In the Search Computing project, Web services are modeled by the Semantic Resource Framework (SRF). In this article, we argue that the SRF could benefit from ontological concepts borrowed from the Semantic Web. We first present the knowledge representation used in the Semantic Web, notably in the YAGO ontology [14]. We show how this model is used in the ANGIE system [12] to represent Web Services in conjunction with YAGO. We draw parallels to the Service Mart [3] model used in SeCo. We propose a symbiosis of the two models, discussing the challenges and advantages that come with the integrated model.
