Adding semantics to the Web
The ‘Semantic Web’ can be thought of as the next generation of the Web where computers can aid humans with their daily web-related tasks as more meaningful structured information is added to the Web (manually and automatically). For example, using a combination of facts like ‘John works_at NUI Galway’, ‘Mary knows John’, ‘John is a Person’, ‘Mary is a Person’, ‘NUI Galway is an Organisation’, ‘A Person works_at an Organisation’, and ‘A Person knows a Person’, you can allow computers to answer relatively straightforward questions like ‘Find me all the people who know others who work at NUI Galway’ which at the moment is quite difficult for us to do without some manual processing of information returned from search results.
