The Semantic Web = a Web with a meaning.


Semantic web can be defined as a web that is able to describe things in a way that computers can understand.
  • Alter Bridge is a popular American rock band
  • Mark Tremonti  is Alter Bridge's lead guitars and backing vocalist
  • "Watch Over You" was recorded by Alter Bridge

The Semantic Web = a Web with a meaning.

Sentences like these can be easily understood by people. But how can a computer understand them?
So basically, statements are built with syntax rules.The syntax of a language defines the rules for building the language statements.But how can syntax become semantic?

The Semantic Web describes the relationships between things (like A is a part of B and Y is a member of  Z) and the properties of things (like size, weight, age, and price).

"If HTML and the Web made all the online documents look like one huge book, RDF, schema, and inference languages will make all the data in the world look like one huge database"
Tim Berners-Lee, Weaving the Web, 1999
