How is the Semantic Web vision unfolding and what does it take for the Web to fully reach its potential and evolve from a Web of Documents to a Web of Data through universal data representation standards.
How and why Semantic Web Standards are to serve the Web of Data for better collaboration between people through computers. The technology standards of the Semantic Web enable more and more enterprises, application builders and information retrieval systems to handle data in cost-effective and agile manner.
