Understanding the Semantic Web
The Semantic Web refers to an envisioned extension of the existing World Wide Web that enhances the Web with machine-interpretable metadata and data.
It aims to provide computers and software programs with the ability to understand and interpret information meaningfully, similar to how humans process information to accomplish tasks.
Unlocking Data’s Potential
The Semantic Web aims to enable computers to manipulate information on our behalf, making it easier for machines to understand and process data.
Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web, introduced the concept of the Semantic Web.
The term “semantic” refers to the machine-processable nature of the data and the ability of machines to perform operations with that data.
Empowering the Web’s Intelligence
In practice, the Semantic Web involves adding additional data descriptors to existing content and data on the web.
Incorporating linked and connected data and intelligent content creates a knowledge graph that facilitates machine understanding and processing of information at a large scale.
The Semantic Web has the potential to enhance customer experiences by enabling content to understand and present itself in the most relevant and valuable forms tailored to specific customer needs.
By adhering to Semantic Web standards, we can unlock the ability for online content to be presented in a way that machines can understand, connect, and combine.
In summary, the Semantic Web aims to make the web more intelligent by enriching data and enabling machines to comprehend and process information more effectively.
