discover useful information orknowledge from the collected data. The most popular examples of such kindof applications are search engines, like Google, Bing, etc. However, inmost cases, the crawlers used in these applications cannot understand thecontents of the web pages, so they just download the whole pages and leavethe parsing work for humans or other applications. And in fact the parsingwork is very tedious. Recently, Semantic Web technologies have beenproposed and adopted in many applications. In Semantic Web, the computerscan understand the contents of the web pages. It will be very useful tobuild some kind of semantic-enabled web crawler and parser that canunderstand the contents of the web pages. The goal of this topic/project isto build such kind web crawler and parser.
