DAML Research Project


KSL's DARPA Agent Markup Language (DAML) Project, DAML-Based Services, Document Templates and Query Answering is a DARPA sponsored program with the goal of developing next generation semantic web tools and technology. Prof. Richard Fikes is Principal Investigator on this project. Dr. Deborah McGuinness is the Project Manager and is leading KSL's involvement in the development of the DAML language as well as KSL's tools efforts. Dr. Sheila McIlraith is the Technical Lead on the DAML-Enabled Web Services project.
