Semantic Web

Overview

Searching, classification/ontologies, and the Semantic Web are closely linked...they each deal with the ability for people to find and user information on the Web. The semantic web consists of "information about information" (i.e. metadata) that will largely be unnoticed by average web users...much of the effort of the semantic web addresses the need of making information "machine readable". Tim Berners-Lee details it as "...an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation."


Introduction to the Semantic Web and RDF
"The Semantic Web will augment the existing human-readable Web with structured data that's easy for software to process."

The Semantic Web: An Introduction
"The Semantic Web is a mesh of information linked up in such a way as to be easily processable by machines, on a global scale. You can think of it as being an efficient way of representing data on the World Wide Web, or as a globally linked database."
