The Semantic Web: What, why, how, and when

Research output: Contribution to JournalReview articleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The Semantic Web aims to enrich the Web with a layer of machine-interpretable metadata so that computer programs can predictably derive new information. This goal will require the development of metadata syntax and vocabularies, and the creation of metadata for lots of Web pages.
