What is Semantic Web?

W3C Semantic Web

I’ve seen many discussions about Semantic Web on the blogosphere this year and didn’t really understand what is Semantic Web. As usually, I did a Google search and the first link showed up was from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

” The Semantic Web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which the semantics of information and services on the web is defined, making it possible for the web to understand and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the web content. It derives from W3C director Tim Berners-Lee’s vision of the Web as a universal medium for data, information, and knowledge exchange.”

On the left is a logo owned by W3C for Semantic Web. ” The three sides of the cube dig at the triplet in RDF. The peeled lid is meant to invite people to open their data to the Semantic Web.”

How wonderful it is to be able to witness the rapid development of the Internet technologies?
