Briefing Papers | Arts and Humanities E-Science Support Centre

AHeSSC's series of briefing papers tackle specfic areas of interest to the arts and humanities e-science early adopter community. The subject matter is broadly defined - they can describe relatively focused types of application (although they are not wholly concerned with specific instances - these are described in the case studies); or they can address broader topical areas.

Suggestions for collaboration on new briefing papers are always welcome. Please contact AHeSSC if you would like to suggest a topic.

Web services

SUMMARY

The Internet, as most people use it, consists out of texts written for humans that do not support software interaction well. Web services try to correct this by providing the information in a format that can be understood by software applications. They are about machine-to-machine interaction.
