A Framework for E-Governance System using Linked Data and Belief-desire-intention Agent

E-Governance systems are built for the government to interact with citizens and efficiently provide workflow between the organizations. These systems play major role in efficiently organizing the government knowledge and enabling citizen friendly services. Traditionally E-Governance systems are developed as a requirement basis trend, where the requirement of establishing a service is evaluated and a system for that particular requirement is deployed. A framework has been introduced to develop an E-Governance system in an evolutionary fashion where the core government model is deployed and further services are deployed over the core. The key element in achieving such evolutionary system is by adding semantics to the knowledge which is represented in the form of Linked Data.
