The semantic web: a key to smarter natural language interfaces

The semantic web: a key to smarter natural language interfaces | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Natural language user interfaces show great promise for a variety of situations, but Nuance Communications CTO Vlad Sejnoha sees a need for standard formats if new entrants aren’t to be blocked as data sources.

 

The semantic web, a term coined by Tim Berners-Lee, is an initiative being developed under the auspices of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It aims, through the use of standardized tags and formats, to build a framework where content on the web has machine-understandable meaning, rather than simply being searchable by keyword.

Wikidata, the first new project to emerge from the Wikimedia Foundation since 2006, is now beginning development.


There have been other attempts at creating a semantic database built from Wikipedia’s data before – for example, DBpedia, a community effort to extract structured content from Wikipedia and make it available online.
