Hailing a Taxi on the Web of Needs

Poster & Demo

Matchmaking and cooperation are interactions widely available within internet-based platforms. However, to start using such functionality, one must first become a member of the platform. In an effort to push matchmaking and cooperation into the protocol stack of the Web, we demonstrate how an existing taxi service is integrated with a decentralized Web based infrastructure, the Web of Needs (WoN), using a chatbot that can be programmed declaratively to enter into certain types of agreements with users. The bot mediates between an existing Web service and users of the RDF-based WoN network.
