Web 3.0

The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners. It is based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF).

The Semantic Web is the extension of the World Wide Web that enables people to share content beyond the boundaries of applications and websites. It has been described in rather different ways: as a utopic vision, as a web of data, or merely as a natural paradigm shift in our daily use of the Web. Most of all, the Semantic Web has inspired and engaged many people to create innovative semantic technologies and applications. semanticweb.org is the common platform for this community.

You can extend semanticweb.org. Make sure that your favorite semantic tool, event, or ontology is here!

The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.” It is a source to retrieve information from the web(using the web spiders from RDF files) and access the data through Semantic Web Agents or Semantic Web Services. Simply Semantic Web is data about data or metadata. Source: “The Semantic Web” by Tim Berners-Lee, James Hendler, and Ora Lassila, Scientific American, 2001
