Need & Concept of Web 3.0 – The Semantic Web Basics

Posted on

Short Intro: In this blog I am going to cover simplest intro to Semantic Web’s concept, It’s needs and the way we will be going to adopt it… So have a nice journey to this blog.

Why we need a new technology?

Data is present everywhere on web. That is generally hidden in HTML files and is often useful in some situations, but not in others. The problem with the majority of data on the Web that is in this form at the moment is that it is difficult to use on a large scale, because there is no global system for publishing data in such a way as it can be easily processed by anyone. As an example, the information about weather forecast, local sports events, plane schedules, Major League Football statistics, and TV channel guides… all of this information is presented by numerous sites, but all in HTML. The problem with that is, in some contexts, it is difficult to use this data in the ways that one might want to have it in a form. So the Semantic Web can be seen as a huge engineering solution… but it is more than that. We will find that as it becomes easier to publish data in a re-purposable form, so more people will want to publish data, and there will be a incidental and effect. We may find that a large number of Semantic Web applications can be used for a variety of different tasks, increasing the modularity of applications on the Web.

The Concept:

The concept of Semantic Web was first thought up by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of WWW, URIs, HTTP. And now Semantic Web is under research phase all over the world. Read the rest of this entry »
