Semantic Web

Overview

Semantic Web technology is an increasingly popular technology which enables the conceptualization and formalization of domain knowledge in order to support diversified and automated knowledge processing performed by a machine. Through an optimal combination of cognitive human reasoning and automated machine processing it becomes possible for humans and machines to share more and more complementary tasks.

The spectrum of applications is extremely large including corporate portals and knowledge management, e-commerce, e-business, healthcare, e-government, information search, data and services integration, social networks and collaborative filtering, knowledge mining, business intelligence and so on. From a social and economic perspective, Semantic Web technology contributes to growth in economic wealth, but it also shows clear cut value for everyday activities through technological transparency and efficiency.

Benefits

Key benefits of the applying Semantic Web technology include:

  • Effective transformation of information into knowledge. Whereas information is discrete data about a specific subject, knowledge is information that is linked or synthesized together in a valuable way.
  • Greater interoperability and integration of data through their mapping to a common domain model.
  • Ability to discover data relationships through the application of rules and inferencing logic that would otherwise not be as easily detected when using other conventional technologies.
