What is the Semantic Web?
The Semantic Web is a vision for the future of the World Wide Web (WWW) in which the meaning and context of data on the web is made explicit, allowing machines to understand and process it in a more meaningful way. It is based on the idea of creating a web of data that is interconnected and machine-readable, in contrast to the current web, which is primarily designed for human consumption.
The Semantic Web is built on a set of standards and technologies, including the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the Web Ontology Language (OWL), which are used to represent and exchange data on the web. These standards allow data to be annotated with additional information about its meaning and context, making it more meaningful and useful to machines.
The Semantic Web has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with data on the web, enabling more powerful and sophisticated searches, more intelligent and personalized applications, and more effective data integration and interoperability. It has applications in a wide range of fields, including knowledge management, e-commerce, and scientific research.
