   Bio for Benjamin Grosof

"Benjamin Grosof is Assistant Professor in Information Technology (IT) at MIT Sloan School of Management. His research is to create and study knowledge-based IT for e-commerce applications. He focuses especially on the technologies, business applications, and strategies for Semantic Web Services (SWS), the convergence of Semantic Web and Web Services. SWS is the next major generation of the Web, in which e-services and business communication become more knowledge-based and agent-based. The pioneer of inter-operable XML business rules, he co-leads the RuleML emerging industry standards effort. He designed and leads the SweetRules open source software community platform toolkit for semantic web rules. His research also includes several application areas for rule-based SWS in business process automation: e-contracting, which he has pioneered; business policies, e.g., for trust and security; and financial information and reporting. He is Principal Investigator and Rules co-lead in the DARPA Agent Markup Language (DAML) program, and a core participant in the Semantic Web Services Initiative that is creating emerging SWS standards. He interacts extensively with industry, including to do consulting in areas related to his research and standards activities.
