The Semantic Web (Postgraduate)

The idea of putting semantic information on the Web has been around for a long time: we now have the beginnings of a practical application. This has its foundations in what is called Description Logic, which strikes a good balance between tractability and usability. This has led to a Web language called OWL, which is at the centre of modern work on the Semantic Web: there are now useful implementations, and there are workable, if modest, applications of this technology.
