Summary

A web built around HTML, or even XML, is limited by the fact that there is no inherent way to infer meaning from markup. The semantic web initiative provides technologies and tools that support the addition of a meaning layer above the conventional web, using URIs to define the points in space. Through a technology stack that includes the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL), the goal of the semantic web is the creation of machine-readable descriptions that allow content managers to add meaning to content, thereby opening the door to automated information-gathering and research by computers.
