Semantic Computing (SC) is a rapidly evolving area that combines insights from Computational Linguistics, Semantic Web, Knowledge Engineering, and Software Engineering, with the goal of creating novel technologies and applications that connect intuitively formulated user intentions with the content and meaning of machine-represented data. The user and the content are connected via semantic interfaces, semantic analysis, semantic integration, and semantic applications. A major objective of SC thus is to develop methods for automatically constructing semantic representations from user input.

The e-book "Advances in Semantic Computing" is an open access collection of six chapters covering a spectrum of SC topics. The chapters were reviewed by the e-book's Scientific Review Committee. They are written to be self-contained, providing modularity and flexibility for readers.
