The idea of a ‘Semantic Web' involves computers being “capable of analysing all the data on the Web – the content, links, transactions between people and computers.”
This idea was laid down by one of the founding fathers of the Internet and worked on by researchers later.
Dr. James Hendler, an artificial intelligence researcher at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA, and one of the co-founders of the Semantic Web, is at the head of the ‘Tetherless World Constellation' which works to enhance the Web's reach beyond your PC or laptop and develop new technology to that expand the capabilities of the Web.
Recently Dr Hendler spoke to eWorld about the evolution of the Web, the Semantic Web and its evolution.
